Why haven't we found an easier way to remove garbage and waste from society? We sure do produce lots of plastics and empty packaging and waste. In a Consumer society, at some point, everything becomes waste. I imagine we won't have museums in the future, as none of this stuff will last that long.
Why haven't we found a better way to feed society. Agriculture got us out of the savanna and on to farms, how many people do you know that are full time farmers? In that regard, why haven't we created synthesized foods, that bypass the need to have cattle and dairy and fruits and vegetables. How about a pill wash down with glass of water?
Why haven't we created a better mechanism for the standard Toilets. Seems like people have been using bathrooms for a very long time. This is the best we can do?
These three are very basic needs.
How about others?
Why haven't we centralized the health care records. This one seems like a no brain'er. We certainly have storage, software, networks, security (maybe), and some really smart people. Imagine how much savings could be had. And perhaps better care, faster, more efficient.
Why aren't children considered adults sooner. Why must children wait until 18 years of age? Seems like children could be fast tracked and become adults much younger? Once they reach puberty, they could become parents. Why do we have 12 grades of school, locking kids into the system until adulthood? Why not become 'legal' adults sooner. Does this rule seem a bit outdated? Like when we needed a dozen kids to work the farm to get the crops in. I'd say, in the interim, if parents sign waver, child becomes adult when they say, otherwise, wait until 18. If parent signs waiver to drink alcohol, join military, clergy, etc. make it happen.
Why don't we have an additional 'legal' status, before becoming married. Like 'sort of married'. Can have a ceremony, gifts, cake, dancing, except the two are not united in holy matrimony, until death do they part. They're just trying it out, see if it's a fit. Sure would cut down on the divorce rate.
Why do people get drivers licences at 16 years old, and never tested again? Seems like a test now and then wouldn't hurt. Just to verify the eyes and ears and reflexes are still performing. And new rules appear all the time on the road, people don't keep up with new rules. Why not have classes and tests periodically keep people up to standards. Maybe reduce a few wrecks here and there.
And so it goes~!
