I've been thinking about it alot. Think about every problems we have (wars, corruption, destruction of the environnement, destruction of human values...), money is involved in pretty much all of them. I know what you're thinking: What else then money? With the time it took to make such a complex system of market or finance that we have today, we could have come up with a brilliant exchange or barter system where you would exchange service for others. While some people are making road, others are getting something to eat. And for the ones who do nothing, well they will get nothing. Same thing for exportations or importations. This is just the basics but with a lot of time I think it would be possible to come up with a good system, without all the problems we have with money. The problem is everybody should sort of be honest, and we are a bit too many on earth for it too work. I just want to know what you guys think about it, nothing too serious...

if there wasnt money there would be another form of currency.


since our brains can tell what has value and what doesnt, everything will have a stack of value, money is just a place holder.

Money simply allows for one item to be traded for another without those partaking in the transaction wanting whatever the other guy has. Nothing wrong with it in itself.

- Guy walks into a store, picks up a loaf of bread and starts walking out.
- Owner asks what it is that he's done to deserve the bread.
- Guy says that he built the roads outside.
- Guy actually doesn't have a job at all.
- Owner has no way of proving it.

So what we need is some way for people to prove, in a manageable quantity, how much work they've done.

In my eyes money is a good system.

May not be perfect because some people will screw over others and horde it all to themselves but I can't think of a better way.

If someone proposes an alternative in this thread then I will consider it.

I said it would be possible to make such system with a lot of time.

Yeah I get what you mean, but then money still brings problems. Since money is just a place holder, we are the problem...

Any alternative would probably have the same amount of possessive issues. It's the things money gets you, not green papers people lust over.

So if you ask me, possessions are a shitty existence.

lol it has nothing to do with living in the past. You can still make planes, bridges or whatever you want, but its still an exchange system.

we will always have "money" in one way or another . its something generally accepted as a medium of exchange, a measure of value, or a means of payment. not just numbers, checks, credit cards, bills, coins, etc. kinda like trading 2 fur pelts for a goat or something.

I suggest we replace money with porn. Worst case scenario: People will print more porn which will cause inflation, but we'll have more porn.

How would you value it though?

Would softcore be considered the small amount while increasing horribleness be more valuable.

If so I'd film myself ****ing an elephant trunk before letting it spray my own semen up my butt.
