  • Money is Power but it needs to be respected by the one that has it.

    It's status.

    Yes is can be.

  • No, I have never understood this saying! Negativity is the root of all evil. Money can be a blessing, it doesn't have to be bad... Negativity, by nature, can't be good!

  • definitely not. character flaws and weaknesses are the root of all evil.

  • The LOVE of money, to the point of greed, lust, willingness to steal or kill....THAT is the root of some evil, but not all. Money can equal power in some minds, and there are people that are willing to do anything to have power.

  • No money is not the root of all evil. The love of money certainly can make many people act evil. There is much evil out there that has nothing to do with money. There is also alot of money out there used for good and not evil.
