The Question: what would you do if you knew you could not fail?

Apologies for the links not being right – I’m doing this on my iPad and I Aven’t quite worked out how to do it properly. I’ll fix it in the morning when I get ack on the laptop.

Anyway, The Question is a meme set up by Stephen Chapman at The State of the Nation UK . He wants bloggers to answer the same question on the same day. This month it’s ‘what would you do if you knew you could not fail?

Where do you start with that? I thought about literary success J K Rowling style as a means to getting loads of money to do good with. Jennie had a similar idea, though.

Then I thought about going to Israel to get them to stop treating the Palestinians so appallingly to bring peace to that Region.

But what I actually decided upon was being able to really get it into boys’ heads that the images of how women should look that they are bombarded with are complete nonsense, created with the express aim of making money for somebody; that pornography which portrays women as receptacles is dangerous & if they actually listen to their partners, everyone will have more fun; that there is never any excuse for mental or physical violence (of the non consensual variety, anyway). The potential for that to create happier, more fulfilled individuals, who then have more energy & motivation to make the world a better place, is very appealing indeed.

Update: and of course I forgot to come and put the links in. Thanks to Stephen Glenn  for nudging me for my lack of etiquette so apologies all. Anyway, here’s Stephen’s answer to the Question.

  2. Didn't think that LibDems believe in democracy when they wish to take back powers in the Scotland bill or charge student fees and and… anyway it will save all the naysayers having to waste any more time and taxpayers money thinking up ludicrously negative childish arguments against independence.
