Many societies thrived before the use of money. They used barter.

Many religious orders (monks, nuns, etc.) do not use money within their world. Sure, they have to use money occasionally when interacting with the outside world, but that is usually handled by one person, so the rest can live without money, and with no need to think about money.

Picking the right parents and grandparents is a great way to succeed in the world.

See Prince Charles, who seems to be the product of many generations of inbreeding.

I would hardly call Prince Charles a success.

He is amazingly rich. He's been married to a really great woman. He is going to be King of all of Great Brittan and the relms of the world.

What a success.

You think because he is dumb and ugly that he is not?

Survival just needs air, water, food and a place to live.

Like for example these people: Hadza people, who apparently don't use money and hardly even care for property at all.

Living with parents - check
Cannot get a job - check / still makes mom work - check
Still waiting to be a king - check
Was married to an awesome woman - check
Chose to re-marry someone who looks like his mom's classmate - check (nothing personal against the lady, I just dont like her. In all fairness, she doesn't like me either )

What? A success? I think not.

Strictly speaking is Prince Charles a farmer's son. Her Majesty is a large agriculturist.

I could live on £473,000 a year in subsidies. I'd even not grow crops for that.

That kind of life style is difficult to follow for someone who loves books, computers, coding, learning etc.

In old ages, this was how people used to live. At that time as well, there was currency - which was not money - but different things like cattle, food etc.

Then problems started to when someone monopolized a specific commodity and refused to accept a specific currency. e.g. (just an example) - you want to buy a horse, there' only one person in the village who want to sell the horse. Now, that person would accept only few hundred pounds of rice, but you have only wheat. What are you gonna do? You will find a person who will accept your wheat and give you rice, and then you'll approach this horse vendor.

Here, a simple deal involved 3 person (instead of 2) and 2 currencies (instead of 1). That too, provided that the buyer finds that person - which was not always easy.

After some time, people started to feel that this currency thing should be uniform - at least across a large geographical area called as country/nation. And thus we started to live with money.

In today's time, chances are that that horse vendor would accept money (say currency specific to that country) and the wheat farmer can get money by selling wheat. Later on, the horse vendor can buy rice or whatever he/she wants with that money.

Of course, in one time, people used to live without electricity, without money, without clothes, without computers and internet, without telephones, without vehicles, and so on. And some of those things might be possible even today. But I do not think what would be benefit out of it.

I mean, say we can live without money today:
1) Why to do that?
2) What to do after that?

P.S. I love money

There are other communities like that in other places too. In today's world, they exist because they have been allowed to by the moneyed people. They are in no better position than several species that are on the verge of existinction and exist solely because they are allowed to...by the moneyed people. The time when you could live without money is long gone.

If you already have a farm, somebody already paid for it. You don't really "own" the land off which you plan to live. You need to pay property tax in money terms every year. They won't accept a bag of tomatoes or a few ears of corn

You can't live without money. Not possible.

Certain type of "crops" are sure to fetch you more than £473,000 a year!!!
