Let me start by saying i am unsure which forum this belongs in, Mods please move it if i have put it in the wrong place.
Ok let's get started,
I think we can all agree that life on our little blue planet is precarious at best, The never ending conflicts, Millions worldwide living in poverty,
the Blatantly corrupt political systems we adhere to are just a few of the issues that plague our existence and i found myself thinking how can we
change what is broken in our world.
Many politicians and leaders over the centuries have tried to change the world for the better and some have had limited success. The problem is too
many of these leaders tried to make the changes with rivers of blood and yes wiping out those who would oppose them is one way of enacting the changes
they deemed necessary but it doesn't solve the underlying issues that are prominent in every culture in our past....
Our education system is at it's core flawed, i say this because as children we are told to work hard in school so that when we grow up we can have
good jobs that pay well...
my issue with this thinking is that it places limits on what our children focus on, I decided from a young age that i wanted to be a soldier and so i
put my focus into History, Geography and languages while doing everything i could to boost my physical fitness
I am sure many of you here made similar decisions at a young age and when you had completed your education you may have found that you were on a
career path that didn't suit you...
If the system was changed to promote learning and Knowledge not as a stepping stone to a career path but as it's own objective then as a result the
focus of our children would be spread over a larger variety of subjects...
Progress Not Profit
Our entire Lives are geared towards Profit... How much money we can earn in order to support our families and live a comfortable life, there is
nothing wrong with a man or women who takes care of his family but what if as a collective unit we shifted our focus from profit and made progress for
the sake of progress
Scientific discoveries would not be shelved due to a lack of earning potential, Medicines and Cures for diseases available to all who needed them....
Of course i realize the issues with this.. Money doesn't grow on trees and we all need it to survive right?
Money does grow on trees!
Money is just paper so technically it does grow on trees... and those paper notes you carry around in your pocket have absolutely no value at all just
as the numbers you see on the screen when you check your bank balance don't have any value... The Real value is in Gold, silver, precious stones and
anything else you can trade...
Living as a self sufficient community and trading with our neighbors would create beneficial local economies and promote a reliance on each other as
opposed to our so called leaders...
Until we discard our insane need for wealth and riches we will never make any real progress as a species
By Lose Control i don't mean let go of your inhibitions
i Mean stop letting yourself be controlled by others
like it or not we are all under the control of our governments, Banks, Employers etc and yes it's very easy to just accept that it's the way of the
world and move on but what if we said...
Enough is enough, these people who hold our lives in their hands are not above reproach and they make mistakes like everybody else and yet
we allow them to make decisions for us on a regular basis...
Personally i believe that we have been indoctrinated to be subservient in every aspect of our lives from a very young age and this has been going on
We should Govern ourselves in our communities without people in our respective capitals doing it for us.
Now obviously these 3 steps are by no means easy as my title suggests but i honestly believe that if the majority of us took a stand and tried to
enact these changes upon the world then collectively we could make it a much safer and harmonious place to be....
So there it is.. i Know many of you will think i am a dreamer with my head in the clouds and that may be true but please let me know your ideas on
what i have written or even share with me ideas of your own, maybe if we all work together we can think of even more ways to enact change for the
benefit of all
I look forward to hearing from you all
