Botswana has the pula. Burma has the kyat. Mexico has the peso. There are an amazing variety of names for money. What would you call the currency if you had your own country?
Would I love to have my own country! No one can tell me what to do. I’d tell people what to do. It’d be great.
But, anyway, if I had my own country, I’d call the currency liberti. It would be a constant reminder to me that there’s nothing more important than liberty. Every time I’d look at the currency I’d be reminded about liberty. And if, I forgot, the coins would bring me back to reality. I mean, that’s a lot of power owning my own country. I’d probably get carried away with all the power. I’ve never seen anyone not be seduced by the power given them. I see it every time a politician gets elected to office. He begins by doing what he feels is right, but pretty soon, he becomes one of the group. The group, in turn, makes him one of them. No longer does he do what he feels is right. He goes along with the group. If he thinks outside the box, he’ll lose his group.
So Liberti would be the name of my country’s currency.
Oh, to own my own country (sigh).
