“In Truth, the purpose of Money was an idea intended for rendering Service to others”
The most powerful form of persuasion ever to infiltrate human conditions, is not an act of nature, not a single individual or group, but an imaginary concept created out of nothing, and one that has absolutely no value toward sustaining life. Money is nothing more than an illusionary symbol that robs humanity of its dignity, and separates us from having a united camaraderie that would enhance our true potential. Probably the greatest Myth ever to be imposed on humanity, is the belief that we need some form of Monetary System to govern our race.
There have been volumes written in scripture and philosophy on the subject of Money. There is also a diverse perception of what these writings all mean. Depending on how one looks at it, money should never be justified as a good or bad thing, but our society revolves around its importance, and demands that we acquire it... This basic fact is accepted as the way things are, and rarely, if ever, questioned. Money has always been the only legal tender that we mortal souls have known, so it is certainly not a new or easy subject to debate.
Bartering is not synonymous with an inordinate love of money...money simply describes a method of the exchange of goods and services. So I am not here to condemn the use or possession of money, rather to suggest to you the realistic circumstances that have evolved, and to confront the idealistic nature that has accompanied its use. Money is not a problem when you have enough, but what about when you don’t have enough?
The truth of the matter is we are evolving toward a more civilized culture. We are recognizing the importance of human dignity on a grander scale like never before, yet we are restricted by a Monetary System that continues to fail us. A Capitalistic perception has slowly and insidiously replaced our natural instincts to nurture the basic needs and desires that should be considered crucial for human development, and now manipulates our individual lives. Our progress, and even the Earth’s natural resources that we rely on for survival, have been placed in jeopardy. We claim to live in the most modern age that has ever evolved, and yet fail to see that the method of trade we use has created countless restrictions toward our personal and collective growth. I am optimistic that we can evolve toward a more humane approach to our problems, but I am also concerned about how long it will require for a conscious change, that I believe must take place to occur.
Everything on this planet relies on the harmony of its own species for survival, and the human being is no exception. We have the capability to create whatever beauty or disaster we choose. We have more influence upon the world than anything alive, and yet we take very little responsibility from our prevailing throne. We have been given the gift of intelligence to enhance our world, but have been subdued through an illusion by which a currency with no soul can wreak havoc upon a society that remains victimized by greed and ego. Unlike other living things, separation based upon financial status is currently the accepted norm.
I have written this book to evaluate what few people have had the courage to proclaim: “Our reliance on Money has outweighed its usefulness.” Things don’t always appear to be the way they truly are, and it is time we take into account that the global monetary economy has been, and is, failing Humanity. I plan to present evidence of this underlying, and disguised economic downfall within these pages, and recite reasons why it is time to find a better way to do our business of life. I alone am not capable of providing any specific alternatives to our current monetary system, but there is an exciting new alternative spreading across the globe at a rapid pace this moment. It is capable of taking the power out of the hands of the current banking system, and returning relative fairness to common man. I am convinced we can collectively share new ideas, and together we can implement a solution that will benefit all.
