Every person on the face of this planet should immediately receive access to free health care – all medications should be paid for and no treatment would be refused.

The way we teach ourselves should be restructured so it’s not only mandatory and socially regulated, but enjoyable, meaningful... and eventually fulfilling. (Always fluid and current.)

We should immediately develop a vastly improved public transportation grid that maximizes clean energy and effectively provides reliable and swift service for absolutely free.

We should realize that money is nothing more than a human construct. We made it up and are perfectly capable of creating an alternative score keeper.

There should be a newly implemented mandate that every corporation and government around the globe should operate their business with full transparency.

Smarter and generally more decent people should be running our planet instead of the greedy evil and stupid people who currently hold the position.

There needs to be more relevant and frequent access to the important and immediate decision in our democracy. Current systems do not accurately represent the will of the people, we can do better.

We humans should terminate every broken, pathetic, oppressive, capitalistic, petty, obnoxious political and religious system we have infected our species with.

We should start an aggressive retraining and reintegration program for the billions of people in the world who will now find their current jobs are counter-productive to our eventual survival (or at least our relatively opulent comfort) and instead focus on a new collaborative global harvesting and sustainable extraction of the natural resources we have access to.

How about we make environmental restoration a priority?

I know - let's find a way to effectively harness the collective intelligence of our ever growing social consciousness and simply think our way out of this gigantic mess we have made around the planet.

(Facebook comes close, but it would need to be more refined and intellectually curated.)

Be happy... be honest, be nice, share, forgive, floss, and always tell the people you love that you love them.

Stop smoking cigarettes so often. (It's gross.)

... or at the very least it should be a treat - not something that is done habitually. That is just weak and at least most of you who do it are better than that.

What about you?

Whatcha got?

I see your point Caulaincourt. I don't know how to put this any other way than to say "it's just the internet". It's not like he's deadlocked with the most brilliant political minds here. He's just expressing himself the way that he would like to. So what if he jumps into a fantasy role for bit of his life? So what if he thinks that his world would be a good world? He's not hurting anybody by questing for change and he's certainly not calling out specific individuals every chance he gets so that he can deflate his e-bubble. That sounds more of what your talking about than what he is.


Wait, wait, wait....he sometimes does get in e fights with people but those people usually really deserve it.


He just wants to see people happy and I happen to think that is a brilliant thing.

I've been giving this some serious thought.

Obviously it's the transition the the berg benevolent dictatorship (bbd) that's going to be the tough part.

What we need to harness, obviously, is the untapped voting power of da youf. Since we all know that da youf of america are gormless and obsessed with pop culture, we need to use that to our advantage.

The upcoming 2012 election presents the perfect opportunity for major change.

Now here's where I've done the real brainstorming. Perkman is going to have to suck it up and excel in pre-med because we'll need someone to implant the control chips into the brains of the celebrities that we choose to send to the seats of the highest authority. I'm not 100% on how this all would work, but I think there are at least a few programmers on here. I'll leave that up to them.

I'm pretty sure that our MIA, Cali-based, handsome, with a winning personality, self-published internet famous author Jack McCallum could easily infiltrate the inner circles of the celebrities in question, so that's sorted.

Once the bbd agents President Sheen, and VP Gaga are in place, and it starts getting a little fuzzy here as it seems that there are only 33 senate seats that are up for reelection in 2012 and therefore available for our zombie-celebs, that appointing various übersite agents into cabinet posts that require senate approval might prove troublesome. More brain control chips, I guess.

In any event, I think it's a great start.

Rob - I never called you boring. I implied that you weren't witty. I wouldn't say you're boring. It's kind of interesting how such an uninteresting and low IQ individual with limited vocabulary like yourself is convinced of his wisdom and eloquence...if that makes any sense.

Poots - all right. Still, setting unrealistic goals to purposedly set yourself up for failure and justify inaction is common. That is what Rob does. "Let's change the world!" Then he goes back to being completly ordinary like everyone else and doing fuck all. I'm sure I'm ten times more involved in my community than this moron is. Rob seems to think his ideas will suddendly catch up and go viral. As if his ideas are novel...these are what most NPO's push for.

Rob is the embodiement of why things never change. Most people like to give themselves a good conscience but they are fine with statu quo.

Fine, you never called me boring.

I have many limitations, but vocabulary is not really considered one of them.

