Humanity suffering from alienation

Question from the Internet:

“Are we determined to suffer from alienation (philosophically)?”

By our inherently selfish, egocentric, subjective and individualistic nature we are destined to suffer from alienation, from distancing from others, from constant, increasing distrust and animosity towards others.

On the other hand, in order to solve our growing global problems that threaten our collective existence, in order to facilitate our collective survival — and there is no individual, national survival for humanity when Nature views us as a single entity, single species — in the completely integrated, interdependent system we live in, we need to build mutually responsible, mutually complementing cooperation above and against everything that separates, rejects us from each other.

This can happen with the help of a special, purposeful and highly practical educational method that can teach us, make us feel our total interdependence. It can also help us see, feel what we gain by building a dynamic, versatile, living and sustainable Human “super-organism" from the diverse, seemingly incompatible, individual parts.
