I got this in my email inbox last night from a candidate for Utah State Governor. Tell me I'm not the only one who thinks this plan is straight from the Pescadero State Mental Hospital.
Message from Charles "Chuck" Smith, Candidate for Governor
Stay tuned for a flow chart. It is on its way. Now for economic development.
The basic materials needed to create wealth are finely scattered over the whole earth giving us many places from which we can build. The only thing that keeps us back from multiplying our wealth many times is a step by step example of how to do it. With the powerful tools of technology we can create this example, first in a virtual world. The virtual tools gives us the ability to cheaply trial and error through to perfection a risk free path. Then we can follow that path to great real success and wealth.
Everyone wants to know how we can increase peoples incomes in the State of Utah. So, here is the step by step overview of what I am already building. First we start a club and invite all who want to 4 times their income in the next 4 years to join it. The club is free of charge. In the club each person takes pictures every week of the things they would buy or do if they had 4 times their income. Those pictures are accumulated and made into a high speed movie, one for each week for all to view via the Internet. From this data of what we want and need, we create robotic systems to produce these goods and services in a virtual world setting. As the design for robotic manufacturing starts to develop we use engineering software tools to create the details necessary to build these robots in the real world. As the specifications come from engineering we look for materials to build the robotics. The goal is to acquire all materials through efficient energy and material recycling. Once we have acquired materials we will build robots using the virtual designs and engineering to control the building process. With robots in place we will then start producing the goods and services that we want as per the initial picture collection. Club members will get these products and services as payment for their participation in the club. The value of the goods and services for each club member should exceed 4 times their income in the fourth year of club participation.
This is a simple explanation of the steps; the actual doing of this plan will bring out many unforeseen opportunities to expand and multiply our talents. Every step will be looked at with the idea that what we do should be able to be done by others in other parts of the the world so that eventually all peoples in all nations can follow our step by step process to advance there wealth production abilities.
