How does the shown object point to a better world?
In my photo you can see nothing more than a small cent piece.
This small object should be a symbol for the following thoughts:
Whenever I hear the word UTOPIA, I immediately think of my childhood, specifically of drawing lessons. Because we had the task to paint the city of the future in the 6th grade. We made many different and crazy pictures: flying cars, strange buildings with plants on them, lemonade from the tap etc. The topic of the future continued to occupy us in other contexts, especially we were told that the future will be moneyless.
I believed that and I still do, or rather I am deeply convinced that it will be logical and logical.
More than ever, I am convinced of the senselessness of money for the last 30 years. Its importance is completely overestimated and worshipped like a fetish.
We are overwhelmed by things we have acquired, believing that we must possess what we consider necessary and important. What if tomorrow there were no more money? Unimaginable! What would we do? How would we act? How would we organize ourselves? Imagine it: from tomorrow no more money, abolished. Everything else is there, only money is gone, it has the meaning of nothingness.
This is how I imagine a better world:
What I have written about the cent piece is my utopia. I don’t know what would happen afterwards, but at least I have been dreaming of the abolition of money since my childhood. Alternatives only arise when the traditional is no longer there or no longer works.
My reasoning tells me that the whole structure of the world would collapse, very possible it is.
Nevertheless it remains a goal for me: the abolition of money. What has to happen in society, in the world, so that something like this can be implemented? Which beliefs must be abandoned? We have to learn to think big again, as children we had no problems with it.
