True! Money is power as knowledge is power as many things are or can be power. And with all of them they are raw power. Power for good and power for evil. Without empathy and compasion to direct raw power, distruction and corrosion are just as easily achieved as productive ends.

True. You can do a lot if you have plenty of money.

True. It is also the root of evil, so please give all of yours to me 🙂

True, in this social structure

To an extent. People with a lot of money see like they can do a lot, but there doesn't seem to be a guarantee that they will be happy.

That depends on how much power I let it have over me.

Yes and no. It gives freedom if you work for it, but it can go to your head if it's handed to you.

Bob Dylan: "Money don't talk. It swears!".

Propaganda all is phony.

False.
It has been said that pot will get you through times of no money better than money will get you through times without pot. Power doesn't figure in anywhere, so it must not matter.

Not the Power I want... For a different human being... only game in town. I let them be.

Depends what the power is. For control and authority, yes. For freedom and peace of mind, no

I say it makes power, false.

Money isn't power, money gives power. It allows you to influence people, and influence over people's actions is the definition of power. There are other things, though, like religion, personality, skills. So money and power aren't identical, but money certainly is one aspect of power in today's society.

One word: POUTS!

Don't know about power, it's more like how we react to it. Many possibilities, too long to discuss here. Suffice to say, whoever has it then will be despised for it, which is wrong .......

Power comes in many forms. Money is absolutely one form of power

A stateless classless moneyless society

Such a society would never last. If there is no state, then whose going to stop people from banning together and forming a state?

information and money are definitely power
