I'd rather have that 48 minutes of my life back.

No worries Solitary, one day the capitalistic dominant controlled media will have to adress and confront The Zeitgeist Movement and along with it The Venus Project and many more people will begin to realize that the greatest destroyer of ecology the greatest source of waste, depletion and pollution the greatest purveyor of violence,war, crime, poverty, animal abuse and inhumanity, the greatest generator of social and personal neurosis, mental disorders, depression, anxiety not to mention, the greatest source of social paralysis stopping us from moving into new methodologies for personal health, global sustainability and progress on this planet is not some corrupt government or legislation not some rogue corporation or banking cartel not some flaw of human nature and not some secret hidden cabal that controls the world.

It is, in fact: The Socio-Economic System itself at its very foundation.

It's Utopian.  The only problem with Utopianism is the people.  We'd need to redesign the species in order for it to work.  Otherwise, it's a great idea.

the problem with humanity is people
A humans desire to live is exceeded only by their willingness to die for another. Even god cannot equal this magnificent sacrifice. No god has the right to judge them.-first tenant of the Panotheust

It's just greed. It's the basic thing that destroys all attempts to make a world suitable for everyone. The inhabitants don't give a fuck about "everyone".

If everyone was as intelligent as Tesla, Einstein, Hawking, Feynman, Bertrand Russell, and other great scientist, I think it would work, however, we as humans, for the most part, love competition to the point of bringing out the worst in people. So I don't think it will ever happen. And as resources dwindle and the population keeps growing we will come to a point we will be competing just to get a drink of water, if a third world war doesn't kill almost every life form accept bacteria's and viruses. And any humans that did survive would be fighting with stick and stones while a shaman preys for them.  :cry:  Solitary

While it sounds good in theory to take care of everyone, greed will take over. We already have people on welfare that refuse to work and just hold up their hand. Many have a criminal carreer on the side for extra income.

That'll only get worse.

This kind of thinking irks me because of how self-defeating it is.

The status quo perpertuates more easily due to lack of education of any other way of allocating resources or societal sustainability, than it perpetuates itself based on some non peer-reviwed made up belief that only a new genetic organism can exist in a altruistic world.

Or to put in another way as Gabor Mate said:

Even worse is when it is mentioned time and time again about how assassinations, coup d'etats, and a major coverup or two, maintains the established dominant power-base, thus paralyzing any thought that is not the norm.
