Question from the Internet:
“Which things should be centrally planned, and which things should not?”
I think we need to approach this question differently compared to the usual approach.
Everything is planned centrally, as everything in our lives is determined by Nature’s relentless, deterministic evolutionary plan.
Humanity has been building and destroying civilization after civilization through history’s recurring vicious cycles, and especially in our maximally egocentric, self-serving, narcissistic generation — that is approaching self-destruction on multiple levels — we will learn that we can’t ignore, go against Nature’s developmental plan, we can’t keep breaking Nature’s strict, unforgiving laws that sustain the balance and homeostasis life depends on.
Thus we will need to learn and accept the “central plan”, and our own predetermined, evolutionary cogwheel role in it.
Then we can apply this plan and our role “independently" in our local communities, according to the actual, given circumstances, conditions — but always within the optimal parameters the “central plan" determines.
And the most fundamental elements of that plan in Nature’s fully integrated, interdependent system — we also belong to — are life within the optimal parameters of natural necessities and available resources, and mutually responsible, mutually complementing interconnections, cooperation at all levels.
Since those fundamental principles go against our inherently self-serving, self-justifying, all-consuming nature, we need a unique, purposeful and highly practical educational method that can help us adapt ourselves to Nature’s template and plan.
