Such a vast conglomeration of minds here. Why don't we put them to good use & try to solve the world's problems. No issue is too big or too small so long as it pertains to humanity as a whole. Also no you don't actually have to identify as a hippy to respond. What shall we start with? Ahh yes how about the current financial crisis that is the modern era. Capitalism, where the rich get richer & the poor get poorer. Is there a better way to run the global economy than to use a "medium of exchange"? Is there a way to motivate people to work without the promise of a monetary reward?
