There wouldn't need to be a barter system if all the needs were taken care of, and precious metals are only valuable because people prize them. We use the abundant metals much more than gold or silver. There is no real reason to value precious metals. Life existed without them and can do the same again.

piperfawn: Don't be naive enough to believe there will be an end to money. Sure paper currency can collapse, but precious metals will always remain valuable and still be used, if all else fails.
You`ve bought into the false ideology of a `zero sum` game, where the rich can only get richer by taking from the poor and that`s just false.

No one is so crazy to pretend to reach perfection, we are just humans born with limits like our planets. Once we have stated that how we ruling the world lead us to destruction the most intelligent thing to do is to change and not to go further on repeating what is shown to be bad for us, also mices in laboratory learn that once you touch the red button and you take a shock instead of a cookie is better to not continue to touch the red button. Is just logic, the thing we are flaunting to be the supreme owners on this planet.
