If money never existed......

If money never existed how different would the world be today? I read an article yesterday on a modern day caveman. He decided by choice one day to just give up money. Quit his job, moved into a cave. He has a blog he keeps up at the local library, in the nearest town which is like 100miles away. Why would someone do this. I think because once you realize how evil money really is you do want to just be done with it. But we have created this huge fear of living without it. Almost everything anymore revolves around it. The government is trying to own everything. It's almost against the law to just live on your own, in a cave, or in the woods. They own everything, almost no piece of land is unclaimed. And if you want to have some of it then you have to pay for it. Any how I could go on and on about this but I just wonder how other people feel about money.

I have not heard of this, very interesting. I don't know, sometimes I think the world would be better off without money, but who knows. It really does seem like everything revolves around money, and it's such a shame. People are happy or unhappy sometimes depending how much they have, people are judged, and so much else, it really is sad.

well, how he will survive without money.. as we all know that we use money to buy things... unless he will plant root crops or etc for a living like what our ancestors for million years ago did, like they just trend things to exchange for foods or vice versa. though even if he will plant crops he will still need money to buy seeds or plants and how about his other needs. what if he got sick, where will he get money to pay for doctor or hospital and etc. well, isnt he realize that world is now evolving.. cave man no more... he must accept the fact.. this is the way of life.. you struggle for a living and accept the fact even though it is evil, that we need money...

A pretty smart man I knew once said that money is just a way to keep score. I feel that way about MyLot money, for sure. It measures my activity here. I try to do less spending and more saving, because we all seem to need it.
