there is nothing that I hate more than money.

I think there is nothing that I hate more than #money.
(… I hate what it makes people do and not do.)

Mammon and his slave/ Der Mammon und sein Sklave (Sascha Schneider, 1896)
Mammon and his slave/ Der Mammon und sein Sklave (Sascha Schneider, 1896)

Everything good and honest and helpful that people can do, they could do in relationships based on openness and solidarity, beyond manipulative market interests and economic considerations… (I believe that we could live and work together in a much healthier or in a much more sane and fun way, without being bribed and manipulated… without being forced to prostitute ourselves or exploit others… without having to legitimate our claims for support and inclusion to each other via rituals of price negotiation and payment…)
Our conditioning on rituals of pricing and payment distorts the integrity of our motives. This world is so sick and poisoned/ humanity is so damned corrupt, crazy and violent, because we are being conditioned to believe in money and market power.

It is disgusting.
But I believe that the #Internet has the potential to heal #humanity… in so far as we manage to prevent or supersede the influence of money.
