    What? Isn't it true??? I mean seriously! Okay, okay, okay, yes, please let us all be politically correct and say we want world peace for everyone and we all wanna be flower power children. Meanwhile, back at the ranch, in reality, NO ONE wants peace because we all know what it would mean and what it would take to get there!

    If you want to attempt world domination just join #mishasminions

    What else can NFs do without a few good old SPs? And NTs and SJs?

    Um. I don't want to attempt world domination! And have that much responsibility, hell no!

    Okay, the burden is on you, then! How would YOU organize a whole system that accommodates every group so that no one is upset, everyone has enough, no one has too much, and no one is grappling for more????

    GOOD LUCK.

    A system where all cultures have equal value and esteem, where no one tries to impose his/her will on anyone, and everyone is content to let everyone be without leaving them alone but also cooperate????

    Such a world DOES. NOT. EXIST.

    What? how can i so not relate to a fellow enfp!
    To address a)
    There are so many resources, there are plenty for everyone!
    Writing off 3rd world debt would be a good start.
    (not got to the other letters yet)
    But
    Who is not willing to give up anything?
    Iv'e seen small communities where they share their last bowl of rice and by sharing it they have a lot to loose (like nutrition). I share when i have a lot to loose, or not a lot to loose.
    Many people do it, it's called humanity.

    I was thinking more globally, not specifically. Sure, I'm willing to give to people (especially deserving people) that is not the question.

    The question here is whether you can create a system whereby there is long-term peace and contentment and a high standard of life without inflating a system to gigantic proportions and creating a system meltdown.

    I maintain it is impossible purely on an economic level. Now you have to maintain political stability, cultural identity, global unity, and everything else!

    Good, Lord, man, have you any idea what you are setting out to do?????

    I personally couldn't organize it, i didn't say that anywhere. My organizational skills are, at best, little more than pathetic.
    But i certainly like to be party to the idea of it.
    Idealism is more my bag than realism.
    World wide peace, stability and equality is no mean feat.
    We would need all types on board.
    We would probably need to eradicate religion or find some universal one, divvy up land per capita, grow our own crops....
    and on and on
    oh and
    definately end evil multinationals.
    I don't have a solutional singulary, we need world wide co-operation.

    I wasn't arguing with your premise, just the statements on their own. They feel cold.

    I don't have an attitude. I'm simply saying that I do not see why huge amounts of time, energy, and resources should be dedicated to a pursuit that is fruitless, pointless, and unreasonable. As a result, I wanted to demonstrate that not all NFs are of the same opinion, and I wanted to throw that into the mix.

    Take this hypothetically, but somewhat seriously: Why don't all ya'll NT's get together and cure cancer? I mean, it's widely believed (around here anyway) that NT's have superior IQs.
