As a brief introduction, I'd like to post the following article:

Ban all schools? That's a dangerous thought
By Roger Highfield, Science Editor
(Filed: 03/01/2006)

The Earth can cope with global warming, schools should be banned and we should learn to love bacteria. These are among the dangerous ideas revealed by a poll of leading thinkers.

John Brockman, the New York-based literary agent and publisher of The Edge website posed the question: what is your dangerous idea? in reference to a controversial book by the philosopher Daniel Dennett that argued that Darwinism was a universal acid that ate through virtually all traditional beliefs.

Brockman received 116 responses to his challenge from Nobel laureates, futurists and creative thinkers.

Most of them seemed pretty sensible in the context of actually trying to solve underlying problems within society. However, the methods suggested in most cases probably wouldn't work too well, but it is a good way of getting their point across that there are a lot of problems in society that need to be addressed.
