Indeed. Now, consider the Lennon song "Imagine".
Imagine we could defeat all war and crime. But keep
the other stuff the singing commie wanted imagine
away, the countries, possessions, etc, and I suppose
religion (if we must. Im told a lot of people cant get
along without it, so Ill have to take their word.)

If we imagine away war and crime, then there goes
hunger for the most part, and most other social ills.
So now the song goes:

Imagine all the people... living to get more money.

What is money good for, other than to (directly or
indirectly) get more and better sex, right? So we
would be imagining a world that is driven by sex.
