"I'm sorry but I don't want to be an Emperor, that's not my business. I don't want to rule or conquer anyone.
I should like to help everyone if possible, Jew, gentile, black man, white.
We all want to help one another, human beings are like that.
We all want to live by each other's happiness, not by each other's misery.
We don't want to hate and despise one another. In this world there is room for everyone and the earth is rich and can provide for everyone.
The way of life can be free and beautiful. But we have lost the way.
People in Jail for Stealing items to sell for money, so they can have freedom.

You obviously have no idea what i'm trying to say. If lets say, me and you had the same things, would you want to steal mine? I put it under NWO cause i didnt know what else to put it on. Now please, dont take it so straight forward. think about what im saying a little.
I Guess free is a bad word to use. But the resources shouldnt have to be payed for. You are implying that man is naturally bad. When I tend to disagree, I think, and feel, that the way you are brought up has a huge affect on how you think. If we are brought up to think that jealousy and ego were the direct cause of the greed in circulation, and that it made people suffer and die, and made wars, you think they would want to go back?

Your ideas are way too idealistic.
Well for one, ya some people would want to steal from you anyway, some people steal simply to feel better about the fact that you now feel bad in realizing your TV is gone.
On top of the fact that, I may just be jealous of your girlfriend/boyfriend, or the relationship you have with your family, or with the fact that you aren't as fat as me, or going bald like me, or mentally handicapped like me.
If we didn't have objects to get jealous about, we would just get jealous about other things because that is just what people have become. We are fueled by envy/ego.
Also making things free is not a solution, if anything it would just create more problems. To fix the problems in the world the people in charge, the ones who decide the rich should benefit while the poor don't, we need to convince those people that by helping out the people below them on the poverty line, they can actually benefit even more than they do now. Which is true if everything is done right.
Simply creating jobs for mass production isn't going to fix any problems. This idea also relies on the assumption that everyone decides to work. How many people do you think would just go "I'm not working!" since they can get everything for free anyway?
Yet, even if everyone did go out and work, where is the money that the greedy people in charge so desperately want coming from? If I were a billionaire and I owned a company, then tomorrow I was told I had to start giving away my product so I need to mass produce.
I would take whatever money I had, and I would shut down knowing that by continuing I'm just going to lose money. I'd rather sit at what I have and gain nothing, than lose what I made.
Does anyone think this isn't how greedy company owners would see things?
It was well written, I think it would be great in a movie or a TV show since it can go outside the realm of being realistic/reasonable and not be diminished. I really wouldn't want to hear it in person though.
