What Goes Around Comes Around
Today’s prompt is: If I Ruled the World – You’re given the super power to change one law of nature.
Oh boy! If I could change one rule of nature it would be the Wiccan “Law” Everything you do, for or against another, returns to you threefold; if not in this lifetime, then in the next. I’d delete the last phrase from “if not in this lifetime…” to immediately. (Okay, so I fudged a little.)
Just think of the benefits: A mugger is mugged (three times), a rapist is raped (three times), a murderer is murdered (two failed and a final that works?) Just think how crime rates would drop! Cruelty repaid. Bullies bullied. Polluters having to live and breathe in their pollution.
And on the upside – courtesies reciprocated three times, love all around, Earth would be healed. I can’t really think of any draw backs.
I’d leave gravity the way it is. I’d leave the laws of physics, chemistry, and biology alone as well. For me, changing the way the human animal acts is a more worthy use of a super power than anything else. There’s very little “noble” to the savagery committed by humans, especially the civilized ones.
