How can we make our diversity and differences work for us?
Question from the Internet:
“Is it better for society if it is monocultural or multicultural?”
Most importantly, we learn how to connect to each other and cooperate like parts and elements of Nature do. By default, we are all 100% egocentric, subjective and exploitative. We all thrive in ruthless competition and succeed at the expense of each other.
For this, we can use any excuses, differences, and diversity to justify why we need to be better than others and why we have the right to control and manipulate others.
Thus it does not have to be cultural or ethnic differences; any differences, even the tiniest ones within one’s own family, can prompt separation, conflict and war just to justify and prove that we are better, stronger, wealthier and more respected than others.
This is why willingly and consciously need to recognize the instinctive desires and intentions that turn us against each other, so above and against them, we can learn how to mutually integrate and cooperate like Nature’s elements do.
Without rebuilding human societies based on nature’s finely balanced and mutually integrated template, there is no safe, peaceful and sustainable human society.
On the other hand, if we learned from Nature how to interconnect and mutually complement each other above and despite anything that separates and rejects individuals and nations from each other, our diversity and vast differences will only strengthen and improve our state and fuel a positive and constructive collective development.
