Laurie’s Blog – A box of Chocolates

[ 20/10/20 ]

Unfortunately, since going sugar free vegan I haven’t found a chocolate that is those things and tasty.

As to navigating life, its finding a balance between the many things that need to be done, and having a bit of fun along the way:
Making enough money to survive;
Doing something to care for the natural environment;
Doing what I can to influence social systems to deliver reasonable levels of security and abundance to everyone;
Talking about the overriding need for cooperation between diverse agents at all levels; and spelling out the dangers of fully competitive systems;
Trying to get people to think really deeply about the idea of freedom, and to become conscious of the levels of responsibility that necessarily accompany any new level of freedom, if it is to survive.

I have a long term vision of everyone having the option of indefinite life extension, and resetting their body “clocks” to their 20 something optimum; and having the resources to do whatever they responsibly choose – where the conversations around responsibility might at times be a little protracted.

Beyond that, I basically “wing it”, doing what seems appropriate in the moment.
