People in the defense and private security industry are frightened because they think: if war and crime are resolved, then they’ll have nothing to do and will be out of a job. While this is true, this bodes very well for the economy overall, as well as the standard of living. Because instead of destroying people and lives and property, these people can focus on BUILDING lives and property and making people happy. Of course there is less money in such endeavors – but that’s ok. Because they will have a lot less to worry about and can sleep easy at night.
Another concern is that a lucky few will end up reaping all the spoils of a utopian economy. But again, this is short sighted thinking. Because people will naturally be more generous and less competitive and destructive and greedy. It’s a strange paradox – but by encouraging libertarianism (capitalism and protection of human rights) you can actually bring about socialism. This is why I’m a libertarian – it’s the bridge to socialism. Socialism can’t be achieved directly because people are simply too envious and competitive and won’t work hard without a strong personal incentive and will instead undermine each other. This is why Russia and Venezuela are failing.
Anyway I think the future is bright. We fear that things will go to hell because of crises like terrorism and opiate addiction. However these are all manufactured by the government, and as the government shrinks these problems will disappear.
What is the point if not killing and raping each other? LOL – I like the way you think! We’ll be fine, I promise. 🙂

The other big problem is that many people are sinners and will fight tooth and nail to avoid being held accountable, and will therefore sow discord and confusion. This is the reason that so many are short circuiting these days – desperate, flailing attempts to execute their plans to take over the world. But again this is another thing I am very hopeful about – because people are forgiving and we can all move past each others’ peccadilloes. OK who’s with me???
(We are all sinners. At least, the ones who survived past childhood!)
“..people will naturally be more generous and less competitive and destructive and greedy.”
Wrong. That is NOT the natural state of man.
“– but by encouraging libertarianism (capitalism and protection of human rights) you can actually bring about socialism. This is why I’m a libertarian – it’s the bridge to socialism. ”
You obviously don’t know what a Libertarian is.
Your tears !! Hold still !!!!
When I say, “I promise” – of course I mean G-d promised. It’s a tongue-in-cheek reference to the Covenant of the Rainbow. I shouldn’t need to say this but Moses was banned from the Promised Land for a similar peccadillo. So I’m a bit sensitive to the matter.
