A major problem in America, and indeed the world, is the persistent failure to combine the benefits of an agricultural society with the advances in technology and automation available today.
The process would take less than a decade, and if attempted honestly and with only a small margin of greed, could feed and clothe every man woman and child in the nation for pennies compared to dollars.
Hemp could play a huge role in the New Revolution. As a medicinal OTC drug, it could eliminate half of all health complaints
This change I'm proposing would move many people out of the cities, and since city life has been proven to cause mental illness, this would be another quantifiable bottom-line benefit.
High tech jobs would explode, while menial labor positions would shrink
as they would if food, clothes, and building materials were 1/10th the cost
My ideal society is one where the basic choice for a child is, do I want to be a doctor/engineer and live an opulent lifestyle, or do I want to be an artist, and just get by on my meager, but wholly sufficient, government assistance.

Hmm, How would i resolve it??? thats the big question, im sorry to say that 1 person cannot resolve the decline the world is going through, there is not one reslolution that will dramatically change the we way we work internally, i myself still opt for out of world interference that will make drastic changes to our planet, but i cannot put a finger on it yet........ do you have any say in this debate jessmole ? how do you think this world will change ?
Scaart, sorry it has taken me a little while on getting back on site and topic... Been busy doing a passion that I have outside of my Job... I wish I had that same desire in my line of work... one time I did. Right now, I just maintain it to provide... So How Can Just One Person Make a change...
Really? Scaart, think about this, I suspect that you provide something for yourself, family, and all other aspects of your daily life, to others that You think might be pointless.. Is it? If so, how can you make a simple solution to do it better, if not simple, Deep resolve thats will require more effort to make it better! That is something in it self that is out of this world to realize! Expecting a Alien intervention, or a Religious realization, or whatever it is that takes you in doing it right, in your heart... It take less energy to do so, and we feel better by it... I suspect you know the other results of not doing so.
Okay, yes I do have a opinion, and deep conviction in such a debate that you have asked in your last question...
Its the Child, that is hungry, cold, abused, and asking why I'm here to live this way, when there is more.... It just takes one person to reverse that.
Are you the One?
I do have many more concerns, right now just looking for the pulse of this thread... Right now there has been some good insight, that has gone only so far, it's only been a repeat of know problems... I go back to my question... Do you have a resolve/solution to any of the thousands of problems that needs to be addressed?
Right now the system is not working well with the current methods that have been put in place.
Looking forwards from hearing more of you, and others!
Money still maintains its allure if its relegated to the purchase of luxury items. The difference is of course, in a system like I've proposed money is not necessary for life, only for luxury. That is a system that will never be embraced by those in power who worship the dollar, and relish the control the demand for it gives them over the citizens.
