How to make the world a better place?

Question from the Internet:

“Do you think the world can be a better place or will it just get worse?”

I am certain that the world will become a better place, we do not have a choice.

The world is not a “good place” right now — and it has never been a “good place” through history — as we are driven by an inherently self-serving, self-justifying, subjective, and individualistic ego, and all our civilizations, including today’s, is built by and for this ego.

As a result, due to the completely egocentric and subjective viewpoint, everybody has, we can’t even agree on what a “good place” is, as each defines it according to their own selfish viewpoints, ideas, aspirations. This is why society is in disarray and each newly elected government immediately destroys, changes what the previous leadership has done just to prove they are better.

We can build a “truly good place” only when we take an absolute template and all accept it, work towards it. This template is given by Nature’s finely balanced, fully integrated system, which can create and nurture life.

And in order to see, understand Nature’s template, and become capable of aligning ourselves with it we have to change. We have to build “Nature-like”, selfless, mutually responsible, mutually complementing, positive interconnections and cooperation with each other above and against our inherent nature, above everything that separates, rejects people from each other.

Then as we become similar to Nature — against the contrast of the present selfish, egoistic human system — we will be able to attain Nature’s laws, governance, the cause and effect processes that create and sustain life and optimal development.

This is how we can build a “good, natural place” — together.
