Question from the Internet:
“What is the biggest obstacle to world peace? Is it something inherent in mankind or something more like policy that has been developed over time?”
When we look at the helplessly recurring vicious cycles in human history, we can sense that the inability to build sustainable peace is something inherent in human nature.
We are all born inherently self-serving, self-justifying and subjective, we all thrive on succeeding, surviving at each other’s expense.
The problem is that we are not aware of our own nature, we are honestly convinced that we are “decent" people, that we are capable of supporting, even loving, serving others, that we can empathize with others, and only certain people, groups of people, certain nations and the circumstances prevent us from building peace and sustainable societies.
Our positive development towards a better future — through truly peaceful cooperation, mutual responsibility — will start when we all accept that the only thing that needs changing is our own attitude, behaviour towards others.
Then, with the help of a unique, purposeful and practical educational method we will be able to build sustainable peace and mutually complementing global cooperation above and despite everything that rejects people from one another.
