Regardless of whom you are, or what you do. As long as you live amongst society, you’re dependent on that evil green stuff. Ah, yes money – “the root of all evil”. For it is money that can be traced to materialism, commercialism, status, poverty, crime, and an entire slew of soul crushing malevolence.
But the point of this post isn’t to denounce capitalism, nor is it to articulate any sort of communist manifesto.
Realistically (albeit hastily generalized) we only truly have a few options on how we can choose to partake in the money game. We can –
A) condemn money/civilization and live amongst the wolves
B) condemn money/civilization and live in the dreary depths of our parent’s basement
C) sell our soul for a buck, and play the money game to pay for life’s ‘necessities’
If you’re like most people you chose option “C”, and there’s nothing wrong with that. The vast majority of people will have to work the majority of their lives just to survive. Yikes!
With that being said, there are varying degrees to which one can pursue the art of collecting monies. We can dive head over heals in capitalistic fiery, or we can walk placidly through this rat-maze and spare ourselves just enough cheese to get through the winter.
To complicate things even more, there are many ways to skin this proverbial cat.
This week I’d like to switch things up a bit and open the floor to some good ole’ fashion discourse. Particularly I’d like to know:
1. What is your current, future, and ideal plan for making money?
2. What do you plan to do with your money?
3. How do you view the concept of capitalism? Are there better alternatives, if so what? If not, why?
I’m looking forward to hearing everyone’s view – and with that ladies and gentlemen, Lil’ Wayne….
“Money over bitches I’m yellin’ it to the grave
Developed at a young age go after what pays
These Cabana sunshades block the sun rays
I drop a car note in the mall on the first day”
