PUTTING WEALTH TO WORK
• pay fines for those that are in jail because they couldn't pay them. (as an aside, then they can vote, too)
• pay for genetic lineage testing for african-americans since that was lost in the slave exporting
• pay for prison phone calls - can be up to $25/15minutes - for those who can't stay in touch with their families
WIN:LOSE situations to address
small picturesque villages flooded with tourists.
ban cruise ships parking in harbour - how did we ever think this was acceptable? someone profits everyone else loses - good example of WIN:LOSE decision
ROAD HIERARCHY: Pedestrians, bicycles, transit. CARS ARE THE GUESTS.
BAN CARS ON SUNDAYS: Bogotá, Colombia did it and people love it.
surcharges for inner city driving
CONNECTING people from diverse cultures into weekly discussions, book clubs, etc. keep this healing in the air - create a global unity website. I'd join as many as I could
NOISE POLLUTION CREATES STRESS:
mow lawns only between 9-10am
invent quiet AC units so neighbourhoods don't sound like airplane hangars
ban loud mufflers, they scare people
promote: kids playing basketball late at night, happy people, happy dogs
FIREWORKS: use drone fireworks if we have to at all, no noise, no pollution.
KEEP SKIES DARK SANCTUARIES: Shine lights down not up.
