The concept of money has been around since the dawn of time. However, as many people know, money is often the cause of greed and corruption. I find that the world would be a much better place without money.

I've put a lot of thought into this, and I have to admit, I have a feeling that having such a complex topic for my first debate will come back and bite me in the neck.

Leave a comment or message me if you'd like to take up this challenge. Bear in mind, despite my "rookie" status on this site, I'd like to think of myself as a formidable opponent.

As agreed by PRO this round shall be for acceptance.
Since he is the one making the claim and since he is essentially going against the status quo he will have the BOP.

Money is the backbone of commerce. It's something that has brought great order to our civilization and I don't believe it is overall disadvantageous.

Money is typically a medium of exchange. Anything good can be corrupted and be made bad by an evil mind. It's not the tool but the person who uses it who controls the result the tool can produce. Just because knives can be used to kill people doesn't give us enough reasons to brand that knives are a threat to humanity. Anyhow, not to deviate, PRO has an unnfulfilled BOP and hence the resolution has been negated.

To Wolf, I'm basically saying the world should be money free. People should work to earn their keep, and instead of giving someone money to reward them, they should be provided with food, shelter, and healthcare along with other basic needs.

I have accepted this debate and will post my acceptance in round 1, if it's okay with the instigator?

Money as in paper/coin currency? Are you suggesting we revert to a barter based economy? Or is everything virtually free? Can you specify?
