Solving Global Issues

How to end Poverty: There was a time when a certain section of the society had to be poor to serve the rest of the society. This is made unnecessary today due to technology. Today, technology can do the work that used to be done by the poor section of the society. Accordingly, we ought to stop the multiplication of the poor in our society, as it no longer serves its purpose. No person should be allowed to pass on a poor lifestyle to his or her offspring. This is how we can end Poverty. We ought to require basic financial capability as a condition for any person to become a father or mother. This would ensure that all offspring born to them would be financially secure. This would ensure education, healthcare, proper nutrition and shelter for these offspring, which would in turn, ensure protection from Poverty for the offspring. Since we would require the same basic financial capability requirement from these offspring, if they wish to become parents when they are adults, their offspring would be immune to Poverty, too. In this manner, we would have successfully eradicated Poverty.

How to save the Environment: The reason why the Environment and consequently our survival as a race is under threat is that the earth is running out of resources to support our multiplying numbers. We know that it’s the poorest parts of the earth whose populations are the most difficult to contain. The poorest populations continue to triple each decade. Besides using more of the earth’s resources, they also will use the cheapest fuels and machines, which are also the most polluting. They will be unable to uphold environmental norms, because they cannot afford to. Laws or directives passed to enforce environmental standards may work to an extent in rich countries, but in poor countries, they are ineffectual. To save the environment, then, the sensible thing to do would be to stop the multiplication of poor, who cannot maintain environmental standards, rather than keep passing new environmental laws that can’t be enforced. The poor can reach a certain financial status at any time in their life, after which they cannot be considered poor. They are not doomed to live all their life as poor people. Once they reach that certain financial status, they can be allowed to multiply, because then they would be of less harm to the environment as they can then afford environmental protection measures. They would be able to afford the machines, fuels and technologies certified as environmentally safe. If they don’t use these environmentally safe fuels, machines and technologies as required by environmental laws, when they can afford it, then the law would be quite justified in punishing them, too. But instead, if the poor multiply and continue to be a significant portion of the earth’s population, who cannot use anything but the cheapest and most polluting machines and fuels, in order to survive, the destruction of the environment will continue and we will be left helpless to save the environment.

If and when the poor person reaches a certain financial status, at any time of his life, at which time he is no longer considered poor, only then should that person attain the right to produce offspring. Then the poor will no longer be multiplying. Offspring hence born, would be born to people with enough financial capability to live in an environmentally safe manner. These offspring would both learn the environmentally friendly lifestyle from their parents and be able to afford such a lifestyle. The basic financial capability of their parents would ensure education, healthcare and proper nutrition to the offspring, which would in turn ensure that the offspring wouldn’t be forced into poverty. If all nations on earth would require basic financial capability as a precondition for becoming a parent, environmentally hazardous machines, fuels and technologies that are commonplace today, could become things of the past. Environmentally friendly fuels, machines and technologies, though comparatively more expensive, could be made the standard. This is how we can save the environment. How wonderful it would be to see the earth returning to equilibrium as the burden on its resources starts reducing with the end of the multiplication of the poor! How much more safer would we feel in this world! Fewer people would have diseases caused due to pollution. Most importantly, the earth would stop retaliating with earthquakes, hurricanes, floods and other natural calamities.

How to eliminate disease and illness: Certain diseases can affect you even if you lived in a safe and clean environment, had perfect nutrition and were vaccinated against preventable diseases. But since most diseases are preventable, you could avoid them if you lived in healthy conditions. In the same manner, if the whole world lived in healthy conditions, we could eliminate all preventable diseases. For that to happen, every household needs money. Money is needed to protect the members of the household from disease and illness. Money is needed to live in a safe and clean environment. If we ensure that no one becomes a parent unless they have attained basic financial capability, we can be sure that the next generation will not be forced to contract preventable diseases and illnesses. We can be sure that the next generation will have access to the means to prevent and fight disease and illness. With this step, we would be gradually eliminating diseases and illnesses that are preventable, leaving more resources, money, time and energy to spend on finding cures or preventive measures for incurable diseases. In time, we could hence achieve a disease-free world.

How to eliminate crime: Many things cause crime: Hatred, poverty, envy, revenge, etc. Two things can prevent it: Better security for oneself and the end of poverty. If everyone were financially secure, there would be far less crime since people could both protect themselves from crime and avoid situations where they may be forced to commit a crime. Since most people in the world are not financially secure, those who follow moral values or fear the law are usually the ones who do not commit crime. Most people are willing to take chances with the law or to bend their principles. If everyone was made financially secure, on the one hand, inequalities would be reduced in all matters, reducing the need to commit crime, and on the other hand, personal security would be greater, reducing the possibility of a successful crime. We could make everyone financially secure by requiring basic financial capability as a necessary condition for anyone to become a parent. That would ensure that everyone born in future would be born into financially secure environments where they can develop into adults unthreatened by poverty, who can both secure themselves against crime and not have to commit any crime themselves. In this manner, we could eliminate crime from countries and from the world itself.

How to control the world population: Every human being is worthy of honorable treatment. He or she deserves to have his or her basic needs met and have access to the means to personal growth and productivity. We have an advancing technology to achieve this today, on the one hand. But on the other hand, we have a growing population. The latter overwhelms us so much that the former is proving inadequate, making honorable treatment for every individual impractical. Hence, the latter has to be controlled. The world population has to be controlled because we cannot both meet the basic needs of the individual and provide access to the means to his or her personal productivity and growth, which he or she rightly deserves. The solution is to ensure that it is possible not only to meet the basic needs of a human but also to provide access to the means to personal productivity and growth. We can ensure that this is possible before a person is born if we required basic financial capability by law to become a parent. This would ensure honorable treatment for the child to be born. This would ensure that the basic needs of the child born are met and that the child will have access to the means to personal productivity and growth. This would ensure not just survival, but also personal growth and productivity, through honorable treatment. This would also ensure that not more humans are born than the ones to which the right conditions for growth and productivity are available. This would ensure that not more humans are born than can be sustained by the existing technology and earth resources, hence controlling world population. This is how we can control the world population.

