Not money itself. I’m not trying to imply it’s had an IQ test. But the concept while understandable is stupid. I get bartering but money in and of itself has no value. Although I’m sure the trees don’t think that. And don’t fucking get me started on crypto currency.
It seems a form of enslavement to me. I wish we could go back to a goods and services bartering system again. Because the convenience of paper money has created a horribly disproportionate system. Not that kingdoms were any better.
I was just thinking how money is so arbitrary. The value holds no basis in reality and is not backed by gold or anything tangible. It’s a system used against humanity much more than for humanity. Maybe I need to move to a rural area where money is not a standard fixture. Don’t get me wrong. I….like any human being alive love all the things money can get you….when you have it.
But the system is stupid. The world is maddening in its inequality and most of what everyone does for work is pretty useless. We are less productive than ants and from what I can see of the ants in my house, they don’t mind being killed. I think they know how insignificant and replaceable they are in the grand scheme of things and death feels welcome to them. So they can go on to bigger and better. That’s the feeling I get at least.* But I’ve been known to be wrong here and there. 😋
I have such a love/hate relationship with this existence. The suffering of one is the suffering of all. We are all holograms of meat buckets walking around thinking we mean something. Yet in the depths of our souls we are all interconnected as one. Does anyone care? Nope. Applebee’s is having a deal. Let’s go load up on crappy food. Who’s paying?🙄
*I try not to kill them actually, but I know this isn’t most people’s stance. My feeling is “who is in whose world?”.
