It's a deplorable system we're living under. People need to wake up and smell the coffee. This "free" market economy doesn't benefit the common man and woman. It only benefits the top echelons in power who've rigged the system to where no one else can rise up.
Moneyless in Moab
This is what capitalist greed has brought us! It has a stifling effect on new and improved technologies being implemented because the rich ruling elites don't want to loose their power. We've been sold a bill of lies and we've bought into it hook,line,and sinker. The monetary system keeps the poor poor,makes the rich richer,and does away with the middle class all-together. That's what's taking place in this once great nation of ours. If mankind ever awakens en mass to the fact that the whole concept of money is illusory the whole system would be revamped overnight. That would end the oligarchy's control almost immediately and they would be held accountable for all the ills they've perpetrated upon the populace.

Meet Roy Ramirez. He's living life as a penniless tramp and experiencing both the freedom it offers as well as enduring the hardships that come along with it. Both Roy and Daniel are brave souls and aren't just talking the talk; they're walking the walk. It's people like them that help restore my faith in mankind. You guys rock!
