    I'd like everybody on this message board to write and post two essays. The basis for both would be "What if I were to travel 200 years into the future", but the difference between the two are:

    Essay 1: "What if I were to travel 200 years into the future, and found that the liberals had overwhelmingly won the political control of the world a hundred and fifty year before. This is what the world would be like:"

    Essay 2: "What if I were to travel 200 years into the future, and found that the conservatives had overwhelmingly won the political control of the world a hundred and fifty year before. This is what the world would be like:"

    Without nit-picking about how I phrased the above, (you know what I mean), I'd really like to know what you all think is the ultimate end goals of the two strains of political thought.

    Liberals- No Posting the lyrics from John Lennons 'Imagine'!

    A good rep to the best post!

    Ok, 200 years in the Future, regardless of conservatives or liberals being in power for the past 150 years, I'd expect to get more than 6 rep points for writing this essay.

    Essay one has already been done. I believe you might know it as "1984".

    Essay number 2 is difficult to imagine. A world where people are actually responsible for their own actions...Wow.
