How can it be a waste if it "is not a cost"?

So now allowing people to work as they want isn't "useful" in your fantasy?

How is where "time and resources that could be more useful" decided in your fantasy?

So now it is not "a waste of time and resources"? Do please let us know when you can at least agree with just yourself.

The problems you're trying to solve aren't problems of money. Taking money away won't solve those problems. In fact, if you take money away, but don't solve those problems, money will just come right back. Money will come back for the same reason it came up in the first place.

The good news is that if you solve those other problems, you won't need to take away money. If you solve those other problems, money will occupy its rightful place in the service of human society.
