    Why a man has gone two decades without money...

    Why a man has gone two decades without money...


    For those of us who struggle to make ends meet or who are disorganized or negligent with personal finances, or who canít seem to ever create a cushion for unexpected expenses, the idea of doing away with money might seem spectacularly appealing. We all know financial problems can wreak havoc, leading to health-compromising stress, divorce, homelessness. Who but the wealthy hasnít had to rack their brain to figure out how to bring in more money?


    But what if instead of always trying to figure out how to get more money, you could figure out how not to need it? What if it were possible to sever your dependence on it? To banish it completely from your life?


    For most of us, such questions would remain a thought experiment absent a major reorganization of civilization and the global economy. But, motivated by reasons more pure than stress relief, Johnston ditched money almost two decades ago, and he says thereís no going back.


    Hereís one story

    If you take a free cup of coffee or food then you are indirectly taking money from the person that provided it.

    I don't get why he either throws away money or, destroys it........he said, "before kids can see it"?
