Can money buy love and peace?

Opinion from the Internet:

I think wars are incentivized by ego and also monetization. Perhaps love and kindness can be incentivized with money as well.

Well, we already have that. We can all “love” by demand, we even donate millions, billions of dollars as long as we get something in return. We can do anything we even sacrifice our own physical health, and life for the right payment, and reward.

But this is not the sort of “love” that will help us, save us.

For true solutions, we will have to learn a completely different “modus operandi” which we cannot even comprehend right now. We are born with a “single-minded” consciousness and perception that is 100% self-serving, self-justifying, and egocentric. All are calculations, decisions and actions are only about the subjective self.

And this “modus operandi” makes us behave like cancer in a system that is totally integrated and interdependent.

We will have to willingly, consciously “upgrade” our original software in a way, that we become capable of making calculations, deciding and acting for the sake of others as we do for ourselves.

And for that, we cannot use any of our arbitrary human ideologies, philosophies, or religions that are all designed by and for the selfish ego. We need to learn and adapt ourselves to how Nature organizes its integral, life-giving, life-nurturing system through its finely balances general homeostasis life depends on.

This is the challenge that is ahead of us, but without adapting ourselves to Nature’s laws and integral temp[late we will not survive. So this is not a “money” issue, it is a conscious “self-upgrade”, self-change issue.
