"In which time Moses was born" - No More Money-Based Economy

Around Tokyo

No More Money-Based Economy

Everybody is afraid all over the world of being poor.

If you have money, you can first of all get means to protect yourself and your family.  But without money, your safety is in the hand of other men who have money.  And to earn money you have to be employed by a rich man who might be very evil.  You might be even requested to commit a crime for your salary.  Being poor is a state of risk.

Of course, if you have money, you can satisfy your need and dream in addition to desires after securing your safety, a minimum requirement.  And, with money you can buy various products and services to improve material and psychological quality of your life.  What's more, you can harm the poor acting as an evil man.

Today money is created through banking systems of each nation or international organization.  Value of money is backed up by economic power of nations.  People are working in society producing goods and providing services, which is a basis of value of money.  Without real economic activities of people, money can have no value.

If all the people in the world have big money, they all try to live without working but based on power of money to buy goods and services from others or businesses.  But if no one works for money any more, there will be no goods and services.  Then money will lose its value.

Accordingly, the rich need the poor.  Rich countries need poor countries.  To secure value of money they have accumulated, the rich need laborers who work to produce goods and provide services.  Therefore we may regard money as the major source of evil.

The only solution to address this sinful effect of money is to change the meaning of economy or production of goods and provision of services.

People should not work to give value to money.  People should be engaged in production of goods and provision of services for mutual support for living.  Economic activities should not be linked with value of money but directly to welfare and well-being of people.

In this context, commercialism is the worst factor in human economy.  Commercialism arouses desires in human minds.  To satisfy desires people think they have to get money and big money.  But this flame of desires cannot be quenched any amount of money.  People just endlessly seek and stick to money.

Human matters must not be fixed with money.  Love and faith must solve every human problem.  The last revolution mankind should experience should be this shift from money-based economy to love/faith-based economy.

But what percentage of mankind should come to hate money for this revolution?
