Achieving social order

Question from the Internet:

At the moment — and all through history — social order has been achieved and maintained by force, coercion, or through reluctantly agreed upon restrictive laws.

If our inherently self-serving, self-justifying, exploitative and hateful nature could run rampant, we would live in chaos and everybody would rob, rape, kill everybody else.

We can see this even todsy, when for any reason social security is disrupted and the masses violently roam on the streets doing whatever they want until armed forces try to restore order.

We shouldn’t have any illusions about our inherent nature, when it breaks free of its shackles it is capable of anything — in any of us!

The only way of achieving and maintaining social order in a positive way - where people willingly interconnect and sustain the life-giving, mutually responsible, mutually complementing fabric of society above and against their instinctive behaviour — is through a unique integral education that can explain, and make us feel how much more beneficial a mutual, collective existence is compared to our original, self-destructive, cancer-like behaviour.
