Why is everyone in this world so greedy for money? It's really not that great. Most expensive things are useless and only exist to make somebody else rich.
Is it mass media and hollywood that tells us we need these things to be happy? I live a simple life and i'm really happy with where i'm at
Money buys things that may contribute to happiness. That's pretty much it.
Also, there's the whole women thing. If you plan to have a wife/long-term woman-- you pretty much are going to need capital since evolution has raped our asshole. Metaphorically.
>which makes you more interesting
Part of the problem is that people fall for, "oh x will make you happy!" Because they want to feel accepted in a community. Your happiness should be prioritized over what makes you interesting to other people

Because it can be trade for goods and services, like food, transportation, and healthcare. Believe it or not, a lot of people want or need money for those things, not iPhones. The sooner you realize that you are, on a fundamental level, the same as the materialist plebs you mock, the sooner you can achieve true freedom from their needs and desires.
healthcare and foods are human rights and should be paid for by a social safety net funded by taxation
Wrong. If you are on welfare, you are potential slave. If you earn your own money, you are, in no way, a slave. You choose to go to work, you choose to run your own business, you choose to go out there and steal from others. If you rely on someone for your sustenance, they can withdraw your sustenance at any time for any reason. They coerce you into doing whatever they wish.
Yes there is. Employed people, whether they're employed by a company or self-employed are freed by competition and cooperation. You employer can withdraw your employment, but he can also have his income withdrawn if he does not enough workers to produce the goods he sells. A person on welfare however, has no suchj freedom. They either do what the government says, other wise they starve. The government does not lose out from you starving, they gain more money for themselves.
Only because capitalism supports the welfare state. However, receiving welfare makes you a potential slave, the government controls what you have access to. Human rights are laws of nature, they can be given or taken at any time.
