I forgot this pump:
All of our recent wars were started under fake pretenses. They were designed to make more money. The profit made from WWI alone was well into the billions. War is evil and heartless. Did you every hear of Normandy? That's one example of many examples in our 4 most recent wars. The pure horror that millions have faced in the name of money is unthinkable and still happening!!! We, as humans are capable of doing infinitely better for ourselves but the money goggles are profoundly blinding and that's where our serious issues have spawned from.
The banking & finance industry are fcking crooks. One of the biggest problems with money is when people make obscene profits by just moving it around and taking a percentage cut for themselves. Nothing is produced but as long as you are moving enough of the green around you will be handsomely rewarded.
Just ask the insurance salesmen. Their scam goes something like this. "Hey you should be in this policy. It's sooo much better than the one you have. It won't cost you a cent to change. You'll just fill out some paperwork and send your premiums to a different company." Meanwhile, he pockets 50% of the first year's premium as a commission.
Money is made possible only by the men who produce. Is this what you consider evil?
No, goods and services are made by men who produce, CURRENCY represents stored labor/goods and ACTS as a medium of exchange but is backed up by a commodity
MONEY is created and then assigned a value by FIAT decree and legal tender laws, instead of letting the market assign value.
examples of market finding values with currency: 3 oz silver for a barrel of crude, or a gram of silver for 10 apples, etc
currency can be valuable and used as medium of exchange or otherwise
Money is manipulated and only propped up by legal tender laws
cue gold standard, pm backed currency debate:
pros, more honest,
cons, slow growing economy
there are many problems with economics, it's not a science, despite what others may say, what we have isn't working, obviously when 80 people control the same amount of resources as 3.5 billion, that's a problem.
capitalism works, crony capitalism where gvt backs certain corpos and bars entry to small business via regulation and fees etc will stagnate and destroy free trade among men

money is only worth the value of what the public sees it at.money today is legal tender,meaning it isn't redeemable.before 1914 a dollar was worth a thingy of silver.today its worth nothing.
money is created out of thin air,numbers on a computer.money doesn't mean much to me,i always lived without it so it doesn't bother me.aslong as the bills get paid and I have time to surf,i don't need anything else
Money is not the root of all evil. It's the love of money that is. Money can be used for good, just as it can for bad. It's people that screw it up, not the little green pieces of paper. Just as guns aren't necessarily bad, it's people that kill people, not the gun itself.
now its going bad again. possible we will be treated to a real time (sure hope not) blood bath on the evening
news. the girl with the pretty mouth is now being stalked with the cross hairs of a rifle scope.
