If you had the power to alter the course of humanity

What would you do?

Mindship
You mean like a super power?

I'd cast a global spell: any harm a person intends to others comes back upon that person. You fire a gun - the bullet hits you. You try to embezzle - your account gets drained. Throw a punch, lie about someone, launch a nuke: one way or the other the aggressor suffers the consequences; the target, nothing. I would render violence in any and all forms directly and immediately counterproductive. This would either force people to talk out their differences; or, if they insist on causing harm, they would render themselves utterly powerless at best; at worst, thoroughly and forever extinct.

cool

I'd infect all mankind with a virus kind of like the Facade Virus

The Facade virus (Comics) was used to make everyone on Earth 1 Color for a short period of time - not forever - just for a short period of time, everyone, everywhere was one color.

Of course the virus could have been used to wreak all manner of havoc, had it fallen into the wrong hands in its 'ready' state.

I think I'd create and program a sentient virus to make Karma an actual thing.

So if some random person is due a good turn people who move around them will be aware of, say... a 'gut feeling' or 'strong intuition' that - hey that person's okay... in this way people would be more alert to acknowledge and appreciate the good in the people who move around them

the virus would feed on cancerous cells, things like strep bacteria, toxins our bodies ccreate and communicate from colony to colony - person to person via some mechanism which I'd have to create which can't be registered by animals, humans or instruments (so yeah magic)

Or I could just create magic which can only be used to genuinely do good and make it so that this magic would (like a GL ring) find its way to where it is needed.

Naturally, I'd keep a little powar for mysel for super powers and abilities which I would 100% use responsibly and not for lulz.

I like your karma idea. I've been burned too many times by doing the right thing. Doing the right thing is not always the best idea to create the best possible outcome for everyone and that sucks.

So lets say a police office runs into some dude who is trying to rape a woman. The police officer tries to taze the rapist. The effect of your spell: the police officer gets electrocuted, meanwhile the woman rapes the guy that assaulted her. I approve.

The would-be rapist would suffer a hydraulics issue: too much pressure leading to a literal cap burst ...

... though I suppose a proactive stroke or heart attack would be more along natural lines. I'd have to adjust the sardonic factor after running the spell for a while.

I'd f*ck with the politicians. ALL of them.

Anyone ever see the movie Liar Liar? Okay, picture that...but it applies to literally every politician.

Looks like Bernie Sanders would prosper and you'd get that scary Socialism.

Oh, and Ron Paul. He'd prosper.


And every Italian Mother-in-Law would prosper. I am told that Jewish mother-in-laws are the same. No experience.

"That's racist, dadudemon!" When did Italians become a race? You're racist.

But 99% of Dems and Republicans would be f*cked.

So a Cop trying to Stop a Rape is a "Bad Thing"?

So many people will lose their jobs...

Mindship said "Any harm". I'd say being tazed is pretty harmful.

Perhaps there'll be more need for other jobs, like mental health workers. I can see people getting super-stressed-out simply because they can't harm others ... and perhaps they'd harm themselves instead ("I'll show you! -- you can't stop me!"wink.

H'm. I wonder how the spell would handle deliberate self-harm? You try to shoot yourself and the bullet just disappears? Heh. That would really prove frustrating, and perhaps entertaining.

In any event, I appreciate your critique. I would not want to appear amateurish at this.

So if you liked getting spanked or choked during sex, you'd have to spank and choke your partner instead? I guess all physical sports would be out too. Though I'd love to see Kane go for a chokeslam only to be flung violently through the air by some unseen force laughing out loud

I would make every one that wants the U.S to become a Socialist Country be forced to live for 2 years in Venezuela, and not in the upper echelons of the society.

cool I like the way you think. Instant karma is the ultimate justice.

PS: Go Brooklyn! (where I lived as a kid)

BackFire
I'd take a shit on Hitler when he was a child.

One Big Mob
I'd make sure to be recorded in every different important age of history beating off. Same name and face.

From cave drawings to pyramids there would be a myriad of images showing me beating off in different poses. I'd leave a perfectly preserved pubic hair behind in every location so today's scientists are baffled.

Tribe leader Bran, Pharaoh Bran, Bran the Jacker, King Bran the first, President Bran, etc all have the same pubic hair and all are depicted beating off.

Now that's a legacy!

This sounds cool, although there would be loss for some of us. MMA is my favorite sport, and I enjoy kickboxing and such. Losing them would suck, but I guess martial arts wouldn't be necessary in this new world.

Losing them would suck, but I guess martial arts wouldn't be necessary in this new world. Another tweak I have to implement. I like martial arts too. Perhaps as long as genuinely good sportsmanship is practiced, the spell would allow "competitive damage". After all, sports are consensual, meant to be enjoyed, and attitude/intent should count.

But then ... what if the damage is significant (eg, brain trauma). Maybe the main effect of the spell could kick in when such damage becomes imminent.

Damn this is hard.
