Money is the most important thing in the world, because there is nothing you cannot buy with money. Money is essential for living, you need money to buy food, water, electricity, books, etc.

I'm guessing this is just another blank debate. I suppose that air (oxygen, nitrogen, and the like) is more important since it is necessary for life to exist on the world (Earth). Negated?

Air is indeed important we need it to survive.

But money is more important as without money, society, the world will not survive. Money is needed to keep everyone motivated to do something with their lives. Money is what keeps the world from collapsing into chaos, money gives everyone in the world a reason to be educated, to work, to come up with new ideas, new businesses, life is not worth anything without the existence of money.

Air is essential but air gives us no meaning we would die without it, but without a reason to live we would want to die anyway, or we would kill each other because of all the chaos anyway. Air helps us live, but money gives us a reason to live.

I'm pretty sure that survival is more important than being able to buy an iPod. Many societies have existed without money. Many Native American Tribes had no currency, they either traded with each other or shared what they had.

"life is not worth anything without the existence of money."

I must say then that you have a very sad life, I pity you.

Money as in currency? Or money as in what we put value in? Are you arguing pro-capitalism?

I didn't know at else to talk about, the challenges right now seemed too complicated for my first debate.
