I Want to Rule the World!!!!

I got to thinking and decided the world would be a heck of a lot better if I ruled it. There will be no haves and have nots. No rich or poor. No 24/7 surveillance. No murder, rape, abuse, theft, battery or assault. Hugs will be compulsory. Taxes will never be more than 10 cents on the Dollar (or equivalent). War and conflict will be outlawed. Guns will be rendered useless and possession of one will result in months of contant ego massage, kissing and cuddling. Of course it['s all Utopian rubbish. But what's your manifesto for the world. Fantasy only please. No references to any politicians or political systems living or dead!

Step aside!!! I am going to be the next ruler of the world. The world is mine. All mine, I say. Manifesto?? I have no real plan of action. I want a pretty crown and nice clothes. I demand excellent sunny weather at all times. There will be no rain or snow ever again. Now off to my castle I go.

I've given this some serious though Mr Pike and after careful deliberation haven't come up with a conclusive outline at all. Maybe it's because I'm tired and cranky?What I DO know though, is that every man, woman and child globally should be provided with an unlimited supply of kippers, milk and prozac. I've covered starvation, thirst and bad attitudes this way, see! (And slowed down osteoporosis with all that milk too) Oh and all religious texts shall be amended to showcase Barney as the devil.

I always thought that there was something fiendish about Barney. It's all that purple rain. Maybe he should try some prozac. Kippers are good, poached in a little milk perhaps. Loch Fyne ones though. they are a darn close run with Arbroath Smokies, But smoking is not good for you - especially if you are a fish!

P1ke- Well, I'll be in charge of course! I'll have my personal man at arms beside me at all times, and he'll be a true master at arms. Everything will go back to the 16th century, save medicine of course, but we'll dress such as that, have pubs on every corner (ok, maybe just one in every town lol), and no one will own a car. Everything will be horses and carriages, or a good old walk. Each town will be self-sufficient so there is no need to go to the next, save to visit folks. Towns will be smaller than today, each one to have things within walking distance, so of course there will be several towns. There will be a true counsel of those learned men and women from every species who will meet once a full moon to discuss the states issues, deal with crimes (if there are any), and decisions about laws, etc. Well, this all of course comes from a game I designed many years ago for roleplaying, which left me in charge because I was the creator of the game lol. I think it's nice to think about what a good society would be like, but I know in reality we'll never have Utopia. Namaste-Anora

Cats would never get hurt or run over when they go outside to play. No cats would ever have to be kept indoors. Or dogs. Complete safety, and no mean people who like to do vicious things to animals. Children would never ever be hurt or abandoned or neglected. Schools would be fun, as well as supremely educating. Women's shoes would be free. And beautiful summer dresses would appear miraculously in our closets. ..........and there's a legal limit to the snow here, in Camelot.......

You can't rule the world. I'm older than you and I've got first dibs! However, if I did manage to attain such heights before you wrested power from my hands, I'd start by sending all illegal aliens and malcontents to the moon and end by putting into law the required subservience of all males on the face of the earth.

Hello, Pikefish! Oh... If I ruled the world, eh? Everything would be so different. There would be poor and rich. Yes, there would. And perhaps in larger dimensions, like two extremes. You are either extremely poor or extremely rich. You have either everything or nothing. It would be something like that, and I'd ensure that people would all have opportunity. I guess that would be my differential. The opportunities. If your parents are rich, this would not mean you are rich. You would be rich if you knew how to become rich. Vote me! Respectfully, Munhozmib.

We don't need all this violence, only love and fun! So I think that your idea is wonderful! If everyone were forced to love only then the world would be just perfect! If everyone had to love only they would have no choice but be happy and we could all live in peace forever and we would all live happily ever after!

I'm thinking more like Camelot: It's true! It's true! The crown has made it clear. The climate must be perfect all the year. A law was made a distant moon ago here: July and August cannot be too hot. And there's a legal limit to the snow here In Camelot. The winter is forbidden till December And exits March the second on the dot. By order, summer lingers through September In Camelot. Camelot! Camelot! I know it sounds a bit bizarre, But in Camelot, Camelot That's how conditions are. The rain may never fall till after sundown. By eight, the morning fog must disappear. In short, there's simply not A more congenial spot For happily-ever-aftering than here In Camelot. Camelot! Camelot! I know it gives a person pause, But in Camelot, Camelot Those are the legal laws. The snow may never slush upon the hillside. By nine p.m. the moonlight must appear. In short, there's simply not A more congenial spot For happily-ever-aftering than here In Camelot.

I would make war illegal. If two leaders have a dispute, they have to duke it out in a ring till one is knocked out. All children would have rings to wear that secrete birth control somehow and they only come off at the marriage ceremony-then they can get conventional birth control and choose when they have their children, if any. All domestic pets would be spayed, neutered before sale and any found intact would be confiscated and "fixed" unless their owners have breeding certificates. Pet food and care would be free. Old people would get their drivers licenses confiscated when they reach 70 and receive free transportation around town. Anyone convicted of molesting a child would be shot and killed so they could never do it again. Rapists would receive 2 years of intensive, mandatory therapy. Mothers would stay home with their children.
@p1kef1sh (45640)
27 Apr 09
You know, whilst I might wobble on the secreting of birth control, but I more than understand why you say it, there's not thing there that I couldn't disagree with. Excvept I am anti capital punishmment so I'd not kill child molesters. But send them to an island someplace where they can mess with each other and never escape.

I'm for capitol punishment for child molestors AND rapists. I do not believe that you can EVER give someone enough therapy to change them from wanting to do it again. But if there was a way to simply drop them off on an island where they could NEVER escape, I guess that would be good enough. But it would have to be foolproof. And they would have to fend for themselves. We shouldn't have to feed or support them in any way. Drop off some livestock for them to raise, that's it. We shouldn't have to raise, kill, cook and serve it to them.

P1ke's Utopia sounds like a lovely place to be - I'm preparing my citizenship papers for approval as we speak. I'm afraid I'd be a cruel despot if I ruled the world, as my personal hate is littering, and there would be lightning zaps from on high, picking off ANYONE who dared leave their detritus ANYWHERE in my beautiful world.
