Workable ideas for a better tomorrow anyone?


#1

Free American flags for some, a one-time cash payment for voluntary sterilisation for others. Really think population control policy needs to be implemented ASAP.

Universal basic income obviously - they’re piloting a scheme for the unemployed in Finland as we speak.

Free DAW for everyone to make sick beats.

A heavier financial penalty imposed on the press when they cross the line - i.e., implicitly calling for violent action against UK judges etc.


#2

Literally tomorrow - phone in sick
The general future - CWBAFT


#3

#4

Every wednesday = Cheese and Crackeers


#5

Full implementation of Rawlsian Justice as Fairness regardless of who wants it, or failing that implement everything in anarchy state and utopia

Just to see how bad it all gets

Wank


#6

get up earlier


#7

Pretending that last wutang album didn’t happen


#8

something tells me i’ll be hanging onto this article wondering what might have been come december, when the world is a nuclear wasteland.


#9

Ive started making a conscious effort to be really nice/more conversational to people who serve me.


#10

More bees - we need them for the excosystem, the more jobs in bee manufacturing are created, the stronger the economy. Simple, elegant.


#11

I’M DOING MY PART WITH MY AVATAR


#12

dictatorship of the proletariat
mandatory training sessions for people travelling on London transport


#13

I remember when I was a philosophy undergraduate and thought John Rawls was basically the 2nd coming of jesus.

great times.


#14

I don’t understand the first three


#15

I though that when I was doing an essay on Rawls, but now I’m doing one on Bernard Williams and so he’s now the second coming of Christ

Love some uni me

from the article it basically sounds like a few councillors who have no power or money to implement the scheme have said they’d like to do it anyway.

It really baffles me how in vogue this UBI thing is at the moment. Where’s the budget for it? How much would it actually be worth? Would it give people who are currently on benefits any more money than they get now? What effect would it have on the labour market? What effect would it have on inflation? What effect would it have on collective bargaining power? Why do we need to give rich people what is effectively a tax break? Would it do anything to stop employers paying shit wages? What changes to income tax would need to take place? Why not just tax rich people and end welfare conditionality?


#17

Discuss society in the language of power rather than morality. Agitate for revolution. Learn how to use a gun.


#18

Aye, everything but the last two.

E: so basically I like 1/3 of your ideas

Michael Jackson said it best:

I’m gonna make a change, for once in my life
It’s gonna feel real good, gonna make a difference
Gonna make it right…

As I turn up the collar on my favorite winter coat
This wind is blowin’ my mind
I see the kids in the street, with not enough to eat
Who am I, to be blind? Pretending not to see their needs
A summer’s disregard, a broken bottle top
And a one man’s soul
They follow each other on the wind ya’ know
’Cause they got nowhere to go
That’s why I want you to know

I’m starting with the man in the mirror
I’m asking him to change his ways
And no message could have been any clearer
If you wanna make the world a better place
(If you wanna make the world a better place)
Take a look at yourself, and then make a change
(Take a look at yourself, and then make a change)
(Na na na, na na na, na na, na nah)

I’ve been a victim of a selfish kind of love
It’s time that I realize
That there are some with no home, not a nickel
to loan
Could it be really me, pretending that they’re
not alone?

A willow deeply scarred, somebody’s broken heart
And a washed-out dream
(Washed-out dream)
They follow the pattern on the wind, ya’ see
’Cause they got no place to be
That’s why I’m starting with me
(Starting with me!)

I’m starting with the man in the mirror
(Ooh!)
I’m asking him to change his ways
(Ooh!)
And no message could have been any clearer
If you wanna make the world a better place
(If you wanna make the world a better place)
Take a look at yourself and then make a change
(Take a look at yourself and then make a change)

I’m starting with the man in the mirror
(Ooh!)
I’m asking him to change his ways
(Change his ways - ooh!)
And no message could have been any clearer
If you wanna make the world a better place
(If you wanna make the world a better place)
Take a look at yourself and then make that…
(Take a look at yourself and then make that…)
Change!

I’m starting with the man in the mirror
(Man in the mirror - Oh yeah!)
I’m asking him to change his ways
(Better change!)
No message could have been any clearer
(If you wanna make the world a better place)
(Take a look at yourself and then make the change)
(You gotta get it right, while you got the time)
(’Cause when you close your heart)
You can’t close your…your mind!
(Then you close your…mind!)
That man, that man, that man, that man
With that man in the mirror
(Man in the mirror, oh yeah!)
That man, that man, that man
I’m asking him to change his ways
(Better change!)
You know…that man
No message could have been any clearer
If you wanna make the world a better place
(If you wanna make the world a better place)
Take a look at yourself and then make a change
(Take a look at yourself and then make a change)
Hoo! Hoo! Hoo! Hoo! Hoo!
Na na na, na na na, na na, na nah
(Oh yeah!)
Gonna feel real good now!
Yeah yeah! Yeah yeah! Yeah yeah!
Na na na, na na na, na na, na nah
(Ooooh…)
Oh no, no no…
I’m gonna make a change
It’s gonna feel real good! Come on!
(Change…)
Just lift yourself
You know
You’ve gotta stop it. Yourself!
(Yeah! - Make that change!)
I’ve got to make that change, today!
Hoo!
(Man in the mirror)
You got to
You got to not let yourself… brother…
Hoo!
(Yeah! - Make that change)
You know - I’ve got to get that man, that man…
(Man in the mirror)
You’ve got to
You’ve got to move! Come on! Come on!
You got to…
Stand up! Stand up! Stand up!
(Yeah! - Make that change)
Stand up and lift yourself, now!
(Man in the mirror)
Hoo! Hoo! Hoo!
Aaow!
(Yeah! - Make that change)
Gonna make that change…come on!
You know it!
You know it!
You know it!
You know…
(Change…)
Make that change.
