I recently had a dream, yes a a real sleep at night dream, of one version of the New World Order.
It all happened at once. In one day everyone woke up and it was announced there was a change to how things worked.
The world was now to be run as a meritocracy and those who produced would do well.
Everyone in the world was assigned to work within one of seven or eight roles. Theses roles were given each person based on what they were good at doing and their personal inclinations and desires. They did not have to stay working within these roles as long as were productive.
Within this system it was clear that the more ambitious could forge ahead and there was an unrelenting feeling of fear and competition. While they might be able to get by on their own talents and ambitions everyone was aware of others who were more talented and willing to work harder.
A person could languish for a time and survive trying to find their place and be productive but they knew that this was not permanent. Eventually the cracks beneath them would widen and they would disappear and die because there were those who could do the job better.
This alone acted as fine means of world population control for the system would eventually find the sustainable human population.
The dream was both reasonable and frightening.
