I have really enjoyed your blog over the past semester and especially liked your discussion of Les Murray’s poem this week. I completely agree with you that we have willingly given money control of our lives. Your discussion of this in the final paragraph was particularly interesting especially the statement that it has taken control of all aspects of our life whether it be religious, ideologically or creatively. A possible disagreement however, lies within the title of your post, the popular saying, “money is the root of all evil”. I feel that because, as you have stated, we so willingly give ourselves to money, that it is not to blame for our actions. Are we not more responsible for giving it the power to control us? This may be an interesting thought to further explore.
Best wishes, Tamara 🙂
