I like your line of thinking, Lucidity.
I'm not sure. It's a difficult scenario to envision. I believe it definitely be better than what we have today but the main problem i see is forcing
everyone to adhere to these rules. Particular emphasis of that point should be directed towards those at the top of the economic food chain. They
would be the ones screening countries. But surely there would be a thriving black market providing cheap goods that are not subject to
But throwing away these issues and thinking this actually does work:
There needs to be guidance for developing nations to spread their economic contribution. It would be likely that weak economies will try to focus on
one area of their economy and throw all their money into it to develop it and bring it up to the required standard. Then a sudden drop in demand for
that product could bring that entire country down.
But if, like you say, every country is requested/required to be self-sufficient in terms of caring for its people, then yes this could definitely
The one thing I would like to point out though is the following:
Today we can picture the world as a human pyramid. It's tall and people up on top are pushing the others down with their weight. We have achieved
much in science and the top people have impressive spending potential in their economy. Those further down are struggling because they are stuck and
can't move because of the people further up.
In this hypothetical scenario, everyone is standing on their own and can exist on their own. There isn't a need for involvement but it would be
beneficial because the group would be able to achieve more together.
I love the second image. We wouldn't necessarily have the amazing technological advances we have today, but we'd be a much happier world.
The most optimistic thing about that scenario is that by being supportive and helpful (Without being pushy!) I'm sure there would be much more
tolerance on the world.
Sorry if I departed from reality too much.
