🌏 What future do you want to see?
I'm writing a Warp News Manifesto, a mission statement.
In that manifesto I'm having a section of the future we want to see come sooner, and I want to know what you think I should include in it?
Let me give you one example, so you understand what I mean:
Every human being living in democracy
With democracy follow all the other essential aspects of life—no extreme poverty, no famines, increased wealth, education, healthcare, and so on.
Nothing will change life for the better faster than a rapid transition to a hundred percent democratic world.
What other topics, goals and technologies do you think I should include in the Warp News Manifesto?
