The discipline of collective intelligence demonstrates that poverty, pollution, social inequalities, mass extinction of life exist as the consequences of using a scarce monetary system called money. Selfishness, cupidity, the drive for conquest and domination certainly represent traits of human psyche, but in most cases scarce money stirs them up. It then activates predatory ideologies such as neo-liberalism and other forms of fascism.
I can hardly see how States, large organizations and society in general, will evolve towards a sustainable and virtuous future while using today’s monetary system.
Last but not least, the money we use everyday today doesn’t come from the governments, but from the banks, therefore from private institutions for the most part.
So, because I don’t think money can ever solve today’s problem, I will always feel reluctant to use it and will use as many other options as possible.
