Money: It can buy you happiness?...
A MOC that makes you think about money...
About this creation
This is an extremely simple MOC however it has a lot of thought behind it. The MOC itself tackles the human races never-ending need for wealth. Do we need it? Look and interperet my MOC and perhaps your mind will change.

The creation is of a dead pirate/person that died of starvation after being stranded on a desert island. Yet all around he is surrounded by wonderful treasure; gold, silver, jewels...Money can buy happiness eh??? He had all of the money he could want yet it did not save his life. Think about it do we as humans really need money??

Anyway i hope you like the idea and the set-up.

well, sir, this isnt a very good example, because what would he do with all that money in the desert? it should have been near civilization, then he would have a use for the money and i NEED money, it can buy MORE LEGOS!!

Yea money cant buy hapiness but it can make your arss confey being depressed LOL, But money can get you hapiness at a extent, when your in a civilisation it makes you happy but when your in a unknown small island then you would give every cent to live.

Hello once again! I like this very much. It has a very good message I feel all of us can benefit from. Although to me he looks more like a dead spaniard than a pirate :P. But the spaniards killed many native peoples in their quest for riches, so it applies very well anyway. A little known fact is that Christopher Columbus enslaved natives in Central America in order to obtain gold for Spain. He would impose drastic, and horrible punishments for those who were unable to meet their quota. Greed can turn anyone into a barbarian, so it is important to avoid it, and seek quality in life through experience, and not through non-perminant material possessions. I side with the buddhists! They state that life is suffering, and that suffering is caused by desire. If you do not desire, then your mind is free (this is very summarized). You must seek happiness from within yourself. I very much hope to see a day where greed is no longer one of our species' defining characteristics. I very much truly do.
