Would people survive a world with no monetary existance?
What do you think would happen if we made money obsolete and everything were free? Would greed and domination take over, or would civilized people be able to live in an "EVERSHARING" existance?
I don't think that people would just share their goods freely. But as was before the invention of currency we would most likely regress to a barter system.
I think it would take a lot of adjusting, not sure how it would work but I guess back in the day you just had a profession and would trade for other goods. It would all really depend on kindness and compassion that people give as well I think
What you'd get is that the people we know today as the rich, would simply go about finding a way to hoard up the other things that were of value to humanity. If you take a look at Sun Tzu's the Art of War, the control of land was the goal of business in that day. It was that way because the Earth was made by God to provide man's needs. Control of the land meant control of agriculture and farming. That meant that people had to go to the land owners to both work and get food to eat. The monetary layer was put into place to shift the idea of "Value" from those things produced from the earth, even though those are still the most valuable things. The monetary system is more of a convenience, not a requirement.
That would be a true utopia for the liberals. However, it would create a sloven world where people would not do anything to create or deeply interact with each other. People would become shallow and withdrawn.
I'm not saying everyone would become sloven, but just as socialism fails, a free entitlement society would be a failure too.
Human beings need to be active and creative to be healthy both physically and mentally. Incentive to be active and creative would be squelched, and society as a whole would be seriously deminished. A meaningful society may even cease to exist.
Creativity and barter for it are neccessary. Money is the modern tool for that. If you want someones creation for whatever reason, you should be willing to pay for it.