The fact that you find me so 'uninteresting' is questionable, considering I'm pretty sure that you have reviewed my posts more than any other user on this site.

I am rather wise and can be quite eloquent at times. Your inability/unwillingness to appreciate that is not surprising nor is it even all that bothersome.

I have not set any goals to fail at... I just think we should change the world. So do you - but instead of being collaborative or thoughtful - you'd rather take the time to attack and belittle the fact I am taking the time to state the obvious.

Only in this case, the fact our failures are so obvious we are able to ignore them and focus on our tiny manufactured existences.

Your level of participation in the community is great... I do what I can but we can always do more, but doing more in this broken environment is counter productive.

I certainly don't have all the answers - but I do have ideas - lots of ideas and they ain't doing anybody any good in my own brain. If other people read those ideas and are inspired to think laterally and come up with their own ideas that are better and more implementable then I couldn't possibly hope for anything more... in the short term it makes me feel good to get them out there and reflect on them.

You just like being a dink.

We are losing the potato war. On cost. The money we pay on importing potatoes does not balance with the money we spend on exporting and consuming our own freshly grown potatoes.


We send our potatoes to the rest of the world that are really good but we take in shit country potatoes that aren't so good. We lose all kinds of money in the process. If we could consume our own potatoes we'd save the country millions of dollars.


That's not our decision to make and god knows who set that awful deal up.

We do it because economically it makes sense to have Mexican Farmers grow our food at a fraction of the cost.

...but how is that purporting the notion that all people are created equal?

Farming across the entire planet should compensate the workers with the same amount of equity - with some variation based on expertise needed to harvest a particular crop or to manage production.

Growing food is one of the absolute most important occupations we have as a species... and considering we have almost 7 billion people on the planet, mass production of that food is required. We already have a bunch of systems in place to provide that sustenance - but it is inefficient and profit driven instead of being optimized and standardized as an essential service.

I agree with you my dear Poots - the weening of Cash will have to be relatively slow... and I think to be fair there should be some legacy wealth that remains in the new society to compensate those who have accumulated substantial wealth in this one - just proportional to what everyone else starts with.

Coop is an awesome idea.

We have a neighbourhood grocer who operates like a farmers market - she only gets food from either local farms - or produce that is picked and shipped a 5 hour drive away.

The quality and taste of that food is outstanding and where we do most of our shopping... the rest we go to Whole Foods. Sure it costs more, but there is something to be said about filling your body with the right kind of food.

Sure, we still go to the big box grocers for things like garbage bags and ziplock containers - and the local Safeway makes the BEST ciabatta loaf.

I think the key is to eat local... the need for profit has lead to the mass production of food which reduces quality and nutritional value. Even if we started with that - we already subsidize farmers as it is so it's not a stretch to dramatically re-work that system.

I don't think we choose bleak as much as it is force fed to us by the some entity or another....I'm not getting into that. But we drone on in our comfy nests and watch whatever is able to be watched and not what we want. Twists us up. We are trapped in a revolving door of fatty foods that make us lethargic and lazy and oppression from all sorts of avenues.

Bullies win in this country. The squeaky wheel gets the grease? I say the squeaky wheel gets replaced. Especially if you grease that mother fucker until it's dripping with grease and it still squeaks. But bullies get what they want by being intimidating because that's what works. Bully you into being quite so you don't get what you want. You want an uprising? Well, someone will find some way to fuck it up for everyone. It's got to be quick. It's got to happen now. Swift one slice of the sword...check fucking mate!

Slowly, is good too. but don't seem like you don't want it. Don't sit at your computer and think about it happening. MAKE IT HAPPEN!

Cash rules though man.


For every enlightened one you turn the rich can buy thousands.


So it's a risky game. Give up your money? People just won't have that. So maybe slow is better. Slowly ween the society off of money.


I'm going to start out by going to all the small towns in Kentucky and I'm going to encourage them all to start a commune and a local co-op. I feel like that is something that this country is missing. A little respect for our own countrymen. Community togetherness too. If it could be encouraged and people were made to feel like there was an incentive to live with the communities better interests in mind I bet the crime would decrease. Now, there is always going to be one that wants to fuck everything up. I say give them the poop camera. Just poop all over their faces and make them suffer that fate in total view of all public willing to watch.

