...to admit that I don't have a clue how to run the world.
But what I could do is create a pretty savvy, forward-thinking, and progressive group to take care of straightening things out.
I'd need to hand pick a team of consultants.
You know, a group of experts on things like the environment, disability rights, equal opportunity, trade relations, the economy, anti-racism/sexism/genderism/ageism, etc.
I'd screen them scrupulously to make sure they held common values.
Our goal would be: to cultivate harmony by removing barriers that prevent loving kindness.
These consultants wouldn't be paid unwarranted salaries.
In fact, these would be voluntary positions.
The world's gratitude and their relative autonomy would be reward enough.
It wouldn't be cult-like. No crazy pep-talks or strange routines to keep people going.
Our group would be task-oriented, talking about AND doing things.
Oh, and there'd be no palaces or gated properties in my queen-dom either.
Would all this work? Who the hell knows.
All of this is just pretend shit anyhow.
Sometimes I'm a bit of an idealist,
hoping that we could all just live in truth,
recognizing that we are all no different from one another.
