I know there was a book I read that proposed the idea that I mentioned to my conservative politicking friend on his birthday last week. That being something along the lines of: how about if we split the GNP evenly between every legal citizen and freed up the need to work? a more complex and comprehensive idea, but, that is the gist. This must have struck a chord as I received an e-mail mentioning the craziness of this plan. Personally I think it would be awesome and even probable when the race matures; given survival and progress.
Yes, I am still an idealistic Utopianist despite my rough exterior.
