  • May 19 2013: I do not hold t the illusion of Utopia, but there steps
    That I would take to ensure human dignity!!!
    Clean Water, good food, modern human housing,
    Energy, access to information and good health
    Care/maintenance should be guaranteed as a function
    Of ones humanity wether expenditure of ones wealth.
    Will there still poor people? Of course.
    Will people still do stupid stuff? You betcha!
    Will poets and playwrites songwriters and journalist
    Still have the"human condition" as a source of Inspiration?
    But we would demonstrate a mutual , humane treatment of
    One another and that is about as good as our species can get
    Anytime soon!!!
    He'll that would be pretty good!
