Individual human rights in a globally integrated world

Question from the Internet:

“Does the human right ‘Right to personal liberty’ mean it’s ok for people to do things that break the norms, culture or traditions of their society but aren’t illegal? That’s to live your life however you want as long as you don’t break the law?”

It is a very complex question that is becoming more complex and perplexing daily.

On one hand, society's norms, culture and traditions have become so twisted, reshaped, revised and raped by certain groups who hold control over the incessant propaganda that we can’t even recognize the world we live in anymore.

On the other hand, we also started to learn that we do not have any “personal liberty” or personal right to do whatever we want, regardless of observing the laws or not.

Our present existence and the human society we exist in are shaped and built by our inherently egocentric, subjective, self-serving and self-justifying nature. What we call the “norms or values” of society is basically the external form of the tyranny of a small but powerful minority over the majority. This minority builds a Matrix that controls everybody, but those in control are also helplessly controlled and destroyed by their own egos.

This toxic Matrix we call “human society” (regardless of the actual ideology or system highlighting it) is now collapsing since whatever we do is incompatible with the Natural system we exist in.

Whether we like it or not, accept it or not, we evolved into a globally integrated and interdependent world by the pressure of Nature’s laws of integration and as a result of Nature’s evolution relentlessly driving its system towards the most optimal mutual integration above diversity.

In this global and integrated system, we do not have any individual freedom; our only “right” and “free choice” is to willingly and consciously learn how to adapt ourselves to Nature’s strict and unforgiving laws that give the general balance and homeostasis life depends on.

So while we are watching our human system collapsing and slipping through our fingers, we need to learn why we ended up in a final crisis like this and how we can salvage our human existence before it is too late.
