    Down with the corporations! And corrupt governments!
    And rampant capitalism.
    Personally I'm waiting for the Zombie Apocolyspe, I reckon that will clear out a few problems, and then survivors can then restructure society in a way that would be impossible now, unless all the little people started a mass riot across the world, but that's not going to happen because the little people still think they are little and individual.

    Oh and no fluoride in the water. Yes, I believe the conspiracy theories. Good for teeth, nuh uh. Dentists are good for teeth. Keeping every one passive and indolent, Win! (I'm not crazee, honest ).
    Currently submerged under an avalanche of books and paper work. I may come back up for air from time to time.

    Extending my list of morals (ones that mostly focus on people being compassionate for all, social libertarianism, etc.) as the common morals that make up the foundation of society, thus bringing the individual beings of the world closer together and in harmony with each other. Either that, or me being philosopher king of the world with all the masses under my power.

    This is the truth, this is what the world needs. Since you seem to share my vision for a better world, when I take over it as philosopher king I'll let you rule by my side.

    No, just no.

    and legalizing weed.
    Yes, yes, yes. It sickens me that pot smoker, who are otherwise mostly harmless people, are being unjustly thrown in jails. They should not have to suffer the horrors of prison and giving them freedom will help to make the world better. Also, more people in this world seriously need to get stoned.

    Its so bizarre to see all those recommendations in a single sentence.

    You know the brain damage from smoking weed might mean you eventually qualify for either of the other two recommendations you begin with. Which would be ironic.

    I used to believe in dozens of wild schemes for restructuring the economy, took an interest in both the socialist and uncapitalist (libertarian but unlikely to be a straight forward kick back to the rich and corporations reforms) idea but I'm much less enthused by them than I once was and have begun to think that the relative prosperity of a money circulating mixed economy achieves most of the goals of relative safety and prosperity while not being injurious enough to threat collapse of the most basic enduring, organic social institutions.

    Nowadays I think in personal and cultural terms more than I do structural terms, I'd like to see a move from the "me" culture or a "we" culture, not a neurotic self-sacrificing one because this would be a false dawn and only really the reinvention of a "me" culture with submissive and domineering "me" individuals, but a genuine growth of mutualism and reciprocal obligations in the place of rights, entitlements and unreal expectations.

    Part of this paradigm shift I think would have to involve less anti-social behaviour, less of the mentality which values the suppression of feeling and expression of hard heartedness and casualises cruelty, with much more cognizance of whether or not how you behave is likely to prove threatening to others. I'd like to see conviviality, social conscience and courtesy make a come back.

    The agents of this kind of change I dont expect to be governments or legislation, its only really something which can be achieved by individuals and small groups, building to something but I dont exactly know what, perhaps sharing their own resources to try and circulate their message and get people together to discuss it and disseminate it if they agree.

    My own ideals or hoped for reality when it comes to utopias these days are something like a garden state or the pictorial or literary ideals of the philosophers like Socrates and Plato meeting and dialoging. Something like an internet forum but in person, were you share each others time, company, opinions, without any fighting breaking out or any kind of expense, like having to buy food or drink or something just to be gathered together. In my best case scenario this either results in the limiting or rolling back of the sorts of social fragmentation and identity politics which I believe feed the "me" culture, eclipses consumerism as the dominant pass time and replaces the sorts of abstraction which I think makes for a lot of hostility in debates in most contexts.

    You are totally uneducated about the topic. Not one reputable study has shown any link between smoking marijuana and brain damage. In the information age, such ignorance is inexcusable and would warrant the death penalty in my hypothetical world state.

    It would be great to the world that some alien enemy could unite us and stop our wars. But then, we would be in war against him, and that could be even worse.
    Anyway, that's just an imaginary example of how difficult it can be to find common interests... but still, I think it's important to find them.

    Replace capitalism with a barter system, and be more in touch with the earth like the the Native Americans were. Oh and have very strict rules, example: if you steal your arm gets chopped off.
