A comical social experiment that would solve many problems in society
This is completely theoretical, and I find it quite comical to think about, but I cannot help to think that it is mostly true. I believe Adam and Eve had it right the first time! This has nothing to do with the Bible or religion, but instead involves something we deal with everyday. Clothing. If we as a planet and society were to magical change to a society that did not have clothing at all I think that society would be much better than ours. Think about it. Every day people strive to wear the best clothing, to look good. Many world problems are centered around power and sex sadly enough and clothing allows people to be manipulated (power) and judged (sex). Stereotypes can be derived by the way people look, and clothing is actually the fastest and most effective way to communicate to everyone around us. It is the first thing people notice and usually the only thing when it comes to passing strangers. At the speed of light (literally) people observe, analyze and judge each other based off what they wear. Clothing shapes first impressions and allows government and institutions to invoke prejudice among the people. Some cultures, like Saudi Arabia, base many of their laws off what people, mostly women, can or can't wear. People spend billions of dollars in the US alone buying Se7ens instead of Old navy brands, just to show off to everyone that looks at their rear end and let them see the big "7"s across it...If everyone were naked there would be nothing to hide. Their bodies would be open to everyone and there would be less pressure to achieve certain body types. Everyone would be the same and different at the same time. No more hiding the truth behind all those clothes. Although this is a crazy idea, and it will never actually happen, I find it amusing realizing the humor in our demise...
Plus...think how much better it would feel to ride a bicycle, "freely" :D haha
