Quora question on improving society

If you were 1 of 30 people given the responsibility to improve today’s world by each of you choosing to remove a different person from it, who would be your choice? (Only 1st 30 picks here accepted, prior to (us) creating a new world without them.)?

[ 13/June/22 ]

An utterly inappropriate question.

None is my answer.

The problem is not people, it is the strategies and understandings they are using.

If we are to have any chance of long term security and freedom, then we need to respect the lives of all individuals.

Some strategies are not survivable, or appropriate, and agents employing such strategies may need to be restrained until they can see the error of their ways – but eliminating the agent is not an option – not if security for any is the desired outcome.

A failure to understand that is a failure to explore the question to sufficient depth.

About Ted Howard NZ

Seems like I might be a cancer survivor. Thinking about the systemic incentives within the world we find ourselves in, and how we might adjust them to provide an environment that supports everyone (no exceptions) with reasonable security, tools, resources and degrees of freedom, and reasonable examples of the natural environment; and that is going to demand responsibility from all of us - see www.tedhowardnz.com/money
