Develop weapons of mass destruction to bomb Utopian societies.

Build a private state of the art island empire for me, myself, and I (okay maybe a few close ones too).

Of course the ultimate utopian society would have at its disposal the ultimate weapon of mass destruction. This has to be an integral part of its survival against the many "bombers" of the world.

Nah, the real survival technique there would be a workable defense against the assaults of the 'bombers'. But keep the WMDs on hand; MAD might have a deterrent effect on some of them. Then again, it might not...

Offense is the best defense! How about a super slick preemptive strike weapon?

1. Pay off my mortgage.

2. Work to change the following:

- Remove the powers of all governments to do anything other than prevent crime.

- Abolish the Plurality Voting System and all other voting systems with biases built into them.

- Require all politicians in office to pay three times the taxes all other people pay.

- Get Political Correctness and Environmentalism recognized as the religions they are, and treated appropriately by governments. Their tenets would not allowed to be made into laws.

- Limit the amount of tax any individual is required to pay to 10 percent.

- Require scientific reviews by disinterested scientists of all scientific claims presented to governments with the intent to require laws to be passed.

Good idea except without the donation part

give it all away to relatives and charity. I would hate to be filthy rich -- people who have lots of money have to work their tails off just to keep it. I'm perfectly happy with what I have now.

Yeah, I do agree with you.

Most of it would end up being invested in such a way as to provide me with a comfortable income.
A small percentage I'd likely use to buy a house (cheaper in the long run than renting), hire a maid (I hate housework), and make some extended voyages.

Why squander away money when you can make it work for you?

I'd go mad!! I'm better off without it.

Well if you really didn't want it, I spose I could take it off your hands.

lol.. What I really meant was that once you've achieved what you wanted to, its pretty difficult to maintain balance in one's life. I do believe that "An idle mind is a devil's workshop". After you've hit the jackpot, the only things that you'd be probably doing is social work, socializing with friends, etc. There would not be enough quality work to do and I might become idle (devil) sooner or later. Everyone might not succumb to such things, but I think I am not strong enough to be able to remain steadfast to that extent. Instead, it is good that I have a real goal in life, always.. Who knows, the road travelled may turn out to be more beautiful than the destination reached. I want to enjoy leading my life whatever it turns out to be.
