Well... all that would be a matter for localized debate I suppose. My personal belief is we could go with minimal change, because I think we just need
a few localized changes to make society work:
1) Fair distribution of wealth in the corporate structure, ie, no more parasite businessmen class, to be replaced with well paid managers that are
accountable to the workforce. I don't dispute inequality of wages and that some positions are key and more important than others, nor do I go against
supply and demand even for work, but I do think 200m bonuses while the company sinks is a little extreme, so corporations need balance. With this idea
comes also a shift in working hours, to lower hours and higher pay jobs, so unemployment is reduced. Instead of viewing people as competition, people
in profitable sectors could work less and assimilate more workers, because that would strengthen the middle class and with it society, while reducing
criminality and vagrency.
2) Downsizing of government and military, gradually, as tensions die down. Ideally the military would be replaced with some sort of civil defense
force in the long term, dedicated to defense within borders and possibly interfaced with police, fire and ambulance departments, so that they save
lives instead of taking lives.
3) Government scaled down to local administration, we don't need lumbering burocracies crashing into each other and being manipulated by elites.
4) Redifinition of globalism, instead of a huge market where jobs are shuffled about by elites and people get stripped of their local cultures in the
interests of homogeneization, we have a one world information infrastructure and commerce with interacting but autonomous local populations and a
thriving tourism market.
5) Family wealth cap anywhere between 100 million and a billion dollar region. Why? So people can be wealthy enough to have a millionaire lifestyle
but not wealthy enough to have macroeconomic relevance and impose selfish agendas onto group infrastructure and policy.
These are just a few loose ideas, out of the thousands of things that could be done, but the core principle is humanity needs to seek balance, not a
revolution, but an evolution to a stable socioeconomic and political framework that is not hijacked by sociopaths and is not based on negatives, like
competition, scarcity and the bottom line, but that actually has a goal which is to make our lives better. The core problem with modern society is
that it's objectives have been hijacked, it exists to make our lives easier, not engulf us in chaos.
