Since I first saw the Star Trek movie "First Contact", I have thought the same way. When asked how much they get paid, I believe it was Lavar Burton that related that they dont get paid, rather everyone works for the betterment of society as a whole.
Why not just outlaw all currency world wide. Could you imagine the utopian society that would be bred from a financially free society?
Free health care for all people from birth to death. Doctors would work for the satisfaction instead of profit.
Food growers and distributors could generate truly healthy crops and food stuff, rather than this mutated GMO crap that is being forced on the populace.
Medical Science could actually create beneficial medicines that would in fact cure the plagues of mankind. Without competition in the financial sector, there would be no reason to suppress quality medicines in favor of long term treatments for profit.
On a similar note, we could get away from fossil fuels in a matter of months, since there would not be the few getting rich off of the many. Those fuels might still find a useful purpose, but transportation need not be its continued use.
All people would get a proper education based on their level and ability to comprehend. Basic public education could remain the same curriculum for k-12, with a twist. Seniors would have one extra exploratory class to delve into career fields that interest them. Then, everyone would attend a 4 year continued study in that field before starting their career.
Homes could be built for everyone, based on their need in life. If you are a single person, then you get a modest 1-1 home. If you are married, a 2-2 up to the point that you have more than 1 child which would qualify you for a 3-2, and so on. Without the burden of baby factorying for government financial aid (which would no longer exist), there would be no reason for many to go out and have a bunch of children. Plus, the more highly educated populace would understand restraint to benefit the overall world population.
Religions would all receive equal benefit. They would be allowed ot develop just as they do now, with their congregation doing the labor that was once paid on by donations and charity. Perhaps here again, we would see a more highly educated people making more rational choices and having a greater understanding of the shared society and holy wars would be a thing of the past.
Governing would go back to being for the people and governments would truly be able to return to their roots. Their basic function of elected representatives of the masses could return to just that. They would be the singular voice speaking for their small collective. In capitalist terms, they would be the Managers reporting to the Directors.
Capitalism would be streamlined to the point that items would be of good quality because there is only competition in quality, durability and efficiency...not cost.
Science would be free to explore everything. Astro Physics, Astronomy, Engineering, all working on the greater purpose of exploring the limits of human intelligence and the space we occupy. These great minds that are currently working for this group or that could work together and nations could collectively advance human evolution by leaps and bounds.
