Someone once said ‘A paper cut is a tree’s final revenge.’ And every time I hear someone say that, I laugh inside. A papercut is one of the most painful things ever, don’t get me wrong. But that is not the tree’s real revenge. A tree’s real revenge is so much deeper than a paper cut.
A tree’s real revenge is the paper it creates: money.
Einstein once said the economic anarchy of capitalism is the real source of evil. And how right he was. Money brings people to do things that they would not have ever done in a million years. People sell out their best friends and family for money. There’s a young girl somewhere in the world right now selling her body for money because that’s the only way she can support herself. Wars have started over money. Relationships have died over money. It tears apart who you truly are and turns you into someone you never thought or wanted to be. So when you find yourself doing something out of character to make a quick buck, remember, that’s a tree’s last revenge."
