Fitting the “raw Capitalist Human” into Nature’s “Communistic system”

Question from the Internet:

“Why do many people still believe in communism even though it has been proven throughout history that it does not work?”

First of all human history is a helplessly recurring chain of vicious cycles. No “ism”, ideology, philosophy, or the systems built upon them survived as they were all inevitably distorted, corrupted by our inherently self-serving, self-justifying, egocentric, and exploitative nature.

As a result he the “left” fails we run towards the “right” and when the “right” fails we run back to the “left”, but we can replace “right/left” with any other “pairs” Humanity has been trying and failing in.

Right now it is Capitalism and the so-called Western values that have failed globally, as we managed to corrupt the most ideal looking combo of liberal democracy and free-market capitalism. So people think we should try socialism or even Communism as we simply have nothing else in our toolbox since all other combinations of the systems also failed whenever we tried.

As long as we continue our blind and instinctive selfish, egotistic development driven by our original software, we will continue to fulfill Einstein’s definition for insanity: trying the same things again and again while hoping for different results.

The only solution is to change ourselves, change the Human being that keeps failing. We would need to rise above our blind, egotistic, subjective, and exploitative instincts, so we could finally examine our own inherent program, Nature’s system we exist in, and see how we could adapt ourselves to the system and its strict, unchanging laws.

Then we will understand why we could not make any program, ideology, the system we tried so far work: our inherent nature, the program is “raw capitalistic” — excessive consumption, accumulating resources for ourselves while succeeding and surviving at the expense of others; while Nature’s system we exist in and have to adapt to, works on “Communistic principles” — selfless, altruistic interconnections, calculations made for the sake of the whole collective above and against any individualistic calculations.

Thus we need a very unique education, a purposeful and practical scientific method that can help us adapt our raw capitalistic nature to Nature’s Communism in a way, that we do not suppress our egos, we do not stifle our competitive spirit and our insatiable desire for more while maintaining everybody’s individual and national uniqueness, abilities.

And while this all sounds like a mission impossible, it is actually possible through the above-mentioned method. All we need is the recognition that we need to change in a fundamental way, and the willingness to change ourselves above and against our instincts, original program.
