No, you have to admit that you don't want to work for free since you've already admitted that you work for money. There is only one hypocrite in this thread and it's you.

Wake up Gaetan. Plenty of people don't buy into the "Black Friday" nonsense.

All those people going insane over it are morons.

Personally, I earn enough that I don't have to consider it for anything.

When I bought my home, I fitted it out with the best of gear. For money. I didn't have to take loans for it either.

How did I get that money? I earned it. By working for money.

You are doing exactly the same. You have told us so.

If your system was implemented, you would not be posting here because there would be no internet anywhere. You would not have the things you want because they simply would not be available.

And again with making crap up. I don't do black Friday. Your credibility is already zero, why are you trying to make it a negative number?

How much does your employer overpay you?

Say the man preaching we shouldn't use money while he is, infact, using money. Despite the fact it is possible, and people are currently living like that, you won't. Because, well, that would be effort, right?

It seems you are a hypocrite. You want to work for free, but you admit that you don't.

If my neighbor helps me by working, I have no problem paying him a fair wage. Why do you have a problem with that?

Thank you for your admission to previously lying about it.

Now answer the parts of my post that you dishonestly cut out. Why are the religious so dishonest?

Gaetan is a hypocrite. He advocates for a no money world but he admits that he works for money. He claims he wants to work for free - but he doesn't.

I recently had some friends and neighbors help me paint my house. I paid them for their help and I paid them $25 an hour each. A pretty fair wage for a day's work helping a neighbor. We finished painting in one day. After painting, I also paid for pizza and beer. Fair enough for you Gaetan?

For reference, payscale.com says low market is 17/hour. Angies list says low market is 25/hour. I guess, depending on the pizza and beer, fair rate. Of course, that's contractor pay, so they would be paying the actual employees a bit less. And no pizza or beer.

People answering my post are all rich and live confortable that's why you fellows don't take a chance to get rid of money. Jesus said: ''you had your reward''

And yet Gaetan the hypocrite says that he still uses money. You have no credibility and nobody believes anything you say.

When you abolish all religion, including your own weird one, then MAYBE you'll have some credibility.

Why are you such a hypocrite Gaetan. You are either getting money for doing nothing, or you are getting money for work. According to what you believe, you are the biggest hypocrite around.

And Jesus did not say "You had your reward."

Please start practicing what you preach. If you listen to what Jesus said, you should have moved to the Holy Land. If you listen to what you say, you should have given away all your money, and not use it. You have a credit card, you use money.

Hypocrite. You didn't take YOUR chance to get rid of money. YOU admit you still use money.

Whether people are rich or not is not relevant. Someone who's rich can still use their money for good things are not for selfish things.

Where did Jesus say "you had your reward"?
