Do you believe that money is not important to us? For me, money still matters to us humans. Without it we are nothing. Based from my observation, we can't survive if we don't have any of it. How can we be able to get our basic needs like food, shelter, clothing etc still money is involved right? Please do share your point of view.

Of course you have a point there, money is important as that is what we use to survive and to let our family survive. But in some situations it became less important.

No hypocrite, money is very important to me. If I have a lot of money, I could escape from all that binds me now. I became worse, because I do not have the money, so I strongly believe, money is very important to us. But, I do not idolize money, I still believe in the existence of God. God will help us in difficulty.

hello, As times goes by the money it is really needed by us because we need it for the basic needs like what you have said. right? And besides without money we cannot do what we wanted everything seem to this world is surrounding in money. Every thing has a cost there is no free at all. So, we need it most it is a part of our life now.

Money is important unless you live in some isolated tribe somewhere and live off the land. I think the best I heard about money is it gives you freedom. You can do things you want without being so restricted.

We all need money from time to time but think about back in the day in the other centuries where cave men and cave women had to survive without it, if something ever happens to us I am sure we all have basic instincts on how to survive in this world without money yes it is needed but think about what if we came to one day where there was no more money around and it did not exist? Could you survive? There are so many movies where people were stranded without anything like for instance "Cast Away" I think we all learn from those kind of movies and if you watch some channels that are about survival you can learn from those programs too and from what we learned in school as well. I think it would be hard to survive without any kind of money at all but basic instincts we all have and I think I could survive from what I have learned in the past years. This is my point of view and I hope it helps.

It is quite important to me but not in obsessive kind of way. Let's face it without it we can't pay for things like basic necessities. It would be nice to have loads extra but not at the expense of sanity.
