What obstacles need to be overcome, what problems do we need to solve to attain flourishing lives for all of the world’s people, now and forever?

Wise reflection on the questions:
  • What kind of world do we want?
  • What obstacles need to be overcome, what problems need to be solved to allow such a world to emerge? and
  • What are the relationships among those problems?
leads to the following outline. On-going reflection on these questions will continually refine this open-source outline.

This outline is a cause-effect diagram identifying causes of suboptimal life experiences—failure for everyone in the world to flourish and experience the greatest possible well-being, including all that is of value now along with ever increasing well-being and value forever.

For visual impact, these causes are also presented as a word cloud.
