Our knowledge and tech allows us to solve most of the trivial problems like #recycling. And some countries, like #Switzerland, have them implemented. Today

And it’s a #democracy. With a lot of #guns. But not much gun violence. And no oil or gas. Except from compost, of course 😉

And yet, people are against a “World Government” for a puny rock that you can fly around under 45 hrs in a standard passenger aircraft

Let’s subdivide rapidly warming deserts into #Dunbar-number-compatible parcels, all with their own flags, passport controls, armies, ball-on-the-grass teams and One True #God™.

Have you ever imagined a “#conflict” dealt as a local psychiatric emergency, not some underpaid war-as-a-hobby? Wanna work in France? No work visa required, just pack your stuff.

Actions speak better than New Years’s Eve resolutions. 8 billion annually.

So, here’s your #export declaration form for the pair of socks, look it up in the Harmonized Tariff table. And change your avatar’s flag to the war du jour.

I’ve spent the day walking the vines of Lavaux, #Switzerland, smelling the roses and tasting the grapes. I only wish #photo gear was lighter
