I'm growing tired of the on going issues in this world. I seriously want to cry. That's not a joke. It truly saddens me how mean we can be to one another. All this violence...when will it ever stop? What if the entire world just stopped for one second to look at what we have become. A bunch of greedy violent selfish monsters. You know what the root to all this evil is, its MONEY and POWER. Which can honestly be easily fixed if you take a second and realize that we are the ones that give money value. Without it, it would be useless. And the real bad guys would be royally screwed and no longer in power.

You want to know what else saddens me all the homeless people and children and families in poverty. That shouldn't even be possible. Why do we have so many overpaid celebrities with ZERO talent. Even if they were talented they shouldn't be making that much. Our leaders are definitely overpaid. They can't run a country for shit. I could do a better job for free. So much ridiculous spending in warfare, and all this money that goes to these awful corporate companies. GRRRR when will we wake up and rise to this evil.

Oh, and let's not forget about our world. EARTH! I love her so much. I love everything about her! We are killing our mother. I cry children, STOP, just STOP before it's too late.

Is your solution to the worlds trouble to devalue money completely, thinking if we do not have money that will cure all the evils of the world? No matter how hard you try, material things will all have value, and replace a monetary system. I think it is called wanting what someone else has and being willing to do anything for it. Normal people work for it, but criminals just take it, or cheat you out of it. Power is a big spectrum, it ranges from countries like Russia wanting power to people in everyday life, wanting some sort of power over something. Maybe its your boss, maybe its your teachers, or even preschoolers not sharing toys. How you use that power is the issue.

Capitalism means you and I can engage in free enterprise, they call that the American dream. Sure it irks me that the Kardasians are worthless and make millions, and I did welding in my profession only a hand full of people in the world can do, and had to live paycheck to paycheck. It irks me that Los Angeles is proposing minimum wage will go from $9.25 to $13.50 which is about a 45% raise over 3 years, when I never saw a new contract over 4% per year, and we were the most highly skilled labor trades building the Space Shuttle. Any idiot can learn to work at McDonald's in 3 days, they are totally unskilled labor and do not deserve $9.25 hour any more than the millions Kim Kardasian makes. I agree so many celebrities are stupid and overpaid, but we have millions of totally unskilled workers in this country who are definitely overpaid. The Kardasian's are just one example of thousands of overpaid celebrities that are dumb as a box of rocks, but they were smart enough to market themselves into fame and fortune. Again it irks me, but that is the American way. If you want to support them by buying tickets, CD's, sports events, clothing lines, be my guest, people pay them while they complain what they make.

Homeless people are not always what they appear to be. Yes we have the truly homeless, people who lost jobs and homes, no fault of their own, and are in a hopeless situation. Those people need help. I drove into skid row in Los Angeles, and what you see is shocking, and a stark difference from the clean cloths, new tennis shoe, panhandles with cardboard signs, who are scammers. I just read about a Oklahoma City man confronting an old lady who panhandled him and he caught her driving off in a 2014 car. They should be in jail! All those on skid row are not always what it seems, many do it by choice, live in the bottom of the barrel and do not want out. We have millions who are not homeless, but they have learn to suck the welfare out of everyone else. They have section 8 housing, have a pile of kids, and just live indefinitely on welfare, and we all pay for it. Knowing how to work the system has become the American way, from student grants and loans, claiming disability, other state programs, welfare, and never intend on ever stopping, or ever paying back any loans. It is a shame, not to mention a crime that the ones truly in need are denied, while we have career scam artists that work our system of benefits, one program to the next. They are pros at it while those who just need and apply are turned away. Taking and never giving back, never intending to raise up on their own 2 feet.

Did you know, the Boston Marathon bombers, and their families, were all collecting some sort of welfare, had student grants from the country they hated, and the sister and mother all had shop lifting records. They hated us, but were all part of the welfare scams.

You love disease? You love fires, earthquakes, tornadoes, and hurricanes? You love the animals that, with a drop of venom or a swipe of a claw, can and have killed countless men, women, and children? You love the freezing cold and the scorching heat?

Regardless, Greeney is right. You want greed, corruption, and social illness to stop? Find a way to keep our basic needs infinitely met. Until then, while it's fun to post about idealistic dreams on an internet forum, it isn't telling anyone something they don't already know.

War is an extension of economics and diplomacy through other means.

Economics and diplomacy are methods of securing resources used by humans.

Securing resources is the one necessary behavior for all living things.

War = Life

Okay well if you don't agree that money needs to be abolished period, then maybe you'll agree that there needs to be a serious reform of the currency system.

Just because there are bad people that scam us doesn't mean everyone else does too and even still doesn't mean those people deserve chances. We're no one to judge.

Yes I love mother earth. It's the planet we live on. Yes there are devastating natural disasters but she also gives us life...do you forget that? Let's also some of diseases are man made and some because of unsanitary environments that can be fixed.

You still have to be realistic and live your life with the cards you were dealt. Every generation has grown up with some pretty bleak things. My parents born in 1915 and 1920 lived during poor times, the stock market crash in 1929 and the depression of the 30's, followed by WW2. I was a baby boomer and grew up in the cold war, the Cuban missile crisis, and open air testing a huge atomic bombs, and was out of high school during the Viet Nam era. My kids grew up with worries over the first Gulf war and school years where gang violence was real. Point is every generation has it fears and problems.

It is not very realistic, it is idealistic to think the world wide system of money is going to change. It is not going to happen. There is no real answer except to be honest in life, make a living, and hope you can do something good in your own way for the world. You said you are a college student, which means the monitory system you do not like, is what put the college there for you to attend. Money is the root of evil, but it also is used for education and avenues to better the world and earth you love. You are not unique I hate to tell you, because we all love the earth we walk on. Man has not done a very good job taking care it it, but that is an entire subject in itself. You can direct your education and life to the betterment of that earth, becoming an environmental engineer of sorts, specialize in a profession that reverses what humans have done to this earth.

I worked and retired from a very high tech aerospace career, and you will find 2 kinds of people in every profession. Problem finders are a dime a dozen, anyone can sit around finding the ills of the world and bellyache about it, or be the sideline guy who whines "That will never work". Problem solvers are the rare ones, they dive in with both hands and feet, tackle the hardest problems first, and make it happen. That is a choice in life to be a doer, and just watch and be cynical about the future.
