Question from the Internet:
“Are individual nature and ambition the biggest causes of the corruption of an ideology?”
Yes. Our individual nature, our self-serving and self-justifying ambitions and calculations and our totally egocentric and subjective worldview are the root causes for any corruption and problems humanity has been experiencing historically and in our days.
And it is the same human nature that makes us blame everybody else but ourselves, making us correct, censor or destroy others while we always justify ourselves.
Only when we finally, humbly and honestly recognize our inherent nature and also develop a true, irrepressible need and willingness to change ourselves, only then will we find true solutions for our problems. Then we will become capable of building a better human society for all of us.
Of course, it will work only when the vast majority of human beings go through this self-recognition and self-change process. On the other hand, obviously it will not happen overnight among billions of people all at once. Thus we need a unique and already sensitive “critical minority” that can start the process by changing and further developing themselves.
Then they will be able to show a shining positive example to others while the general society continues to decline into every deeper crisis and darkness.
