I Dream of Useless Money

sleep-I Dream of Useless Money

Started watching one of those popular crime TV shows. (Forgive me. Can’t remember the name of the show.) The detectives wanted to get evidence to prove that a father who had been sexually abusing his daughter, murdered his son-in-law, because he wanted his daughter back for himself!


Revolting story line huh? Yeah I know. Sounds just like real life.


Anyway! The daughter found the “evidence” before the detectives did and she planned, rather than have her father go to jail and pay for his crime, she was going to do the “punishing” instead. Oh yeah daddy! It’s reaping time! Let’s see if your abuse can withstand my anger!


The detectives figured out that she was withholding critical evidence so she get her revenge on her father. The lead detective tells his team his plan in order to trick the girl into giving up the evidence. He says something to the effect: “We’ve got to make her think that the evidence is useless.”


Don’t ask me what happened. I didn’t finish watching the show. I got distracted.


But this line in the script, along with an article about who invented money, led me to a thought about money!


Wouldn’t it be nice if we could make money useless?


At the end of the article about who invented money, the question is asked:  “If you were to reinvent money today, what would you use?”


thinker3My answer? I don’t know. But it would be something that everybody in the world could have equal access to.


In this way, there would not be this situation of the haves and the have-nots, and greedy people trying to lord it over poor people, this foolish talk about money is power, etc., etc.  Y’all know who 50 Cent is? He is a popular Rapper in the United States. Instead of people having this “50 Cent ~ get rich or die trying” mentality, people can devote their life to truly profitable work like finding cures for diseases and sickness.  Because really, health is better than money!  Howard Hughes, another famous American entrepreneur, was a rich man. But he died horribly. What good was his money to him?  It was useless!  On a more positive note, there is a Howard Hughes Medical Institute.


You may be thinking: ‘Well if you were a wealthy person you wouldn’t think this way about money. Only poor people think this way.’


My response to that thought would be:


There was once a time in the history of mankind when money was not a god!  I have never lived during that time and was just wondering what it would be like. It’s a dream. No harm in dreaming. 🙂





Wonder of the Day #1265: Who Invented Money?

    1. Oh my, where is the continuation of that crime detective story… I was in the air now. Could you please give the title of that show. Forget about money, its been useless since the people know the importance of love. Money is just a tool to make us live but not to be real happy. I would choose love, life and happiness and not will choose the money. Money is not a god at all. We should not worship money. We should not rely in it. Let you use the money and and money use you.

      Hey, I will will the continuation of that story.

      • OK. Found out for you. The TV series is “Law & Order: Criminal Intent”. I am not a loyal viewer. Just happened to be flipping the channels and the scene was a young girl in the kitchen with two guys and they were cooking together. Because I watch a lot of cooking shows I stopped to see what was going on. 🙂 Hey! If the topic of the discussion is food, count me in! 🙂 Then because I was looking for something else, continued changing the channels and never got back to it.

    2. The story itself is not appealing. I really wonder how the writers make movies with such stories..Father liking his own daughter and abusing her sexually..Mother having relationship with her son….I get vomit when I read such subjects. I took a serious note of Mr. Karan Johar comedy show..You all might be knowing it..The title ‘back chod comedy show”. I addressed the matter directly to the Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi with a copy to the Sensor Board. The Sensor Board after the preview of the show took severe objection and banned the show itself.

      We are all human being and suppose to maintain some values both ethical and moral. Sometimes people may exhaust of the themes to build a movie.It does not mean that he should keep aside the moral and ethical values and do experiment with the themes as per his whims and fancies.

      Because of this type of stories and movies only the relationships in a family are coming to an end. Father liking his own daughter, Mother having relationship with his son, Mother murdering her own daughter are nothing but the outcome of these stories. These writers are really a sin to the society and they all should be banned forthwith.

      • You all in your country may still try to implement censorship in your TV shows and movies. When I was younger and growing up in America there was extreme diligence taken in determining the quality of content presented to the general public. But that kind of effort get tossed out of the wind a long time ago. Not sure when it happened. All I know is things that we were once not able to see on TV or in the movies, we see it now and lots worse! So I enforce my own personal censorship. I can control what I view and watch as “entertainment”. The subject matter of that show hard for me to stomach.

    3. It is a confusing story, no climax found, plot not defied, but as a movie watcher and news listener, I can conclude that the daughter has trumped to put his father behind bars.There is no bad that triumphs at the end, it is always the good. There is police mentioned in the story, in real life, police could also be a contributing factor to mislead the the victim and submit his conspiracy to the evils. All the bad actions of the police and criminals will all turn to futility. Both of them will stay behind bars.

      • I don’t know how the fictional TV show ended, but I do know in America, in real life the girl could be charged with obstruction of justice. Everybody who reads this post, seems to ignore the second half of the post, which is my dream of a world without money. I guess that plot from the crime show is really grabbing everybody’s attention. That was not my intention. (O.o)

    4. Money is just our need but when we want to make a heap of money on our head we cannot bear its burden and fall on the ground none one cares for us in this helpless situation. The story in the article is very sad but greed of money causes many problems in human life.

      Bible says about greed for money. Listen and think…
      Corinthians 6:9-11

      Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.

      And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.

      Matthew 6:24

      “No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.

      We do not read the holy bible that is why we all falling in the greed of money causes crimes all over the world.