I would love for the person that stole 500 dollars from me to get pooped on in public. I would totally watch that event and make fun of them for getting pooped on. Hell, I may even give them the chance to take 500 more.



I agree with you Rob. Anything is possible as long as the right minds concentrate the proper amount of energy on getting the task done.

My parents gave me zilcho info about sex so I had to cobble together observations and conversations had with friends that knew almost as much as I did. When I produced spawn, I did not make that same mistake. Of course, it was insanely funny to show the guppies how to use a condom using a screwdriver handle and a glow in the dark piece of latex. I recall holding it aloft, like the Statue of Puberty, when my other walked through the door. That still makes me giggle.

That is awesome - proving that even in your limited capacity for social evolution you managed to identify an obvious deficiency in education and instead of just shrugging your proverbial shoulders and letting the status remain OH so quo - you made a change that positively impacted the lives of your children.

What I am suggesting is not really much different - just vastly more unrealistic based on the global status quo - but no less necessary.

DaBeast replied with:

This is just categorically untrue.

Why does there have to be a shortage of essential building blocks to the success of our species?

(Just in case you need a little help: The answer is there doesn't have to be, of course, we fabricate that shortage to perpetuate a broken, evil system.)

I can appreciate there being a shortage of art or literature or even food delicacies - as I suggested the free market would need to be leverages to provide us with the proper incentive to remain innovative and reward qualities like passion, creativity and dedication.

I am not talking about the banishment of greed - we are inherently greedy motherfuckers. We are also lazy, petty and selfish by nature - which is why we have made some pretty important advancements as a society - but somehow, along the way, our perception has been polluted by capitalism. The notion of equality should extend far beyond mere words and be practically implemented across the globe - as you have clearly indicated, this notion of specific societal entitlement saturates our western civilization. Inexplicably those of us who are economically more privileged than the vast majority of the world feel that is perfectly OK.

Even though we know it's not. Not really.

I also think we are stupid down to our DNA - but unlike you I believe that can change if we let it.

---
DaBeast replied with:

Again, we can't change what we are... (had to take this out as well.)

---

You are right - and we would still need to have the military and law enforcement agencies in place - but they should be far more altruistic and transparent bastions of justice and discipline - instead of the secretive corrupt, inefficient and largely underfunded organizations they are now.

We humans are generally a foul species to be sure - but we also have the capacity for beauty if provided the right environment. So my logic - however fantastical it might be - would be to create that environment, properly police it, and let our civilization thrive in the areas that are really important instead of all the shit that we wallow in currently.

Also - you are quoting a movie, and as much as that might make sense based on the way the world is currently set up - if you are so willing to embrace that kind of negative fantasy - why does your mind recoil at the possibility of creating an infinitely more positive one?

---
DaBeast replied with:

There is no such thing as 'crazy enough to work'. There are the hopeless ones - the romantics, the dreamers, the poets, and the fools - and then there's the realists. It isn't that I do not like your dream. It is a pretty one. It is that I have looked into the heart of the monster that is human and I see the rot at its very core. Eventually, that rot will consume us all.

And there is nothing that any of us can do about it.

Bleak, yes. Such is reality.

---

Sure there is.

See, I AM a realist - in that I understand perfectly the way the world works now. Where I have the latitude to dream is in our species consciously deciding to create a better existence for ourselves. When 99% of the world would be better off if we implemented the ideas found above - and only 1% would stand to have their relative luxury reduced it's the perfect set up for a revolution.

Just sayin'.

There is everything we can do about it... we just need to decide it's important and then execute.

We make our own reality, and inexplicably we currently choose bleak - which I think is stupid.

Mrs.Berg, your son's performance in school is taking a concerning turn for the worse.

He is currently failing Mathematics, and his Science grade isn't far behind. Despite your son's great willingness to play well with others, he has shown an outright refusal to actually participate in Physical Education, leaving him with an Incomplete grade which will need to be retaken this summer. His History and Geography scores are at middle C's, and his English grade (A-) is the only thing keeping his grade point average above a 2.0, and every one of his teachers has caught him drawing either in one of his notebooks during lectures, or in the edges of the books directly. Making markings in the textbooks was clearly prohibited in the student contract which you signed, and you will have to pay for the book to be replaced in order for his grades to be processed towards the next grade level, assuming he passes the course.

Please work with your son on improving these issues.

