Money is the root of all evil

   Love of money causes tremendous damage and destruction not only at home level but in all over the world. No doubt money is needed to fulfill our basic needs of life but extra ordinary love of money is really the cause of all evils.When our necessary needs leads to luxurious we are getting involved to gather it more and more.Lust of money affects the human relations badly. Person, having desire for money, try to accumulate it at any cost and means. Love of money becomes the cause of antagonism between father and son, between brother and brother and between friend and friend. All moral values are ignored and set aside where money is involved. The love of money poisons friendship and relationship of all kinds.The evilness of money has caused some of us to steal, rob and cheat to obtain it. The worse part of it, is it has caused some us to kidnap and murder one another to obtain it. Some of us don't care how we get it as long as; we have it in our possession. Fascists and capitalists get along fine together. As cancer is to the body, so, if not regulated, capitalism becomes naked greed, which is to the society EXACTLY what cancer is to the body: Having forgotten the necessarily interdependent nature of the body, the cancer cells merely eat and grow and replicate as fast as they can, grabbing all the “wealth” — which is to say oxygenated red blood cells and sugar in the bloodstream — as the other organs weaken and die, and, finally, the organism itself dies.Most of our parents didn't live this way and did just fine. A calm sense of contentment reigned. I know it sounds cliche, but life, not that long ago, was a lot simpler.And I'm not talking about 40 or 50 years ago. It was the 1970s and early 1980s. Although I was just a kid and a young teenager, I never felt the pressures of wanting to have so much stuff like I see today. Money is no different than a gun. In the hands of a good man, it's a tool to improve his world. In the hands of a bad man, it can be a negative thing.It was people (American bankers and financiers) during WWII that financed Adolf Hitler which resulted in the deaths of many people, including hundreds of thousands of Jews. In this case, money was used to do evil. Then you have people like Oprah Winfrey and Bill Gates who donate millions of dollars to help people out by donating to educational causes and feeding the poor. In this case, money was used to do good.Set noble goals, then make the money to reach them! Work a few hours a week. Create things that you are interested in and that others want or find useful and the money will come to you anyway, don't worry about chasing the money, but educate yourself into what to do with the money when it comes so it works for you...Take care to guard against all greed; because your true life is not made up of the things you own, no matter how rich you may be.Moral of the story: Regardless how much money you may make in the course of your life, you need to stay true to yourself, never alienate the people that stuck with you thru strife and will continue to stand by you into your triumphs and successes. Money can’t buy happiness, although the material goods that you buy may make you happy for short periods of time, love and respect last longer and stay stronger than your bank account and wallet can even hold.                                                                                                                                            

   We want more because we aspire for a better quality of life, and we do not want to worry about not having.But the real issue here is, will we stop desiring for more money if we have already fill our treasure chest to the brim and are already living the lifestyle we want?When I wake-up in the morning, I think of work. I work not to survive, but to make money, more money. In that sense, I am motivated by a desire to have more, by greed. While money tends to become the prime mover for almost everything we do today, it is nevertheless should not be regarded as god as some of us would.Although money is but the token representation that we use in buying and selling, it is a necessity. Obviously, it is our means for fending our needs, getting what we want. But, again, when we value money more than our family, friends, dignity, and spirituality we become enslaved by it. Instead of letting it serves us for our purpose, money becomes our god. This is evil, per se.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          .....Nowadays, banks and lenders lend money to financially broke or impecunious people so as to trap them into incurring debt and thus owing more money. Banks take the debt incurred by the poor borrowers and use it to pay the rich people who allow their money to incur interest, thus we have a situation of the poor becoming poorer, and the rich becoming richer; and yes, it is the poor who are making the rich richer when you understand the dynamics at play here.Greed might be one of the biggest flaws of the human race. We are never satisfied.We always want more.  People kill for money because people have an insatiable lust for it.

photo  I submit that money is not the root of all evil, it is the love of money that will cause that evil. Watch this incredible video which defines not the root of evil, but the root of money. Enjoy, and Live the Dream! .  ...The true face of capitalism .....Capitalism has never come close to solving the problem of hunger. Instead global capitalism has generated a situation where hunger is mostly eliminated for a minority of very wealthy countries, and massive hunger exists for the vast majority of poor countries. One billion people go hungry every day under global capitalism, almost all live in the Third World......
