At what point do we love our neighbors, stop the baseless bickering and say # it enough is enough I've been thinking and difference does it make,
whether destruction is wrought under the name of totalitarianism or in the holy name of liberty, patriotism and/or democracy?
I have an idea for a utopian society all thoughts all welcome from all ATS no matter your pre-conceived affiliations, some ideas are snippets from
personal thoughts, snippets from scifis, comics.. etc.. rambling thoughts. Could be ascribed to order from much chaos, whatever.. just hear me out ATS
or a state of things, where perfection exists – no war, hunger, unhappiness – has been a dream of many for centuries for good
utopia (noun) an imaginary land where every one is happy. Utopia is an imaginary place where only good things happen, and good people live
I saw a thread on ATS that said a Utopia couldn't work, the theory always revolves around currency and the fact that eventually funnels into the %1
one way or another. All people dream of paradise. No matter what your perspective of paradise might be, for my hypothetical it is described as the age
old dream of a world where everybody would live in harmony, united by a single common will and faith.
Imagine a glass house on the hill with pine trees and wonderful neighbors, if the %1 did not exploit these archetypes, which are deep inside us all
and rooted deep in all politics and all religions, it could never attract so many people, especially during the early phases of its existence. Once
the dream of paradise starts to turn into reality, however, here and there people begin to crop up who stand in its way. and so the rulers of paradise
must build a little gulag on the side of Eden. This is not a left or right thing. And In the course of time this gulag grows ever bigger and more
perfect, while the adjoining paradise gets even smaller and poorer.
A Utopia could work
We would live in a world where currency is obsolete and to to get out you would have to put in. Friends and strangers would be able to rate your
reputation and prevalence out of five stars, on the worlds first governmental state-sponsored app It would be called "Ether"
, it would be a blend
between the most popular social platforms like Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, but it would be mostly like periscope, it would work with both
smartphones, VR technology and standard smart lenses that display everyone's name and current rating in real-time.
You can be whoever you want NASCAR driver, a plumber, a nurse ,a fisherman, a store cashier, a software engineer, a magician, a lion tamer, a window
washer, or a astrophysicist. Any community service (job) would be acceptable, all are acceptable but not all will be rated equally.
ultimately matters is its your choice because you're now in my utopia. Everyone is socially acceptable, and not that it's mandatory, it's just because
its who we are, And instead of social security card a a social security smartphone or tablet would be provided to every citizen by the state no matter
you or your parents ratings prior to or upon birth,
Not only would this implementation affect day-to-day lifestyle, but it would also affect social standing, below 2.5's and lower would be considered
lower-class, And to afford to live in an exclusive estate, you would have to have a rating of 4.5 or above, and the best way to improve your own
rating would be to simply be yourself and socialize with other highly ranked people, that would be because their ratings would be able to carry more
weight, than let's say a 1.5. Society would function as it functions now except everything is ripe for everyone's own wilt.
Not to be confused with not contributing and driving around in a Ferrari, Your incentives would vary In your own unique intricate socioeconomic
status, an example is a middle-class beneficiary would need to maintain between 2.2 - 3.0 to recieve most valuable sponsored incentives. Things like
ATV's, hover-boards, fishing-boats, or other "Ether" sponsored incentives like free fine-dining at 5 star restaurants that would have squillium
Fancyson in tears. I know this could work because everyone would maintain gainful employment simply to keep their ratings up so they can also recieve
anything they want free things of which are also built by others who are also providing for the community to keep their ratings up.
The likes of Teachers, Brain surgeons, Firemen, Doctors, Astronauts, Astronomers, Geologists etc.. Would be among the elite of society bankers would
be maybe 3.0 depending on their socially attained ratings by friend families and co-workers and random strangers, it would be mandatory to attain a
4.4 or higher to attain such positions of the publicly attained socially sponsored elites(Brain surgeons, doctors, astronauts, astronomers etc..)
functions of society.
