How can we build a more altruistic human society?

Question from the Internet:

“Would society be a better place if everyone becomes altruistic and works for free?”

On one hand, if we say that people have to become altruistic and work for free everybody would run away in an instant.

On the other hand, if we do not change how we relate to each other and build selfless, unconditionally, mutually serving, complementing interconnections with each other — based on the integrated template of Nature — we will not survive.

This is why we need a unique, purposeful, and practical educational method, that can help us understand and “viscerally” feel the inevitable, unbreakable interdependence between us Nature’s laws obligate. Then we would also be able to understand and feel what we lose by refusing to change how we relate to each other and what we can gain by purposefully, methodically, consciously changing human interaction and the fabric of human society.

In the end, we will have no other choice but to exist in total compatibility with Nature, building human connections, human societies that resemble how integrated, living Natural systems — like our biological body for example — exist, operate.

But we need to use positive motivation, positive examples to draw people to such a state, above and against our inherent nature. Only when people join willingly, fully understanding that the fundamental self and lifestyle changes are for their own benefit, only then will it work.

And only the right, practical education can facilitate such a process.