---

I'm sure you felt that was a lot funnier than it turned out. For what it's worth, it was the reverse of that in school, which I categorically hated.

I did do a lot of drawing in school - but never in text books, instead it was the back pages of the few notes I bothered taking and the occasional desk.

I remember a time when you were interesting and fun. Shame, that.

Mrs.Berg, your son's performance in school is taking a concerning turn for the worse.

He is currently failing Mathematics, and his Science grade isn't far behind. Despite your son's great willingness to play well with others, he has shown an outright refusal to actually participate in Physical Education, leaving him with an Incomplete grade which will need to be retaken this summer. His History and Geography scores are at middle C's, and his English grade (A-) is the only thing keeping his grade point average above a 2.0, and every one of his teachers has caught him drawing either in one of his notebooks during lectures, or in the edges of the books directly. Making markings in the textbooks was clearly prohibited in the student contract which you signed, and you will have to pay for the book to be replaced in order for his grades to be processed towards the next grade level, assuming he passes the course.

Please work with your son on improving these issues.

Beast: RE your hunger/well fed or heads/tails theory. I must dispute this. Please refer to basic world economics and Bill Hicks. If people were less selfish (as individuals and as nations) the world would be well fed, relatively decently paid, have a good education and generally be better off. Leaving us to then explore space together. In peace!

Rob Berg sez:
Or... parents could simply be properly educated on such things as sex and sexuality and the stigma that exists about having such discussions will disappear so discussions could be had without any of this embarrassment your folks obviously had on the subject.

---

My parents gave me zilcho info about sex so I had to cobble together observations and conversations had with friends that knew almost as much as I did. When I produced spawn, I did not make that same mistake. Of course, it was insanely funny to show the guppies how to use a condom using a screwdriver handle and a glow in the dark piece of latex. I recall holding it aloft, like the Statue of Puberty, when my other walked through the door. That still makes me giggle.

---

Rob Berg sez:
Raibows, unicorns and fairies are already magically delicious, silly.

---

That lucky charms guy is gonna be pissed.

---

Rob Berg sez:
I don't think it's such an unreasonable idea that the entire world have ready access to food - at least the kind that fulfills all of the nutritional requirements needed to grow and thrive in their own particular environments. If that includes a chicken in every pot, then so be it - my guess is the true sustainability of such a thing would be impossible - but certainly an adequate substitute in every human's individual food chain is something that would at least be considered an important and worthy goal - wouldn't it?

---

Won't happen. For every surplus, there must be a shortage. For every heads, there must be a tails. For every bellyful of burger, there must be a gut starved and emaciated. I recall mom telling me to appreciate my food because there were kids starving in China or Africa or some other place I'd never been. For so long as we put ourselves ahead of our fellow human, we will continue to deprive those others. You're talking about the abolishment of greed and how can you destroy an intrinsic, integral portion of your own psyche? We are the haves. They are the have nots. We can't even spare a quarter or a glance or a care for the homeless guy living on the stoop across the street. How do you expect us to be able to spare enough emotion to even give a fuck about those that we don't see every day when we can't do the same for those that are around us all the time? It's fantasy. While fantasy is nice, it is not, nor can it ever be, reality. We can not change what we are because we don't wanna. Anyone that tells you different is trying to get into your wallet for the sole purpose of bettering their own lot. We are selfish and stupid all the way down to the DNA. That will never change.

---

Rob Berg sez:
Is world peace such a terrible thing to comprehend? I mean war is stupid - conflicts are typically the result of ignorance and greed - if you mitigated those factors the world would be filled with something approximating peace. Sure it would still be filled with cunts who just enjoy conflict - but you will notice at no point do I advocate abolishing such things as the military and law enforcement. We human types are selfish, fickle, greedy little creatures - but I'd like to think that if placed in the right environment (and monitored appropriately) we'd be able to channel all that energy we currently spend on petty struggles to something a little more productive.

