Only changing ourselves can help

Question from the Internet:

“What will happen to the world if politics was removed completely?”

It would not change much, something else, something similar would replace it.

I think in our generations we slowly start to understand that it does not matter which politician we choose, which party governs, it does not matter what political, economic, or social system we try, we can’t build sustainable, equal, peaceful societies.

Instead of changing, rearranging the decorations, superficial layers, finally, we need to deal with the real problem, the root cause.

And that is the inherently self-serving, self-justifying, egocentric, and exploitative nature that drives each and every human being to a certain extent, more or less.

Thus it does not matter what ideology, philosophy, religion we follow, it does not matter what we build or try, it will always become corrupt and will fail as long as our inherent nature remains unchanged.

Thus we urgently need to find and apply a unique, empirical, natural scientific method that can help us correct, upgrade our own nature, so we could think, decide and act above, independent of our inherent egos, channeling, harnessing the awesome power of the ego towards positive, constructive, mutually beneficial, collective goals, purposes.
