Big Governments in America and throughout the world are the enemy of mankind and they're destroying us. It's sad that so many people fall in love
with Governments and crooked Politicians who can give a good speech. At the end of the day, Governments are an extension of a tribal mentality. In
this day and age, Governments role in peoples lives should be reduced and self-governing should increase as the world becomes more interconnected.
Governments know this and so they want more control. More rules, regulations and they really want the internet. The free flow of information isn't a
good thing for Governments no matter how many times crooked Politicians use the word transparency.
We could use things like social networks, open source and the internet to give birth to new ways for us to Govern ourselves with a lighter and lighter
imprint from the Government structure we have now.
For instance things like healthcare and Social Security. My 4 year old nephew will not need these programs like my 70 year old Aunt. The fact that we
still have fights over these programs makes no sense. They have to be changed and phased out because of the increase in life expectancy. With science
and technology in areas like nanotechnology and genetics, life expectancy will increase even more. Maybe Parents can put money in a fund every month
until the child is 18 and that money will be used for Healthcare. We could start a Kickstarter like website for ideas about S.S. and Medicare and how
to best restructure these programs. I trust the minds of free individuals over fiats from crooked Politicians.
Lastly, we need to concentrate on science, technology and space exploration instead of worrying about people drinking big gulps or Obamacare. I think
the world united around something like space exploration will be a good thing. Is there life on other planets and exploration of places like Titan and
Europa will be important to future generations as well as ways to terraform planets.
Big Government will get in the way of these things as they start more wars and feel more and more threatened by people with access to more and more
information. Sadly, I think we're going in the opposite direction and that's horrible for our children and grandchildren.
