Lives vs money

[Facebook – Pete Dawson’s post yesterday 21/3/20 ]

Michael Holmes – Lives are more important than money.

Money is only numbers.

We need to keep essential production and distribution going, nothing else really matters.

Everybody must have energy, water, food, medical, communications, everything else can wait.

If we need to change the way that we create the numbers that are money to make that happen, then we have to do that – and that is just how it must be.

What is important are people, goods and services.

At this time, it is only essential goods and services that are really important, everything else can wait.

Money is just a tool – just numbers in a system, just a useful myth that people believe, that works only because people believe it. Now we are going to have to expose and examine some of the underlying things about such beliefs, and some in society will do everything in their power to prevent such critical examination. Right now you seem to be aiding and abetting them – I hope unintentionally.
