money, on its own, is not an inherently bad idea. it's a damn sight easier to trade with money than it is to trade by loading all the worldly possessions you're willing to part with into your car before going to the farmer's market, y'know?
but for fuck's sake don't fucking worship money. that's how we got into this mess in the first place.

@LexYeen Errr...that´s difficult. Actually, the worship part happens automatically, with everything. People worship their cars, or their favorite sports team. That´s just human nature. What got us into this mess is the deregulatory nature of capitalist maxims, like FIAT money creation (printing money based on trust instead of value behind it like gold) and the ability to create value from nothing (with a little thing called interest rates...)

is doing quite well. Something else is "23 Things they don´t tell you about Capitalism" found here:
