Money

I don’t care how much it costs. I don’t care about how much I have… or don’t have, and I could surely care less about how much the next person has. I think that great experiences are invaluable, and I believe that money is the root of evil. It creates an endless pursuit that has left too many unhappy. I believe that happiness is the most important thing, and that’s what we should all be striving for. Whatever happiness means to you, pursue it, because you only get one life. I always liked Star Trek’s stance on the monetary system. In the movie “First Contact”, Jean-Luc Picard says, “The economics of the future is somewhat different. You see, money doesn’t exist in the 24th century. The acquisition of wealth is no longer the driving force in our lives. We work to better ourselves and the rest of humanity.” I believe that this is a great concept, that could accelerate our world towards the future, if everyone signed on. I don’t have the answers on how to make the transition/ascension from our monetary system, but I think it would be a great global conversation… if its even comprehensible in the 21st century. =/
