If I ruled the world:
I’d have a reputation based currency where prosocial actions that benefit a community’s interests raise an individual’s reputation with that group. People can raise their own reputation by doing favours for reputable individuals and organisations in line with the values of those entities. This would take the place of both commerce and politics and merge the two into a single system of reciprocity. People who build roads, for example, would gain positive regard from motorists and could expect a certain degree of reciprocal benefits from anybody who owns a car.
Prisons would be replaced with education facilities with practical courses on managing lifestyles without impacting on the rights of others. Basically, instead of telling criminals that they are Bad, tell them that they are simply at a lower level of development and help them to grow to a place where they can function within society.
The education system itself would also become less prison-like, with a focus on multiple intelligences (rather than Maths and English) and a framework and a goal of developing existing gifts to a level of specialisation and also raising areas of weakness to levels where they can adequately support areas of gifting. School grades and subject access would end up looking more like a computer game skill tree as competency in one subject opens new options for study and development.
Pain, sorrow, anger and all the other “negative” emotions would still exist, but society would learn to see them as equally beneficial and positive contributors to healthy lifestyle. Consideration of the shadow self would be normalised through movies and television shows sponsored by the People’s Republic of Jamin. Fear of the “other” would gradually be broken down. Racial differences, sexual differences, cultural and religious differences would all be accepted and embraced, while still being measured for values alignment.
All babies born in hospitals would be sterilised at birth in a procedure which could be reversed in later life after the individual has been means tested, childcare trained and obtained a parenting licence.
Mining of non-renewable resources would be capped at the current rate and mining companies would use free market economics to determine who could mine what and in what quantities. Any group or individual using technology which creates changes in the natural environment would be required to take responsibility for mitigating any damage caused at their own expense. Electricity prices would probably be temporarily inflated, causing research into genuine renewables to become commercially viable.
So… who is voting for me as global dictator?
