Thread Name: BS: Why do we need money?
Subject: RE: BS: Why do we need money?
I have tried the no money part for 30 years I have tried the money part for 26 years. It is much nicer to have than to not. I can help a hell of a lot more people, institutions, touch more lives take care of my needs as opposed to when I did not have the stuff.

I have a staff of people who work for me who appreciate it and me very much. I can see the evils of the worst of capitalism but I can also see the wonderful parts of societies that are based on capitalism and how vastly superior to the ones where other government and economic systems were in force in the eastern bloc 15 years ago. You may be able to make some cases on theory only but reality makes money seem to be a pretty good idea.