---

Again, we can't change what we are. Would we fight wars if we did not want to? Yes, there are those that don't want to - you will notice that those people do not fight. Then there's the rest of us primitive bastards. We are not a peaceful species. It isn't in our DNA. You can't mitigate those factors that swirl inside the double helix. Perhaps, someday, we will change them - and, on that day, our species will begin to die. Without conflict, without agression, without passion, we are void and empty - we need these things in order to feel alive. Stockbrokers fight one another for the bid, car salesmen fight one another for the next customer, soldiers fight the enemy that their leaders point them toward and none ask the reason why - they just do what feels right or what they're told. Think back to the 'Matrix' movies - recall when Neo was told about the Eden that humankind was originally given and their responses to it - that's human nature. We can not comprehend Eden even though there is a portion of our soul that yearns for that very thing. When you are given everything you've ever wanted... what more is there for you? Without strife, without conflict, without something against which to strain and a goal in our eye, we wither inside ourselves until there is nothing left.

---

Rob Berg sez:
I could very well be insane by your indoctrinated standards... but my ideas might just be crazy enough to work.

---

There is no such thing as 'crazy enough to work'. There are the hopeless ones - the romantics, the dreamers, the poets, and the fools - and then there's the realists. It isn't that I do not like your dream. It is a pretty one. It is that I have looked into the heart of the monster that is human and I see the rot at its very core. Eventually, that rot will consume us all.

And there is nothing that any of us can do about it.

Bleak, yes. Such is reality.

Our current way of life exploits the majority of the world. There is no petty partisan spin on that fact.
*** Not our fault the rest of the world is so exploitable. Maybe if they had a little revolution, took a peek at our constitution, set up a less restrictive government, maybe they'd prosper a bit more... who knows.

360 million people - roughly 10% of the US population lives below the poverty line and I would wager every one of them would refute your asinine claim that America is the leader in living standards.
*** And I'd wager they're a bunch of idiots with flat screen TV's, cell phones, and homes with electricity, receiving checks from the government. But they're stupid enough to consider themselves "below poverty level".

Our current civilization is a disgusting display of abject greed and manipulation - I'm selfishly happy that I am at the top end of the sliding scale... but that doesn't make it right.
*** So why don't you lead by example? Put your money where your mouth is? Give away all your wealth to the poor? No? That's what I thought.

Thank you, and have a nice day.

The world is like a ride at an amusement park. And when you choose to go on it, you think that it's real because that's how powerful our minds are. And the ride goes up and down and round and round. It has thrills and chills, and it's very brightly coloured, and it's very loud and it's fun, for a while. Some people have been on the ride for a long time, and they begin to question - is this real, or is this just a ride? And other people have remembered, and they come back to us. They say 'Hey! Don't worry, don't be afraid, ever, because, this is just a ride.' And we...kill those people. Ha ha ha. 'Shut him up! We have a lot invested in this ride. SHUT HIM UP! Look at my furrows of worry. Look at my big bank account and family. This just has to be real.' It's just a ride. But we always kill those good guys who try and tell us that, you ever notice that? And let the demons run amok. But it doesn't matter because: it's just a ride. And we can change it anytime we want. It's only a choice. No effort, no work, no job, no savings, and money. A choice, right now, between fear and love. The eyes of fear want you to put bigger locks on your doors, buy guns, close yourselves off. The eyes of love, instead, see all of us as one. Here's what you can do to change the world, right now, to a better ride. Take all that money that we spend on weapons and defence each year, and instead spend it feeding, clothing and educating the poor of the world, which it would many times over, not one human being excluded, and we could explore space, together, both inner and outer, for ever, in peace.

The UN Human Development Index (HDI) is a comparative measure of poverty, literacy, education, life expectancy, childbirth, and other factors for countries worldwide. It is a standard means of measuring well-being, especially child welfare.

1. Norway
2. Iceland
3. Australia
4. Luxembourg
5. Canada
6. Sweden
7. Switzerland
8. Ireland
9. Belgium
10. United States

I guess by American math, 10th place is number one in quality of life.

No not really.

Some friends of mine took me on a wine tasting tour in the Okanagan that was actually pretty fun, but despite said fun-erm...ness, I still think the whole thing is a bit much. My humble opinion only. Swirl and sniff...look at the residue on the glass...

Most of my friends are wine swilling flunkies.

What I got:

Wine tasting is overrated.

Most people could take better care of their pets. I know a girl who actually THREW HER PET HEDGEHOG INTO THE TRASH because she felt it was evil and unsociable. Fuck me.

Animals in general, even the tasty ones, should be treated better. Recently here, a large hole was dug and 150,000 pigs were herded into it where they were buried alive due to foot in mouth disease. This was done because it was the most cost effective solution. I understand the need to exterminate the animals but fucking christ are bullets really that expensive?

