Why You Work For Money?
Because in a specialized Industrial System like America, as opposed to an agricultural system where you essentially produce everything for yourself....you need money to survive to obtain food, water, and fuel(unless you have someone to give you those things or you are able to force/steal them from someone else).
If you can't exchange money for food, water and fuel.....you can't survive and their is no reason to work.
Think of Money like a modern day Bill of Exhange........which were simply claims on ships against goods being brought over. Anyone holding the Bill could claim those goods when they landed, so the Bill themselves was just like having the goods and they could be traded between people.
As our economy moved more towards services and IP......we started backing money by intangible production....BUT PRUDUCTION NONETHELESS....until we weren't producing enough services and IP and then we simply started printing money.
In a dangerous world....security is production....and the more dangerous the world, the more valuble the security. People will be willing to trade almost anything for security when they think their life is in danger.
Think about that and think about what is backing the U.S. Dollar..........
And if it is security backing the dollar.....and we are printing dollars based on that security.....which Americans are really entitled to those dollars.....bankers or soldiers?
Now do you see why we pay "independent" contract soldiers 5-10X more than American soldiers?
It is not the end of the world, simply the end of a world as we know it.
