    What is the use of money?

    ' Money serves its purpose only when it is used for those who need it', said Chen, a vegetable vendor in Taiwan, who out of her modest living had managed to donate $320,000 to poor. Should we follow her example or better to keep our money for ourselves?

    Money serves many different purposes and too many to list here, and I'm sorry, but not really in the mood to put this into a hub. So, simply put- money is the power that makes society and government operate. Without it, one would surely not like their living conditions nor would they be able to have any form of "quality" to their life.

    Sure, they would be able to live on the streets, but to let them do so, for whatever reasons, is cold-hearted and cruel. I am very glad that this Taiwan person decided to give money to the poor. It's a great gesture and more people should think about what they are doing, before they commit that kind of money. However, it would also depend on how the money was eventually used. If you just gave it to them, so they could go and buy things, then you are just enabling their position and agreeing that is alright to be poor.

    This breeds the wrong ideology about life to those who apparently do not really understand it. It isn't better to keep the money yourself, but to use the money in a manner that is more beneficial and helpful to get them OUT of their position and moving forward in life would be better.

    Money is a false god, a manufactured religion based on faith in an intangible entity that guides our daily choices and dominates our value system, a cold uncaring thing unworthy of my fealty, a horrible device that can reward vice and punish virtue, a system whereby a person can only have a hamburger not because they want it or deserve it or even need it, but because they have enough money to buy a hamburger. Someone with no money can have nothing; we are all born penniless and this is unfair to the most innocent and deserving people of all, those who never asked to be brought into this cruel world: newborn babies.

    I think we need to keep as much money for ourselves for the present and future and donate anything else we can. As long as we can live comfortably with a minimum, there is nothing wrong with donating the rest.
