: With everybody chasing the ellusive dollar nobody considers that there IS something else in life like living.

Are people not alive when engaged in the above then?

: Money controls people and governments.

Its an intelligent purposeful entity? Remember the saying 'gun never kill anyone, people get killed by people' - try applying a similar logic to the above.

: Money corrupts us humans by nature are greedy yet doesn't anyone see that our problems as a society won't change while we are still trying to line our pockets ??

So if in nature pre historic man was trying to line his cave with meats, fruits and furs was he also being corrupted?

I think we know what state the uncorrupted man would be in then - dead.

: How can anyone claim to have lived a full and rewarding life when they're stuck in an office for 40 to 60 hours a week for 40 or 50 years just so they can pay the bills and save a few bucks. Is this what living is all about ?? Grab as much cash as you can by any means necessary and then die ?? You can't take it with you my friends....

What are you suggesting to remedy this supposedly terrible existence?
