Money, The Root Of All Evil

549 words - 3 pages

Money has screwed up society a lot. The times long ago were not focused around a green piece of paper that we have labeled as money. This piece of paper got an amount and then finally you have to have it. True, money buys you things. Things that you want. Things that you need. To me, money is just that; a thing. A thing to which we treat like a God. A piece of paper that we carry around and every now and then do something worth while with it. Money does three things.

It's all a power trip.The people who do not make too much are not too happy. They do not have that the nice new car that their neighbor has. They always want something that someone else has because they think it'll make them better.Now, those who have money are unhappy a lot. They can never get enough. Everything that they have needs to be updated and when they get the item it's already old so they end up replacing it. The rich never get to sit back and enjoy what they have. They are to busy buying.Soon the individuals who make hardly anything somehow find a way to make more. Their focus becomes a way to keep the money coming. The focus disappears from their activities and family. The wealthy loose interest in time spent with their families also. Many loose interest in their life. The main focus becomes what to spend the hundred grand on today and then how to make more to make up for what they just blew.I am not stereo-typing all Americans. Some are content with their lives and the way they live. Many don't worry about the money situation. The ones who do though, stick out in our society.If we could all appreciate the way life is, the fun, and the beauty I think America would be better. If people weren't power hungry maybe we'd have a lesser demand for money. Those few people who are money hungry and power hungry need to relax. Money can't buy you happiness. These few individuals need to understand that. Hopefully, in the near future money will become less important and we will begin to focus more on other things like enjoying our beautiful country.
