Let’s thinks about what we can attain as a society. What things should be free and accessible for every citizen, provided by the government or the community?
Free and completely accessible to all humans:
- Healthcare, physical, mental, spiritual, for all ages.
- Education (For all ages, a free education society for everything from the basics, to politics, to technology.)
- Legal Representation
- Social Advocacy
- Disaster Relief or Support in States of Emergency
Can you add to the list? This may sound silly or strange to you, but I’m trying to think about what a Utopian society would look like. I think Utopia would be a republic and I think that capitalism can work, but there are standards of care for our fellow human beings that we should strive for. If we can identify these things and find a way to fund them, to encourage people to get into these fields and benefit from it in a real way, in the same way that they would be befitting society, I think that would be the first step.
I can’t save the world, but I’d like to think about what I’d believe if I could. What I can work towards. Could we get there? What sorts of things are being researched now that could help out? Its a very exciting conversation and I hope you’ll chip it.
