Can we make peace more profitable than war?
Question from the Internet:
“Can peace be more profitable than war by preventing it from happening in the first place?”
Yes it is possible, but only if we understand that we are all part of a single, fully integrated and interdependent Human “super-organism”.
At the moment we sense ourselves as standalone, individual beings that have to survive at each other’s expense. This is how we are programmed by default.
Nature’s evolution is trying to show us - by forcing us into the globally integrated and interdependent world we find ourselves in today - that we can’t solve problems, we won’t be able to survive individually, through the usual ruthless, exclusive competition, wars.
In this “new world” our original instincts, inclinations, behavior make us act like cancer.
This is why we need a very special, purposeful and highly practical educational method which can teach us, moreover help us feel what it means to exist in such a “Nature-like”, global, integral system.
Then we will gradually accept, understand that since the health, success, survival of the individual is inevitably, irrevocably connected, depends on the health, success and survival of the whole collective, it is more worthwhile, profitable to aim for connections, peace, fair distribution than to pursue mutual exploitation, war as we have been doing before.
