A Warning For Americans - Is Money The Root Of All Evil?

Is money the root of all evil? Mike Maloney discusses this provocative question in this brief clip. Starting with the following short extract from Ayn Rand (who incidentally was born in the Crimea region of Ukraine):

"When you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing; when you see that money is flowing to those who deal not in goods, but in favors; when you see that men get rich more easily by graft than by work, and your laws no longer protect you against them, but protect them against you, you may know that your society is doomed." - Ayn Rand

Maloney (and his team) express their mission thus:

To enlighten the world that maximum prosperity can only be achieved through individual freedom, free markets, and sound money.

As he noted in his first documentary,

"Your true wealth is your time and freedom. Money is just a tool for trading your time. It's a container to store your economic energy until you are ready to deploy it. But the whole world has been turned away from real money, and has been fooled into using currency - a deceitful imposter that is silently stealing your two most valuable assets - your time, and your freedom."
