Our inherently selfish, exploitative nature is the greatest threat to the world
Question from the Internet:
“Annual global polls done by US and EU pollsters found the US to be the biggest threat to world peace and security. Why are so many Americans oblivious to this information?”
We are all born with an inherently self-serving, self-justifying, egocentric and exploitative nature. We justify whatever we do in any given circumstances.
America represents the peak of this selfish, exploitative human development. We can see how the US is ready to consume the whole world, they try to control everything and everybody and most of the world simply accepted this as an inevitable fact.
Just look at how they control even the Ukrainian war from provoking it to dictating the sanctions and responses, using Ukraine and Europe as cannon fodders for their own selfish purposes to weaken and defeat Russia. And most of the world stands by and cooperates although there was no international consultation, no UN agreement or resolution, while most of the sanctions, the blockade against Russian individuals simply for being Russia and taking away Russian property all over the world is simply illegal.
But nobody cares as America dictates and according to them only the Russians are evil and they need to be destroyed at all cost. Even Hollywood says so.
And the US basically had the world in its hands without any rivals since 1990, controlling, manipulating everything through the economy, military and the all-powerful media and entertainment industry and still, it is not enough. Just like cancer, or an incurable addict our egoistic nature has to spread, grow and take everything for itself until it self-destructs.
But again, it is not America’s fault. They represent as cartoon characters our inherent, cancer-like human nature at its peak. And like all other such self-serving, hedonistic, all-powerful civilizations they are already collapsing, together with the whole world which is following them, coveting them since we are all driven by the same desires and inclinations.
The question really is if we have to go through a total collapse, or at least a crucially important critical minority of people can recognize that the problem is not in certain people, in certain nations or religions and cultures. The problem is the inherent human nature that drives all of us.
As a result, it is not people, nations, cultures or religions that we need to defeat, get rid of or censor. It is ourselves that we need to study, correct and further develop until we all become capable of building positive, constructive, mutually responsible and mutually complementing cooperation our problem-solving ability and continuing collective survival depends on.
This has nothing to do with our arbitrary human ideologies, philosophies religions and systems. We need to acknowledge and follow Nature’s strict and unforgiving laws that govern the general balance and homeostasis life depends on.
So we have no choice if we have to survive and co-exist. The American Dream is over — a long time ago — we need to wake up from this nightmare our inherent ego is causing. We need to learn how to exist, cooperate and co-exist like Nature.
