When Money Makes The World Go Round

With apologies, I regrettably have to say that I find humans in aggregate to be extremely vain and shallow. Which is so odd given that they are so incredibly smart. Obviously, we humans suffer from a collective neurosis that has corrupted our ability to think rationally.
Idioms like 'money makes the world go round' are odd because there's an element of truth in them. There are several things that are true about this idiom, one being the observation that not only is money utilitarian, but (it seems) that our whole economic system could not exist without it. Obviously though, there must be an alternative to money and in a more enlightened age perhaps we'll find it. People of that age will see money as just as crude and cumbersome as we see barter now.
But what many miss because they take money for granted is the dangerous grandiosity of the notion that money spins the world. For we all know that money did not arise from the earth to rule over us: we invented money so that we could have a practical means of exchange for goods and services. But money seen in the metaphysical light means that is alive and can be used as a weapon or tool at the bearer's choosing. In the wrong hands money is black magic and can be used as pure power- power to use, enslave, or even to wage war.
On an everyday level, money has served us very well. We can go to the market, to the dentist, and buy a loved one flowers all with ease because of money. But money as a god is a frighteningly cruel master. Instead of making the world go round, it might just make it go poof.
