Jaimie Mantzel, and me going off about the world.

I think every people on the earth should watch this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0nOzbCiRHhM by Jaimie Mantzel
Personally I'm pretty tired of the society nowadays. Just like Jaimie mentions, there are too many lazy, selfish people that never creates and give anything and just passes through life taking. The key to society is creativity and that was what created it in the first place. Lack of creativity and motivation just holds the world back. Something that definetely does not hold back the world is economy, but most people think it does which results in it being true. Think, if everybody would be motivated and creating, we would be far ahead of where we are now, maybe even on Mars colonizing the planet. Don't get me wrong here on any environment issues, creativity won't make us consume more resources and destroy the environment faster. I'm pretty sure the average lazy guy consumes more energy and recources than the average creative guy. Just like Jaimie mentions, so many products just gets thrown away, being used once.
I dream of creating a new country for creative and motivated people like scientist, engineers, serious hobbyists or artists. The society should be entirely without economy, however providing basic recources, and all possible tools for creating stuff. Yes, this includes food (but maybe the country will grow it's own crops) and other provisions. The fact that all people in the country is motivated will make for an extreme amount of manpower. Anyway, the country would have money outwards, and i guess the country would produce an huge amount of stuff that other countries would be interested in, and some countries maybe will donate money because the coutnry develops technology at such a high rate.
Hope for people to give strongly positive response, after all, thats what would be needed start this thing off (and some land maybe, i guess... :P But that will be able to solve)...
