    Why not just post your videos all in one thread? Instead of having lots and lots of threads?

    Greed is the seed of evil, money is the water that makes it grow.

    If you watch Star Trek, the concept of money is almost nil. They have credits instead. They have replicators and they have almost limitless energy so they can make whatever they want because there is no need for labor. But they still maintain those systems and they live in some kind of utopia.

    Not necessarily.
    Money itself in it's basic definition is just paper.
    It's just an inanimate object holding no conscience on it's own because it's not a living thing.

    It's what money is used for that will determine whether it's evil or not.

    In today's society where resources are important, money is not going to go away so people have to deal with that.
    No object itself is really inherently 'evil' since it's not a living thing with a conscience nor does it have any kind of 'moral' capacity.
    It's what the holder uses it towards that makes it evil or not.

    money makes it easier for us to deal with other people, so it's not the root of all evil but it certainly a branch of it. we don't need to talk much with each other, we just pay and move on...extraterrestrials were the one who gave idea of money to ancient people who were living where israel is currently. mainly it was done to speed up our own way into self-distraction, because without money there would be no capitalism and planet would be in a much better shape than it is now.

    The lack of money is the root of all evil.

    It is actually.

    I've heard this accent a number of times.
    Admittedly his is a tad bit thicker than I've normally heard but it exists.

    I don't think so, but when some people have more money than others that is not moral. What is needed is for government to establish pay regulations so that no matter what company you work for you get the same pay for the same job. It will end the inequality of pay that women suffer and that other minorities experience.

    The root of ALL evil? No.

    1.Sex/Lust can be the root of some evils.
    2.Power/Greed can be.
    3.Gluttony can be.
    4.Envy
    5.Sloth
    6.Pride
    7.Wrath

    They're called the deadly sins because they can kill the soul.

    An unequal distribution of power. From that, money is both means and effect. But money is an illusion, a constructed - and widely accepted - idea; a collective delusion, born by - and strengthened through - the acceleration of an unequal distribution of power. Money is nothing, power is freedom. Freedom is something, perhaps everything. What freedom is, in truth, we don't really know. But maybe we will.

    For now, Cash is King: the 'divine right' of centralized power.
