It is exactly what I would have told someone I planned to do with my life when I was fourteen, and thought, perhaps, I might be able to save mankind while operating from a small genius stronghold somewhere in the Pacific. Well, my brain has dried considerably since then, and keeping alert seems almost as daunting a task as world domination...

In the story London abolishes war and capitalism to bring mankind into the age of "laughter."

If one asks whether these sorts of drastic measures ought still to be taken, the following article from the NY Times suggests to me-- well, let each judge for himself!
