Evolutionary! Let me know your thoughts and how you could help facilitate something like this.

Its time for a change. We all know this. We think it's time for a change to fix a financial system or prevent business from failing or to protect our country by whatever means necessary. No this is not the time for that. NOW is the time for a change on how we treat each other and how we think of each other. It is time for a spiritual change, a moral change, a change that really matters to our children and their children. We have to change or we doom them to pay for our irresponsibility and ignorance. I will not ask you to make this change for me or for your country. I ask you to do this for your family. That is all I can ask of you because I will do the same for mine EVERY SINGLE TIME! We don't need to change the world. The world got us this far but we have lost our way. We all seek the path of peace and prosperity BUT this cannot be achieved through violence or intimidation. This can only be achieved by UNDERSTANDING. Understanding that we cannot rely on people who lie for a living. We cannot rely on pretenders. It is clear we cannot rely on what we have been relying on. We must rely on each other. They do not want to help us. We've made it easy for them. I refuse to continue this any longer. I'm tired of being walked on, I'm tired of breaking my back to make a company richer while I struggle, I'm tired of it all. Aren't you? It is time for this change. We are watching the world fall to pieces day by day. I say we build our world NOW as we watch this old world crumbles beneath us. We CAN make it better. We just have to work together and believe. Think of what Humans have achieved in small groups throughout history. Everything we know now is because a brave group believed they could make a new way. Lets not let their efforts and sacrifices be in vain. All we have to do is try.

      Aug 15 2013: This idea would be so huge if i knew everything that needed to happen but I do not and I don't mind that. If the whole change was only my ideas and what i wanted it would be unfair to some. This is an idea that everyone must contribute to and strive to achieve. I do believe everyone can make this change even though you do not. Society, as we know it, has taught us that there is not enough for everyone whether it be food, land, housing, power, control, ect. The list is endless yet everyday we see that there is more than enough for everyone. Why are people suffering if we can help them? They don't have money to pay for the help. Why do empty houses outnumber the homeless 5 to 1? Because they don't have money. Yes, money is a big cause of this but if we as people place it above other people than that is our own mistake. We have been molded into this as you said but that does not mean we cannot change. If history has taught us anything, it is that we constantly change. The change has been so little in the past century its astonishing. Our technology improved and we did not. We do have the power to make a better world. I, personally would start by putting the homeless in these empty houses. Think of all the shelters that could be helping other people or the people that work at the shelters that could do other things. Most of the homeless are not crazy, they just fell and no one reached out to help them up. I don't want to be left there and I doubt anyone would. Everyone needs help from time to time but when they are capable they will help someone else. It's the new circle. The circle of kindness or love or just karma. The second thing I would worry about is stopping outsourcing. How many people are jobless because a company wants to raise profits? I couldn't even imagine. I understand it helps those countries we outsource to, but at what cost to us. I hate money. I see the evil.

      This is my ideal world.
      Thank you Carolyn. My brains warm now :D
