We conceived of a new form of political, economic and social structures where the metrics would be their benefits to the larger populace.

What if through today’s global interconnectivity we could devise what an effective government should look like?

Ditto for Economic, Judicial and Social governance.

What if we then mapped it onto our local cultural strengths and then through symbiotic relationships we strengthened our global reach?

What if we sought mediation in wars not by sending high-powered self-centered delegations people with agendas but sent out little children and families, youth and artistes, engineers and doctors, social groups to meet with their counterparts?

What if the food futures investment analysts trade room projected with each profit tick the look of the child and its mother in drought-stricken, war-torn regions?

What if we sent environmental decision makers with their families to see the polar bears struggling to survive or the despair of the farmer struggling to survive?

What if ….

There still may be a possibility of changing the world, our world.

Have you seen Ron Paul's What if Speech on you tube?

No, but it is an exercise in crystallizing one's ideas and articulating a concept.

What if the American people elected someone into the office of president that would actually follow the Constitution?

It could be the answer after a multitude of what if's have been asked.

I'm interested in hearing what just one of those additional "what ifs" that you refer to.

I say "just one" because I enjoy the shorter "back and forth" that can then build into a larger, longer discussion.

What if we could have necessary urgent changes implemented immediately?

What if there is an international yearning for peace that goes against the powers that be?

What if there are wrongs to be set right?

What if everyone is rooting for the same cause but there is that something missing to garner these into action…

What if ….

Rather than this be a monolog or a dialog, I leave this to all for now :)
