There is no solution under the current paradigm. We need new thinking and new visions. We need to work together to make everyone;'s lives better. We
need to find a role for everyone to participate in it. We need to stop fighting over resources and money because there is no net winner when someone
wins and someone loses, only imbalance which threatens the creation of any ideal system. Any change based on current ideals is doomed to eventually
fail. We can't let greed control progress. We need progress to control us in a sense.
I see a united technologically advanced world where everyone gets all they need and most of what they want. When basic and most selfish needs are
fulfilled, then the greed that destroys and separates us will no longer be a driving force. For those who continue on it's insistance, it would
likely be a very difficult transition, but we simply can't let those with the worst human characteristics have any say to what happens with the
majority of us.
Earning money will no longer be part of the equation. Earning respect from the rest of society will be the driving force and what will spur this
golden age. Jamie Dimon would probably be great in deciding how to best allocate our various resources for maximum benefit rather than maximum profit.
However, even if so, his compensation would be in the same range as a janitor who does top notch work, or a top doctor, or a top factory assembler.
For the most part, people could just keep doing the work they are doing. All work however would have the goal of best possible execution rather than
the goal of maximum profit. We could have people able to dedicate themselves to the arts, the sciences, etc. Without profit as the driving force
advancement would occur so much faster.
The golden age is possible. Eliminating the need for greed is the first step.
