why is gold valuable? and do you think it would be possible to do away with the money system?
I feel like gold has no real value. I know that nothing technically has value, but why did the whole world choose to give gold so much value? Its really used for nothing. When is the last time you have ever heard someone say they needed gold? never, cause it is useless. Do you think, back in the day, people first started giving it value because it was shining? I know that sounds dumb, but i think its a possibility.
Also, do you think we could do away with the money system? like go back to trading or something like that? I know that it is theoretically possible, but i guess im asking how probable you think it is. I really dislike money (and gold i guess). I wish i could live my life without money, in my experiences money has done more bad than good. But no matter how much i dislike money, i am forced to give it value. I find it kind of upsetting, i don't want to give value to money, i really don't. But because just about every person on this earth continues to see money as value, i also have too. I feel changing a system like this will never happen, but do you think it could? and do you think it should?
