Let us now be a little more practical. Why is it that when you put money in the bank, you want to have more over time?
I know, unfortunately, that historically inflation has been damaging, and that it had to be compensated for. But if inflation is negative or zero,
do you find it normal to lose some of your capital? Certainly, it's not just inflation. We were brought up with the idea that money needs to earn a return.
If there is a possibility that our money will return, it would be foolish not to take advantage of it. Does that not make sense? Isn't that what you think?
It may make sense, but is that consistent with the golden rule?
I draw your attention to the fact that the bank also has customers to whom it lends money. And those customers have to give back more than they're loaned.
So there is an intermediary who organizes a system so that some people receive money without doing anything and others have to give it back without compensation.
This can also be said in the following form: some work for others, organized by a third party. Doesn't that sound like a triangular trade to you?
Do you enjoy having to work for free for the benefit of someone else? Is it decent to have a slave?
It would seem that the situation may make sense, but it violates the golden rule.
