    a specific demand

    A guy working in the white house calls on an underachieving old college buddy, to solve the economy from it’s debt and unemployment troubles. A “fair use” law lets us peruse internet content to reveal the reluctant skibum’s delving into the research, that leads him to an important epiphany for humanity’s future.
    On one hand it’s nothing really, a symbolic gesture of a policy tweak, but on the other hand, it’s EVERYTHING! Here’s a fair way to transition forward to where we’re rewarded more for cooperating and creating instead of competing and conquering.
    Over a few calls, they debate if an inheritance cap will spark the economy, and make us consider what we’re doing here, whereas the current system makes considering such frivolous things just too impractical. How to best share our gifts? we’re too busy getting by to think about that! How’d we let our life’s purpose get marginalized into irrelevance?
    Here's an answer, something specific we can demand, protest for, and adopt ourselves! Spread it around! If this isnt the best answer, at least we’re thinking about what might be. What if we were really just this close to having it work right?
    Oh yeah, it's a snowboard flick/Ski movie thing.