BC road workers should pull their thumbs out of their asses and actually do something productive, because every time I see a road crew in BC, there are always 5 guys standing there watching and pointing and offering advice to a 6th guy while he does something with a shovel. It's like the guy who stands there and comments on the other guys meat cooking prowess at barbecues. Oh yeah...that looks nice. Yeah flip and baste that shit...yeah.

I love tasting wine... which is something that only recently became awesome. For the longest time I only knew wine came in red, white and sometimes pink - but my Father-in-law exposed me to the wonderful world of the grape and I have enjoyed it immensely.

Well let's see, there's this thing called the US constitution which led to the creation of the United States of America which has been the world's leader in technology, military, and living standards....
It's right there. We've already got it. This post was written by a retard, and anyone thinking there's any "good ideas" in here are even dumber than you are. Facts of life.

I can tear so many holes in this, but I'll just start with beatings for the stupid.... Who decides when someone is stupid? What type of beating is administered? How do people get to be the decision makers of who is stupid? How do you define stupid? Would there be a court of law determining if said person is stupid, or is just experiencing a temporary condition of stupid? etc.

---

psst...

You would be one of them folks on the working end of a sound beating. Just so we are clear.

now, you can bluster about "tearing holes" into ideas geared simply to make the word a completely different, but empirically superior place for billions of people.

Our current way of life exploits the majority of the world. There is no petty partisan spin on that fact.

360 million people - roughly 10% of the US population lives below the poverty line and I would wager every one of them would refute your asinine claim that America is the leader in living standards.

>sigh<

...talking at you has historically proved painful and boring so I might regret engaging you - but I think your suggestion of a court ruling could work - but the tremendous amount of idiots infecting this world would potentially overwhelm the courts so I think there would have to be a certain amount of latitude given to special law enforcement officers to curtail some of the more common occurrences.

Truth be told, I would prefer some kind of 'science fiction' solution to the whole beating suggestion - as the logistics of actually administering a worthy beating would be daunting and accidents would inevitably occur... so if we eventually developed the ability to enter into a person's dream state and provide a vicious virtual beating - which would have all the lasting psycological impact of a regular beating - including the immediate and overwhelming pain of getting one - that would prove an adequate deterrent/incentive for people to smarten the fuck up.

Well let's see, there's this thing called the US constitution which led to the creation of the United States of America which has been the world's leader in technology, military, and living standards....
It's right there. We've already got it. This post was written by a retard, and anyone thinking there's any "good ideas" in here are even dumber than you are. Facts of life.

I can tear so many holes in this, but I'll just start with beatings for the stupid.... Who decides when someone is stupid? What type of beating is administered? How do people get to be the decision makers of who is stupid? How do you define stupid? Would there be a court of law determining if said person is stupid, or is just experiencing a temporary condition of stupid? etc.

I am always open to hear intelligently presented convergent opinions and am prone to change my mind instantly if it makes sense.

I'm quick to admit I am wrong - but I rarely am.

Also I am generally quite pleased to be proven wrong because that means I learned something - and that is usually a good thing.

Sure, I'd venture to say the vast majority of what I type into this limited dialogue box is something I believe in.

I'm realistic enough to know that a lot of it doesn't resonate with everyone who follows along, but that is immaterial. I enjoy throwing it out there and certainly enjoy the exchange with both the people that get it and who don't.

No, you are right.

Evil and smart are both relatively defined variables that can be independently applied to a certain demographic of people... just the same as Good and Smart are.

These are not mutually exclusive, but they do serve to identify quantifiable behavior for the simple purpose of making generalized digital statements on irrelevant internet forums.

Still, the observations based on those limited attributes, remain perfectly relevant.

I'm not sure how well public transportation would go over in the midwest. In the metropolitan areas it may work, but there are hundreds of relatively small commuter towns up to 80 miles away. Believe they currently run buses from regular points along 35 and 94.

I'm not sure how easily you're going to get any of that done. Unions, politicians, Hamas, the Vatican, the Bible Belt, evil dictators everywhere, business tycoons and all of Scientology would paint your merry band as the bogeyman. You'd have an easier time harnessing the indigenous ignorance and corruption in your rise to power, then setting up a benevolent North American dictatorship through which you could do many of these highly productive things.

