Many young people went to the Caliphate hoping to build the ideal society there.

They expected to feel at home among like-minded people, freely practice their faith, perform heroic deeds, and build what they see as an ideal society.

Imagine you could build your own ideal society. What would it be like?

In the third assignment, the students are imagining their ideal society. What would they get rid of? What would they do more of? What would they fight for? The class agrees on a campaign or action that they feel will improve their class/school/society. For a whole week, the class will try out the action.

Experiment for the future

Evaluation
What did we do, and how did it go?

• We stood in the entrance to our school, and handed out free muffins, cupcakes and
brownies. This was to spread a good vibe throughout the school, since it was a Monday. It
went really well, as we got a great response.
Did we get a response from people?

• Yes, people seemed really happy, although confused. They asked why we did it for free, and
when we told them that it was to spread good vibes, they seemed glad. The overall response
was good, and it seemed like the Monday got a little better for some people.
How did we ourselves feel about the project?

• It was nice, since we feel happy when we are able to spread a good vibe. It was awkward
sometimes though, as we sometimes just stood there when people didn’t come up to us.
Is it something we would keep doing?

• It is something we could do once a month, not every week. This is because of several
reasons: We’ll have to bake a lot of stuff, we might lose classes, and it generally takes a lot of
time and energy.

My view of the future

To change something in a country only could be a dream because you can’t let it be truth.
So I have no changes for my country because its worthless to make thoughts about it but if there is something to change it would be the social activities where everyone respect other people and they can live and share their cultural appointments together without racisim.

The future

This is the mindset of many, “if this and that will change everything would be better” – everyone should first start with ourselves, probably most people hunt of their lives behind their illusions and do not realize it. Each man and women could change so much if he or she would start with yourself!

But at least i dream of a world in the way john lennon describe it in his song “Imagine”

Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion, too

Imagine all the people
Living life in peace

You, you may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you will join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man

Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world

You, you may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you will join us
And the world will live as one

How can I improve my country?

First we have to use 100 percent regenerative energy in our coutry. We have to abolish all nuclear power stations and all coal power plants. The climate change and the pollution of our environment is a real problem for all people on this planet.

But how can we do it? The intensive animal husbandry consume a lot of energy waste million tons of water and produce greenhouse gas like co2, methan and nitrogen oxides.
Also it uses 30 percent of the whole country area.

Let us remove the intensive animal husbandry to save our enviroment. Also the automotive industry should work on more powerful and cheaper electric motors, so that all people can drive an electric car. We dont have to blow thousend kilos of co2 in our breathing air.

The second improvement is the destruction of the black market. The police use 1,6 billion Euros per year only for the drug repression in Germany. Reports show that this repression have nearly no effect. There is anyway a black market and consumer of illegal drugs. So the ban of illegal drugs is useless. This also show studies and the exemple Portugal.

In Portugal are all drugs decriminalized since 2000 and the number of consumer is decreased and the death rate also decreased. The most death of consumer is blamed of impure drugs not because of the drug.

There are many addicted people which become criminal and they get no help because of the prohibition. It should be more enlightenment instead of repression. The coasts of the police could be used so usefull but they arent. In Colorado Cannabis has been legalized and the dealer isnt anymore a criminal on the black market but the state. The state get the taxes for the selling and the consumer get clean products. From this taxes and the save of repression the country can build new schools by example and this is happend. Germany should take Colorado as a rolemodel to stop the black market and the criminalization.
