Question from the internet:
“Why does it take such a long time for people to catch up with reality when it comes to economic policies that can be fair to and help everyone?”
The reason why we can’t build a Human system that is fair to all, and even when we try it turns into a disaster, is that deep inside our inherent nature, program is “raw capitalistic”.
We are all born with a nature that makes calculations for itself, and we all - knowingly, unknowingly - try to develop, succeed and survive at each other's expense.
Now of course when we look at the world which is built alongside a pyramid model this is not so obvious. After all the majority of the people can just get by, they don't have any chance of exploiting others, accumulate wealth, control others.
Most of them honestly believe that we could live in a socialist, communistic system without problems, and we would all be happy to make calculations for the whole collective, and even give up part our what we item for the sake of others.
When communism was introduced in Russia and Eastern Europe - especially through the initial revolutions - it brought great joy, elevated spirit, hope to the majority of the people. And it lasted through taking the excess wealth away from the rich, stabilizing economy and society.
But when the lifestyle of not having personal possessions, not having the ability to accumulate personal wealth, the notion of all becoming the same without much individual differences, competition set in, it has become unbearable for our inherent nature.
This is why the regime gradually turned oppressive, developing terror organizations to keep people in line, while the leaders became early the same tyrants they started their revolutions against.
On the other hand the Natural system we live in, we are integral parts of us purely “communistic”. Each and every element of Nature -except Humans - instinctively integrate into the system, making calculations only for the sake of the whole, unconditionally serving the system.
And the more we Humans develop, the more our population grows, the more we become increasingly incompatible with Nature's laws with our “self-serving, excessively consuming socioeconomic systems”.
Since Nature's strict laws - that sustain the balance and homeostasis life and optional development depend on - are obligatory for us as well, we will have to build “Nature-like”, “communistic” societies in order to become compatible with the system and its laws.
But we have to do it without coercion, without terror, without misleading propaganda, in a way that we don't suppress, but instead utilize our original nature that thrives on competition, comparison between people, using our unique, individual qualities, abilities maximally while receiving just, appropriate renumeration for our mutually complementing cooperation.
Most importantly this unique rebuilding cannot happen based on any Human philosophy, any political, religious ideology. We need to rebuild Humanity in this revolutionary new way in order to adapt ourselves to Nature's state, to become the system's conscious partners, supporters instead of being a harmful, “foreign body” in it.
And this is all possible through a unique, purposeful and highly practical educational method, that can guide us in how to purposefully, consciously recognize and channel, harness our inherently “raw capitalistic” nature towards, in service of a Nature-like, “communistic” Human society.
