      However, although not so long ago money was referred to as the "last taboo," our currency is getting more attention than all sorts of abuse. Abuse is the object of the money hoarders, those who would sequester the contents of the public purse, the aggressors against women and children and migrants, whether foreign or inter-state. Abuse is the essence of the deprivation of rights and, to our shame, not all abuse is considered a crime.
      I used to think that the appropriate venue for governmental entities are what, in some circles (though not in the online dictionary), are referred to as disutilities:

      fire
      flood
      injury
      invasion
      infestation
      incarceration
      ignorance

      The seven 'i's, which are mostly unintended. More recently, I've realized that there is a category of humans that actually delights in tormenting their fellow men, and women, etc. Some exploit because they don't know any better; but some exploit for the fun of it. Other people's distress makes them feel good (powerful). Those people need to be actively countered. They don't kill to eat like natural predators. They don't even kill. They torture. And the culture of obedience makes it legal under the rubric of sacrifice and discipline.
      Money is one of their tools, but there are others.

      We organize governments to deliver services and prevent abuse.
