Ban Money.

This is how you will lower crime rates. It is our relative income that affects us the most. People don't care how much they have, they only care how much they have compared to everyone else. All of the information you need is in the World Happiness Report.

Humans will only learn the error of their ways when everything is gone and they realize that they cannot eat money.

Up is up and left is left and money is the root of all our problems. Prove me wrong. Show me how money does not limit us. In my opinion money limits everyone, but I am open to hear what you have to say about it.

What you have here is a meme. A very progressive one. What you are missing is two things primarily:

The hook: there needs to be a good reason (read: EASY) for people to adopt your meme. Giving up money is extremely difficult for most people, especially the middle class and below. Sure we could theoretically grow crops and farm for our biological needs, however... that's too hard, now isn't it. It seems easier just to stick to the grind.

The drill: again what you have is a good idea. The problem is that people's egos will not allow themselves to consider the possibility that giving up money as a society. It is too easy to keep and spend money, and people have plenty of trumpeting authorities to turn to if their faith begins to waver. It doesn't seem like a bad thing to them because they have money. Your idea should be undeniable to the rich and the poor.

So you've taken on a difficult subject. Everyone knows deep down that money is akin to bondage to a master, but if that were true, they'd be an idiot liar and hippocrite, and of course the good 'ol human ego will keep those dissonant thoughts away. Make your memes easy to see, easy to follow, and undeniable, and they won't fail you.

Pretty much terminal boredom is claiming minds and hearts.
However, it still fits with the no money theory, as
without money, we would all have to work harder and produce something worthwhile to trade.
People would not have time to get bored or think up asinine things to do for excitement, for the most part.?

Its generally true in the case of gang-related violence and such that economic desperation can contribute to violent behavior. It trends more toward violent behavior for financial gain, though. For that particular problem, I agree, the economic distress of the lowest classes is the underlying issue.

That wasn't the cause here.

Don't worry, all we need is to find the right words.

You'd be amazed at how much our language can hinder our expression. Plenty of concepts that are real issues are not considered merely because people don't know how to express the problem!
