Besides being a medium of exchange it is also a store of value and a
standard for measuring value.

"money" is a belief system. It's not needed.

Money is the tool to herd the uneducated masses. The pubilc school system
is set up to keep the system well stocked. Social networks may help change

3/3 The first mints were set up N the temples of the gods, whence our word
'money' -- from the mint N the temple of Juno Moneta, Juno the admonisher,
on the Capitoline Hill N Rome. Forgery was sacrilege bc the coins embodied
the powers of the gods & only the priests could handle such powers; we get
the same feeling about counterfeiters 2day, that they R practising an
unspeakable usurpation of hallowed powers. The temples, then, were
clearinghouses for money transactions, just like banks today.

1/3 "Currency, then, seems to have had its origin in magic amulets and
magic imitations of the sun which were worn or stored because they
contained the protecting spirit powers. If gold had any 'utility,' as
Hocart says, it was a supernatural utility."

@chickenshieee I found him by accident when I googled this: "We no longer
live in a disconnected world. We have no need for currency or gold to prove
our value in this world. We always have worked for each other, not money.
There has never been such a thing as a self made man" I put that on a wall
in facebook, and was curious what google would give me if I searched it
with quotes. He was the only result. I was astounded. someone actually had
nearly the exact same ideas I do.
