You're missing the point. If we were helping each other, Jews and Muslims wouldn't be killing each other. That's my point. I understand this isn't going to happen, so of course it would seem naive. The point is, if everyone actually cared, it would only take a few weeks to fix the world. As for oil prices, we don't need oil. The technology exists to remove oil completely and turn to other energies. The powers that be don't want this however. As for pollution and your point on the FDA, in this hypothetical situation, people would forget about greed and take some pay cuts to not pollute and to further test their products to a point where you don't need an FDA. It would be a society built on trust, rather than conspiracies and lies. I didn't say this world would happen, I said if every single human acted on this notion today, it would. Think about the domino affect that would occur if every person were to not harm anyone for a week, and were to help two people. This won't happen today, but it can start. It can start with you and it can start with me.
