(Stillness in the Storm Editor) The following is an excellent essay on poverty consciousness and the effect of monetary systems on spiritually immature beings, by Lisa Rene. In my own studies of the consciousness-distorting effects of our ways of life, the use of money in an ignorant way has been socially destructive. When people rely on representations of value (money) in an unconscious way, they begin to subconsciously identify money as the thing of value (externalization), instead of their values being represented by money (internalization). The difference seems minor but over long enough spans of time, the values of a people tend become increasingly egocentric instead of altruistic, making the population, in general, ripe for manipulation by the elite.
