If money was not thought of or deleted from the societies equation...like " star trek" think of what humanity could accomplish for the greater good of all mankind..animals and planet earth...if we stopped putting price tags on basic needs..how much healthier and intelligent would future generations evolve into?

I think something like what you are thinking of has already been tried in the early part of the 20th century. It was called Communist Russia. It didn't work out too well. Utopian schemes will only work in small groups. Sorry if I busted your bubble.

On November 8, 2016 I became aware that while I and many like me would love to live in a "Star Trek" universe, instead we live in something much more like "Star Wars" and Jar Jar Binks has the nuclear football.

Hmm perhaps? Would those with a propensity to overindulge in consuming food and drink, consume themselves into oblivion leaving the rest to evolve into superior humans? Possibly.

Everyone tells me that a society can't last without money. But it lasted for hundreds if not thousands of years without money as we know it now. We traded.

Poverty wasn't an issue until humans created money. With money came the class system. The nobles and upper class were wealthy and because they were wealthy, they had all the power. That unequal system has lasted into modern day.

There's no way to have a society without putting some form of value on things. But it doesn't need to be quantified by a monetary system.

I heard the phrase said that if it weren't for religions, our societies would be at least 1000 years more advanced. I don't know about 1000 but I do believe it would be a significant difference.

I think it's just natural for the barter system to evolve into a monetary system simply for convenience.

Why drag around a bunch of livestock to trade when you can just pass some gold coins back and forth?

There will always be trade and creates value. Some will always have more than others and crime will always exist.

As for Star Trek- Trade and gold pressed latinum.
