Some of my last few posts have been angry tirades upon the stupidity permeating society. To be fair, I have decided to write this post which will contain my solutions for the problems I see, phrased in a positive light. This is a work in progress. Many of these ideas might not work. Most will. Enjoy.
To me, the largest problem facing the United States, is people having children even though they are neither ready nor capable of doing so… well. This causes a cycle of unfit parenting. What I propose is a school. This school (or schools) will teach you not only reading and writing, but also logic, common sense, deductive reasoning, etc. All the traits I think are necessary in civilized society. It will be a boarding school. The goal is to take the children out of these unhealthy environments and offer them a new environment that promotes their intellectual growth. After 20 years or so, the students will be fit to raise healthy intelligent children. I’d also like to start a kind of draft, where once you have graduated you are required to spend 5 years passing this information on. You become the new teacher.
To encourage parents to willingly give their children a better life, I will offer some sort of incentive. Let’s say no income tax while their children are in school. During this time, these parents will have time to attend my free therapy, rehab, and education programs to teach them how to be better parents and have a better life.
Next, we, as a nation, need to SERIOUSLY deal with birth control. We need to find a way to stop people from reproducing. I want to mandate that all people have some form of long lasting birth control. I love the idea of the IUDs. I wish there was a male version. In any case, having children should be a privilege, not a right. You should PROVE that you can raise children BEFORE you have them. If you are an unfit parent, who has to pick up the pieces? Society. We are the ones that have to deal with the crimes and waste of space people of whom you can’t take care. The problem is that when you are an idiot that has a child, they become idiots also, since you can’t give them the intelligence you don’t have, and then they have their own idiot children.
Why does this country not help its citizens with housing? Have you seen Compton? What about all the trailer parks? Let’s create a national project, where everyone chips in to build houses. Eventually we’ll build your new house. No more “low rent” districts. Everyone gets a place to live AS LONG AS THEY PARTICIPATE.
Finally, garbage. I have noticed that the larger the city, the more trash on the streets. Makes sense. Let’s do something about it. I have long advocated paying the homeless to keep the streets clean. They just have to pick up trash, remove graffiti, etc and they get food and a place to stay. If they decide they don’t want to live on the streets anymore, they can attend one of my free therapy, rehab or education programs.
Well, those are some of my ideas. I think that within two or three generations, we will be in a much better place as a nation.
