A Chance for Peace now!

Question from the Internet:

Is it a perpetual human delusion to expect world peace when history and current events repeatedly show us that it’s highly unlikely?

Yes and no.

We are delusional to expect world peace by trying, again and again, the same, already failed ideologies, “solutions’, methods. Human history is an inevitably recurring chain of vicious cycles as long as we blindly follow our inherently selfish, egotistic, individualistic, nature.

This way we fulfill Einstein’s definition of insanity, trying the same thing all the time while waiting for different results.

Our inherent ego will never let us build the unique, mutually responsible and mutually complementing interconnections, cooperation above our differences, despite our instinctive distrust, animosity without major changes, adjustments.

Only when we learn — through a unique, purposeful, and practical educational method — how to overcome, neutralize and channel the otherwise irrepressible ego towards positive, constructive, and mutual goals can we expect different outcomes.

If at least a so-called “critical mass” (about 10–15% of the population of any given society, environment) is willing to go through this method, purposefully changing, upgrading themselves, then we will have the ability to shift from the previous blind, instinctive and self-destructing developmental path towards a positive, safer, and peaceful progress.

The Covid-19 pandemic and lockdown, the unfolding volatile, unpredictable events all around the world give us the opportunity to initiate these changes right here, right now, sensing almost immediate, positive, tangible, and realistic results.
