    If your dream is to live your dream, does that mean you've already achieved it? I'm sensing an infinite recursive loop here...

    I'd like to be rich enough to not have to find a balance between work that pays my bills and working on things I'm interested in. A bit of extra money to buy assets and pay freelancers would be nice too.

    Boooo to this becoming a joke thread. I love the premise and think it's a worthwhile exercise. It'd be super interesting to see everyone's serious answer and correlate that to their behavior on the forum.

    I'm not 100% sure if this nails mine, but it's a good first attempt:

    It's been in my experience that people are generally good, and even the most gut wrenching of events and actions can be at least understood. One of the biggest things stopping us to be our better selves is that we are constantly addressing the immediate actions of an individual and not everything leading up to the event.

    Here's a fun little fact: the kid that shot up Sandy Hook Elementary School and murdered several small children, yeah, a couple years before that his mother was begging a in-patient mental health facility to take him in and their insurance turned down their claim.

    Here's another fun fact: as someone working with kids that are in dire situations I see so much fly under the radar because there is no funding for it, and every time a kid doesn't get the help they need I wonder if I'm going to read about them in a few years and have to live with the fact that I could have done more to stop it.

    @hippocoder By any chance you mean help humankind using game development as a tool?

    Because Elon Musk believes that there's a very important role of video games in the future of education. And one of the most important aspects that makes human, human, is the sharing of knowledge and good values.

    I believe in what I consider a more realistic philosophy regarding the nature of people. I don't think we're all inherently good, I believe some people will be bad, others will be good, a lot will be somewhere in between, and still nobody is perfect.

    I agree with the sentiment regarding the events leading up to events...

    I don't know what your experiences with kids in need of help is. I'm not trying to attack you either. However implying those kids will turn in to someone like Jared Lee Loughner, or Adam Lanza is in my opinion an immature generalization.

    Mental illness and those who have to deal with it is something I feel very strongly about.

    I agree completely and absolutely about the lack of help for the people who need it. If you broke your leg today odds are you would go to a hospital, undergo some surgery, and be in a cast for the next few weeks or months.

    If you developed a mental illness chances are it would be difficult to find and/or get help. It would be even more difficult to find someone who believes you.

    Sometimes a persons outcome in life depends on luck. I read an article from Twitter about Japanese POW's in WW2. The headline was: "The Bomb saved my Mom" (google this, you might find it) This persons' mother was a POW, and the story goes Japan was running low on resources by the time the two bombs were dropped. Food was scarce, and to the Japanese the Indonesian POW's and others captured during the war were beginning to look like an increasingly viable option. This persons's mother (and many others) were lucky the war ended when it did.

    I'm saying this because many times people who develop mental illness are lucky to have a family who cares about them and get help. Many others aren't so lucky.

    Its a damn shame that help facilities are closing down (read: being closED down) everywhere in the US, I don't know about other parts of the world. Its the ill who get blamed for things like Sandy Hook. Its not guns. Its not the mentally ill. Its the f***ing people in office shutting down things people need!!!

    I think it's unfair to call me immature because I fear that a kid I work with today could potentially do harm in the future. I work in a field where I work with kids coming from horror stories on a day to day basis.

    Trust me when I say that I fear about where some of them are going, it's not a judgement on them (I love all the boys under my care. Especially the challenging ones.), it's a genuine concern for their well being.

    And yes, I suppose politicians work in offices, so I guess people in office slash funding to death.

    Here's the thing, emergency family services should get what they need. Period. It costs what it costs and places like the one I work for shouldn't have to go to companies for hand outs, hat in hand.

    We've got 12 aircraft carriers each costing over 100 billion dollars a year to keep going. If just one of those were decommissioned we could pay for all the family services we'd ever need.

    That pisses my off.

    creating world(s) to experience and live, also becoming healthy.

    and it's not only about games :) for some reason I'm faszinated with everything to do with creating coherent worlds with rules, stories, like everything our real world consists of also...but I prefer fantasy worlds. I like making maps and making up characters :D games seem to be the ultimate medium for that since they are interactable :D

    Or we could stop placing economic value to everything. Whether it's protecting life or the environment that supports life, there's never a scenario where you should turn down that opportunity just because you're not being paid for it.

    On the other hand, I really do want to see all of the wealthy idiots be the last race on this planet and then die slowly because one day the air is so toxic from their family business they get poisoned every time they inhale.

    I don't think either decomissioning aircraft carriers or not putting economic value on things would help. Everything is economics, the struggle of life has always been a question of economics. Just because it comes in the form of money rather than food doesn't change things.

    The problem is that society has not solved the problem of balancing newfound individual freedom with the ability to secure good outcomes in governance. You can only succeed in governance if you have no convictions and never promise anything lest someone hold you to to it, and cater to individual desires and tendencies rather than collective ones. Democracy makes politics a question of salesmanship and pursuing the loyalty of people who have never bothered to study anything outside their own bubble of existence. This is exactly the worst situation for a society to be in when there are collective problems the solutions of which have an impact on individual lifestyles.

    The only way now for anyone to do anything useful is to become really rich, which is exactly what the general population likes to hate, and try to use your money to do something useful. But it is not only difficult and hard work to make enough money to make a difference but there is no guarantee that it would be effective since charity is useless (or worse than useless) when good governance is lacking.

    I don't have any answers but I would say that there are signs around the world that affluent societies are recognizing this fundamental problem.

    Really at the deficits the governments are running you can't blame the fact you are poor and ain't running the world yourself on the fact that you are not creating the budget that these governments are spending their money on. The fact that a very small number of people are taking materials designed for peaceful purposes and using them to attack other innocent people should tell you aircraft carriers aren't going away anytime soon. The thing that has to change before aircraft carriers are decommissioned are xenophobic cultures must be stopped and opened to the modern world. The world needs laws of equitable humaneness, safety, and health and needs to throttle greed.

    Contrary to what is popularly believed, it is fortunate that the latest fads in greed are mostly for money and that money is held by only few people and those people can't effectively spend it without endangering the worth of the money they have already accumulated or endangering the access to things they must have, like food, but can't produce themselves no matter how much money they have, otherwise the world would be stripped of it's resources so fast in a competition to have more of resource X than anybody else your head would spin.
