The world used to be such a peaceful place. There was the odd war, the odd stabbing or the odd shot fired. Life was happy, people loved each other and a quick toke solved any problem. These days, walk down almost any street and you feel unsafe. Turn on any TV or open any paper and you could be forgiven for believing that World War III has broken out.
That’s got me to thinking about how to save the world from itself, how to bring about peace and I’ve come to the conclusion that we can do it. My plan is a little on the radical side maybe but it’ll work.
Number One – Legalize marijuana across the whole world
Can you imagine what that would do the world? If everyone was allowed to smoke marijuana legally, the world would be a far out, laid back place to be. No arguments, no chaos, no shootings or dropping bombs on each other. We would all be more mellow and happy.
Number 2 – Get rid of organized religion
Whoa, I’ll probably get shot down in flames for saying that but think about it – virtually all wars are started in the name of religion. There will always be an element of non-believers or those who have their own take on the bible, God, or whatever you want to believe in but if you banned organized religion, well the wars would stop because there wouldn’t be anything to fight about.
Number 3 – Get rid of money
They say money is the root of all evil. Get rid of it and there wouldn’t be any evil, right? No more robberies, no more wars, no more Civil Rights movements and all that other good stuff that’s caused by money.
Number 4 – Create something we all need and that won’t run out
Food, water, shelter – the three main concerns that everybody has. Create a solution that never ends and the whole world will be a happier place. Not sure what yet but I’ll think of it sometime, another day.
Number 5 – Take power away from the governments
Some of it anyway. Let’s face it; it’s the world governments that cause the most upset. It doesn’t matter what they do, what they say, what laws they pass, it isn’t going to please everyone. We all have our own thoughts and feelings on things so take some of the power and the control away from the governments and we’ll all be happier with easier lives.
Let’s face it, the world isn’t happy, neither are the people not like we were in the 60’s, in the times of free love and peaceful days. Some say the hippies were just drugged up idiots, a bad example to the youth of today. Hah! Like we could possibly set any worse an example. At least we were happy, we didn’t start fights, we didn’t go around stabbing or shooting each other. We didn’t dare each other to do stupid things and we certainly didn’t cause the trouble in the world today.
