No Currency

Imagine a world with no currency, where everyone does work for the better of their community as a whole. This causes no war, no jealousy, and no conflict. This world, however, cannot exist, because our human race is intrinsically selfish. We have to have more than the person next to us. If we don't, we cannot be happy in that situation.

I'm not trying to say you need to have everything to be happy, but there is a part of all of us that wants to have more than our neighbors.

  1. Everybody already works for the better of the whole. They do it by trying to sell whatever they can to as many parts of the whole as they can and likely, solely for their own benefit! Good stuff sells and bad stuff, well, bad stuff sells as well, but not as much. Selfishness rocks! We come from a long line of selfish people. Of course they also gave freely.Where love or family are concerned at least. Money doesnt cause selfishness, biology does. The same is true for war and a host of other ugly things. Evolution operates on cultures as well as organisms. By duking it out we burn off humans but we advance cultures. Mother nature is a bitch!

  2. Maybe, "D", it's just you.
    The rest of us don't need communism because we understand what's "fair". It's not that we're "selfish", just that we're more successful and driven than you are.
