Why would you build a house out of 1.4 BILLION shredded Euros, you ask? Simple. To prove a point. Money is just worthless paper. Worthless paper is what people are committing suicide over, hurting and killing other human beings over, and ruthlessly abusing one another for. It’s pathetic, and it’s disgusting. It needs to stop.
People need to wake up and realize that governments and banks manipulate people with this worthless paper to get them to do their bidding, all in exchange for another little pile of worthless paper.
So it was with that idea in mind that Frank Buckley, of Ireland set out to build his billion Euro home. He built it out of decommissioned Euro bills, so these particular bills aren’t actually legal tender right now. He still had to get a permit to build it, but figured it would be worth it to make a statement. The home is constructed inside of a nice but abandoned office building that was vacated during the recession.
Frank says he was driven to build this project after watching his friend commit suicide after losing so much in the recession, and after seeing the bank terrorize his wife and kids over a measly $6000 Euro loan that he they were unable to repay due to financial strain caused by that same bank and many others during the recession. He says it absolutely disgusted him that a bank would take the roof off of his wife and kid’s head and steal all of their furniture and vehicles all in the name of greed and a little bit of money – gross injustice and abuse, committed in the name of worthless colored paper.
