I know money has more control over are lives than it should. But why are we so dependent on are money. I mean we spend it for anything we need or want. Money is a way for us to live. If we have no money how do we live? Is there a way we can become more independent from "money"? And if there is a way how can we? I mean if you take money out of are lives we would have not much except each other. No means of buying food, shelter, or wants. Is there truly a way that we can be less dependent on it? Why doesn't everything we say or talk about seems like money has something to do with it. Maybe Money is just evil and should be banned. And do things like we use to by doing something for another and in return get a service you need. Like I'll wash your laundry and you can change my oil in my car. I mean why couldn't we go back to those ways instead of money be the All Powerful? Please tell me what you think. Are we indepent of money or are we dependents? And is there a way to free ourselves from needing money?

I certainly think it does the more money a person has, the more they feel free. They feel like they can do what ever they want, because they can get what they want. Some people are different, but to me a lot of people are like that. Their whole attitude changes when they come into money. And when they lose money, they get extremely uptight.

I couldn't agree with you more. Money does control us even if we don't want too. I quess it really depends on how far we let it control us is what counts.

For many parts of my life, I think money is indeed plays an important role on it. Right now, I'm working 9 to 5 to get my salary, afterward I do online earnings site such as myLot to get more money? Why money is important? Cause without money, people cannot live their life, cannot provide for their family, cannot buy things that they like, and in the end, cannot make themselves happy. Money shouldn't be banned, cause without it, life will be dull.

Hey, Yea I think that money controls almost everyone's lives. It is mainly because we need money in order to actually live and do our work. I don't think that many people can be 'independent' from money. Make sure you have a good day, God bless and Happy Lotting!!

Money can not look down on people's minds with the position with the weight.Money to feed and clothe themselves can buy beautiful clothes,you can eat delicious food,you can enhance a person's identity with the position to the cause of the achievements of individuals,allowing attendants who servility to you,you can live in the neighborhood you live,you can temporarily access to a beautiful woman's affection,confident,and so can you.Do the same to say that money is indeed omnipotent,money is a tiny step is also difficult to use.If I deny the importance of money,it might lead people to think I am hypocritical affectation now.I do not hate money,but I despise everything the money based on the premise brought with satisfaction,because it is temporary,rather than the long-term plan.prevent the people's indifference with the money,this thing can not be resolved,its involvement would only give people more of the numbness..Therefore,the money may be able to buy worldly things,but can not buy true love between people and conscience.
