Anyone who lives in a society where goods and services can only be obtained with money is going to have the same opinion about money as the next person - those who need it most don't have enough of it, and those who have a lot are primarily concerned with obtaining more. There have always been 3 classes in society - the people at the top, the people in the middle, and the people on the bottom. The only thing that changes from one time or place to another is what percentage each makes up of the total. The people on the bottom dream of making it to the middle, the people in the middle dream of making it to the top, and the people at the top dream of being richer than everybody else in their class. Revolutions will occasionally depose the top and allow the middle to move up, but generally the people at the bottom stay where they are. That's what intelligent people think about money. It's just a way of imprisoning people for life. Eventually we'll find a better way.
