14. Absolutely. However consider that its the largest economical export of ours

Also consider how the capitalistic/monetary system is essentially draining the planet of all its natural resources and placing them in the hands of a select few. When natural resources are owned, a kind of enslavement to those who have the resources ensues.

Its been happening for decades to other countries. Surprise. Now its beginning to happen here.

Socialism and bartering and eliminating a monetary system never looked so good.

If there are other alternatives I'm all ears.

However the monetary system has put a price tag on everything. That's not good because then everything becomes purchasable, or moreover expendable.

With everything being exploited and/or played with a value on its head, eventually loses its sacredness, its soul. We then exist as essentially a robotic population when the soul is lost. And look around.

The souls are being gobbled up by the lack of nature and the increase of pavement, parking lots and shopping malls.
