Exactly. People unjustly want "the benefits derived from work".

Keynesians covet so they need to demonize sound money and oppose liberty. Eventually both the covetous horde and the fiat slavers declare money itself to be evil, and they'll do it while trying to take everyone around them as slaves.

Ayn Rand: "Money is your means of survival. The verdict you pronounce upon the source of your livelihood is the verdict you pronounce upon your life. If the source is corrupt, you have damned your own existence. Did you get your money by fraud; by pandering to mans vices or mans stupidity, by catering to fools in the hope of getting more than your ability deserves, by lowering your standards, by doing work that you DESPISE for purchasers you SCORN?

If so, your money will not give you a moments or a pennies worth of joy; then all the things you buy will become not a tribute to you, but a reproach, not an achievement, but a reminder of shame. Then you'll scream: "Money is evil!" Evil, because it would not pinch hit for your self respect? Evil, because it would not let you enjoy your depravity?

Is this the root of your hatred of money?"
