Well is it?
I don't know, but I'd like to be given the chance to find out.
"Money doesn't talk; it swears." -- Bob Dylan
I know what everyones expecting me to say - but, no. I don't think there's one root cause of evil.
Moneys a factor...along with other things. Ego being one.
No, people are the root of all evil. Evil is deliberately choosing to do harm. Money is just a symptom of the evil humans do, it's just an expression of power.
"For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows."
The next verse:
"But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness."
So right away it's important to note that a "man of God" should flee from the "love of money', which might cause him to stray from his faith. Puts it in a different context, doesn't it?
Many concepts surround "money" and "evil". It's important to try and view the question with as little baggage as possible, difficult as that may be.
People are the root of all evil. Money is a figment of our imaginations, attempting to give worth and ownership to things that we really have no control over. We don't own anything, and none of our money means anything to anyone but ourselves. Money is a tool to trade services, goods, and land. It is just paper and pulp that aids in the process of human trade. I would say the concept of ownership is the root of all evil, but in reality humans have created all evils for themselves. A bunch a fuckin' idiots I say. (including myself).
Fashion fascists and the plastic pantomime.
An unequal distribution of and access to resources is the problem.
Fear and greed fuel it.
People that say it is ...or those that say it can't buy happiness are usually the ones that are loaded.I've yet to meet a poor person who thinks likewise.
.....in a snow filled sky, we'll make it all right to come undone.
Isn't it the love OF money?
Not money itself?
