What could we accomplish if the human race worked as one?

Edited on Sat May-01-04 10:05 PM by nu_duer
If the entire human race decided to stop, right here, right now - just stop everything that we are doing, set everything aside - for a day, a week or however long it took - and decided that we must all work together toward the greater good, starting from scratch, what could we do? What would we do? What would the priorities of the human race be? And what is the ultimate goal for this planet - for our race?

And what the fuck are we doing instead?
