37. What can we learn from this?
You're not learning much apparently, since you keep trotting out that bullshit. They don't mint Morgan silver dollars any more, but they didn't stop printing money.

Of course, you may be onto something there. Money assumes the potential for greed, greed emboldens crime. So if we stop making currency, then crime will stop because there won't be any money to steal. Yeah, that's the ticket.

Don't you get tired of talking to yourself?
