If you could change one thing about society what would it be and why?

Kill the cancer that is news sensationalism that is otherwise reducing moderate-minded political thought processes and promoting "sport" and inflammatory ones in place.
At the very center of all bias in the news and misinformation is this, and even though it serves its purpose in motivating people to approaching the issue, often times that motivation bears little actual fruit and is mostly a tool of manipulation for political parties.
Destroy it, and all you'd have left is more central news that's pure facts and information.

I wish that our society could still be founded on morals,that ethnic minorities would be able to integrate into said moral society without the government stunting their growth and reducing them to cattle,that the drug war would have never been undertaken and that people would voluntarily refrain from using them once they were legal,that mexicans wouldn't have to cross the border illegally by the millions,and I wish that communism and the cold war never happened.

There are many things I would change about society,I can't really point to one.

"I wish that communism and the cold war never happened."

Have fun living in a world where the space race and other related competition never happened, and scientific endeavor in general is set back by about a decade. I honestly think the cold war was the best thing we as a generation living beyond it could have hoped for, since for the first time we could reap the scientific, political and social benefits of war without actually having to go to war.

TLR Cold wars are like getting shots, they're good for you.

If it wasn't for the cold war many of the problems were now facing on the world stage would be non existent,North Korea is a great example of that.

And as you said the technological gap would be a little less than a decade,I would trade that for a more stable world anyway,and going to the moon didn't really benefit humanity as a whole,besides knowledge about the moon i guess,but the average man wasn't effected by it at all.

Do you really see North Korea as a threat though?
User avatar #47109 to #47107 - thechurchchurch (09/07/2013) [-]
If you're asking if I think that North Koreas military is a threat,no. What is threatening is the instability between China,the USA,South Korea,and Japan.

If war breaks out america will undoubtedly back south korea and invade north korea,which will in turn cause China to intervene,which could also bring the Russians into it.

It's part of a larger issue,the same thing with Syria,other powers are at play here.

We'll see who's raughing when Kim single handedly causes world hunger by eating everything.

It was more than getting a guy on the moon. It was more about the journey. Dried food? Space race. Revamp of the education system circa 1950s? Space race. Satellites? Space race. Telemedicine (Stuff like pacemakers)? Space race. Increased public interest in astronomy? Space race. You like gaming? Thank NASA for your fancy 3D graphics.

To keep it simple, what happens in NASA doesn't always stay in NASA.

I understand NASA has created a lot of things that later extended into domestic products and things like that,but is there any evidence that suggests that we wouldn't have tried to go to the moon ourselves without political pressure? Right now we're the undisputed power house of the world yet we're trying to put people on mars. In fact,imagine if the world united to get to the moon instead of fighting with each other.

We may have had these things a few years later,but we'd also have a much more stable world,which would mean the USA wouldn't be forced to maintain such a large military and invade countries that threaten to tip the Post Cold war instability.

I put the advancement of the human race over its political stability any day, because in the end, preventing a few wars is temporary. Pushing humanity forwards is the closest thing we have to permanence.

Although maybe that's just me.

Human nature. Everything else comes after that as a matter of course.

Everyone accepts Jesus into their hearts. Then there will be no religious wars, everyone will be happy and nice to each other, and we can all move forward together at a rate never previously realized.

That the government would respect the constitution.   
   
because our freedom has been slowly eroding away for a few decades now
