What kind of world would we end up with if there was an international law that forced everyone to wear…the exact same kind and size of shoe? In fifty years, what kind of world would we end up with if nearly everyone complied? Too not comply would mean a death penalty to be enforced at once, so there is no getting around it.
Only one shoe size is decided on by a world governing body who can expect nearly 100% compliance. Only a small fraction of the population lucks out at any given time with a pair of correct fitting shoes, and those are known as “the free runners”, who are the priveleged class who are treated as celebrities.
Would we have less overall mobility and ground wars as a result of reduced mobility?
Would we have quite a few in wheelchairs because of foot conditions caused by feet being bound by too-small shoes?
Would little kids with gigantic shoes on their feet and the rest of the population forced to wear odd fitting shoes and limping around be less mobile, and thus more heavier as a result, making them even more sendentary?
