Just out of curiousity, How many people would just totally let the power go to their head? Have some fun with it, total indulgence. Sort of like in "Lord of the Rings" how if anyone had the power, even if they meant to do well, would simply be overwelmed, and just give in?
Personally, I think that would happen more often then not. I think people would be more like Caligula then Mother Teresa.

OK, lets swing for the fence. Eliminate money No more money means no more greed. Everyone working together for the betterment of humanity. Yeah I know "pie in the sky thinking" and maybe I've watched to much Star Trek, but I wonder what it would be like. Is money the root of all evil?

First thing I'd do is turn the means of production over to the workers.
let the workers be their own boss and all benefit equaly from their labour.
I would ban all ownership of land and property (buildings not personal property) unless the owner is personaly working that land or property, and not exploiting it for personal gain. No exces ownership of what you really don't need.
All excess land and property would be turned over to people who wish to work it and make it productive.
No more amasing of personal wealth, no more land and property owned purely for investment and benifit of individuals.
Land and property is the right of all. All who work should benifit equaly from their labours, not just the person who happens to have the funds to "buy" property or means of production.
We have enough resources to give everyone a home and food on their plate, problem is most of it is owned and controled by the few, to their benifit not the benifit of the whole.
Put the power back in the hands of the worker, the backbone and majority of any society.
