Gold? power? fun? pride? family? what if it were based on people? every person on the planet earns enough when they turn 18 to afford half a house. The first marriage earns you 10,000 more. but it is illegal for parents to profit from their children or tell them they will have money before they are 18. this allows for college to be obtained and a higher efficiency of overall human life. Otherwise we are stuck with an increasing amount of people with an increasing cost at a steady amount of money. Rather than solidifying supply and demand between what it costs to live and how much you can produce. Of course school would be completely altered to create, program, and (most well paid) maintain machines. Machine maintenance causes the most casualties and injuries. There are no taxes. Machines have completely taken over agriculture. Moving the best malorganite to the driest areas… Hard work and exercise pays more than knowledge because it is better for you than knowledge alone because all knowledge is known. Hard workers have more to pay healthcare workers. Hospitals no longer rely on gov handouts and just have to use them to save lives. Hmmm. We are not far! But we could be so much further in the blink of an eye.
