What is your ultimate dream that you could achieve if you had 200 billion dollars to spend?
I would probably use 180 billion dollars to help the world. I would give about 10 billion to multiple nonprofit organizations to help research on
cures for many human diseases as well as advancing medical science. Also I use no less then 100 billion dollars to give to World Health Organization,
Feed The World organization and other similar organizations to help the less fortunate people (much of which are kids) of the world to a better life.
Providing food, water, medical help, shelters, basic schooling and jobs will be my longest term goal for the under privileged. As well as a large
scale efforts to save the earth environments and fellow animals (50 billion dollars). I would also fund people to get rid of mines left over from
wars, as well as other dangerous weapons and chemicals (10 billion dollars) And last but not least I would spend 10 billion dollars of fund research
and production of cleaner and much more efficient energy generators.
My longest dream though was to set up a utopian society on an island. With my 20 billion dollars that I would have left over, I would use it to buy a
large geologically stable island (about 1,000 sq. km with a small mountain range with a peak of no less then 2km). I would then build small size
community of about 25,000 - 50,000 people (from all over the world) mostly of which are specialist (and their families) in their fields of work from
cooking, cleaning to construction and computers and everything in between. This will be a very clean community that is completely self substaining
providing its own food, water, energy and resources. Living on this island is much like a constant vacation where everyone is laid back, worries free
and just enjoying life. Of course everyone will have thier duties to help contriubuit to the society, but they wont be tedious like working in a
cubical... Their duties will probably be enjoyable to most people because it is usually their field of knowledge. There will still laws and
regulations, but they are most based on the Confucius principle of: "Do onto others as you would have them do onto you". The island and community
will not be part of any country, and it will not be recognized as being one also but will be protected under international law.
This is my dream... but its sad to see that people with a great deal of money dont really spend much money to help their fellow man.
So what would
you guys do if you had the money?
