Title: A world without money
Post by: FGFG on June 28, 2009, 04:59:06 AM
[This is the contnuation of a topic in the general section witch was going off topic ("NASA to blast a crater into the Moon!" - page 2). I quoted the last post of it here]

There is a problem when you have to assign goods to people: maybe one work is harder than another, and so it should be "paid" with goods more than the second. Actually is quite difficult to do it without money: you still have to "quantify" the work, that is already done, with money. The fact that some hard work is less paid than a less hard work is different (and should be changed). It will be much more easy to create a world without money - awwm from here). Without money (the way you want it) people who doesn't work at all will have the same rights of people who do.
Awwm (in my opinion) can exist only if robots do all the works on the planet. (however there would be someone to reasearch new robots or create new works according to the needs of people. We can still create some robots to do this, sure, but we will definitely lose the control of our lives, or we can mantain the research wich is a form of work and should be paid... more rights, more power bla bla bla.)

I'm just explaining my point. I don't want to be harsh with anyone :)

Some people like to work. Look at Dan. I bet he doesn't make a lot of money with US(but i think he should, but sorry society isn't very nice to small brand names) but he does it anyways. He wants to help us enjoy the universe, the most fascinating thing I can think of.

You see the jobs that cannot be done by robots, are easily enjoyed by people. People like knowing they've done something most other people can't do. It makes them feel special.

However they must be voluntary and not paid. This make lower the number of people doing it. Dan, as you said, didn't earned much (however we can't be sure. It could have received some money from Discovery channel for the documentary), but he still earned something. It isn't totally voluntary. It could have started voluntary, but gaining a little money helped him to go on (I beleve. Dan, please, correct me if i'm wrong :))
