Someone who I wished was the mayor in my town

“If we in the Third World measure our success or failure as a society in terms of income, we would have to classify ourselves as losers until the end of time,” declares Enrique Peñalosa, who served as mayor of Bogotá, Colombia. “So with our limited resources, we have to invent other ways to measure success. This might mean that all kids have access to sports facilities, libraries, parks, schools, nurseries.”

Rivalry? Not so much!

Cain and Abel, Superman and Lex Luthor, Liverpool and Manchester United, we all have heard (or even have been going through) some sort of rivalry. Rivalry breeds from competition, and we all are competitive beings. It's not necessarily a bad thing. From competition and our eagerness to be the top dog come innovation, and ideally that's supposed to make our lives getting better every day.

Green Screen : The Dystopian Future Ecology in Contemporary Sci-fi Movies

There are at least two reasons why I enjoy science-fiction in nearly every story telling medium.
One, sci-fi deals with the "what if" scenarios of everything we live in today : society, science, technology and differentiate them to the point that it relies on ours suspension of disbelief but somehow those imaginary elements are still within in the range of scientific possibility or scientifically postulated laws of nature (though some elements in a story might still be pure imaginative speculation).
Exploring the consequences of such differences is the traditional purpose of science fiction, making it a "literature of ideas". Science fiction is largely based on writing rationally about alternative possibilities and I don't know why, but I always love exploring new possibilities especially regarding the choices we make today.
