How can we make the world a better place?

Question from the Internet:

“Does making the world a better place start with an individual?”

Yes.

Making the world a better place starts with unique individuals who recognize that the root cause for all the problems, conflicts, disasters and our inability to comprehend and solve those problems is our own, inherently self-serving, self-justifying, exploitative and individualistic nature.

When such individuals cannot stand this cancer-like original program to control them incessantly and have an overwhelming desire to change things by changing themselves first, then such individuals, together, by mutually supporting, complementing each other can actually, practically change their “operating software” from 100% egocentric, subjective self-service to the selfless, unconditional service and support of others and the whole system.

Only this way can we make the world a better place and not by blaming, correcting, oppressing, manipulating, defeating and destroying others.

Even if a small, critical minority of people start working on changing the world by changing themselves together, they can fundamentally, positively influence others and the whole system.
