Money is the Root of all Evil

Money is the root of all evil is a saying that is bandied around rather a lot by the misinformed.

Actually the original saying was ‘for the love of money is the root of all evil’.  No matter.

As with all persistent untruths there is a degree of truth to the saying.  Governments reared their ugly heads a very short time after money was discovered by free markets.  What was the point of being a government if there was no wealth to steal?

It was money that made possible the accumulation of wealth which so raised the standards of living on this planet that we went from  10,000 people to 6.8 billion people.

However, it was also money that brought about governments who most certainly are evil.  So yes, looked at from that point of view only, ‘money is the root of all evil’.

But dogs have fleas.  The solution is not to pronounce that ‘dogs are the root of all disease’, the solution is to get rid of the fleas.
