States and Wildlife Parks


 

This state is extremely efficient in its usage of land. Thus, per person, this society would use only one twentieth of the land the average person uses in the current world. Thus this state could easily afford to buy some extra land adjacent to the state. This land would be of the same area as the state itself i.e. 10 km by 10 km. And this land would be almost fully used for wildlife. (But it would be 14 km by 14 km if my enclosed form of agriculture can't be made to work.)

 

 

However, of course, our people would also use this park for recreation. But we will be very careful not to interfere with any of the wildlife at all. You can see in the above picture how we might use this land.
            So our underground transport would be extended underneath the park to a conveniently area, where we would have a small human park centre (shown at the top on the right). Here there would be backpacker hostels and shops where people could obtain provisions. From here people could go out into the park, commune with nature, watch the wildlife, get some exercise and even camp if they wished to. In the park I have put several huts where people could cook, sleep and be assured of obtaining water. Guns of course would be completely forbidden in the park. (My idea is that people should be able to hire strong telescopic, spiked rods to ward off animals - should they be worried about being attacked.)


As you can see in the next picture, this park system could work out very neatly indeed, if other similar communities copied our wonderful example.
            So all these small states can be completely surrounded by wildlife parks. And all the small parks can be connected at the corners. So all the people of these states could enter these parks and spend many weeks walking through the different parks. And they could resupply themselves with food from the different park centres. So all people could enjoy extended wildlife holidays.
            In all parks there is a terribly difficult problem of deciding what kinds of flora and fauna should be supported in the parks. Thus in Australia should these parks have dingoes in them or not. My view would be that some parks should have dingoes and other parks should not. But in this park system this problem can easily be overcome.
            At the corners, where all the various parks meet, there can be some very good gates. And these gates will control the flow of animals between the parks. Thus these gates will stop some animals from passing through - but other animals could pass through. The decision of which animals should be allowed where should be made by the various relevant state governments. So in this case our state will decide on the allowed wildlife just in its "own" special park (at the bottom).
            So this park system can encourage a huge variety in the nature of all the different parks.


Should there every be a series of states similar to the one I am proposing, we could ask the question "should all these states be the same as this one?". I say that in just particular aspect these states should definitely not be the same.
            I claim that the general form, which I have described in this Town-State, should allow all people to enjoy a full, happy, healthy, productive, social life. And at the same time, this type of life would encourage the maximum amount of wildlife. So most of what I have described here could be beneficially copied by other societies.
            But it is best if each society chooses a particular interest, which people can concentrate on in their abundant free-time. So some societies might use their free-time in promoting the arts – music, literature, art etc. Other societies might spend their free-time on sporting activities. Other societies might wish to spend their time on promoting medicines, health and long-life. Other societies might wish to spend their free-time doing scientific research. So there are many good different ways for other societies to spend their free-time.
            It is better for all societies if different societies focus on their different goals. This would promote more variety in the world.
