Hello all ponderers,
the topic of 'Money' has come up a number of times in some of our recent discussions already and a couple of quotes I heard (see below) might be a good starting point for a debate about the sensitive issue of money. We all need some, we all have or lack some, we despise it or love it, it makes or lives comfortable or the lack of it ascetic.....
What's the difference between wealth and poverty ?Is money just a rational medium of exchange or does it (or the lack of it) fill us with envy, greed, desires ? How is money connected with power ? Does it corrupt ? etc.etc.
I'm sure you can come up with more questions and aspects of the influence of money on our self and our community.
Here are the quotes I mentioned above: "Money is the barometer of a society's virtue" Ayn Rand, philosopher and writer - and: "The wealthiest societies are the most virtuous" Alan Knight, theatre director - what do you think ? Debatable, no ?
See you soon
