Just for fun, I punched the words “money used for good” into a search engine. The results I got were all about capital gains and buying cars.
Money isn’t the root of all evil. It’s more like one of those situations where you thought it was a forest, but it all turns out to be one tree; the trunks turn out to be branches, all connected to one root.
Yes. Evil is a Pando tree. Not to say the Pando tree is evil. It’s a metaphor, so don’t freak out. The Pando could just as easily be a metaphor for how we humans all seem to be autonomous and different (which we are), but are actually one (which we also are).
Money is just another branch.
Our capacity to fool ourselves and others is the root.
