    Re: Is money evil?

There’s money and then there’s money.  Which money are you talking about?  One kind of money, the kind we use, is bank credit and receipts for bank credit that our central bank can issue at its pleasure.  As it exists, it is a mechanism for charging rents on the use of money.  It is a tax on all value which, by the way, comes from your labor and nowhere else.  Money made on speculation or by charging rents on money are not earned, but are in reality a swindle.  As we’ve seen, when the swindle fails, the swindler makes out and everybody else suffers.  That’s what happens when what was our government belongs to the bankers.  And yes, of course, the government mint prints notes.  Ever take a close look at what’s printed on them?  I call your attention to two phrases.  “Federal Reserve Note” and “This note is legal tender for all debts public and private.”  No surprise on the first one.  The Fed is the ultimate source of our currency.  The second one is telling in that it appears on a note issued on behalf of a private consortium of banks.  The government will accept it for the paying of taxes and the courts will consider private debts discharged if this note is offered in payment.  Can you imagine any other private concern with that kind of power?  What if the government passed a law saying that if you don’t wear Levi’s jeans you’re considered nude in public and are subject to arrest?  No other brand or garment will do.  Not a bad deal for Levi Strauss.  So, I ask you, is a rigged game evil?

Now consider the money issued by Abraham Lincoln.  It’s a note issued by the US Treasury.  The government prints it and spends it into the economy to keep the stock of money sufficient for trade and consumption.  As Lincoln himself said in so many words, it’s the governments greatest creative power.  So, let’s say the government prints up some money to build a bridge.  It buys steel, concrete, labor, etc.  That money is now free to circulate without paying rent on it to anyone ever.  A bridge fosters trade by increasing efficiency.  It adds value to the economy without an interest penalty.  Ask yourself what fraction of your tax dollars pay the interest on our current stock of money.  What value does that add to the economy of your household?  Now I ask you is a game where everybody who contributes something of value gets value in return evil?

    Money is not evil but the people

I have this philosophy that money is not evil. But the people who are completely in need of power to control others and/or in desire of getting something what they don't deserve only then they take money as everything for them and then is the start of crime, frauds, frodgery etc. I loved this article.

Thanks for sharing it with all of us.

    Money isnt evil

Money isn't evil. Try David Lichtenstein (http://www.crunchbase.com/person/david-lichtenstein) for example. He has a lot of them, but he used them for donations when Hurricane Sandy struck back in the days. Money simply is a tool, but the person can be either good or evil
