A world without money? Could it ever occur?
Now I'm aware that in the current environment if we were to say "that money is abolished", pure and utter anarchy would probably destroy the world in under a week. It would be unimaginable.
However does that mean that there could never be a slight possibiltity for a human civilisation to function without money?
I know this is idealist thinking but say that we all made a pact: everyone only takes what is necessary for them. No over consumption like fifteen year olds carrying around three different sets of mobile phones or individuals with ten different houses and cars. Say that we were all aware of each other and actually learnt to 'share'.
The next question might be then, what are we supposed to do with our lives if we aren't chasing the dollar? Well I think that is when human potential will actually start to be witnessed. Our main goal in life would be to understand more about the universe, create greater works of art, work in a positive attitude for the good of the community. Who would collect the garbage if they weren't getting paid for it? Well I know if this happened there would be such a sense of community that I would not mind getting a bunch of friends for a day and jump in the garbage truck and collect everyones trash if it was a postive action for the community. People working for people.
The idea is that we are all the same and shouldn't be set into classes because of finances. Without classes and with an enlightened understanding among everyone, humans will really be able to create something extraodinary.
