A crash course in changing the world.
At first I was stumped; so I did what anyone called Amber Sofia would do.
See, I have travelled a lot. I have used so many different currencies it's not funny. I have haggled with dirhams in Dubai, donated Australian dollars to charities, and bought bread with euros.
So I was running out of currencies to use, when I decided the money I was going to use, wasnt money at all. It was more like trading. I do something for you, you do something for me.
So what happened was mum did me a few favours, got me some cavases/pains/art materials I needed (because I was running out) and in turn I helped mum. My side of the deal ended up as an extensive cleaning of the house, lifting heavy loads and doing heavy-duty work outside.
I found it more satisfying than an exchange of money through hands. The work was sometimes hard and tiresome, but I felt happier with the overall outcome of the situation. The process of do-something-for-me, do-something-for-you was repeated with my sister, but this time not in relation to objects with an actual material worth, We just helped eachother out. Even though we often do no get on, there was a great sense of comradship.
A future without money is a happy future, but people have become so attached to their bank notes that it would seem impossible. In reality, money is just a number. We place to much value on it. Money makes the world go round, but who wants to sit in a ferrari while people are surviving on little nothing? I couldn't live like that - could you?
