Reinventing government - what would it look like?
Simplify the laws. Make sure they are enforced. Simplify taxation. Make sure every cent collected is transparent (where it came from , how it got spent, who is responsible). Give people more power to choose what they want or do not want using online voting. People might say its a lot more complicated than that. I say, does it really have to be?

Wealth and power have been our conventional measures of success. What definition will better sustain us now and how can we move into it?
Hi Anita, Whenever I'm asked what defines success, I always remember a poster on the wall of my dentist's clinic... “Greatness is not found in possessions, power, position, or prestige. It is discovered in goodness, humility, service, and character.” – William Arthur Ward I always loved that quote and still remember it until this day. Unfortunately, what you said is the current reality. My daughter is in pre-school and I've seen parents who pressure their children to be at the top of their class. They are being taught to compete and compare with others at a very young age. For me, that is not how I measure my child's success. My goal for my daughter is to learn and just be the best person that she can possibly be. If she happens to enjoy learning and receive honors in the process, then that would just be a bonus. How can we change the current definiton? I don't really know but whatever it is, it will need some drastic improvements on the state of education and mass media. Have a great day to you and your mom.
