Wild Fact About Me
My Philosophy All theistic ideologies can be covered by the simple concept of "respect".
What Gives Me Hope People of good will outnumber those of bad will. We need to motivate those good will.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by I would progressively redirect the subsidies and funding from the military towards health and disability, education, development funding. I would impose import taxes on all goods imported based on twice what the exporting nation spends on the military, and the difference between their lower greenhouse gas targets. This will encourage moderate military spending and incentivise spending on greenhouse gas reduction.
