a new social contract - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
In those days we saved the world, the older ones were set in their ways, yet the youth were ready for something new. We wanted a world with no money, a free world where we had the best institutions run by us because we love to help each other. The transition needed a new way to ease that in; it was always going to need to blend in, to flow, evolution not revolution. So the young asked for a new social contract. They would do their best with whatever talents they had, work within society to bring the maximum benefit to all within a volunteer agency that welcomed and enhanced their creative input. In exchange they had a lovely home for life, guaranteed good food, all energy and health needs met, total cradle to grave care, and a little money too while capitalism was phased out, albeit over a few decades. Over time, more older folks asked for it too, people of every profession. It was popular. We got a whole new way of living, more joy than we ever expected to have, healthy families, enough time to enjoy being parents. It was a great thing. Services were services, none of the power-rubbish of the past."
"After the new social contract life became a lot more fun. We had inter-volunteer-village cooking contests, bungee jumping contests, music contests and dance-offs. We worked for joy and played every day, it was awesome. We even made our own TV shows, locals becoming local celebrities. We got a feeling of "tribe" going, our own vibe and culture. Folks were always welcome to visit, but we never told them our recipes, our magic, that was ours."
