    Hi Platt

    Actually I really think we need to get
    rid of money, then we have to have a
    more intelligence and democratic form
    of decision making. And like you suggest
    the whole notion of control needs eliminating.
    Cooperation is a much better way forward.
    We really do need to have less conflict based
    societies. Our means of conflict are just so dangerous
    these days. If we do not end conflict then the final conflict
    is probably just a matter of time.