You'd likely go Napoleon in your lust for power, however, set yourself up as Emperor and end up slaughtering Spanish civilians in one of the worst PR moves in your career. Britain would then lead an alliance to defeat you, likely exiling you in a reality TV stunt to some island off Nova Scotia. This would eventually lead to your (or at least your career's) death as you fade from Galactic Emperor to D-List celebrity, but it would ALSO lead to Britain becoming an Empire again, which I am all for.

Excellent question, Bob.

That is currently the limitation of any altruism that the good people of this planet try and muster up these days isn't it?

I think it's a sad reflection of how docile and gullible we have become to allow such a finite construct like money dictate our capacity to create a world where everyone shares a vastly improved level of comfort, safety and happiness.

It's also amazing to me how such notions are so easily marginalized and dismissed because our belief in holy power of cash is so absolute. FUCKING HIPPIES/LIBERALS/PROGRESSIVES/etc.

Still, I guess what I would suggest is we decide as a species to pretty much do what every nation on the planet is already doing and lend ourselves an infinite amount of capital to satiate our indoctrinated need to pay for even the most essential of things - and then constructively go about changing the world.

Of COURSE these are crazy ideas... but only because we are perfectly conditioned to resist such "communistic" notions... after all, its much easier to remain blissfully ignorant and complacently satisfied in our manufactured distractions and fabricated turmoil than even consider the very real alternative to all this idiocy we are saturated with.

Let's assume it's simply because I can.







When 80% of the global population is gone we can talk business.

Fuck you, you fucking liberal. You sound like that liberal asshole Jesus Christ, what with the taking care of your fellow man and all. Just like him, you want to help the poor, feed the hungry, and heal the sick.

You liberals are destroying the world!!!

I came so close to giving up cigarettes last year. Managed 9 months straight, and then just had one really shitty day that got me back in the habit......

I agree rob. When do we start? You live in Canadia right? Can you put me up for a while during the planning of this. I'll get my own place eventually, but I think that for the initial planning stage living close to work would be beneficial. Once we reach the implementation phase, I'll move to an underground bunker in AB.

What I got:

Wine tasting is overrated.

Most people could take better care of their pets. I know a girl who actually THREW HER PET HEDGEHOG INTO THE TRASH because she felt it was evil and unsociable. Fuck me.

Animals in general, even the tasty ones, should be treated better. Recently here, a large hole was dug and 150,000 pigs were herded into it where they were buried alive due to foot in mouth disease. This was done because it was the most cost effective solution. I understand the need to exterminate the animals but fucking christ are bullets really that expensive?

BC road workers should pull their thumbs out of their asses and actually do something productive, because every time I see a road crew in BC, there are always 5 guys standing there watching and pointing and offering advice to a 6th guy while he does something with a shovel. It's like the guy who stands there and comments on the other guys meat cooking prowess at barbecues. Oh yeah...that looks nice. Yeah flip and baste that shit...yeah.

Free healthcare?... For everyone? Even the Mexicans and the nignogs who reproduce like mold? It’s a glorious idea except that that would mean a Jew could never become a doctor or health care provider. I use the label “Jew” loosely; we’d have to get over our kind’s current obsession with wealth and bling. When you say “restructured so that it’s not only mandatory and socially regulated”, I think of Orwell; and even though I love “1984”, this makes me want to nun chuck you severely.
I wish I wasn’t reading this so late, I would respond to all the ideas you listed individually; even the ones I don’t care about (politics and religion). You’re right about money and we as a species needing a new “way to keep score”. As far as “restoring the environment, this Rock is tough and old and prolly ain’t going nowhere. If we do piss it off bad enough, it’ll simply do something to wipe us out.In some of my darker, more depressed moments I think we are all doomed. I hope that is just the lack of good booze but who knows?!?

Overall, your ideas are intriguing to me and I wish to subscribe to your newsletter.

I'd like to think we can get to a place where the billions of people in the world are able to resolve their differences without the need for escalating violence.


... but I don't think that is possible - we are just far to prone to kick the ever loving shit out of each other.

The biggest and the strongest will always win - so how do you regulate such an innate imbalance?

"How can we protect something so perfect as "good" without the use of evil?"

I'd like to also re-present my idea that being stupid should be outlawed and punishable by beatings.
