“From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs”
Question from the Internet:
“What are your thoughts about “From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs?””
This is the principle a perfect, peaceful, fair, and sustainable Human society can be built.
A perfect society is based on each and every individual receiving the opportunity to contribute to the whole collective with their best abilities in a mutually responsible and mutually complementing manner.
At the same time, each would receive exactly what they need, deserve for their mutual contribution so they could happily and comfortably perform that contribution ceaselessly without any problems.
In that case, nobody would lament the obvious differences between people that result from everybody’s individual uniqueness, different conditions, abilities. Moreover, each would understand that in closed, living, integral systems like Human society there are no more or less important roles, as even the smallest cogwheel can screech to halt, corrupt the whole machinery if it does not turn properly with the other cogwheel.
Since this kind of thinking, arrangement is completely alien to our present mindset, since integration, mutual complementation, making calculations for the collective is against the inherently egocentric, selfish, and subjective calculations we are programmed with, we need a very special, purposeful, and highly practical educational method to achieve it.
While without such a perfect Human society we can’t survive in a Natural system that is based on balance and homeostasis, only the above-mentioned education is capable of changing us without coercion, without misleading propaganda, brainwashing, instead recruiting people through free choice.
