    what life would be like w/o money?

    i hate money. at the same time, i need it. i hate the idea that we need money to survive. and YES you can argue with me and say "well thats not necessarily true, you can use other resources"

    fact of the matter is, when you boil it all down, you need money to do just about anything. and it sucks.
    Yes, thats how life is, and thats how the world works.

    but IF we didnt have money, how far off would the world be? I mean yah it takes money to invent new things, or to do research or to rule a country. BUT if money wasnt in the picture, you could still invent and research. B/c those things you would need would be available ALL the time....you just might have to ration to be sure that people wouldnt abuse the free things.

    bah...nevermind.

    i just hate money.

    Yeah, I hate money too. Everyone should just share the stuff they need; simple as that.

    Replace "apple" with "oil". It's started already.

    I've thought about how great the world would be without money but if you think about it technology wouldn't have advanced for shit without money. We'd all be like the Amish.

    If there were no money, there would still be some sort of system of trade... Everything has a value, so in a way we could never be without money...

    Greed isn't a result of money, money is a result of greed

    Money is a tool... Sort of a standardized resource... Of course all things can be taken advantage of.
