Money Money Money! Give me more!
A phrase which I don’t really approve off! A long running debate in my head which am going to document now in this post – still in search for answers.
Do we need money? I ask this to myself very often!
Look at a tree, its probably a hundred years old, it have been giving life to every one around it. It would have produced tonnes of oxygen, protected, provided shelter to birds, humans, insects and animals – It never demanded money.
Look at the mountains, look at the snow, look at the water that they supply in abundance, look at the animals, humans, plants who depend on them for survival and yet they never demanded money.
Everything we receive, everything we produce, everything we consume have been modified and recreated from what is available in this universe.
This being the case, I see Money is used to increase the inequality.
The whole equation where Money fits in seems so vicious.
The phrase “Survival of fittest” used in corporate and government agendas are so misleading, Does that mean one with money/resources is best suited to survive and others without money/resources should die? shouldn’t it be “Co existence or No existence” ? where the whole of humanity in unity with nature works for each other and moves forward to a sustainable, happy world.
We expect Incentives to work, we are motivated by Money, pay hikes, Promotions, More money, moreee money, more moneeeey and even more money, but what does it have to do with life on earth ?
One more thought that pops up in my head is that of artists, take for example a musician. A child is born, shaped up by various things around him/her, Influenced by life situations, goes through various emotions, creates music, which he/she shares with every one. But now we have a corporate copyrighting this creation and paying the musician with “Money” , A accumulation of thoughts and emotions entirely shaped up by various natural instances in the form of music is bought by a corporate through “Money”. Given the fact that the musician dies after 60 odd years, the corporation carries on copyrighting Music from other music artists. The money paid by the corporation to the musician would have vanished in thin air by now but the music content created by the musician and copyrighted by the corporate is still there and it belongs to the corporate, any decision on who should and could listen to it now lies solely with the corporate. Apply this in every field.
Who created this money? The piece of shit that buys everything!
From Mountains to the river and the fishes
From Tress to the leaves and the air
From Humans to the Knowledge and the creations!
How can “Money” created from various elements in earth be more powerful than earth and its resources combined?
Why is physical labor not given much of an importance compared to an mental labor?
I agree physical labor are in abundance and anything in abundance loses its value, but who restricted them from gaining knowledge? “Money”
While physical laborers are paid too less to even take care of themselves leave alone the question of gaining knowledge that needs money to buy copyrighted research materials- Book. Make books, literature, Research materials available to everyone, let interested learn for free of cost.
Let everyone start from the same place!
Let everyone run the same race!
No one higher and no one lower to any other.
