So, at some time, in the distant past..say 2000 years ago(?)....

Recommended Posts

....people, miraculously,  all (99.99%?) decided to defend themselves against tyranny. They educated their young, they were allowed to use as much force as was needed ONLY to defend themselves and others.

The young were also told, although property they acquired by work, talent & good fortune belonged to them ....... the land could (and should) not be owned.

People and land could not be owned by other people.... But people were completely free to trade, but must not cause harm nor loss to others.

 

What would life be like today.....if the above had been implemented years ago??

Just a thought experiment ..... reserve the right(?) to reword it according to any suggestions? :)

Looking at Communism/Left Libertarianism. I think plagues would have periodically wipedout mass numbers of the population. Until.

End up with something like off the movie "Avatar" PANDORA. Consequently it is also Pancake day/Shrove Tuesday, today. Pan being the God of everything. Also ROYGBIV (Ancroynm for ElectroMagnetic Spectrum) kind of Pantheisitc in nature, used to have that mentioned a lot at school, "pft yeah I've only heard that for like the 100th time now."

For such a scenario to even be acheived imho, high conscientiousness would have to be decreased from a population, while IQ would have to be increased. An executive brain (high Conscientiousness) being more efficient, though not necessarily more effective than a low conscientious one. Though economy on space is important.

High Conscientiousness: Farms, Lawns, Husbandry, (Grey, White, Black), Order
Low Conscientiousness: Orchards, Hunting, Meadows, Multicolours, Chaos.

I forgot to say / ask of the honesty of fiat money creation. If money is (or should be) an accurate record of account of trade... a contract(?)

Richard, I was wondering, would (dis)honest money be high or low conscientiouesness, as opposed to fiat thin air credit 'money'?

I was thinking perhaps Bitcoin et al, where they can not (?) create other records of account from thin air...... given that it is said no more than 21million Bitcoin will be 'produced'.

Edit:- This to be added to the thought experiment ie This type of A system of accurate money was implemental years ago.
