2. First of all, it's the "LOVE of money that's the root of all evil."

The thing is, wealth = power. And human nature being what it is, I don't see a way of eliminating the love of power from society.

Think about any encounter you've had with any kind of bureacrat. Someone who is acting as a gatekeeper of information/resources you need. Generally, more often that not, this person absolutely delights in making you wait and suffer, in your role as supplicant. They are in love with with whatever bit of petty power they are able to exercise.

Changing currency isn't going to change the love of having power over others. That's a totally whole 'nother thing.
