Today’s Fantasy; Tomorrow’s Utopia
It is more a yearning than a fantasy that,
We live in a world free of wars, terrorism, violence, blood shed, religion induced fanaticism, and hatred in general.
The whole world be one large undivided country and people move from one place to another only with the intention of enjoying the freedom of travel and not with any intention to cause harm to the place they visit. I want all of us to be world citizens not of any one nationality or region. Like in India, if you ask a person from where he is, he will name his home town/state. There is no India anymore. One is a North Indian or a South Indian and further sub divisions, Sindhi, Marathi, Gujarati, Kannadiga, so on and so forth. Similarly in the US, one is Caucasian, Afro American, Spanish, etc.
Equal distribution of wealth: It is a crime that a few people have millions to their name while half the world sleeps hungry. How do these filthy rich people sleep or have peace of mind. They do contribute or dole out charity if only to save themselves from paying taxes but still have too much left over. One day Marxism is going to rule the world and I am afraid it is going to happen sooner than one would think.
People saying NO to products made with the skin of wildlife. Come on people, snakeskin bags? Leopard skin wallets? Fur coats? Does one really need these? If this happens, we can still save both land and water wildlife. Then again, Shark fin soup, Tiger wine……? How disgusting! Poachers should die a natural death because no one buys these things any more.
Till the world decides to change, may be I should hide inside my shell in some remote untouched part of the world and wait may be for a century or two till sanity prevails. Looks like I found my Utopia to hide: http://uua.net78.net/resorts/bayislands/utila_center/utila_info.htm
