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!
