    If a Native American ever said "We can't do anything, we don't have any wampum", we'd think that was silly. "Wampum is just shells, what's that have to do with anything?" But we're saying the same thing. "We have no money". Money is just paper or numbers on a computer.

    I looked out the window this morning, the sun was up, the sky and earth were still there, the people were walking around with air to breathe. So what has changed to make everything so bad? The High Priests took away all the wampum. So, we should just say screw 'em and go on without them. Like we did for thousands of years before money became sacred. But we forgot how to do that. We don't know how to barter any more. We're like children whose parents have disappeared. At some point you have to get on with life without them.
