Once again, SD, you've hit it right out of the park. You have a gift of making highly complex subjects so very understandable and digestible. Thank you for that! Also, if you haven't read it yet, I highly recommend Yuval Noah Harari's best-seller, "Sapiens." There's a section inside about money and myths. He says money only has value as long as people BELIEVE in it... The same is true for government. So many things we take for granted are myths, according to him! LMK if you read this book! Also, his next one, "Homo Deus." Cheers!
