It has often been said that people say a lot while saying very little. That goes to show that if we just keep doing the same things, then nothing will change.

Alabama House Bill 314 aka Human Life Protection Act, and colloquially known as the Heartbeat Bill or abortion ban, has stirred up a lot of controversy since it passed in May of 2019.

What if I were to tell you that both of these issues could be easily solved?
There is a lot of debris left in space from our activities up there. It makes it very difficult to put satellites or astronauts into orbit. There is also the problem that there isn’t nearly enough time in the day to get everything done that we want to get done. What if I were to tell you that we can fix both of these seemingly disparate problems with one simple solution?
Automation of low-skill jobs could spell disaster in our future. Right now, the U.S. and western culture in general is faced with a growing racial divide. What if I told you that one problem could be used to fix the other?
The current minimum wage is thought to be too low for someone to meet their basic needs. However, it’s also thought that increasing minimum wage will cause businesses to hire fewer people and invest more in automation. What if I were to tell you there is a way to pay a living wage without touching the minimum wage?
A lot of people around the world go hungry every day while ocean levels rise, threatening island nations and coastal cities. What if I told you there’s a way to fix both of these problems at once?
