When I was a kid, I didn't like money at all, it just bugged me when people would talk to me about it. As an adult, I don't like to talk about it but I will do anything legally binding to get it. The conquest of obtaining money is the only thing keeping me going, really.

if you don't have any skills (barter system) you best be relying on some money.  money isn't everything, but it sure does keep the lights on, full belly, running clean water and a stable roof over the head... but to each's own I suppose.

Because it's something ingrained in society and you are going to be laughed at for not earning money and it's something you literally can't live without.

I want to be a caveman who just throws sticks at things as much as you do pal but unfortunately in this world we live in the "little" people like us got no say in what the one's in charge say are the rules, money's a part of that and we just gotta deal with it, unless you've got a better idea?

Isn't money important? You know, to pay bills, rent, and to survive 😂

I think the problem we oftentimes forget to address is that people don't have a decent enough wage, and there's a high chance you'll be overworked. Aka not get paid enough to the point you need 2-3 jobs (or more) to just get by.

So we end up working ourselves to death and resenting the higher-ups because of the money they possess.

Is that clear, Danish? ^

ideally, money is supposed to allow trades of goods and services to take place.


without the concept of money,
either everyone relied on themselves (and made everything by themselves: built their own house, made their own food, sewed their own clothes)....


....or they traded goods (without money), by bartering. but that gets problematic. because you might need a service from let's say a baker (you need bread), but you can offer nothing the baker wants. the baker wants flour, ....and all you produce is fish. so now you have to go and try to find someone who will accept your fish as payment for flour, which you can then give to the baker, just for one loaf of bread.....

this is such a hassle. you'd have to travel long distances and carry around lots of different products just to make 1 trade you want to make.



and even if the baker agrees to take your fish as payment, ....he needs some place to store it. where will he store your fish? he'd need a large fridge.


this is why people initially introduced money. as a method of trading goods.
money is easy to store (doesn't go bad, unlike fish or bread),
it's light weight (easy to carry around),
and everyone accepts it as payment.



that is how money was supposed to work. and why we can't exactly 'get rid of it'.


although it is true that a money economy brings new problems and challenges that a barter economy doesn't have.

Money's kind of needed to live, given that if you don't have money, you can't get a house/apartment, buy a car, go to the doctor, or buy food/clothing.

So, uh... no, it doesn't make you greedy. :B

Sadly money is needed, but then I would not compromise my principles to get it. I know its importance, my family went from lower class post Civil War to middle class now. I was sat down by my parents and explained that it does not grow on trees

You need money to move around, but the unhappiest person I know is a really wealthy man with alcohol and paranoia issues.

Money does not buy respect and basic human decency, too little complicates life, too much can attract unwanted attention and make you lose your touch with reality

Its importance is highly overrated, that´s true.

If you have very high social skill, you do not need it.
Similar with cultural skill or symbolic value.
Or a cute face. Or 90-60-90...

But in any case, you need people with money.

Poor people can be greedy, too. Greed is defined by a mindset, not the size of a bank account. :-)

"Money still not important to me"

probably because you hasn't tried living without money.
if you live without money you'll either survive as a criminal or as a primitive human living by nature

How will you get food without money?
Buy clothes?
Get education?
Pay for a house?


Money does not represent greediness and corruption, the people obsessed with money do.

The only reason I can see why you 'don't care about money' is because your parents still feed you. Come the day when they are gone and you have to take care of yourself then your opinion will quickly change...
