Although it is not bound to happen anytime soon, I believe in the success of implementing a resource-based economy. All imaginable problems can be solved with science and technology, without the need for a monetary system, states, business, politics or any law whatsoever. Only the laws of physics can be imposed on us.

My dream for the next decade is to see Lebanon as the blooming and prosperous technology pillar of the Arab world, that sets the example of a country purely driven by technical growth, progress and innovation, for the sole purpose of improving people’s living conditions, which I believe is the key to global peace.

I seek to promote education and eradicate ignorance, so that one day we can witness the first real scientific and technical leap in Lebanese history. One day, I wish to see groups of architects, scientists and engineers showing the world how the resources and time dedicated to war can be managed efficiently into building a better world.
