Money is at the root of almost all of our problems. It causes war, crime, hunger, greed corruption... etc... etc...the list goes on. Money was an excellent tool to get us up to this point in human civilization, but since we now have established technology, its time to put it to use for US and enjoy life like it was meant to be lived.
Technology should be a tool that is used to make our lives easier, but it seems like all its doing is causing our extinction. It needs to be used for the good of mankind and not always for profit.
Have you ever thought you could ever live a life, not worrying where you are going to get money to pay your bills? Or find money to go to school? Or find money to eat?
Money will be the demise of our society. But taking money out of our society wont be an easy task. We depend on it so much, people freak out when an idea like this is mentioned.
This is how the world MUST be, not only to protect our earth, but our species. We are an endangered species, but you dont really hear anyone talking about that these days.
This is not a new idea and the people in power will try their hardest to never make this a reality.
I've been thinking about money and the problems with it for years now. I just didnt have a solution to bring it to a new level. I admit, money is important in our society. We are so dependent on everything, without it we would end up on the streets (well, to a curtain extent and for many living in cities).
I'm very lucky to have found this website: http://www.thevenusproject.com/.
The Venus Project presents a bold, new direction for humanity that entails nothing less than the total redesign of our culture. There are many people today who are concerned with the serious problems that face our modern society: unemployment, violent crime, replacement of humans by technology, over-population and a decline in the Earth's ecosystems.
As you will see, The Venus Project is dedicated to confronting all of these problems by actively engaging in the research, development, and application of workable solutions. Through the use of innovative approaches to social awareness, educational incentives, and the consistent application of the best that science and technology can offer directly to the social system, The Venus Project offers a comprehensive plan for social reclamation in which human beings, technology, and nature will be able to coexist in a long-term, sustainable state of dynamic equilibrium.
The Venus Project envisions everything I have been thinking about for so long, and surprisingly have pretty good solutions for change.

For some strange reason, these videos always get deleted, so if the links are broke, a simple search should bring up new postings.
Please check it out. Dont hate if you have a different opinion, its ok. We have been raised on believing money is power, and it is not, its ink and paper. We've been lied to by so many, for so long, people either dont care or dont believe.
There is quite a lot of information on this website, so it could take some time to digest.
Open your mind and your hearts so we can use technology to move the human race in the right direction.
