Money rules the world and causes more problems than it solves.
Money is something that tends to command and control everything in life. Everyone needs money to survive in one way or another. We work to earn money and spend money to survive. It’s an endless cycle. The pursuit of money can lead to greed and selfishness and honestly tends to be the root of most problems in life, but then ends up being the solution to a lot of it, too.
I often wonder what life would be like if we didn’t have to deal with money and just traded goods like in the old days? Wouldn’t it make things so much simpler? We wouldn’t have to steal and feel like some people are lesser than others. We would all be equals with no homeless people or people who can’t afford health care or food for people in general. Maybe it would work, right? We could dream, anyway.
Whether or not we want it, money is something that needs to be used more wisely and cautiously in life. People use it to get what they want, and often times they don’t care so much about anything else. Money can make people into selfish and greedy humans that only care about themselves. So we have to fix that the best way we can.
