Money is a piece of paper with a number printed on it. Well okay, the paper is very high quality paper with an intrinsic value of 4/10 of a cent. What’s a cent? Just let it go. Just let it go.
Wealth is the value of everything you own or have complete control of expressed in terms of money. This includes also the amount of money you can legally claim a right to. Wealth in a free society is also an expression of power. More money, more wieldable power. The excessive love of money is the root of all excessive evil in this world.
If you work for wages you are the livestock dotting the corporation’s (rich man’s) sprawling fields of green. Get used to it. n a free society the rich man and the poor man have a right to keep the money/wealth they work for and don’t spend on self maintenance as long as the overseeing government doesn’t really really need it.
Money becomes worth less on a regular basis, so that $4000 you tucked away to buy a house in 1940 won’t even buy the kitchen on that house you were saving it for in 2011. It’s just the way it is. With the highest debt the world has ever seen or even thought about, the United States keeper of the worlds safety reserve, is teetering on the verge of a catastrophe will make even Glenn Beck blanche.
