"Money is so corrupting that even the simple act of thinking about it can lead people to act in unethical ways, according to a recent study from the University of Utah and Harvard University.
Researchers split up roughly 300 participating undergraduate students into two groups. The first group was asked to perform activities that were associated with money-related words and images, and the second group participated in activities that were unrelated to money altogether.
Afterward, the participants were asked to make a series of illicit business decisions: to act dishonestly but earn more money, for example, or to hire a candidate who would share confidential information. The students who first participated in the money-related activities were more likely to engage in unethical behavior, the researchers found.
“These findings suggest that money is a more insidious corrupting factor than previously appreciated, as mere, subtle exposure to money can be a corrupting inﬂuence,” they wrote."
My personal thoughts:Does money make this world a better place or corrupting it so it never becomes an amazing place?
First time i took notice of the evil nature of economy and money was back at school in a history class where the teacher was praising an american president for destroying tons of food and saving the economy.
I was like there are countries that starve to death and instead of giving the food to them they destroyed it?
Then i realized the money system and economy the dumb masses praise and live proudly with is a slavery in disguise system!
There's enough to go around for everybody but then no one would have to work like a slave!
And by the way in greek work is douleia which means slavery!
What's funny when i tell that to greeks they take a while to notice it, and there was a greek teacher that was arguing with me it's not the same as in greek work and slavery might be the same word but they are pronounced differently so for that it's not the same.
Eventually she agreed to the obvious and this goes to show the mass hypnotism the masses are under where even when their masters spell it to their face work/money/economy=slavery
they wont notice or care to do something about it.
