Whenever I see stuff like this, my question is: Okay, but how are you going to get policies that would result in a higher standard of living from the current society? From my observations, American humans are really really really attached to their resentment and apocalyptic paranoia, and if any policy ideas that would lead to a higher standard of living could even get a hearing in our culture, their proponents would be spit on and hated and trolled.

Sorry, I've just developed learned helplessness from watching things go downhill for almost all my adulthood - I was 20 when 9/11 happened, and it's all been a fall into paranoia and hatred and irrationality from there, and I don't see any way to reach people who are deep into that hole.
