It is very possible that your life could be changed irrevocably by the simple occurrence that that someone didn’t see the instant worth of investing in someone else, who may have in turn then been able to help you when you really needed it.
Currency is the simple man’s understanding of value. It was created as an instant re-compensation for services acquired from people who lived outside of your community who you could not really barter with, because they might not be around later to repay a favor. Our downfall is not currency actually, because the human action of investing positively is not at all limited to money (no matter what we tell ourselves). Our downfall is our laziness and our impatience to be rewarded for the actions or services we provide others.
Sometimes art makes you think. To quote art.. “Human progress isn’t measured by industry. It’s measured by the value you place on a life. An unimportant life. A life without privilege” -DW
