In the News "Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon, died Saturday, weeks after heart surgery and days after his 82nd birthday on Aug. 5. Armstrong commanded the Apollo 11 spacecraft that landed on the moon on July 20, 1969, and he radioed back to Earth the historic news of 'one giant leap for mankind'. He spent nearly three hours walking on the moon with fellow astronaut Edwin 'Buzz' Aldrin." Our thoughts are with his family and friends. Such a great man. The world lost a true legendary hero today. This man will be an inspiration for generations to come.

Just think about it how insane money is. Money doesn't exist, we made it up and then we spend our lives acquiring it,

Money is a measurement of scarcity of resources, and a way to reward effort. Its no small coincidence that the nation with the most money (the nation that was born on the idea that wealth is created, not a zero-sum game) is also the only nation that has put a man on the moon.

killing others for it

The first man on the moon rose to his position by dropping bombs on Koreans as a 20 year old pilot. I'm not saying this detracts from his later accomplishments at all, only that the world isn't as cut-dry black and white, good and bad as you make it.
