Major changes are usually very slow primarily because they rely on massive new government spending or a transfer of money from rich to poor countries.
The secret to bringing about major changes is to overscript existing systems into what we want.
1. A United World of Provinces (WoP)
It is countries that make war, not provinces. As the world will unite sooner or later, any territorial gains from current wars will be rendered meaningless. Instead, how about we create a united a world of provinces, none so big as to be able to threaten the whole? Conflicts would be dealt through the International Court, and the world's militaries would implement its rulings.
The headquarters? The Old Vatican!
It would end the unending arms race and prevent it from spreading to space. The world would literally save trillions of dollars. It would also permit environmental initiatives that are much more potent but difficult to implement in a divided world.
For example, we could use, for example, the WEF or G20 as the first WoP Council. The tops of national bureaucracies could be overscripted as the new WoP government.
Uniting the world would bring international peace and massive savings in military expenses and in avoiding duplication in almost everything. For example, education could be digitized and centralized worldwide for core components.
Everything below would save the world billions of dollars and can be achieved with overscripts rather than additional spending.
2. The Aging Population Crisis & the Right to Die
By far the easiest way to handle the aging population problem is to give people the right to die. Palliative care is very costly and medical bills raise sharply up as we age. Many are already suffering and begging to go, but governments won't let them. The rest of us want the option if we have, for example, a stroke and face prospects of prolonged suffering or disabilities.
Fewer people on a planet with limited resources means more wealth per person. Any non-workforce person exiting makes us richer.
The math of population growth as a solution to the aging problem does not add up. More people makes us poorer and worsens environmental problems. As robots continue to replace labour, population growth will result in unemployment, not wealth production.
Worse, the unemployed have to be fed and supported, reducing the amount of money available for the elderly.
Here is the math:
Imagine a system with 3 working-age persons and 2 retirees producing together 20 pizzas per day. That would result in 4 pizzas each.
The Population Growth Scenario: A new unemployed worker is added. 20 pizzas now have to be shared between 6 people, leaving each 3.33 pizzas.
The Right to Die Scenario: One retiree is happy with his/her life and decides to exit. The 20 pizzas would now be divided in 4, resulting in 5 pizzas each, a shocking 50% more than the population growth scenario!
Overscript for the Ageing Population: The green pill.
3. A Guaranteed Work Wage Top-Up Strategy
A living wage has no chance of happening if done on the back of taxpayers or the private sector: Nobody wants to pay for it.
There is an infinite amount of work below the minimum wage.
A Guaranteed Work strategy coupled with a Wage Top-Up system could deliver a living wage at no cost to anybody.
Current unemployment/welfare departments would be overscripted into a Wage Subsidy system which would top up the hourly pay offered by companies.
To create an incentive for workers to choose the highest paying job (the more productive one for society), governments could top up the wage difference at a rate of 90%. For example, for a living wage of $15.00/h, a job paying $10.00/h would be topped up by $5.00 X 90% = $4.50/h. The standard living wage could be intentionally set higher to account for that, for example $15.50/h.
Compared to a welfare system where no work is done, society would make money from the goods and services produced which would allow for a living wage higher than current welfare rates. The system would deliver cheaper more competitive goods, increased productivity, etc.
Multiple social (reduced crime and drug and mental health problems) and individual benefits (guaranteed work, increased income, work experience, training, etc.) would also result.
Initially, many minimum wage jobs would drop to the sub market as it maintained pay artificially higher. However, this would only mean lower costs for products, which would benefit society and offset the top-up money shelled out.
Minimum wage made society poorer from the millions of work hours wasted.
4. Labour Peace: Merging the Interests of Labour & Capital
The stock market is the most communist system there is, labour owning the means of production. Communist countries killed tens of millions only to return to capitalism... all needless deaths.
Aligning the interests of business and labour could achieve what China aimed to do without any loss of life or liberty. The oft-proposed solutions are leftist schemes that do it at the expenses of business.
The following overscript offers a neutral transition to profit sharing and would have multiple benefits.
Step 1: Calculate the average profit over, for example, the last decade.
Step 2: Convert current wages to a profit sharing scheme.
Current Wage minus Average Annual Profit divided by 2 (e.g. 10%/2) = 95% (Fixed Salary)
Here is the result assuming an average annual profit of 10% and initial $20/hour wage:
The company that used to make 10% profits/year and pay its workers $20/hours would now pay its worker $19/hour (fixed wage) plus $1/hour (profit sharing). Any increase in profit would be shared 50/50. So would decreases, or they could be banked against future increases to keep salaries stable for workers.
Without paying workers a cent more, a company would rake in huge benefits from the elimination strikes and divisive wage negotiations, and from workers being more motivated and looking for efficiency because they share profits.
Another huge benefit is that a lower fixed salary ($18 instead of $20) would allow companies to survive down markets and cheap labour competitors more easily. Sometimes a lower wage is better than no job. A company that closes down is a huge loss of capital investment and jobs when these are most needed.
Everything below should be considered rough drafts and probably needing tweaking.
5. Bringing the Guillotine Back: Cutting Out the Aristocracy
Many countries elect politicians at three levels: federal, provincial/state, and municipal. Most of the backbenchers be replaced by civil servants.
The regular federal and provincial levels duplicate the representation already made by city councillors and are fertile ground for politicking and corruption. Furthermore, they are extremely expensive.
6. Genetic Deselection and the Elimination of Diseases
We could eliminate many genetics diseases within a few generations through genetic deselection. As a parent, wouldn't you rather give your kids healthy genes?
Healthy genes will probably become one of the most sought after commodities of the future.
Under Development... More details will be added later...
