Money is the root of all evil. Do you agree?

Absolutely. Here is a short list of the EVIL things money has done for me lately:

-- Paid for repairing my air conditioning, providing a cool living space for my family (in Texas, BTW).

-- Allowed me to eat healthy food for the last few years. And the last 31 years before then.

-- Paid for medical care that ensured my wife delivered a healthy baby girl, even though my daughter was born a month early.

I think you get my point: The root of all evil is POVERTY, not money.

Yes, greed hurts people and often hurts the greedy person as well. Ambition that has no regard for friends or family or love will eventually consume the workaholics and overachievers of the world (if not tempered and controlled). But this has nothing to do with money itself.

Money is merely a means of exchanging economic values. And EVERYTHING boils down to economics: Meaning, everything is related to choices about the usage of scarce resources such as water, air, time, parental care, love and devotion, labor, etc.

To say that the root of all evil is money is to say that the root of all evil is economics. Which, I suppose, has more merit as a proverb.

But please notice that only three kinds of people ever say that "money is the root of all people":

-- poor people
-- people who have been hurt by the greed of others or their own greed
-- people who don't know what the hell they're talking about

And, yes, the originator of that phrase was, by all accounts, a poor man.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

The phrase which you have uttered is certainly one of the more despicable thoughts. Ask yourself what is money? money is simply representative of product, that which someones mind and effort created, that which sustains man's life, so is it the product you hate, or the fact you need to produce in order to survive. Or is it the love of money which the root of all evil? why would it be wrong to love that production, that which enables not only people to eat, but travel around the world in hours, cure diseases once attributed by mystics to angry gods, accelerate sub-atomic particles to speeds approaching light, you are sitting there typing into a computer which has been created by countless hours of effort, think of the time spent in school, countless hours of late night studying, the passion someone had to have for their ideas to bring them forth and integrate them in the world of ideas, voluntarily producing a product which you voluntarily agreed to trade him for with your produce, reprsented by money, by further produce. is that what you think is the root of all evil? Money represents all that is good in man, do not be confused by an inverted morality, which proclaims thatfor you to be good you must accept the fact that the good is the non good for you, that is selfishness. and they claim that true morality can only be found in the selfless, it is the philosophy of altruism, and its only end is the abolition of the self, to lose ones values and finally ones sense of reason. which happens to be mans basic tool of survival.

No. Certainty is.

"The jews killed jezus."
"god exists."
"Stalin is the supreme authority."
"Saddam has WMDs."

When you have doubts about your own ideas, you're willing to consider other's thoughts and rights and tend to kill fewer people.

Of course, what can you get with out it. Love? no, try and get a wife or husband if your dead broke and living out of your broken down pinto. Money makes the world turn, and people will do anything for it. Hence, it is the root of all evil.

No. Both "good" and "evil" are value judgments each of us has to make for ourselves. Money is nothing more than a tool we use as a medium of exchange.

Define money and define evil.

Our current monetary system could be called evil because it is a currency propped up not by value or wealth but it created out of thin air. It is thus not a system of how much things are worth but perpetually how much stuff is owed.

Also, it is propped up by a government, which claims a monopoly on the threat or use of deadly force to--among other things--ensure that its currency is the only one that gets used.

So money as we currently understand it now might be evil but it is certainly not the root of evil. That honor would have to go to hubris as the "root of all evil."

However, wealth, value, private property and free market capitalism are not evil in and of themselves, either. They are simply cooped towards evil ends sometimes.

well money can create greed...selfishness...and evil...but i also think money is good..it can bring happiness...part happiness...and it can help people that are in need...

Actually love of money is. most people don't realize money is a tool like everything else.. You just got to utilize it wisely...and do not fall in love with it.
