Steemit is a frightening example on how money can corrupt our behavior and a mirror of modern society .
One who intends to gain money and influence will post only content he thinks others might like. He will upvote and post on higher ranking people in the hope for a reward. He will avoid writing about inconvenient topics and save his vote on posts he doesn't expect a reward from.
Then he will succeed, become rich and powerful.
One who posts about things painful to accept for others, supports the underdog with "low value upvotes" will remain unpopular, poor and without power.
If money becomes the driving force for our behavior, the truth will remain nothing but a theoretical concept and nothing of REAL value.
Only the pleasing portion of the truth will get attention and agreement.
The darker sides of it will remain in the dark.
