    That people must be trained in school or somewhere to learn to be actively friendly and helpful and it’s seen as weird to not say hello to people or engage with others in the street/bus/life in general.

    i always approach people in the street and say hello and introduce myself, I did it today a lot and I like to show people how rude others can be. It’s amazing how many people are freaked out by a friendly ‘hello’.. it’s quite sad really.

    Met some legends through it today, I luuuuv itttt :bounce_fl

    I would pass a law to make me El Presidente of the world so I could rule with an iron fist!

    Legalise all drugs. Controversial with some admittedly, but it makes sense & ends this fake ‘war on drugs’ that governments come out every now & then & say they’re losing. If they’re losing it, then they’re being outthought by people on drugs – who evidently must be some pretty clever folk to outsmart entire governments & security forces!

    A law that would mean I rule the world with a communist hand, and that nobody could over throw me, also it would mean that Simon cowell is tried for crimes against humanity.

    Also, I would cut tax rates for lower earners, hike it for the rich and sink any non British fishing vessel found in our waters.

    in Oriental nations what prevents this is more lack of space/logisitics than cultural issues. Although hugs and touching are normally reserved for very close friends/relatives/partners, many Chinese and other Asians are actually very community minded and friendly towards their neighbours. In Malaysia everyone who is a bit older than you must be called “Uncle” or “Auntie” irrespective of whether you are related to them or not.

    Since no one has said it yet i’m gonna say it. All Local/borough councils are to designate areas of land with electrical, toilets and water supplies, for free use for anyone who wants to use then for free partys. Each council is to have at least one community warehouse, or plot of land for party use.

    LOL I know man. I was gonna write something about me having a selfish law to only benefit me and my friends. I really was thinking of saying that the world would be free roam for anyone. No passports no migration checks nothing. But then I thought I would like a party.

    All pretty good ideas.

    I can’t help thinking that adding one new law without changing any of the others isn’t to change much… hmm…

    … how about a law that enabled any adult to do the right thing, regardless of the law, if they could show good and reasonable excuse for doing so?

    Now you might think this is actually already a statute. It isn’t. Instead every case is heard in isolation, without a proper record, enabling the UK legal system to do whatever the hell it wants to.

    Only trouble is right isn’t a black and white thing so i’m not sure how’d you plan to go about trying to enforce people to do the right thing. common law already tries to prevent harm/loss/fraud I’m not sure how much deeper you can go… care to explain?

    I saw some of it. It wasn’t what I expected. I was thinking it was going to be something along the lines of american pie, but it was very offbeat and not tacky to my surprise. I need to see the end of it really cos I haven’t seen that bit.

    No, I wasn’t on about forcing people to do the right thing. Only letting them do the right thing if they can actually justify it as a reasonable act.

    See, the flaw is, right now we just “punish” people who do “criminal” things. Only if you get caught, do you get punished (and if you’ve got the right background, you can just walk out of the court for the vast majority of civil offences involving disputes over money). SO people are highly motivated NOT TO GET CAUGHT – but they are not motivated to DO THE RIGHT THING.

    Here’s a different model – people who do “criminal” things don’t get punished. They get sectioned. And treated. And rehabbed. So they are equipped to live without doing “criminal” things. They don’t get a fixed term sentence, they get released when the community is happy that the sectioned individual can make it as an unsectioned individual.

    As things stand, we just stick a different label on the front page of “The Government” every few years and generally leave that as a model for self empowerment.

    What a lot of tosh. Here’s a different idea – let’s build a business empire that actually does the social things (like refuse, waste, transportation and communication) without economic profit as the ONLY force, but with ECOLOGIC as the primary force. Cost is a factor, but the assumption that lowest financial cost = best social benefit EVERY SINGLE TIME, is clearly a dead end.

    Literally, a dead end. Disposable consumerism is a real and present danger to people. Always has been. If people see themselves or other people as disposable, that is a sympton (not definite, but an indicator) of some form of psychopathy. Very rarely do such tendencies manifest as actions without a stress trigger. People’s psychotic behaviour depends on psychotic damage that has already been inflicted on THEM.

    In these current economic times, it would appear the banksters are keen to pull on every single stress trigger that they can reach a finger to. Everybody poor fights each other, the rich laugh all the way back to the bank.

    the thing which confuses me is stuff like drugs and other such crimes. some people would see me doing a drug as wrong, others wouldn’t. so for that one for example some people will perceive different things so would it be right for me but wrong for someone else to do it if it was against what they thought was right? i’m not sure how your model could go about.

    Well, the model itself is not enough. What I have to do – what I really do feel the need for – is to work out HOW to go from a capitalist oriented class based society to a meritocracy WITHOUT having a revolution in the process.

    I’ll get back to you when I’ve written it down, OK?
