The root cause of most of the major problems facing modern humanity is our monetary addiction. Money is the most addictive substance on the planet and the most deadly. Every person who uses money is addicted. Money enables all other addictions.

Basic Income - An immediate step in the transition

I just saw this documentary, suggested by Lukáš Fireš, and it brought tears to my eyes :'), because here is something implementable now, that reduces the focus on profit in this system, and empowers individuals, indirectly reducing competition and stimulating cooperation.

- Albert Camus

I hope that this will prove better for understanding as it is not so complex, but still uses the same mechanisms.
