Hi Vessy, thank you for the comment!
I think it’s absolutely possible. Not in my lifetime, not in your lifetime, but definitely at some point in the future (maybe 500, 1,000, or 4,000 years from now…).
I agree that we need to be realistic, which is why I’m not saying we should try to make that happen within our lifetime. However, I also think it’s important to have a dream worth working towards.
If we wanted to climb a mountain that would take 300 years to reach the summit, we would teach our children where we’re going and what they should strive for after we die, right? Simply wanting to make the world a better place isn’t enough to get us there (just as wanting to climb a mountain won’t get us to the top of a specific one).
We need to see what the better place actually looks like and then figure out what tiny part our short life can play to help humanity get there. That’s where this vision comes in. All education should be free. All humans should be educated. Nobody should be starving for food or begging to survive. Everyone on the planet should have equal opportunity and shouldn’t be singled out because of where they were born, how much money they have, or their physical condition.
This vision gives us a summit to aim for. Even if we never reach that summit, any effort to reach it will not have gone to waste.
