Root of All Evil

The daily dose of a Daily Prompt by the Daily Post.

If you could un-invent something, what would it be? Discuss why, potential repercussions, or a possible alternative.


Yes, you heard me. If I could, I would un-invent money. As we all know, money has been making our lives turn around, making our world fully dependent on it. With this piece of metal or paper, we are able to buy our wants and needs, and sustain our own lives. But money has been identified as “the root of all evil” for a reason. Crimes are being committed because of this prime object. Some people get obsessed in getting much of this and it’s never enough for them causing harm to other people.

Without money, there will be no ranking of who is the richest or the poorest of all. There would be an essence of equality. It would not be even about the object of exchange anymore, but it would be more about the “why?”. People have a tendency to buy things that are not  even necessary just because they have more or extra money at that instance. Without money, the value of a material would be worth more.

I would prefer the old-time practice of trading as an alternative. For the most, the expression “you reap what you sow” will play out fully and that hardwork  is being recognized more. You just have to think of what would make you gain much in trading and start doing it.

  1. Ditto. 4 weeks ago a 19-year old (only child) was murdered for 600 INR roughly 12$. I mean WTH? There are millions of stories like this but this one happened in my extended family so I feel even worse about it.
    Un-inventing money will remove so many problems and crimes from our world!
