A utopian society cannot be realized within the constraints of Capitalism , warmongering Imperialist regimes, and punitive measures implemented by the city,state, and federal government to extort revenue from the citizenry. Dropping bombs on innocent civilians only creates more animosity and tension. America long ago ruined her chance at greatness by enslaving the African and committing genocide against the Indigenous. The insatiable lust for personal financial gain at the expense of human life is destroying the human race. The answer to my question is cowardice, indifference, and greed.

You are absolutely correct. Now, please examine the "why". When you explore the "why" of it all you will find you are staring at a big empty black hole. Because there is no good reason why.
The 'why' is because we're all cogs in the wheel of civilization that keeps on turning. We need money to survive, only when you have enough do you think about things such as love or you'll end up an impoverished, lovelorn poet starving in a garret.
Go farther down the rabbit hole! A man dies of liver cancer, but the greater truth may be that it was because of AIDS. The "why" here is the lie, and the system created by tyrants to enslave the masses. Destroy the system and love prevails.
If you google Dr. Guy Mcpherson, one of his quotes is ''At the edge of extinction only love remains.' He's an environmental biologist who thinks we're nearing the point where civilization collapses due to abrupt climate change and extinction follows.
That is very poetic. I wish I had said that. I will search for him. Thank you! I have only composed one quote, or axiom: "Being born is the most severe form of suicide. Not ending in a moment. But one moment ending for a lifetime".
I have a few quotes of my own. Here's one which I think is appropriate for this thread as money doesn't come into the equation:
'We all have red blood, share the same rock and breathe the same air'
I like that! "Hold the sugar and cream, just give it to me black.". I found "Human Extinction Inevitable" on YouTube. I'm watching now. Thanks! I'm not a very happy go lucky sort of guy. This will be right in step with my dystopian world view.
I agree. But the tyrants won't give up without a fight. For them, a world where they would no longer have power and control would be like a living hell.
Kind of too bad for them. Cause its going to happen. No fight neccessary, just refuse to go along w it.They may think they can kill us off and replace us with robots, but the Human spirit is stronger than that.As it says, we stand higher than angels.
We R currently living in a prison, as there are degrees of captivity.Your outlook is based on propaganda.There R enough resources on Earth 4 all to enjoy an opulent lifestyle.But the problem is that the rich would be powerless without the poor.
"Your outlook is based on propaganda" Really?
I know myself well enough to know I'm better off buying a home than living in one that (I) built. I'm grateful we live in an era where we can buy from each other those things we lack skill to make.
You outlook is based on a capitalist paradigm. From a perspective within "their" system U are correct. But without a system of money you could also have your house built by a professional builder.
FINALLY, SOMEONE WHO MAKES SENSE. AN INTELLIGENT GROWNUP WHO KNOWS HOW IMPORTANT MONEY IS IN A SOCIETY. KUDOS TO DASHINGSCORPIO.
Who made it important?
It's only important because tyrants have made the rules and forced everyone to follow. When the people agree that the Emperor is naked the house of cards falls down.
Money is an abstract concept created as a means to subjugate the masses. Once money has been made obsolete evil men will no longer have control. Money is not required for a vibrant economy. It is only required to keep tyrants in power.
You are talking about the discredited theory of social Dawinsim. The Iroquois were not 'cave men' & were more sophisticatedicated in human rights than conquering Europeans. So ...... Get off you high horse Ma'am. Errrr. Not talking about Aztecs
The Arawak, the Taino people were healthy and happy when Columbus arrived. He revealed this in his journal. They did not have a monetary system such as this. This is a system of slavery.
Ive seen it called babylonian debt slavery. Watch katy perry video "chained to the rhythm"...spot on depiction of our situation
