Our socioeconomic problems are the symptoms of the broken relationship between people

Question from the Internet:

“Can any societal problems be converted to economical problems? Can you give examples to prove your point?”

The economy, society is like external signs, symptoms of the relationships, the attitude between people.

Thus problems with Human relationships, appear as social or economic problems.

The present global socioeconomic crisis for example is a sign of how broken, unsustainable the present Human relationship is between people and nations.

We are trying to live, survive at the expense of each other in a self-serving, self-justifying, egotistic manner, while Nature’s fully integrated, interdependent system demands from us the opposite, collective, mutually responsible and mutually complementing connections, cooperation.

So, if we use the socioeconomic problems wisely, diagnosing the root cause — the broken connections between people due to our inherent ego separating, rejecting us from each other — then we could treat, heal that root cause and rebuild Human society and our economic system on different values, principles, foundations — following Nature’s perfectly balanced, integral template.
