We live in a world where we have to interact with it (money) on some scale, no matter how far we want to distance ourselves from the love of it. I believe that we should be starting to look at aspects of our society that can exist/perform/continue without money changing hands, physically or digitally. I don't mean that we should devolve our society to one that barters goods and services for the other but rather, you do something because you can not because it can earn you a crust or two.
Lets look at the big things, we, and many other countries produce more food than we can eat (for financial purposes) but there are many who are unable to do so for whatever reason. We should help them by giving them our surplus and the knowledge we used to create such a surplus. In return we hope, but not demand that they in turn will share some insight they have on something that benefits us all. Win win!
If there was no money we would not all of us have to work for ~40 hours a week (sometimes more) just to earn enough for our family to live. Instead we could be employed in bettering our selves, our neighbours and our world by working at what is actually necessary for our common goals. This might take 40+ hours a week or it may take 5 hours. However, we would all be filled with the satisfaction that our world was a better place for the work that we do as opposed to not being in debt and making an individual's wealth much greater today than it was yesterday.
Do away with money, provide a reason to work and I'm sure more people than do now would turn up for their few required hours a week and do a better job for the purpose of the betterment of humankind than anyone has ever done in the entire history of the modern world.
I'm trying to rebuild my css so that my site is responsive. Right now I'm at the very start, lots to do.
I've hit my first wall, I cannot find which property is causing my content to be the correct width for mobiles but the overall page to be twice as wide meaning users can inadvertently scroll sideways.
I've been trying to find a tool to help me highlight elements of the page (an aid to my search) but no luck so any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
