Our only choice is to follow Nature’s laws

Question from the Internet:

“In your opinion, given only these two choices, what would be better for the world and why? A world with strict and clearly defined rules and laws, or a world with no rules or laws at all that depended entirely upon the morality of the people.”

We already know that the second option doesn’t work. Our “morality” is totally egocentric, subjective, I can fully justify exploiting, using others for my own sake in any conditions. Even with our present laws, regulations many people shamelessly cheat, steal, kill, rape, do whatever they want and others don’t do it only as they don’t have the opportunity to act so.

On the other hand, we also know that trying draconian laws, regulations on human society doesn’t work, such societies — regardless of the ideology, culture, religious or secular laws — collapse, explode sooner or later.

We can harness, channel our all-powerful egotistic driving force towards positive, collective, mutually constructive goals, purpose only with the help of a unique, purposeful and practical educational method.

Only such a method can teach us, make us actually feel that a nature—like integration, existing for the sake of each other, for the sake of the whole global humanity is in our own best interest.

Then we can build the perfect human society — in similarity with Nature — without any laws, coercion or misleading propaganda as we will all feel and consciously, willingly follow Nature’s laws that sustain the balance and homeostasis life depends on.
