What Would You Do for Society If You Had All the Resources You Needed? (@TribeSteemUp Bi-Weekly Question)

I assume that what is meant by “resources” is financial instruments, rather than earth elements or personal skills.

I’ll also start from the premise that these financial resources are on a nearly unlimited level, similar to the Rothschilds or Rockefellers.    

And now to let the imagination run wild…...

I would, of course, as I do now, do everything I can to bring freedom into the world, and end slavery.    

In order for people to be free, they must have knowledge.  Obviously, people must willingly gain knowledge themselves.  However, by putting it in front of their face, literally, it might help galvanize things a bit.

So I would have the following knowledge resources translated into numerous languages:

Richard Grove with John Taylor Gatto conversation 

The Most Dangerous Superstition by Larken Rose 

Mark Passio’s Natural Law Seminar

And I would send this book and and those DVDs to at least a few billion people.     

I’d reach out to conscious creators and help them develop projects.    

Next would be to help build technological  tools to create abundance and independence so that the system of artificial scarcity and dependence we live under would dissolve.  

One stipulation about all of the following tech to get developed:

IT WILL ALL BE OPEN SOURCE

Most of these technologies would be focused on energy, food, transportation, and self-sufficiency........   

Develop technology to go to the stars. Anti-gravity, warp, etc.    

Advance 3D printing tech to more intricate levels and make it more user-friendly.   

Develop technologies such as “free” energy that Nikola Tesla was working towards.    

Have competitions for people to develop cheap and ubiquitous energy resources.     

Further develop hemp technologies.    

Fund deeper research into natural medicine and cures.

Start peer-to-peer trading platforms like Silk Road and Swarm City.

It would also be so fun and useful to show the illegitimacy of the current “free trade” system by completely overwhelming it.    

After building private airports and getting a fleet of planes and cargo ships……. 

I’d transfer goods via air and sea, criss-crossing the world from multiple angles, and when confronted at a "customs" inspection point at a seaport……. 

I’d completely ignore them and move the cargo in without paying a cent of their extortion fees.    

And all of it would be live streamed, with multiple redundancies in the feed so it would be nearly impossible to block.    

The objective here, of course, is to show how weak and illegitimate the authoritarian enforcers are.   

GOODS ARE MOVING ALL OVER THE WORLD, NOT GETTING STOLEN OR EXTORTED, AND YOU CAN’T STOP IT, AND IT’S BEING STREAMED LIVE.  AND IT’LL CONTINUE TO HAPPEN, BECAUSE THAT’S ONE THING THAT HAPPENS IN A FREE SOCIETY
 
Ok, that said, moving on….

I’d fund the creation of a platform for voluntary, decentralized protection against state aggression.  This would be sort of a cross between the #con network here on Steemit and the Cell411 app.

The basic objective would be that, when someone is being harassed by an agent of the state, a crowd of people can show up and peacefully defend the victim.    

Along the lines of food, I’d love to look into various food technologies such as aquaponics and aquaculture.

Aquaculture

Finally, I’d love to help create a voluntary community, perhaps even a seasteading one.

And that’s about all I can think of off the top of my head.  Feels good to dream, doesn’t it? 

Thanks for your time and attention!

Just say "NO" to slavery!

An interesting query. Yes I would like to think if one had all the resources available they would want to make society a better place. Yet most of those who have had access to such resources have wallowed in the abyss of corruption. Power can corrupt. One must have his spiritual heart in the right place to be responsible for such resources and power. One must also have the wisdom in choosing who he/she will call upon to help him in this beautiful effort. Thanks my friend for a intriguing topic.

Thanks for the comment Troy. Yeah, managing such a situation is a huge responsibility and requires wisdom. I have an odd feeling, though, that such a unique situation won't happen to me, so I won't lose any sleep over it. It is fun to think about, though. :)

That's funny. I started translating The Most Dangerous Superstition into norwegian just a few days ago

·

That's awesome!

Of course it feels good to dream, but many times dreams can come true. It was good how you took a general question to several specific answers. You and your genius in letters ..

Greetings my dear friend. By the way this is a new installment of our nerd friends and their team

Thanks. It's funny. Coming up with details for such a scenario was more difficult than I thought it would be.

Sounds like some good plans you've got there. Knowledge is the ticket indeed. Now off to get that money :D

·

Good to hear from ya. Knowledge is certainly the most important, which is why I put it at the top of the post.

Live streaming legitimate market activity - love it! Now you've got me thinking, too...

Wouldn't that be awesome?! It could have a huge, positive effect.
