It is not an hour to ask these kinds of questions! : Lol:

Money is a more flexible means than barter to promote the exchange of goods and services.
What implicitly reveals the fact of not trusting the other, not trusting in life, in short of being afraid of not having in return, when the time comes.
A guarantee is necessary during an exchange: money.

From the fear of missing out, greed and all the drifts that we know are born:
-The loan of money is considered a service and must also be remunerated.
This means that those who lend against interest have more and more.
If he doesn't make a mistake, he gets exponentially richer.

- Monetary creation, via the ex nihilo loan, also against interest, means that whoever is authorized to do so (bank), gets paid for this service, and therefore gets richer more and more.
As a result, those who borrow must work to repay loans and interest.

-This practice of "against interest", involves growth or death.
growth = debtor's job to repay loan and interests.
death = if loan need stops completely, the loans are repaid and there is no more money in the world to exchange, which is death.

To say that these practices around money are modern slavery is a step that I have taken.

Silver is a noble metal (which hardly oxidizes). Less than gold, the noblest of metals (which does not oxidize) .... : Mrgreen:

There are several levels of possible response. At the level of society, money presents itself as the anonymous agent of social domination. However, although accurate, this definition only partially covers the scope of its function.
