The onion is a satire magazine. It's a joke.

Read the cover page...it's actually pretty funny.

Funny...

and great that the meme of illusory money is being propagated

satire is a great way to explore truth in a status quo world

Now, all joke aside, there was an exhibition at the Tate Gallery
about this and a book written too

http://www.tate.org.uk/modern/exhibitions/capital.htm

http://www.chanceprojects.com/node/71

I went to the semminar and one of the questions I put to the panelists was exactly that, is money real? and the answer was similar to that of the onion

Money is just an illussion supported by us, we could be giving value to shells like the Mochica in Peru did or to nut shells?

Love

That joke is about to manifest into our reality.

Yes it is a joke. However, the joke is on the world. Those here have awaken to the illusion.

I like to think that money is a common agreement between us that we won't use brute force upon each other in order to survive.
