Why do we value money so much?

Why is it that we as people value money so much? We put a value on human life, and it seems to be in terms of monetary value. That is why lifesaving medicine costs so much, and those who can't afford it are left hung out to dry. Why are things this way? Where did we all go so wrong that we put a price tag on people. We fight wars for oil, and money. We avoid stepping in to help others because of money. It is very sad to me :-(

Well I guess its because of the fact that money makes everything in this world go around. I do get your point, and indeed it is very sad since its put to negative use. :(

Money - This is a photo of money.
I have a tendency to agree with what you say here. Money is valued highly by a lot of people. You hit the nail right on the head about the medicine costs. If you don't have the money then you lose out on important care and medicine. I wish there was a better solution. There are agencies out there in America and they can be found. But in the long run money talks.

In an extra comment to my previous response I was referring to the agencies who help the destitute or needy in regards to medical assistance and the like. Thank you.
