Money, it's a drag

Post by Dan on Thu Jul 04, 2013 7:20 pm

The good folks over at The One People have somehow managed to secure 5-10 billion in gold and silver PER PERSON on Earth. So really, none of us have to work again... Well life is never THAT easy hey?

Imagine you can have some land, materials to build a house and a car that runs on water. Imagine the power is provided from a box that pulls it out of the air. Your water is pure and filtered and you have a vegetable garden and some chickens. The neighbour has a cow and you swap milk and eggs. You can access any information over the internet and participate in the world's decisions.

Say we could have a system where you can pre order everything like shopping sites, but it's made for you to your specifications, and designed to last... already we have a lot less wasted production. Say If we pull the scientists and engineers away from the corporations they can build skyscrapers to produce food, run by machines, clothes made by machines and anything else you care to imagine.

Well that's kinda how it happens anyway, right?

So if it was free, and things are made to last no one has to work, eh? Well no. There are still machines that need fixing and old people to take care of (no machines please) and children to teach. There are still films to be made and songs to be sung and games to be programmed. But no telesales agents!

So you can have those things, but you are asked to help in the community in exchange. What child wants to wash the dishes? Not many. How about when you offer a sweet? The great thing is that you can do what you choose to do. and for those tasks that are rely boring that a robot can't do, well we can take it in small shifts if needs be... no more 9-5 or even Monday to Friday... just a few hours a week.bounce

Some people might suggest a "fair use" policy, and i can get that. Stops greedy people having 10 cars while the next chap is still waiting. Remember that the power is with the people so no-one is going to come along one day and go "ah, well we can't sustain this any more, so we are going to ration you now".

For those going "Communism" I have news for you, it's one of your rights to own things, you still have a house and a car if you desire. No one can force you to do anything, but you will be pressured by your friends. You can go and "hire" a plane for free, as long as someone has taught you how to fly one (some things we will likely just have to share, but then we might have hover cars shortly anyway and not need planes) So you get the picture.

Imagine if over 7 billion people were free to use their time on Earth to think creatively, act with compassion and enjoy their lives with their loved ones and communities. I think we'd have hover cars built by tomorrow. The point is that this is not fantasy- humans are a remarkable species and been given this wonderful, irreplaceable life on an amazing, gorgeous, living planet. Lets not act stupid fumbling in ignorance and fear any longer, lets take that final step. Instead of measuring success with GDP and sports cars, lets start measuring it in sustainability, creativity and happiness.

Communism, socialism... these are dirty words, let's just try to achieve an equal shot at happiness for everyone on the planet, and all of those to come

100% agree with you there Balearicdreams. Especially how we measure success. Ask a 5-10 year old how they prioritize things and you will find it boils down to how long they can do the thing that is the most fun for them at the time... that, food, or sleep. Where do "normal" people loose this? I never did and am by no means normal, but i guess somewhere between work and family? If we could just get control of one of the 'big 6' media companies we could change things in a week... but that's not happening any time soon...
