A world of plenty is attainable in both democratic and authoritarian governments through economic freedom. When people live better, violence goes down, other freedoms follow, and the ideal of a world of peace is attainable. Improvement in the lives of people and their children is the only ideal common to all nations and cultures; consequently, economic common purpose is the only way to unite people.
This ideal is more attainable in the 21st century because the Information Age adds new levels of productivity, new communications technology making the world a global village; and is itself a unifying influence. The world is ready to free the body of material needs, and free the spirit to reach full potential, once the impediments of concentrated wealth and violence are eliminated.
Citizens must vote for candidates who reaffirm the ideal that peace and plenty are attainable, that economic freedom is the means, and that economic common purpose is the way to unite people and stop violence.
