so i was checking out the music portion of the thrasher site (a skate magazine for those who dont know), and i started reading about this band Danava. (http://www.thrashermagazine.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=594&Itemid=41)
one of the members of the group stated "I think Satan is a dollar bill".
This quote really got me thinking. I know the discussions been had 545630560 times before, because of that one saying, "Money is the root of all evil". But i thought i would start a thread about this anyways.
So Pit, what are your thoughts on this?

Money is a dickhead, but an economy is necessary to support this system.

Shut up


But I totally agree.

Money, although necessary for everyday living and economy unless you want to start making everything yourself, is quite the inescapable evil.

If we removed money of the world, we would all be looters and steal what we cant make/grow.

Its kind of like a check-mate, really.

Money makes us evil, but then again, without it, we would be looters.

Satan is in us and makes us want the money more than anything else. It's the reason the big bail out companies did bad business. More money. Get greedy, and you get screwed simple as that. MONEY IT'S A GAS

I agree with what's been said here.
Money, as evil as it is, is what makes the world revolve, essentially.

Looting what? The stuff we bought with no money?


EDIT: But yes, I understand what you're saying, money is necessary.

No, without an economy, we would all have to resort to producing our own products.

And those things, we would soon resort to stealing from each other, since that is a hard thing to do.
#17
To remove money would necessitate either a backwards movement to the point where everyone is a producer of goods and all trade was in the form of goods, i.e. completely obliterate the service sector, financial sector and technology sector

Orrrrrrrrrrrr

Communist state.

Everyone says money is evil, but without it they'd suffer in society so there's no choice in the matter except to bend over and take it by the banks.

Well I think that's a bit of a leap from A to Z, if no one is producing there'd be nothing to steal.

Everyone would have to produce something and barter with their excess produce for things they can't produce themselves.

Theft in this kind of situation usually involves harsh corporal and capital punishments to disuade it from becoming rampant. Only a tiny portion of people are willing to risk the loss of their hands or feet or being strung up on the gallows for the meagre living one makes of theft in a cashless society.

For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.
