Just a fun little topic that we were discussing in chat.


If you had the power to change just one thing on this planet. What would it be ?

However, this change would be a permanent and non reversible change.

You only get to change one thing.

No matter how big or small, and it can never be changed back.

Discuss your reasons why, and what effect both positive and negative this change would have on the world over time.


So.... what would you change, and why ?

I would change these fucking socks.
They don't fit right, they have never fit right, and they leave a horrible indentation in my shin after I've taken them off.

The makers off said socks could then concentrate their efforts on clean water solutions and sanitation for the donkeys of Oatman in CA, and clearly marked "Donkey Only" lanes on their viciously busy high street.

No. Fair enough thread clown boy.

I'd somehow disengage the part of peoples brains that for some reasons thinks it's OK to turn a blind eye to the suffering of other beings. The seemingly inherent belief that we are more worthy of justice and health and prosperity based on where one is born - that a child that apparently chooses to be born in a warzone is fair game when it comes to survival statistics, that someone who wants a better life for themselves and their family is deemed a no-go because of their birthplace and skin colour.

If we realised that we are all the same and that borders are artificial and that cruelty to fellow sentient beings, no, all beings is intolerable, then we might begin to see a better world.

i sometimes ponder this , i wonder what i would do if i was offered the chance to go back in time on a one way ticket to the Braunau am Inn, Austria on the 20th of april 1889 about 2 minutes after adolf hitler was born with an axe. would i be justified in killing a newborn child to save countless millions from the war . and then i think was he pure in essence and soul at that early moment do i have the right to end his life ? or is fate inevetable? and if i did how would i seem . if you were in that room as i did a lizzy borden impression how would you think of me ? a maniac? a monster ? but im saving the world id say and you reply of cource you were as you shout for the white coats . and then the aftermath , sitting in an asylum untill death listening to why did you do it , why did you do it , 2 lives for 20 million , what would i do ?.....................................
We thought about it for a long time, "Endeavor to persevere." And when we had thought about it long enough, we declared war on the Union.

FOR SALE !

A world without money.

Money is a tool used to divide material wealth unequally. The people with the least empathy for their fellow man will seek it and control it. Those that play fair will always fall victim to those that don't. We need to throw this tool out, it works for them and not so much for us.

It is a little difficult to get your heads around because it is so foreign to our accepted way of viewing worth and compensation but the more you do the more you realize the possibilities are limitless.

Many will say this would destroy incentive and is nothing less than socialism. I very much disagree! Sounds more like community to me. Life has to be about more than everything being for sale. At some point we have to choose to do the right thing just because it is the right thing to do and not because it is the most economical or feasible.

We are beginning to look like the "Ferengi" on star trek.

So.... what would you change?


:think:

Make everyone like superman so that they would eventually tire out on beating on each other when they realize they can't kill each other no more. This would lead to a sane society I think, or at the very least a cool one lol.
