In the last post, we discussed the issues of who gets to decide what is moral and isn’t, and who decides where the money goes. While the intent may be noble (and usually begins that way), the end result is evil. I also said there was another negative element. Here’s what that is…
This whole discussion of morality centered around arguments like should Joe fly First Class or donate that money to save the rainforest (orphans, whales, tofu burgers, etc.) is based on a flawed premise. The argument is based on the premise that money is a finite resource. But money (currency) is simply a man-man mind virus. Currency is a method of barter, a convenient way to exchange value. But the “real” element of prosperity is the value that you create, which can be exchanged to begin with. That value is infinite. The more value you create for the world, the more prosperous you will become. It’s a law of the universe.
It’s not a question of flying First Class or helping the orphans in Africa. You can do both, if you choose to.
