Life without money?

January 11, 2013 

MONI MEZA, Pasco

Ever wonder what the world would be like without money?

That would take the fun out of stealing.

Well, what about violence? People would still be violent, right? There would still be war. But who would fight and why?

And what about starving people. They will starve no matter how much access to food they have, because... Oh, OK. But there would still be separation of the social classes, with some people obviously better than others! Oh no, wait! Who will order the minimum-wage slaves around if there is no minimum wage?

How am I going to win, if I am the only one playing the game?

Who needs love, or even life, when you can have a piece of paper, instead? But the paper has a really big number on it!
