I think some people may be somewhat satisfied with today's economic, social and political systems but I know for a fact some of us want change. The question is what should change, how should it be changed and what is the ideal result?
This is a discussion focused upon the Socioeconomic side of the equation.
I personally have bought into the idea that our current system and it's monetary focus(profit) is a big part of the problem. There was a time when monetary focus was beneficial and in some ways it still is but in many ways it has served it's purpose and it's time to transcend a focus on Profit.
It is interesting to note that the medical and pharmacutical industry rely on people being sick and that a growth or increase in revenue in that industry implies an increase in sick people or that people keep returning. This is a side-effect of a focus on profit.
It is interesting to note that alternative sources of energy, and green technology are not fiercely pursued when man and the environment supposedly need it. Again... it is not good for certain businesses to have competition in those areas, and the technology and advancements in said area are costly in the beginning.
If Quality of Life was the focus of the system then profit would be a by-product assuming it still had relevance in the new system. Quality of life would mean the higher the numbers of healthy people the better. It would mean the more self-sufficient, clean and safe the environment the better. It would mean pursuing new technologies without regards to making a profit, but rather a focus on what they can do to increase quality of life.
As good a place to start as any. What do you think the Ideal Socioeconomic system would look like?
Discuss and keep it civil.
