Default Re: Is money truley the root of all Evil?

As money has been a way of preventing things from being taken away, on the other hand it has caused some problems. When a company gets greedy, they manage to become so big and when they have enourmous ammounts of money... they cannot be stopped, nor can they be taken down. And then it comes to controling the politicians to doing stuff for them so that they can give the money to them. And those deals... end up becoming accepted. It's almost like as if it's a way of controling the whole country. They can also order to take down other companies and buy them out by force. Companies cannot be able to refuse being bought out, once they're bought out... they have to get used to it, which is really sad. If only if companies had the right to say no to being bought out, then things would be much better.

If a company is being bought out, chances are they would not be able to compete very long in the first place.

Money, being just pieces of paper, doesn't have some mystical property that can alter the mindset of people when one touch it. Also, if money is indeed the root of all evil, that would mean that the majority of people in the world is evil because they have money. I believe that due to the greed and selfishness of the possessor, they will become evil if they forgot the human qualities.

Also, I heard that this saying is the poor people's conception on rich people.

Thanks for reading.
