Never enough money. You're hooked on the stuff. Strung out. Money is a highly addictive, consciousness-contracting drug and constant abouse of it has damaged our brains, shrunk our minds to the extent that we can no longer imagine how to live without it. It has got so bad that people who cannot get enough money drop dead.
At first it is free. When you were a kid they gave you a little bit of it so you could buy a toy you wanted or some candy. You didn't want the money, you wanted the toy. the money was only a means to an end. But you got a taste of it and it gradually, inevitably, grew into a hunger and now you live in the Money World.
The Money World poisons the Life World and feeds off it and it will eventually kill the Life World. Then, the Money World will also die, because it needs the Life World. But the Life World doesn't need it.
You need it, though, or you think you do, because you are are crazy. The money has made you crazy. You can't eat and you live on the street because you don't have any money. You need money and you'd humiliate yourself to get it. You'd get a job and people would walk in and piss on you and then someone would hand you some money -- but never quite enough money. Never enough, they never give you enough.
