Building principles of a nation

Question from the Internet:

“How are solidarity, citizenship, and community engagement interrelated?”

In an ideal case scenario, these concepts should be mutually interrelated.

A citizen of a nation ideally would pledge to “mutual guarantee" — the original Israeli nation formed at Sinai provides the gold-standard example of what it means — which means unconditional solidarity, selfless engagement in the community, “loving, serving others as oneself".

Of course, this world properly only if so members of a given society, nation pledge to it.

While this seems like an unreachable utopia in our days, in truth without this mutual guarantee — both on a national and also on a global scale — we will not be able to solve the mounting national and global problems all over the world, and we will simply not be able to safeguard our collective Human survival in Nature’s fully integrated, interdependent, lawful system.

Thus we urgently need a unique, purposeful and highly practical educational method, that can teach us how to build mutual responsibility, mutual guarantee above and against our instinctively egotistic, individualistic, subjective nature — by borrowing Nature’s integral template for rebuilding our mutual interconections, societies.
