I want world peace
9/11, Bush and Bin Laden kicked that wish in the balls.

no more passport and visa boundaries
Again, geopolitics threw that idea back by several years, though within Europe boundaries continued to vanish. The UK meanwhile continued its stubborn autism in this regard. Weirdly enough, the financial meltdown helped the EU expand its reach to places like Iceland.

no more protective trade tarifs.
Ha! That didn't happen.

I want the ideal of convenience to cede to the ideal of beauty.
Neither did that.

I want people to stop wearing black.
Didn't happen, especially not in the art and fashion worlds. You boring gits!

I want television to get totally weird and unpredictable.
Er, nope. Not unless you think reality TV fulfilled that.

I want everybody's IQ to increase by at least 35 points.
Nope.

I want the whole world to look a bit more like Harajuku, Tokyo, or Dante's Florence, or Shakespeare's London.
In the sense that those were dense places, yes. More people on the planet, and more urbanisation, meant more density. In the sense of a flourishing of creativity, not really. Harajuku itself got a lot more boring, for a start.

Apparently taking creatine helps in this regard, but for some reason only if you're vegetarian...

great lists

I could ramble and agree or disagree with many of the things your bring up... but this is the easiest...

Momus!!! we're in the middle of a HUGE dayglo fashion fantasy. Of course some peolpe (like myself who I guess is your fashion nightmare, I wear black and jeans most the time) are just sticking to black and the likes...

The whole thing right now is people wearing bright neon colors... and all the dayglo sneaks?

I guess I like a lot of background... then 'space' can be the foreground.

something like that.

but anyways...

(thanks)

I quite agree about background and space. Sometimes I want clothing to be the paper, not the handwriting.
