I don't believe in the religious aspects of this, but I do have a different view on this than many probably.

I think that the way we have money set up, it really promotes greed and all of the things that go along with greed.

Think about it. If there wasn't any money to be made on drugs, do you think there would be so many people trying to get others addicted? Do you think there would be so many murders around it?

Do you think there would be corporate greed?

Would there be much to be greedy about?

Money or any similar form of exchange which can be horded and accumulated by a relative few will promote this kind of thing.

Good day.

Actually it is the love of money that is the root of evil.

Thank you.

Sorry No- It is the DESIRE of/for money that is the root of all evil.

But G.B. Shaw stated that "Lack of money is the root of all evil." But that just spirals back into desires again.

If you word it that way then love would be the "root". No, its money. It opens greed and gluttony

Good day.

This is the verse from the bible which is the base:

1 Timothy 6:10
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.

Thank you.
