Obsessed with Money

Why is everyone in this world so obsessed with money ? is it really that important... like my previous post .. just imagine you were an outsider in this world and how crazy everyone is about money.

People even go as far to sell their bodies and souls just for some plastic and numbers on a screen ... in reality we are the only people that put value on money.

If you look at the general life progression of the average person, if looking at the situation from outside the square .. lets look at the progression

We are born and then we get into school and waste away hours and hours into studying to get into a good university and a good course

After school we will probably get into the college or university and course we want to get into, from there we waste away tens of thousands of dollars and also put countless amounts of time and effort into completing a course.

After this we will apply for internships and graduate jobs, from there we will start working as a junior on work our way to senior or management positions.

From there we will work from 8am - 9am until 5pm - 6pm usually and for higher end jobs such as law or medicine we will work even longer hours. Can everyone see how crazy this idea is and how everyone is just putting themselves in a prison and willingly doing so ? .. We do all of this until are basically dead (minus the couple of years of retirement - that's if we are lucky enough and cancer or a life threatening disease doesn't get us first)

The whole idea of money is pretty absurd if you think about it, right ? .. everyday you go out and use your money.. you are just putting more value on something that in reality has no value and would not mean anything if you were stuck on a deserted island or if you have been diagnosed with an irreversible sickness... As abstract the thought is, just imagine the world without money.
