rather than write my own, I'll just modify yours:
IN MY IDEAL WORLD:
I would be leader, living on my private island in the pacific, with good waves, and policies would be managed over the Internet for the sake of speed and convenience. For the most part, people would be free to govern their own comunities, though certain broad policies would be enforced:
Any child who was found to be a poseur/preppy/prep/fakely popular people or a jock or a teenybopper would be sent to live on the Poseur Colony on the moon. I will not have these people breathing my air.
Anyone who is found listening to or making techno, trance, house, rave, dance, gangsta rap, or pop music will be executed humanely, and have their bodies used as a supplemental source of electrical energy. I will not stand to have to deal with these people, or their lame music.
Anyone living anywhere MUST have a reasonable grasp of the English language, or at least some language with a phoentic alphabet. Symbolic languages/"alphabets" (like kanji, and most asian languages, or any phoenetic system with an alphabet of more than 40 characters) will not be tolerated, due to their inherent inefficiency and differences from phoenetic languages, which make them difficult to learn. Anybody found trying to cling to such an inefficient and illogical language shall suffer the same fate as the ravers.
Anyone over the age of 50 will be sent to live in 'Old Country.' Since that is what old people refer to as being where they came from, I found this a suitable name. Anyone who wishes to visit people living there can, of course. Old people are not allowed to drive. Speed limits will be abolished, as will most laws with regards to sex, drugs, and public conduct. Anybody who disagrees with any of this on the grounds of safety and/or moral outrage is free to live in retro land, where they will be subject to all sorts of bullshit laws and regulations, so that they can feel "safe." There will be no commercials, except on designated "commercial only" channels, whose sole purpose it is to keep people informed of new product releases and such (and especially movie releases).
A 1 child per person rule shall be strictly enforced (so each couple gets 2). However, if a child is sent to the moon colony for being a lamer, or killed for being a raver, the parent(s) are credited with an extra child, to make sure that the population maintains itself. If the parents have become too old to have another child, their credit goes to an individual/couple of their choice. Sunshiney-happy people who insist on trying to make everybody else happy will be given a serious beatdown and a one week period to stop being so intolerant and disaffirming of other people's emotional states and if they fail to do so they will be sent to live on the moon, as the poseurs' slaves.
Racist speech, ideas, and expression will be allowed, as it is protected as free speech (similarly, TV will not be censored at all. Parents who have an issue with this are welcome to not buy a TV), violent actions against others, be they motivated by racism or not, will not be tolerated however.
Any art, literature, music, or anything you want to say, you have the right to say. No fucking politicians allowed. Fucking cretans, always fucking everything up. Children will be allowed to swear, drink, do drugs, and have sex if they want. It's up to their parents to decide what they can and can't do, not the gov't. NO PARENT or teacher shall ever lie to their children about the 'birds and the bees.' No, stork did not bring you, no we did not find you in the cabbage patch. The truth. The whole political system will be revised and made much more efficient. (Even though I am the monarch, I only impose and modify broad parameters such as those listed above. The people in each locality are free to govern themselves their own way, provided that they stay within the bounds of my parameters. Additionally, the Internet shall be used to create a true directly democratic forum by which people can propose and vote on revision to or complete reworks of the broad parameters that I lay out, although I retain ultimate veto power over the direct democracy.)
Evangelical religions and philosophies shall not be tolerated, and members of such will each be given their own seperate little colony on the moon, isolated from any other colony, where they can go around converting people who already belong to their religion to their heart's content. In the event of any major religiously motivated conflicts, all members of BOTH religions involved shall be sent to a special gladiatorial colony, where they must fight (with no weapons more advanced than swords and other such things) until one side is completely eliminated (surrender is not allowed). If they refuse to fight, then both sides shall be executed.
