What is money?
Does money exist?
Does it possess any intrinsic value?
Why have we ordered a society on the basis of obtaining an arbitrary, valueless object that provides entree to a freedom, a liberty that should be everyone’s birthright?
Shouldn’t it be everyone’s birthright, freedom?
Why shouldn’t anyone be able to board a plane and fly to Paris, to Accra, to Amsterdam, to Abidjan – for free?
Why does it cost money to do these things?
Is there a connection between violence and money? If money did not exist, if all were free to be fed, housed and travel at their whim, if there were equality of opportunity and complete freedom to work or not, to sleep or not, to worship or not – where would we be as a world?
Would we exploit the planet’s resources if everyone could partake of them?
Would people rape and rob each other if everything was available to them for free?
I’m asking you – why do we NEED money?!
