We live in a world of illusion. Ever since we were set in front of the television to rot in our crap filled diapers, we have been sold a bill of goods on nearly everything we take for granted, particularly with regards to the very nature of money itself. Having been propagandized to believe that money has value, we come to find that such is not the case with the specific currency we have become mentally dependent on for our entire way of life. Most of our waking hours are spent chasing after it, attempting to accumulate more of it, performing tasks we would otherwise prefer to not do, but instead tolerate because we have to somehow “pay the bills.”
