    Well that's not true, read earlier posts (happiness, justice etc.)

    Are love, care and attention what you really want when you're poor? I'd rather have money and soon enough I would have those things as well.



    Please explain yourself
    Family comes together in the face of adversity you seem to believe that it is only financial situations but family help with problems no matter how small. I flooded the house once who was it who came to help? Family.

    How did they help?

    "no matter how small" - this is a thread about the most important things... I want to know how family can help you more than money can since that was your reason.

    Family have been helping each other throughout history long before money was ever thought of and there are still tribes doing this today.

    Surely by your idea that you can get it done better by other people means people are the most important thing.

    Which is better: having no money but having your dignity, or having lost your dignity but having money?

    If you were starving would you rather have money or your dignity?

    Already responded to family, look above. Also not everyone agrees in a god so I will leave that aside.

    But money can get people to do what you want whereas just having friends doesn't mean they will always be able to help you.

    Obviously we're not talking about slaves here.

    Weapons and blackmail can also get people to do what you want.

    And once again you come back to people, without people money is pointless.

    But money is a legal, easy way of doing it. What do you mean 'without people'? If there are no people the human race is over so nothing is important anymore.

    I'm talking about right now on this planet what is the most important thing? So far the only answer is money since no-one including you has justified anything else as more important.

    Family can help with emotional support like o e time when I was really depressed and feeling suicidal my family provided a lot of emotional support to help me get better.

    And you haven't justified money, your main argument is that it can get people to do things which means people have to have the skills to do what you want them to.

    There are still other options to get people to do what you want

    Interested to know your views. If you think something is more important, please explain how this can be achieved without money and whether or not money helps to achieve it.
    Husband and kids, that's what will be important to me in the future. Happy family can be achieved with kindness and understanding. Money means nothing.

    Everyone knows why money is very important. The question is whether it is the most important thing.

    I don't think you understand. Money is the easiest and quickest and sometimes the only way to get what you want. That is why it is the most important.

    I don't need to justify it any further. This thread is about reasons why something else might be more important which you have not been able to argue. First you mentioned family, then people in general and now "other options" which I am dying to know what you mean by that...

    Yeah cos we all know kids cost nothing... I'd love to hear how you've managed to live up to this point without money seeing as it 'means nothing'.

    Is people not hating you the most important thing? Cos if it is, money can achieve that.

    Money is the most important thing and I wanted to write this thread myself. It never lets you down unlike family, lovers, friends.

    Money is the most important thing in the world because you cant have Happiness without Freedom, and in this world the only way you get Freedom is with Money.