How to prevent a World War: If we are not concerned about the little wars we fight among ourselves, a third world war is inevitable. As stated in the UN constitution, it is in the minds of men that the groundwork for wars are laid. If we are not concerned about the regional wars fought between nations, a third world war is inevitable. If we do not care enough for people in other nations, a third world war is coming. As long as we care about other people in other nations and continue to know them better each day, we are averting the possibilities of war. As long as boundaries between nations, cultures and societies continue to crumble each day, as is happening today, we will be safe from wars. As long as there is communication, understanding and respect between the leaders, and more importantly, between the peoples of nations, there will be no war between those nations. If the people of different nations know each other, celebrate each other’s successes, support and help each other through problems, living as though they were one nation, the leaders of these nations would dare not make war upon each other. But if the people in these nations were indifferent towards each other or hated each other, the leaders wouldn’t hesitate to make war.

How to solve the unemployment problem: Make sure that no one is born into poverty. The cause of unemployment is that people who are not needed, exist. These people learn a skill or trade to earn a living, whether or not that skill or trade is required in society. If it is not, then they become unemployed. They do know which skills are required and which are not, but financially they are ill-equipped to learn the skills that are in demand. Which is why it is important to ensure that no one is born into financial insecurity or poverty. We can do that if basic financial capability is made a legal requirement to become a parent.

How to provide special aid and protection to all physically and mentally challenged people: To provide for every underprivileged person is not possible today. When we are scarce in resources we cannot hope to. Only when we do not let the population grow unsustainably, can we let the underprivileged live with dignity. The same goes for the handicapped and all people with disabilities. To give them a fair life will not be possible till the nation ensures that the rest of its population is always self-sustaining. Its not a favor that we are doing the underprivileged or disabled person, it’s ensuring his or her right to live with human dignity. Before each person is born, it must be ensured that the resources for his or her survival and growth are available. If we succeed in doing this, the person born would have his or her basic rights and needs successfully met, whether the person born is mentally or physically challenged or not. Once we succeed in doing this, only then can we mobilize resources for special aid or protection. When we are unable to meet the basic needs of people, whether challenged or not, we cannot hope to provide the extra special aid to all those who need and rightfully deserve it.

How to ensure that all the people in the world get three square meals a day: No one should be born into poverty. If people are born everywhere, as if they have no value at all, then they will have no value at all. They will not be provided magically with food, shelter and education. But if these necessities of life must be present when they are born, then we must ensure that they are not born unless the necessities of life are available for them. We cannot create the necessities of life out of nothing. They are finite resources unless we find a way to make them infinite. If we ensure that no one is born into poverty, then we can at least ensure that no one will have trouble obtaining basic necessities during childhood. Every child will have three square meals a day. Since there is enough for every child existing at that moment on the planet and since there will be enough for every child to be born in future as well, the earth will have just the number of people that it can sustain at any given time. Then, the earth will be able to provide enough food for the survival of all these people inhabiting it. Hence, we can ensure that all people in the world get three square meals a day. The reason why some get all the food they need and more while most others do not and too many of them actually starve is the lack of money in the hands of the ones who do not get the food they need and the wretched poverty of the ones who starve. If everyone were born into basic financial capability, they would have a good measure of protection against this from happening. They would be better able to get three square meals a day. Therefore, we need to first ensure that basic financial capability is made a legal requirement to become a parent, i.e., to produce offspring, so that the children born in future would not be among the starving millions who already inhabit the earth.

How to ensure that the benefits of scientific progress reach all people: We simply cannot sustain the existing human population. We cannot fulfill their basic needs like food, shelter and clothing. If we are not able to do this, then will we be able to provide them with the benefits of scientific progress, namely modern conveniences and health care? No, we won’t be able to. To ensure that everyone on planet earth is able to enjoy the fruits of scientific progress, which is the right of every member of the human race, we should not allow there to be more humans than those that can be provided with the fruits of progress. We should ensure that no one produces an offspring (i.e., become a parent) unless he or she has the means to provide that offspring with the fruits of human progress, namely basic modern conveniences and modern healthcare. In other words, every person wishing to produce offspring must be required by law to meet a certain level of financial capability before they become a parent. Hence, we’ll be able to ensure that every human being on earth will be able to enjoy the fruits of human progress.

How to secure animal rights: A dog without a home. It lives on the streets and sleeps in the mud. On one rainy day, it decides to sleep on the front steps of a house. In a prosperous country the occupants would most likely say: “Poor dog without a home. We could probably take care of it.” But in a poor country, it is the last thing they would ever say. Most likely, the dog would whine and yelp as it is being kicked out of the house, without the slightest sympathy or mercy. Why the difference in the responses? Why is one response sympathetic, while the other apathetic? Is it that people in developed countries are by nature more sympathetic or knowledgeable about animal rights while people in undeveloped countries are not? Or is it that in developed countries people are affluent enough to spare some food and shelter for a homeless animal while those in third-world countries do not have enough for themselves and so cannot even begin to think about providing food and shelter to a homeless dog? Obviously, the latter is the truth. To secure animal rights, enacting laws or educating people would be in vain, if the people themselves do not have their own basic rights secured. When the rights of humans are not secured, we cannot hope to secure the rights of animals. The laws that need to be enacted and enforced in order to protect animal rights are not animal protection laws, but human being protection laws. As long as human beings do not have their basic rights fulfilled, it will never be possible to secure animal rights.
