Easily the finest example of illogical wannabe Politically Correct ‘thinking’ I have ever seen.
We should have these people stuffed …
But first, your backgrounder:
To drive that, a Swedish risk specialist and philanthropist is offering a $5 million prize for the best idea to create a new international decision-making system capable of tackling the world’s intractable issues, from extreme poverty to the spread of nuclear weapons and growing environmental damage.
“Today’s risks are so dangerous and so global in their nature that they’ve outrun the international system’s ability to deal with them,” said László Szombatfalvy, who fled from Hungary to Sweden in 1956 as a refugee, and later made a fortune in the stock market.

SEE THE POINT
Okay, Clue Time: some great philosopher once murmured to the effect “think in other dimensions.” Some other genius growled to the effect “if you keep on doing the same old thing ya gonna keep on getting the same old results.” Duh.
OL’ ARGUS WOULD NEVER
get the prize anyway so I’ll table my brilliant ideas here, and if anyone wishes they may claim them as their own and feel free.
The solution offered in the ref’d article leans toward (okay, advocates) not only more ‘United’ Nationing but a bigger and better United Nations.
I like it (yes—that is sarcasm). I adore anyone who, if it doesn’t work the first seventy years, let’s do it again, and hang in there with it. Actually, it will never work but in the meantime does keep some people off the streets, away from productive jobs, in nice suits and posh cars.
BEFORE I OFFER MY SOLUTION
let me give you one last quote (same source):
Entries for the New Shape Prize close on May 24, 2017, and the winning idea will be chosen by a panel of academic experts and a high-level international jury.
Make of that what you will—a panel of experts (academic experts, wow~!) and a jury (high-level, wow some more). Talk about no-one getting the blame if it all goes belly up—spread the risk, gotta be democratic about this.
MY CLEVER CUNNING,
inconceivable, and “They’re not yet ready for this, Jim!” novel solution:
(Wot? That’s it? Awwk!)
But education with a difference.
don’t teach ’em ‘facts’. Facts change to suit time and place. Facts are fashion, mostly.
Just teach ’em how to think
Think. Think? Brrrr. None of that delightful socially compliant boss-pleasing Politically Correct rubbish but objective reasoning based on Reality. Genuine facts (discernment, anybody?).
GET EACH AND EVERY
boofhead to the point where he or she can (and does) think for himself. Herself. Itself. Theirself(s). (It’s not easy, is it, being PC? I think I’ll stay with traditional.)
It may hurt all round to get folks thinking but once they are they’ll no longer be boofheads. And there’ll be no need for ever-increasing self-dividing mass multiplying exponentially-growing organisations like United Nationses and EU’s and such.
“Mr Argus, Sir?”
“Yes, Little Virginia?”
“Sir … where does their five million dollars come from?”
“Don’t ask, Kid. You may embarrass someone …”
DARE I REPEAT MYSELF
again? Of course:
“Education not based on Reality isn’t education, it’s propaganda.”
Concur? Oh good—there’s hope for us yet.
So if your education and Reality contradict each other, just always remember that there are no such things as contradictions.
I come in peace, love, and friendship. Give me a hug~!
TALKING OF NEEDING A HUG—
As an innocent bystander she really shouldn’t be there, so close to cold water on a day like this she might catch something. The United Nations should make a ruling about it …
