How to tell a story

How to tell a story

Sunday, May 22, 2016


The older I get, the less I believe in democracy. Democracy depends too much on an educated, wise citizenry, and majority rules too easily ignore the needs of the minority.

I believe in individual freedom with responsibility.

I would like to see a form of benevolent dictatorship with optional levels of social and political participation: short term contracts that define how one participates in society.

A poet contract, for example, would provide the option of a minimum livable govenment-provided income. No taxes, no voting, no wealth, no responsibilities.

A "worker" option would be close to the present with opportunities for greater luxury. However, there would be a maximum allowable income. There also would be a minimum allowance for everyone.

People could change their options contract to contract.

In other words, choose your lifestyle, and make meditation-driven activity and dropping out perfectly respectable.

The goals are freedom and flexibility ... with greed limited by law.

Not in a million years!
