Money Always leads to Injustice, Control and Power Over those that Have Less
The World with Money
Money has gone far beyond legal tender for an exchange in goods and services. Money has become a business unto itself. The drive to make more money and wield more power is an addiction worse than heroin.
Money makes interest in banks and loans
Money makes more interest in all manners of stock
There will always be people with less as long as there is money. Those that have more money will seek out more control and subjugate those that have less money and make those people bad, wrong, ignorant and stupid. while keeping those judgements secret. The power-possessors with huge amounts of money and greedy for more will make sure that those that make significantly less will be the slaves of the power-possessors and will by design be kept ignorant of what the power-possessors are doing with them.
Those that have less money will driven to make more of it but that money will never be enough to live on. Consumeristic – capitalism requires that those who make less money spend it to further the economy thus keeping them in a cycle of perpetual and functional poverty. Consumeristic-Capitalism is based on planned obsolescence, shoddy second and third rate products and services that can be parsed into smaller packages and sold for increasingly more money. Those manufacturing products are using less than satisfactory materials often under “sweat-shop” pressures to make more. They are not paid well. Only top management makes a livable wage. The company and shareholders profit the most.
In the era before the 1980s Capitalism may have been paired with Materialism where skill, craft, durable goods and valued services were offered and sold. The economy at that time was based on the growth of the income lower and middle-classes which in-turn fueled a healthy capitalistic economy.
Automation is making many kinds of work obsolete.
The World without Money
Imagine if it were all free no money?
No banks, no interest, no stock market. All labor, services and products would have equal value. Though no monetary value would be placed on products and services a value based on skill pride and a sense of community could evolve.
I can’t imagine it, but I would like to work on it.
