If I was the Leader of the World

Updated on April 4, 2012

Things would Change

If I was the leader of the world things would be done much differently.

I would start by focusing all attention on ensuring access to clean drinking water and fresh food to world populations.

Education for everyone would be put into place. People would be educated in areas that interested them. The focus of education would change to recognize and develop skills that people naturally gravitate to and that are needed by society.

The monetary system would change into a barter system. The exchange of goods and services would replace the need for cash or credit. People's talents would be recognized and honoured.

Manufacturing would be very limited. The unnecessary products our world is filled with would be replaced with food production, health enhancement tools, and products that actually better the quality of life for the whole world and not just a few.

No more production of products that deplete our resources and strip the earth of its natural health and beauty. Respect for the land and water resources would be top priority. Nothing would be taken out of the earth without careful consideration of the state of health the damage would cause to the planet.

A plan for world self-sustainability would be realized.

The main focus of the populations and governments would be to care for the people, animals and planet, especially natural resources.

Our Water is Being Contaminated

Reality of Plastics

A Balanced Society

War would be no more. There would be no need for it to be a consideration.

All religions would be honoured: religion is a means of communicating to God. No one has the right to control how people communicate to God. Different countries, different locations use different languages to communicate to each other, there is no difference.

No violence would be tolerated. The time of hate would come to an end. The world needs to relearn to love and work together peacefully and it would be my goal to facilitate this new era.

I would work on realizing a more balanced society where the pressures are removed and living life would be about contributing positively to the life experiences of those that surround us and those that don't.

I believe that if people are loved, respected and challenged to help take action and contribute in a positive way, amazing things can happen. I would try to set the wheels in motion to unite the people of the world and make it a better place for everyone.

No one would go without and those that needed help would get it. Our sick, disabled, elders and motherless children would all be loved and cared for. There would be a place for everyone; no one would be homeless, there is no need.

There would be time for everyone to be happy.

If only I were the leader of the world ...

      Every week,I would go to Africa and see if they have lots of food, and if not I would give them more.

      and make sure the taxes are given to the people who need it. this is from a young girl of 10 years.

      @ James;

      I would replace the monetary system because even though it is a form of exchange there is too much of a huge imbalance - the entire world needs to be cared for not just the rich or those to be perceived as more valuable to our society because they hold the most cash.

      I would limit manufacturing to goods and services that are actually needed - to much energy and waste is spent on useless products that don't contribute to the actual survival of humans as a race - manufacturing would be focused on bettering the life of the entire population - not just a few who benefit because of where they were born.

      There would be no need for war because the world would be working together for the betterment of all mankind and differences would get smaller as balance was achieved.

      Glad you think it's an awesome dream though, and looking am forward to meeting up with you in heaven!

      Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts, I appreciate your point of view.

      This is a nice dream.

      You write, "The monetary system would change into a barter system. The exchange of goods and services would replace the need for cash or credit."

      Cash and credit are simply an advanced form of barter. If I make shoes and you want them; but you make butter, which I don't want; but Joe over there wants butter and makes kites, which I want; money is simply a way to make everybody happy. The advent of money is not sinister in and of itself. Money in fact produced modern civilization. You don't want to live in the jungle do you?

      You write, "Manufacturing would be very limited."

      "Manufacturing" simply means "made by man." Do you want to dress in skins and live out in the elements?

      You write, "War would be no more. There would be no need for it to be a consideration."

      Well, great. So when another Hitler comes along, what do we do? Just roll over and die?

      Your dream world is awesome. It is just not the one we are living in, nor will it ever be. You did describe Heaven quite well though. And that is where I will one day live for eternity.

      Thank you. :)

      @ Crea8tor: glad I'm not the only one, I think these kind of thoughts and attitudes need to be put out there into the universe so that more people can think this way.

      thanks for reading and glad you think it's a good dream!

      No, you're not the only one. I love a good dream. Much better than the nightmare we often live in. I'm not sure we'll ever see the light through the trees but this type of thinking would certainly offer a glimmer.

      @James; I believe in life if you don't throw the dart it can't land, so I put it out there, and as far as dreaming goes a good one

      @billy; I think we all need that reminder once in a while, thanks.

      @Kevin: the reason for the barter system is to change the way we look at the value we place on each other as human beings. We all have something to contribute, something special that makes us a unique puzzle piece in the bigger picture and I don't believe putting a price tag on people's head is a fair way to judge the worthiness of individuals, which I see as a major problem in today's society. Thanks for your input, it gives me more to reflect on...

      Worth reading if only as a reminder of the better things in life; nice job and a good topic. What I like best is it is original.

      It is just a dream, but a good one. Unfortunately this would never happen. At least your putting it out there instead of complain, complain, complain, which is what most people do. Vote up.

      We always want the best but in life, this only exists in dreams. It's very unfortunate. Good hubs!
