Default Dream

What is your dream ,for your country ,for society ,for your life ,etc ?

My dream is for life without poverty ,without war ,without sickness .Is this a fantasy ? perhaps but when we were kids we were told by our parents ,teachers ,etc . that dreams can come true if you want them badly.

If could be a reality if humans were not so greedy and so violent.

We have all kinds of modern labor saving devices but we have not learned to live in peace.

It makes me sad that we allways have plenty of money to conduct wars but there are not enough funds to fight poverty.

You echo my sentiments exactly . Every time I am in a large US city and see people sleeping in boxes it makes me sick .America should be able to feed the hungry and house the poor .We are not a third world country .

I wish our daily lifestyles would be a bit more relaxed like it was a decade or two ago. Today there is just too much competition in everything! For example, kids nowadays are loading up on extracurricular activities and learning just to stay ahead of the others.

As we get more technology advanced, our moral values are decreasing.

Other than "without sickness", I think all the points brought up by Henry43 can be a reality. It's a possibility but a longshot. Politicians are abusing their power by misspending and carrying out questionable activities.

As for fighting poverty, the poor still have to have a desire to get out of it. I'm sure there are a lot of people who are simply content by living on welfare and food stamps.

Man I need a cruise vacation!

I personally am against the Food Stamp program mainly because of the abuse by people receiving them.
I agree that many people "enjoy" government handouts .

That would be my biggest dream. Much good could happen in society if we could live in peace.

While dreams may be something to hold onto... I am of the belief that "action" related to your dreams will only get you closer to realizing those "dreams" and that they must be realistic dreams as well.

When I worked with Dr.King in the 60's people laughed at his dream .

That is a rather deep and complex question! what I want and what I need, I suspect, are two entirely different things.

What I want: safe roads preferably with motorcycle lanes(other drivers suck, lol), 0% unemployment, no bad workplaces, fair hiring standards, 24hr businesses and harmony between people. Everything else would be gravy


honest and fair politicians too I can dream!
