It’s not even real money anymore: it’s just numbers on the screen!
Like so many other human inventions before it, the Internet carried so much promise at the beginning. Then, people with money got interested…
Nothing’s wrong with making some money while doing things; everything is wrong with making it the sole purpose of your activity.
How many destroyed human lives a million bucks can buy? How many it can make whole? How about a billion?
I know why most people never get rich. They put the money ahead of the job. If you just think of the job, the money will automatically follow. This never fails.
– Hedy Lamarr
Humans are sooo irrational: we spend all of our lives trying to accumulate abstract tokens that aren’t even real, but rather represented by an abstract number on our bank account. For that, we are ready and willing to sacrifice everything: the lives of others, the lives of loved ones, our own lives. There’s but one God, and his name is Money. It’s sooo sad.
The problem is not to earn money, but to save it…
The curse of proletarians: when I have time, I have no money, and vice versa, and so on, and so forth.
You need to have money first, in order to be charitable. If you are still up to it.
Instead of concentrating on cooperation, on how to make life better for all of us, most of our efforts are towards cheating each other out of money. What a pity…
