Money

  Timothy 6:10 (in an ominous god voice) "For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows." The story of one boys amazing adventure to take over the world did contain a few gems. Though this passage states that the love of money is the root of evil, I believe it is evil. For what is love without the object but a longing, a dangling verb? Money is intended to represent something tangible, like a sheep or an apple. It has turned into a weapon that is used to leverage the pain of the many for the benefits of the few. Money is the tool that our society has given you to leverage the pain of others for your benefit. It is your mana, power, and magic that is stolen from those below you in the pyramid scheme that is accepted worldwide and enforced on those who do not accept it. The system gives it to you as a reward for your participation. For propagating and enforcing the machines will. Like rats hitting a feeder bar we all work, strive, and save. We covet. You covet.
