Adapting Ourselves to a Global Reality
Question from the Internet:
“Would it be possible to live in a world under a universal system, universal currency, no customs or borders? It will be similar to the USA, every state has its own law and regulations.”
We are already living in a globally integrated and fully interdependent world — forced on us by nature’s evolution — but we still refuse to accept it, we still refuse to adapt to it.
Living in a global world, adapting to the inevitable “Global Village” does not require giving up our individual and national identities, it does not even mean changing to a single language or currency.
It requires a change in our attitudes, a change in how we approach each other. We need to learn how to build the crucially necessary, positive, and constructive mutually responsible and mutually complementing connections, cooperation our problem-solving and survival depends on — above and against all our differences, despite everything that separates us from each other.
Almost nothing needs to change “on the ground”, the changes need to unfold in our minds and hearts, understanding, actually feeling our total interdependence, to feel how much we share a single fate, development with each other and that for our collective survival we need to exist, cooperate mutually together.
This is what a proper, purposeful and highly practical education can give us.
