If there was NO money. No one would work. No one would do the dirty jobs: sanitation, garbage, hard labor etc.

Where would this free land come from? If I had worked my entire life for a piece of land only for a big swap around and land to be given away for free i'd be annoyed to say the least. Who would pay for the cattle? Someone out there would have invested a lot of money in raising the cattle only for them to be given away.
What would there be to study? What would be the point? Training yourself up and investing in yourself only to what? Give your new found knowledge away for free? Sorry but I think it would inspire lazyness, people would have no real need to further their educations.
No we don't and I don't see why technology companies should change? I suppose I could argue that what your sitting on right now has furthered mankind, this technology could and can only improve and yet we will throw this all away?

I disagree. Ownership of land and cattle etc...we are nearing 8 billion population...the ways of old are failing.
We need massive living quarters like the size or larger of buildings such as the pentagon, only like 20 stories tall and larger in radius...with the center area available for parks, trees, gardens, pools etc... we could house 50,000 per unit, and all livestock and crops to be on mega farms where everyone puts in "jury duty" to help with the food production...
Massive new transportation projects using high speed rail...slower speed rail, and alternative fuels on massive levels....every single roof should have solar panels on them...modern transport...open up the black ops and give us the damned Tesla technology, and plasma anti-gravity tech...we can reorganize...there is no reason why that in this century we can't END all war, and instead move that $TRILLIONS of dollars spent every year globally into civil re-engineering projects. Don't let anyone tell you we can't because W E C A N ! ! ! !
We need new ideas and fast! If we don't get them...the ways of the old: ie: 26,000 nukes ready to be set off...is this the future we want? it's what we are headed for unless we don't come together immediately and come up with new systems to deal with the populations and the struggles we continue to face year after year after year (homelessness...hunger...lack of health care...starvation...religious strife / associated religio-political corruption at the highest levels...gang / drug problems...military industrial fascist corporate totalitarianism...etc...etc...etc...). We need something free from the Illuminati and the international bankers and oil cartels...

You know, I don't even mind things not being free, nor having to work for money. What really bothers me is 1/3rd of my pay check being stolen for taxes which have no benefit to me except repairing the roads, which they don't even do well either. Then they have the gall to steal from me *every* year after I've already payed for my property once.
That's what gets my temperature rising.
