It was put to me some time ago receipts can be a form of currency. I would argue receipts are NOT money, but instead record of payment.
For example if I render a service or sell you something I would give you a receipt after you pay me. Its illogical for the purchaser to then use that receipt to pay for something else. If we did that the purchaser would be getting their money back on the sale & spending it somewhere else, essentially getting everything for nothing. Its stealing basically.
It has also been suggested to me that “paying to be alive” is a somehow a bad thing. To suggest something like this is telling me you have no clue what money is , how its really created & what it truly represents.
In truth money records, evidences & likewise represents the value of our production we give up to each other. Regardless if you’re indoctrinated to believe the lie banks loan us money or not, we have always created money to pay a debt, trade or transaction. If you take the thief (bank) out of the equation however, money simply evidences an act of giving our production to each other. The receipt is only a record of payment by the seller, given to the purchaser. The receipt does not represent the value given up. The receipt is the purchasers “record of payment”, only after payment, so the seller cant come back & say they weren’t payed.
Anyone suggesting “paying to be alive” is a bad thing is basically saying “giving” is a bad thing. In a world free from banking exploitation, or so called loans, paying is merely an act of GIVING to each other. For example if I give up my production to you & you don’t give me your production back in return there is no payment. The fact you haven’t paid me or given up a like representation of your production evidences theft. Therefore money is our protection, that can either evidence theft (non payment) or evidence an act of giving (payment).
For example, the fact banks are neither risking or giving up commensurable value from their otherwise prior legitimate possession evidences THEFT.
Only in a perfect world or in some distant utopia when mankind is void of all avarice & greed we might do away with money altogether. In this instance we would not need that protection money currently provides us. Make no mistake, folks, we would be still paying each other with our production just to survive regardless, even in a perfect world without money. It is the act of GIVING to each other that keeps us alive in a mortal world. YES. its the act of paying is how we survive, with this in mind if you don’t pay is how some of us, or even many of us don’t survive.
If I may quote a wise prophet.
“The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”
