How can we change our bad societies into good ones?
Question from the Internet:
“What makes a bad society?”
“Bad society” is made by “bad people” — more correctly, by the bad connection between people.
Society is a network of human beings that exist and work together, creating a certain, closed environment. The life of society is based on the constant and inevitable interconnections and cooperation between the people of that society.
Politics, economics, social events and processes are all the external signs of these human interactions and cooperation.
By default, we are all driven by 100% self-serving, egocentric, individualistic and exploitative aspirations and intentions — knowingly or unknowingly. We behave like this because this is the nature we are born with. All through history, anything and everything we have ever built has been based on this inherent human nature.
This inherently selfish, egocentric and individualistic intention builds the bad societies that are trapped in today. If we want to build “good societies” instead — human societies that resemble Nature’s finely balanced and mutually integrated system — then we have to learn how to build Nature-like mutual integration between us and how to adjust our lifestyle to the optimal parameters of true natural necessities and available resources.
This has nothing to do with our arbitrary and baseless ideologies or philosophies. We have to become similar to and compatible with Nature because Nature’s strict, unchanging and unforgiving laws demand it so.
