    1. The way that Voltaire paints the “utopia” of El Dorado, a city lined with gold and riches, that the citizens don’t place any value on and instead focus on the pursuit of knowledge and peace, shows how money is a source of corruption and shouldn’t have true value.
    2. After Candide gets robbed by Vanderendeur, Candide renounces his optimism after coming to terms with the greed and corruptibility of man who robbed him.
    3. Chapter 5 on Locke’s “Second Treatise of Government” states that money has infinite value because it doesn’t have a short life-span in comparison to resources like clothing, food, etc. If you can monetize your labor and resources, then it has imperishable value.
