I want to make a proposal. I think it would be fantastic if on the next full moon, December 18, 2013 everyone who couldd used their magic to make a improve the very real issues going on in the world. There are a bunch of problems that could be solved:
Bad leadership - many issues occur because those incharge cannot agree, have their hands tied, or don't look at long term consequences. Magic should be used to improve the wisdom of leaders and politicians, do damage to those who are corrupt, and improve the success of actions for everyone's benefit.
What this could fix - Unnecessary wars, better legislation on economics, jobs, food production, and social welfare, destroy corruption
- Natural Events - Improve the abilities of scientists activists and politicians to better deal with what's going on around us like superstorms, droughts, destruction of ecosystems, flooding, etc. If you can do weather magic and impact the weather itself do that. Another issue is plagues. Anti-biotic resistant bacteria and rapidly spreading viruses may bring us back to the days when an infection was as bad as cancer
- Social trends - Use magic to ameliorate situations like discrimination, religious radicalism, chronic poverty, etc.
I think it should all be done on one night because it would improve the ritual aspect of magic, and I believe give more energy to the various causes. If you do this please try to keep personal politics out of it. As you can tell I'm liberal, but the magic I will do won't involve specific outcomes to match my politics. Instead I'll try to set up the best possible outcome whether I agree with it or not.
All schools of magical thought, enochian, hemetic, wiccan, voodoo, seidhr, etc. are applicable and welcome
If you want to try something like this on December 18, 2013 leave a post maybe saying what you'd like to try, to keep the thread up while being relevant. Try spreading the idea to others you know who do magic.
Please post and say what you think
