What Would Make Civilization Better?

Okay, taking the flip side of the last post, what books should be kept to make the future better? What technologies? What moral or cultural ideas? What actions? I'm going to cheat a little in two basic regards:

  • Assume that human nature (good and bad) will not change.
  • Assume that divine intervention--the Second Coming, or otherwise--will not occur for the next 1,000 years.

Other than that, the sky's the limit. I'll post my ideas tomorrow
