What if… ?

As far as philosophical and social goals go, how awesome would it be if as a civilization we completely and utterly disavowed all violent actions and instead focused our efforts on unlocking the potential and providing the fuel for dreams of every human being on Earth?

What if instead of spending trillions of dollars on Things That Go Boom, we instead spent that money on feeding, clothing, and educating the bottom 50% of the country?

What if we spent even a fraction of that money on Public Works projects like rebuilding roads and bridges, repairing dams, cleaning-up and policing toxic waste, and researching ways to do everything better?

What if we spent more time focusing on how to make each other happy instead of how to best one-up each other?
