So it is Naziist to get people to take a test to drive a car now? It is Orwellian for people to have to have a gun licence? Patronising that you have to get certain A-levels to go to university? What if an A-level examiner is sterner than others? Do you need to retake a driving test to change a job? If you retire does that stop you doing anything in life? Do you really believe you do anything in this society that doesn't require someone to be 'judge and juror'?Have you actually thought about what you wrote?
Applying for a driving licence or gun licence does NOT involve being judged and awarded points throughout your life. Who the hell is to be judge and juror in your New Society, throughout the persons life. What about job changes? Retirees? Some who have a sterner view than others? It is Orwellian, Nazist, and bloody patronising to imagine a system where a group of human beings have the control to "reward" an individual. Not to mention utterly unworkable.
Why is it so hard to imagine a system where continuing education is actively encouraged and rewarded over living in ignorance? We are already offered education opportunities in various guises throughout life but you can pick and choose if you want to take them. In my borough the level of deprivation is bad enough that special teams are put together by the council to try and encourage better family life. My wife has worked with them and while some cases are lost causes there are people in desperate need of help and guidance. When we had our baby we were offered free classes to prepare us for child care because it was assumed we wouldn't be fit parents when friends in the adjacent boroughs weren't even offered basic anti-natal classes because they live in a 'better' area. How is that fair? We've just had people posting that they've signed up for first aid classes so why shouldn't they get some kind of reward for that?
Dog ownership is a great example. You can go out and buy a dog with no idea how to look after a dog, how to train it, feed it, or even how to choose a suitable dog. Most people do their research, educate themselves and do a good job of it but the shelters are full of the failed examples and the money to look after them has to come from somewhere. We have a society where you can impulse buy an animal and then if it doesn't work out it's someone else's problem. Is that less crazy than suggesting people have to obtain a level of education before being allowed a pet?
People say it's unworkable but you just need to look at how much money is spent bailing people out of self-made problems to see that the funds are there to do something like this. Why spend millions helping people get out of debt rather than investing in teaching them how budget properly. The tools are already there but you can lead a horse to water etc. Look at the amount we spend in landfill taxes, recycling target fines and on cleaning up litter when most people don't even know how or what to do with their recycling.
but yes this is tongue in cheek as it is an impossible dream. It's easy to paint a picture of how well it could work but I doubt anyone would vote for me if I started spouting this nonsense and running for Prime Minister
