All that, just to be free of money? Sure. But that's like saying, "If we all lived in communities no larger than 100 we wouldn't need language, agriculture, or civilization." Jesus was a one-percenter, a personality at least six sigmas from the norm. He had no discernable ego, and that's just the top of the list of the ways in which he was very much unlike most of the rest of us in some really fundamental ways. Asking us to live like Jesus is asking us to renounce many of the defining characteristics of what makes us human beings. Buddha asks us to look inside ourselves and examine those traits, and then for each of us to use our immense human intellect to devise a way that works for each of us individually to integrate those traits into a civilized whole that can coexist more or less harmoniously with others who are trying their hardest to do the same thing. The Dao teaches us to identify the positive and negative aspects of each of those traits and assemble them into a dynamic equilibrium that provides the energy for a life that stays more or less in balance with the other lives around us. Jung tells us to not be ashamed of those traits, but to domesticate them and give them each the opportunity to guide us through situations in which they can be exercised to the benefit of the entire community, for each of us to recognize our most dominant traits and find a path through life on which those traits can be put to productive use, and to let the others come out to play once in a while, in situations where they will do no harm. Jesus, Moses, and Mohammed want us to label many of our most basic characteristics "evil," spend our whole lives trying to repress them, and grovel for forgiveness when one of them asserts itself in frustration like a condemned prisoner who dares to attempt an escape. So please excuse me if, for all of its faults, I tolerate money with far more patience than the Abrahamic religions.
