Voltaire – MONEY

He warned you and me,

Don’t think money does everything or you are going to end-up doing everything [and anything] for money. 

Money makes the world go ‘round, and the most powerful of all money is the U.S. dollar, the reserve currency of the world.  What can we do without it? It is the difference between living and dying if not life and death.  

For money, men do anything.  Once and as this “anything” becomes institutionalized so too does greed and graft reach fever pitch.  

Be ye warned, so Voltaire: 

Paper money eventually returns to its intrinsic value—ZERO!


When it is a question of money, everybody is of the same religion. 

Our society has a history of (or about) socialism; that this form of government is taboo, destined to a certain calamity inherently infeasible and decidedly doomed to failure. 
Maybe it, socialism, is…and all the other taboo “’isms”; with the likely or possible exceptions of:

  • Materialism-consumerism
  • Capitalism-fascism
  • Paganism-secularism

Not all ‘isms are apparently alike.
