Thought 288: Carrots and Ali G

In an interview with a US diplomat, Ali G could not get his head round the expression 'carrot and stick' used by said diplomat to describe US policy towards foreign countries.  

When finally told that carrot in this instance meant money, Ali G exclaimed
"Yes, well, money is way better than carrots!"
Although true in the context of the monetary system, in a moral culture that has freed itself from the mind control methodology that is money, Ali G's exclamation would not be true.

For carrots are edible. Money is not. Carrots exist in nature. Money has never, does not and never will exist in nature. Carrots are real. Money is artificial. Carrots sustain life. Money destroys life.
