Here's an idea that will never be realized as long as there are people who have the power to take more than belongs to them and deprive others of what they need.
Lets change the system so that housing costs a direct percentage of your income. If you make 10,000 dollars, then yearly you pay 1000 dollars rent. If you make 10,000,000 dollars a year, then yearly you pay 1,000,000 dollars rent. Lets do the same for food. 10% for food, 10% for rent, 10% for health care, etc.
Obviously, there's a million reasons it won't work. It discourages working hard. In this system, wh*** businesses might collapse from the sheer fact that no one would ever do that work when some other form of work might still net them all their needs.
But, what if...just what if. What if we agreed as a global species to support every single one of ourselves, regardless of how little or much they work? What if we created a system in which there was no incentive to spend a lot of time and energy doing something you hate so that you can do something you love "later". For most, this later never comes. They stay in the job they hate, afraid to leave it because it could be worse.
But, what if we agreed as a global species that things could also get better? What if we created a system where each person was ultimately free to pursue their own vision of what it getting better would look like? Where, instead of relying on the vision of those who've been blinded by greed and money, we eliminate the power behind the money.
What if we had the income records of each and every person in the world, and when someone came to buy from you, you could see how much to charge them on the basis of how much they have to pay with? Mr. Gates, that bottle of Orange Juice will be 10,000,000 dollars. (After all, Gates didn't generate that money from nothing, but from the time and energy of millions of people...why not give it back...Windows is crap anyway) Thanks. Have a great day. Well, now you just made 10,000,000 dollars cause B. Gates was thirsty. Next time you go to get a meal at a restaurant..."that will be 10,000 dollars"...until suddenly, within short time...we realize that the money is distributed, and the money becomes meaningless.
Maybe it could happen.
