    I definitely disagree.

    Is a sign we live in a very cynical age that more people are agreeing than disagreeing?

    Not necessarily in term of money or stuff, but if someone they love or their own body is threatened, I think there is some point that it is human nature to break. I'm not if that is what it what the OP was talking about or not. Not everyone cares about money.

    Leverage can be gained over anyone, as everyone has something they actually care about.

    Find that thing and exploit it, and bingo bango, you've got acquiescence. I think a better question for the OP and thread in general would be, what won't you do for money?

    Anyone would do anything to save those they care about, so that's kind of a separate thing from what would you do for money (favors, or whatever etc..)

    you still depend on the context - a price for what? yes - you could probably get parents to do anything if you threatened their children - but then that "anything" isn't then likely to include harming their own children. the same can be said to any other value - people who would do anything for their country wont have a price for harming their own country, etc.

    I disagree. Someone who has nothing to lose has everything to gain. Someone with nothing to gain has everything to lose. Assuming that these two positions apply to everyone, or something in the middle of the two apply to everyone, it would be an absolute statement. I think the people that can't be bought, monetarily or otherwise, are either those with a balanced perspective or those who just quite caring.

    For instance; a parent who doesn't care about their child, wouldn't do anything to harm them or to save them, they could remain neutral. Or someone who is suicidal and values nothing in life, be it because of depression, fear, et al... Wouldn't be easily bought because they've already given up.

    Another example would be something like people who subscribe to reincarnation or an ideal of an afterlife that holds them morally accountable for things done in this lifetime. They wouldn't be easily bought if something went against their belief system (and this topic denotes going against ones principles, as a person who has a neutral stance wouldn't be being bought, rather paid).

    Yes. And if something exceeds that price, you opt out.

    Agree. People are basically whores to something.
