When I say embrace laziness, I mean don't feel ashamed of the extra time you have. The majority of people will not do nothing. Unless they have
problems that interfere with normal functioning, they will be out and about learning about there world. They might do that in the open air or they may
choose to do that online. The future people will not see a difference between the two. People will be so much more educated that we would all look
stupid; ok, most of us. People will live on earth, and think of others as companions.
We still have responsibilities, Ram. I think the most important for our discussion are:
(these are my own opinions, but everything is within reach)
First, energy is there to control/tame the actions/behaviours of people. There is no real energy crisis. What there is is a crisis of good
intelligent decisions made by people who're doing it for the good of all and not just being bullied.
Firstly, america is not just a primary consumer, it is also very wastefull of its food. There is plenty of food to go around on this planet. What we
need to do is make good decisions about where it goes. That happens when we're free and educated, and not bullied around by ruthless tyrants and
Pollution is like cancer, its something that can be prevented. Glaciers are going to soon dry up and fresh water (clean) will go along with it. Where
will we get our clean water? This is not really technical because we know how to clean water. The problem is priority. Since we don't care about
pollution, why should we care about water? Right now its only a growing concern, we're not evolved enough to appreciate what clean water represents
on our planet.
I think we need more affordable housing for our seniors. We need more affordable housing for everyone!! As far as I am concerned, I think small. When
I think of housing, I think efficient and small. Not everyone agrees.
Education is like an arm of governemnt. It is there for everyone, one of the most accessible basic rights for all of humanity; like water or food.
Don't ever let corporations control the hearts and minds of men!!!! Education is primal.
Healthcare is like education to me. It is a basic right. We have no reason to be killing eachother to see who can get the best healthcare the fastest.
I think part of being happy is being treated like a thinking intelligent human being.
Really, I don't have too many other comments. All of this is within reach. Our ability to reach it is proportional to our education and state of
I think we need a governing arm for the planet too; world scope. To keep us under one roof; we're family.
This idea that a world government won't work to me is premature...
What won't work is having thousands of nuclear weapons firing all at once...
We can't rely on the playstation 3 or go online all day. Even given the choice to, most people would have a long list of other things they want to
do. We have responsibilities on this planet to take care of. But, lets be reasonable!!! We don't have to fight wars to live happily! Nor do we have
to work like slave laborers. We don't need several thousand thermonuclear weapons either. The one thing we DO have to do is go to school on a normal
basis. I know some people do not like school, but its imperative that its part of our lifestyle to learn and grow as a member of society. Most people
should also be required or motivated to participate in community programs like government or resource production and distribution. That is all tied
into making a more educated, empowered people. These people love to play games and go online for long periods, but they also enjoy to make the world a
better place for everyone. Given more time to do this, they will blossom. Instead of being ruled by ruthless tyrants or corporations, people will have
more control over their lives and a better understanding of the larger world. A trully free people.
That will be a government OF the people BY the people...
And the government will serve us, not the other way around!
That can only work, if we're an educated people!
I would love to go online and build an experimental virtual world to test social/government models on populations of participants. However, I would
also love to do this in the spirit of making our planet a better place to live. The internet allows to communicate in incredibly diverse and powerfull
ways. Do it!
Again, I say, education is #1 on my list for humankind!!!
There is so much potential out there for us, but if we don't realize it, it fades away...
If we don't want cleaner energy, if we don't want more effective policy, we won't have it...
If there're UFOS, judging from the state of our planet, I would guess that our military shoots first, and asks questions later. Personally, I feel
its much easier to fire a weapon than it is to understand something on both an intellectual and emotional level. If we let our military decide our
future they'll have us fighting with every alien civilization within our known territories. Once our world population has attained a sort of
stability, like I've been alluding to in my previous posts, we'll be ready for a real non-violent contact scenario.
When that time comes I think we'll find that non-violent tactics will gain us more friends in the cosmos...
