How can we see each other in the most perfect light?

Question from the Internet:

“Is it realistic or idealistic to say everybody deserves respect and all people in the globe worth the same?”

At this stage, when we all look at the world from our inherently egocentric, subjective, self-serving and self-justifying point of view, what you stated is idealistic and false.

We all put ourselves above everybody else and enjoy finding faults and crimes in others since it justifies our selves and places our selves above others even more.

And since we see everybody in a very limited and distorted way through egocentric and subjective filters, we can’t even examine or judge who others are, what their role and function in the world us and how they are performing in those roles.

Only when we build a perfect, Nature-like human society, where each and every person find their most optimal, mutually responsible and mutually complementary role and purpose for the whole, will we be able to judge everybody according to their merit. For this, we all need to learn how to rise above our inherent perception and consciousness by acquiring a new, totally selfless and objective view of others and the world.

And then, looking at everybody through our newly acquired, selfless and objective viewpoint, seeing the whole system in totality and everybody’s most optimal role in it, can we say and tangibly feel and know that everybody deserves respect and we are all worth the same — regardless of the role or purpose we fulfil towards others.

After all, in an integrated living system, each element is equally important and irreplaceable as the whole can function and survive only when all the comprising elements perform their mutual contribution most optimally.
