I’m sure you’ve heard someone say that money is the root of all evil. In fairness the biblical quote is actually slightly longer “For the love of money is the root of all evil.” This is an older saying, something you’d be most likely to hear from a generation or two ago, it’s a complete fucking lie.
Money, makes the fucking world go round. Whether you like it or not money is necessary if you plan to live in any sort of organized civilization. Also, money is simply some digital fucking numbers, it can’t be evil. Yes I understand that you sensitive little pricks are yelling that money gives whoever accumulates it power and, you argue, power is evil. But as Robert Green says, power is amoral.
I’m writing this to address a flawed belief system that may be ruining your life. Here is the hard truth — plenty of people have accumulated wealth and they aren’t evil. You’re just lazy and you might be dumb. Oh yes motherfucker, I hate to break it to you, but you might be a lazy dumbass. I didn’t tell you to come read this shit.
Billionaires aren’t holding you back. CEO’s aren’t fucking your life up. You’re shit belief system and victim mentality are fucking up your life. When you take responsibility for your shitty situation and you stop pointing the figure at some vague fucking group of people “CEOs are paid too much” then you will start moving in the right direction.
You’re probably reading this on an iPhone and you probably found this blog through Instagram … both are massive publicly traded companies run by a fuck ton of very very very wealthy people. You’re very digital existence is thanks to massive corporations with extremely well compensated C suite executives and shareholders.
To take it a step further, our human civilization was completely shaped by the invention of money. Money (an exchange of value) at it’s most basic form incentivized people to create more efficient ways of doing things. This is why you get to wake up and share some bullshit on Instagram while you cruise to a fridge full of food — instead of having to go hunt a buffalo with a spear and pray that your cut didn’t get infected because you would die.
This rant comes from a place of love I promise. No one likes to feel like their life is out of control and I swear half of the messaging on social media wants to make it seem like that, as if you are just a victim and all you can do is become more virtuous by bitching about it. The truth is that income mobility has never been more prominent in western cultures, you can literally go from fuck all to a fucking beast in a lambo with a flooded rolex and some bad tingggggs with you (if that’s what you want).
So I want to end this rant by saying … just do it (swoosh). You are capable of obtaining anything that someone else has, you have the capacity to work your ass off and get what you want. I fucking believe in you and you should believe in you too motherfucker. So get the fuck up and go get it. No one is holding you back and money isn’t evil.
