On the brink of an inevitable social transformation

Question from the Internet:

“Will this decade be the most socially transformative time in human history?”

Yes, in this next decade we will have to completely transform human society.

We will have to transform human society so we achieve compatibility with Nature’s fully integrated, mutually complementing and interdependent system, otherwise, we will not survive evolution.

Natural evolution is the “survival of the fittest”, meaning the survival of those species that can fully integrate into the system, becoming its positive, mutually responsible and mutually complementing part.

At the moment humanity — a collection of instinctively egocentric, subjective, and self-serving individuals that succeed and survive at each other’s expense — is totally incompatible with Nature’s integral system.

Thus we will have to transform ourselves and how we relate, communicate and behave with each other.

We can reach this transformation in two different ways. One is continuing our present direction and then reaching such crisis situations, wars and total socio-economic collapse (all are on the way already) that will bring on such intolerable suffering that we will have no other choice but to change.

We can also bring on the necessary transformation in a wise, positive, proactive way, willingly and consciously learning how we can achieve the required compatibility and integration with nature. Then we will not need to go through the incomprehensible physical suffering before we change.
