Section 4 of 17
AS A WORLD-WIDE CIVILIZATION, WHY DON'T WE DO EVERYTHING THAT WE NEED TO DO, WHEN WE KNOW HOW TO DO IT?
Another part of the vision concentrated on this general idea. Some of the enormous number of things within this are, for example:
If we technically know how to cure any particular disease, or at least know how to treat it so that people are somewhat comfortable and can live with it as it is being treated and dealt with on a regular basis, up to the full present limits of scientific and medical know-how, why don't we do it for everyone who is afflicted with it? -- and there are many hundreds if not thousands of these diseases.
If we know how to feed everyone, why don't we?
If we know how to decently house everyone, why don't we?
The main and bottom-line answer to the above samples, as well as to the many, many more that are not listed here, is, just to paraphrase in quotes a portion of my vision, and the actual reality that we live with as a whole humanity, the following:
"That we can't afford to, we don't have the money, we simply can't pay for what needs to so desperately be done in so many quarters, even though we know how to do so much of it."
In my way of thinking, according to the vision that I had and live with, is that the world would be ignorant to continue in this fashion now that it has a starting-idea and plan to explore and develop until it becomes a smooth and do-able working reality that should be implemented. So read on, and see what the basics of this new way to go are, so that you can then ponder over it yourself and with others.
