Teaching them to give Printer Friendly Version
Some schools have already started this idea.... but it should be required by many more. Jr High and High School age kids should be required to do a certain number of community service hours per semester to pass. Donating their time to a cause (of their choice) would create more caring and aware citizens.
Reward: A better world.

Renaming rights Printer Friendly Version
After beating the snot out of each other one day, Stig and I discussed ways of bringing lasting peace to the world. Military deterrents? Forget it. Economic sanctions? Punchless. Public ridicule? Now you're talking...
Simply add the following amendment to the UN charter:
Should any nation declare war on any other nation, the declared upon nation has the right to officially rename the declaring nation; use of this new name shall be binding for all UN members.
Would any nation ever declare war again if it risked becoming permanently known as Suckerland? Would India even dream of declaring war on its neighbor if India would then be called South Pakistan? Plenty of potential here...
Reward: World peace. Plus a condo in the South of Briechewerland...

More efficient, humane work schedule Printer Friendly Version
- 30 hour work week is standard. Jobs would offer both a 5AM to 11AM shift or a 1PM to 7PM shift. (Restaurants, bars would have different shifts.)
- Traffic on roads reduced as there are half the commuters on road at same time (except at lunch time).
- Families wouldn't need daycare. One worker in morning shift, other in evening.
- Go-getters, renaissance people can manage having two full-time jobs in completely different fields.
- Stores are open when you're not working.
- Greater worker efficiency, satisfaction (fewer hours, better work).
- Lunch can be enjoyed at home as family.
- Businesses are open for longer hours, making it easier to get things done, across multiple time zones.
- People can enjoy a good part of the daylight hours.
- Companies need less rental space for same job.
Reward: My choice of shifts. A holiday called Bluecube Day.
