The Ragnarök Project
How to get involved:
And finally, we have it: a way to make a significant impact on the future of the planet without you needing to get up and actually do things!
Thats right! You can actually do a significant amount of good with zero monetary investment and zero physical investment!
The coolest thing about this project is that you can literally make a difference from your couch. The driving force behind humanity has always been humans; our ideas, inventions, our dreams, these are the makings of greatness. Our current system is not designed to allow free thought, however. Possibly the most important aspect of this project is that it allows humans to be the best they can be at what they want to be good at. Using our greatest strength, our minds, we can make incredible things happen.
Where do you start? Send in ideas for the future to email@example.com, or hop into the forum and post there. Collective imagination opens doors. Use yours!
How does this actually make things happen? Well, imagine being an investor and seeing a place that ideas are thriving, the next big thing being worked on by people passionate about projects with of various levels of experience. That seems idealistic, but we can actually make it happen. Instead of coming up with ideas to 'get rich,' you just come up with ideas to make the world a better place. It doesn't need to be structural, it can be as simple as a vision you had of a better future; make that vision reality, make your dreams come true, not alone but with a large and diverse group of people who can help refine your idea, can add their own fields of expertise, their own capital, with people that can add their strengths to yours.
Beyond that, simply discussing the fact that there is a better way to go forward does a significant amount of good. The path we are on is not the only path! Life can be good for everyone and it should be! Going to work 40+ hours a week does not need to be the norm, it only exists that way to perpetuate an ailing and imbalanced system that significantly benefits those that can amass the most material wealth, regardless of how they get it. That should not be the way the world works, and we can change it!
Be the change you want to see; don't just accept what is in front of you. Challenge me! Challenge yourself! Go in the forum and argue, go post your ideas, send in emails, talk to your friends. If you could design your own life, what would it include? If money was no object, where would you stand right now?
The only limitations you have are those that you place upon yourself; you can make an impact from where you sit right now, all you have to do is do it. Go forth! Make the world a better place!
