an economy without money - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
...Why do we work? Ask any retired person if they want to sit around doing nothing. I can tell you, they don’t. People love to be busy, they love to help, they love to make things better, they love to solve puzzles and be part of a team. They love to be home with their families too, enjoying more time with their children. We have more nurses, doctors, teachers, engineers, scientists. We don’t have many office workers. We have no bankers, no accountants, no financial investments. We scaled down the police force when crime vanished, now they just assist with taking folks to hospital. What happened to all the financial sector workers? They took a long vacation like everyone else and then found a new hobby or volunteered for something they wanted to do like helping to care for the sick kids and refugees that came in a steady flow.
Perhaps you think we wouldn't want the refugees to come, but you have to understand that without chasing money, without making products no-one really needed and then spending millions on advertising them we had more real wealth than we knew what to do with. We had so many extra resources, people and surplus energy - for making food, building homes and running other essential services. People only did jobs they really loved and believed in, I can hardly exaggerate the difference that made.
Now whenever we have more homes ready we open the boarders to more refugees and welcome them like the long lost family they are. Our hearts are as full as our wheat fields. We donate it abroad now in bags that simply say "Love from Canada" on the side. We don't ask for anything in return, we are quite blessed to have most of what we need, but things come anyway and are distributed. Olives come Love from Italy, Oranges and grass fed beef come Love from the USA, Cheeses come Love from England. We are truly blessed and year on year we spread the blessings to everyone on earth - and not just food, sanitation, electricity, hope
We still have high technology. Father didn’t want us going back to the stone age - just to stop causing such pollution and devastation. Once we put our minds to virtuous cycles and structures without centralized power it was simple. Anyway, reach up, take an apple. Bite it. That’ll be a dollar - **keeps straight face** - I’m kidding! Seriously, lighten up, I told you it’s all as free as the sunshine and rain. We charge for breathing though, if we tax that just think of all the money! Oh, kidding again. Anyway, it means nothing, money was fake anyway. It was more or less just a means of rationing things unfairly. “Be a good kid, work hard and we’ll give you enough digits to raise a family in extreme stress unless you are good at math, then you’ll have just as much stress but a fancier car and house.” Father says they just stress out the parents, who then stress out each other, who then stress out the kids. So up goes divorce, down goes happiness and Love. I take offense to the whole thing, you see Father is Love. Your old system made him pretty unhealthy. He stuck it out though, never gave up. What, you didn’t see or hear him? Alright, I was going to talk about that tomorrow, how he never left or gave up...
We don't work for money anymore, we work to make His world better, to heal the damage our kind has caused. We work to share His world in a more equitable way, to bring peace where there is discord and comfort to the sorrowful.
An economy without money. Just think about it.
No one is forced to work; people do their jobs out of the kindness of their heart, just for the wellbeing of themselves and others. Need some food? Just go to the shop, pick it up, and walk out. You're not stealing. It was made for you, and everyone else.
There would be little to no thefts. Why steal something when it's free? Besides, if something's been stolen from you, you can simply go and pick up another one from the shop. Sure, the shop might be far, or maybe you won't have any of the things you've stored in your device, if any, but it's not the end of the world. And stealing from a shop is impossible; everything's free anyway.
What about spoilt brats? You can't really be a spoilt brat if everyone else is equal, and can get exactly what you have.
But who will build our roads? Fly our planes? Plant and harvest our food?
Anyone could. If only there were enough good in this world. If only we weren't at risk of people simply being evil or greedy. Because how can you be greedy if there's no money?
If only we lived in an economy without money.
