nice.....

it reminds me of "why are we addicted to anything"?... work, sex, drugs, alcohol, religion.. etc....

and then i think "do we do things to take our minds off the fact the we really are not doing what we would desire to do"?

or further "do we do the mundane things so that we know we forget the fact that we are not doing that which we would think about doing"?

cool vid....

Currency was just another bad idea invented by slave based empires. Originally paying taxes involved giving your time in service of the king/pharaoh/emperor, but the empires found need of a better way to keep track of who paid taxes and how much so currency was invented.

Oops, we made a mistake.

For the record those empires eventually collapsed, but the idea of currency remained deeply ingrained in the minds of the survivors. Those who survived had never known a life without currency so they carried on the tradition.

Ever hear the phrase "Time is money?" Yeah. In ancient Egypt for instance many historians actually don't consider the populace as slaves because they didn't work for the empire all year long, they had a certain amount of time they were to work in service of the empire, the rest of the time was theirs to do as they please, assuming they didn't break any of the empires laws with that time.

As populations grew it became increasingly hard to keep track of who had paid their "taxes." Currency was invented so that none should be able to give or receive, buy or sell, without having received a mark of service from the emperor.
