  •  Actually money is the problem, (1+ / 0-)

    or, more correctly, the misuse of money.  Instead of using money as an instrument to calculate relative value and mediate transactions, money is being used as a tool of suppression by denying some people ready access to it.  Domination is being exercised behind the shield of money.  It's really nothing more than mom at the check-out counter saying there's not enough money to buy candy, except on the macro level it's not enough money to buy:

    education
    medical care
    housing
    roads
    bridges
    dams
    child-care
    nutritious food

    But, there's plenty of money to gamble, to speculate in fine wines, to jet around the globe, etc.

    You could say that the misuse of money is like the misuse of sexual intercourse to dominate.  Money is the last taboo for a reason.
