There is a guy who primarily lives in Utah, by the name of Daniel Suelo, who has been living without money for over ten years now. While it moneyless living may seem odd, I think he fits perfectly as a great in history because of his philosophies and reasoning behind doing it.Check out his web page and blog and you'll see what I mean.
..so I ask your opinion; is he REALLY living without money, or is it just that someone else is paying for what he has and uses? Because clearly Google is paying for his website since he is hosting it on their servers for free, and someone is paying for those web servers, the power to keep them running and the staff of IT dudes who admin the system at Google. Is he really "cash and debt free" or merely living off other people and a form of welfare?
IMHO he's trying to show us that we can live more simply without all the complicated, wasteful, unbalanced, and sometimes straight messed up things we deal with on a daily basis...saying basically that we should give more freely instead of relying solely on money. As far as being free of money, while we live in a world where money is the dominating force, I doubt anyone will ever fully escape it's influence. I'm not even sure if it'll ever go out of use either.
his existence relies on other people earning money
...who has been living without money for over ten years now...
As do all wandering Buddhist monks in Asia. This is not a valid argument. He lives in a money free zone of his own making. Whether other people wish to give him "free" stuff is up to them.
...his existence relies on other people earning money, even if he does not.
I Know It Is Possible To Live With Zero Money, Abundantly
No body is angry at Harrison Ford for being rich, but the CEOs of some of the banks and corps have not made the world better while getting obscene profits for causing mass suffering.Money is important, using it wisely or skilfully is even more important.
I like your thinking DB.Not so much living on no money, more living on your money, not mine.
