How to build our future without destroying the Earth ?
The root of the problem is that in order to run our society we have to exchange goods or services. It is a simple and primitive rule wich has been in place forever. Unless we replace this rule with more efficient ones, than we will have the rotten society that you live in today, and it will only get worse. If we replace this rule then every decision that we make would have to be in the interest of human kind and not for the single person. Oil companies, car manufacturers the drug cartels they all run based on the same rule. Can I suggest that we come up with a set of rules where exchanging is not required? Instead come up with a set of rules where the common goal is the survival and progress of human kind. For instance a rule could be that in a future world we should all give and get from society no one exempt. Can anyone suggest any more rules?

What other systems could society use, rather than a Monetary System?

Can you suggest a different or better rule/s to use in our society instead of the current exchange rule?
I understand your point Zac. Nevertheless I am not convinced that we need a system based on exchange in order to make our society work. We could instead give and get no one would be excluded from this rule. Everyone must give something or a service to society in order to get something back. I can think of 6 things that we should all get regardless of what we contribute to society. 1) Water 2) Food 3) Shelter 4) Medical care 5) Education 6) A mean of transport Can you think of something else?

Thanks for all your replies. Bartering or credit contracts are always based on the principle of exchanging something or services. I am instead looking for a rule or set of rules where exchange is not necessary. 1. you give, but you don't receive. i doubt you want that. 2. you get, but you don't give. it is luring, but where do you plan to get things if nobody gives? 3. you don't get and don't give. this is the neanderthal way of life, and not very pleasant. What about: 4. you must give and you must get ?? Why do we have to exchange goods or services in order to survive? Why cannot we support each other without exchanging?
