Quoting Brendan

Yes, that's right folks - this is my 1,000th post. I wanted to make it more than a "OMG 1000 POSTS!!!!1!11!oneonetwo."

P.S. OMG 1000 POSTS!!!!!1!!!11!!oneonetwo!!

just for the record,i love you brendan. if i could, i would give you a whole pumpkin pie instead of this post. but...

sooo.. my ideal world.

schooling is entirely based on the child's dreams(aspirations). basic skills would be taught, but the child/young adult was in control of what he/she learned after a certain age, and you could change that according to what skills they wanted to learn, whatever it was. punishment would be prettymuch nonexistant, and every child's choices would be supported as their choice to make. basically, each person would be nurtured and allowed to follow there own path, whatever it might be. therefore, society would have little to no emphasis on money(or maybe not even have money), but on individual self-actualization. there would be little to no laws, and there would be no central goverment, each town or small area would govern themselves. by that thought, their would be little need for countries, or borders. people would still be exactly like they are today, as far as basic humanity, but those aspects of society would be different. freedom wouldn't even be a word, becuase people wouldn't know that there was anything else other than being free. and high-fives would be widely encouraged.

all this, attainable by what we have now... with a hell of alot of changes.

oh yea, and the usual attire for women would be mini-skirts.

Ideal world.. geeeeez Brendan, that's tough! But interesting ..

Let me start my list..

1. People wouldn't ever hate each other (consequently, no weapons of course).
2. There would be no secrets.
3. People would gather every afternoon in parks around the world to play ball games together (or just chat) - actually sounds a lot like my early childhood!
4. There wouldn't be any cars/airplanes or pollution. Somehow we'd teleport ourselves around the world. Hey, it's an ideal, I didn't say it was possible :)
5. Education and health care would be free for all - not just available to the privileged few.
6. Death would always arrive in our sleep and never leave any sadness.

Well, I could probably list another thousand things here, but I'd rather not write a manifesto right now

Ya knew it couldn't last forever, Q... But I didn't really see any posts worthy of a response - you caved!!!

Maybe.

I love the complexity of this world. The balance between good and evil, right and wrong, fast and slow, beautiful and ugly.... The more time I spend studying its balance the more interesting it seems. I wouldn't want to have the world be only what I dream it to be. That would mean nobody else would have what they want.

Can't agree more on this!

i do agree with you, Quan. i love this world with all its insanity. but i still love just as much the thought of a better world, a world we can all work for.

  • what what*

high fives accepted and highly encouraged.

i love you brendan.

I love you too man. *high five*

I like everyone's posts so far, really interesting stuff.

I love the complexity and diversity of the world and universe we are a part of, but hate & wanton destruction are not part of that beutiful complexity. To me the foundation of all "problems" comes down to desire (greed).

My ideal world would eliminate greed right off the map of existance. If you look at any problem and peel down the complex layers to the core/root of it's source you will find greed.

Like I said, I don't want to prevent other people from having what they want.

I won't want to prevent people from having what they need, people getting their wants is a different story.

Do you mean you prefer yourself as a passer-by in every aspect?
Just watch and see? I believe every person is born to be unique in certain ways but somehow the uniqueness makes someone looks unique because of the different view he/she views and value the world.

B has pointed a good one between the term 'needs' and 'wants' and i agree it is all coming from the world of 'desire'. There's actually nothing wrong with which type of person you want yourself to be but somehow, something we 'needed' to being, because we are part of the living here and we are responsible for the changes.

That's impossible according to the physical laws of the universe. Heisenberg uncertainty principle.

I know what the two words mean. "Want" is the correct term for what I'm trying to express.
