Your Majesty, thank you for your work to improve inter-cultural relations, and individual conditions.
Let me briefly outline my proposal, for a solution to help solve the problem of negative cultural stereotypes.
When we look at other cultures with fear and anger, it not only cuts us off from a wealth of cultural beauty, and inter-personal relations, but fuels on-going conflicts that stunt economic development in every country, hurts the environment, and prevents life from improving for people all over the world.
We need a long range, lasting solution, that can also help improve international relations and personal conditions as it grows.
What's the source of the problem? I suggest: economic scarcity. Other problems grow out of this over time.
There has never really been a scarcity of resources. For instance, all power, even oil and coal, comes from the sun. And there is plenty of sun. The scarcity has been our ability to cultivate resources.
Throughout history, and now at an increasing tempo, technology has been making the tools to use resources more efficiently.
The problem is, we still collectively think in terms of limited resources, which leads to hoarding, predatory political and business strategies, which produce rhetoric to justify those practices. It is much easier to exploit or attack people we hate. Over time these negative ideas get accepted as truth.
The solution is to increase wealth, access to resources, for every individual, including everyone from the poor to the already rich. The idea of equalizing wealth will never work, because it will always be opposed by those who already hold wealth and power. So the solution is simply to increase wealth for everyone.
Is this possible? It's not only possible; it's inevitable, unless we turn to grey goo. Today, millions of people live better than the richest people did a few centuries ago. We can make a world where billions of people live better than billionaires today. It's win win.
The ultimate resource is the individual: the mind and heart, and the body that supports this precious life. It is not only the resource, but the object of resources. Life quality is the point of economy, and working with resources.
Historical political and business structures were an improvement over animal life, but have been far from ideal. Now, just as we are poised to get more clean value from the sun, we can make a quantum leap in how we cultivate the value of the "self," and return and circulate that value, with synergistic effect.
In the same way that we are making tools to more efficiently use sun, soil, plants and water, Selfport is a tool made to more efficiently maximize the value of the individual person.
It is a web based, entrepreneurial tool set. As you point out, sites like Youtube can already help to foster dialogue and mutual understanding. Selfport builds on the benefits the web offers us. And one of the most important of those features is that the web is international.
So Selfport promotes this cultivation of prosperity through inter-personal relations across countries...direct, person to person international relations, unfiltered by media memes that can perpetuate negative stereotypes. These will break down when we not only meet each other face to face, but can directly work together for mutual benefit.
What does Selfport need to succeed? Attention. Use. We'd like to demonstrate these tools to you, and how they can support causes you care about.
Selfport can extend the reach and benefits of microfinance, and can promote, speed and spread education, so it fits with your work.
We are laying the ground work, behind the scenes, for the rapid growth needed to thrive in a competitive business world, and reach enough people to significantly improve conditions widely.
Please consider offering us an hour or less of your time, to prove the potential viability of this platform.
