DP Daily Prompt: If I Ruled the World

You’ve been given the super power to change one law of nature. How do you use it?

I am given the super power to change one law of nature, how will I use it. Not everyday we get this kind of power. So I do have to invest sometime to see what’s the best way of using it. As I was thinking I tripped up on Hobbe’s natural laws, he was a man full of ideas,I thought it would be a good idea to borrow two of his law of nature and see which one suits me better.

I have super power I must use it wisely or the media bums will turn blue criticizing me, I don’t think they’ll dare,seeing that I am in possession of this unbelievable super power. I hear someone whispering, “Stop the rant and get on with business.” I have dual personality you know and my second personality is the whisperer. 

I lost my train of thought what was I saying, “you were talking about Hobbe’s laws of nature.” This prompt was from my second one.

Okay first one on my list is: Everyman ought to endeavour peace,as far as he has hope of obtaining it, and when he cannot obtain it, that he may seek and use all helps and advantages of war.

The second one from Hobbe’s list is : No man by deed or word, countenance or gesture declare hatred or contempt of another. The breach of which law is commonly called contumely.

So I’m fine with the law called “CONTUMELY”. Enforcing this law I feel is easier than the first one on my list. I’ll make a country wide proclamation,from this day forward hatred from one another is prohibited by law. Anyone found guilty will be deprived of consuming food for a week, however they are allowed to drink water. I wouldn’t want them to die of thirst.

Before the law is established the citizens will be provided with an intensive workshop to learn how to contain their anger, the children will  be trained by their parents or guardians.

After the first week attempts will be made to find out if the law is working. If the feedback is positive the citizens will be invited  to all the town squares of the country, where they’ll be given treats for their positive behavior.
