Peace based on the laws of Nature

Question from the Internet:

“Without law, would there be peace in the world?”

On one hand, you are right. Without laws, we would have even greater chaos in our societies and we would be in constant conflict and war between individuals and nations, people would literally kill and consume each other on the streets. This is how our fully developed, ruthless, insatiable, excessively consuming and hateful human nature works.

On the other hand, we can see that our “human laws” are ineffective and it does not matter what ideologies, philosophies, religions and oppressive structures we use. At the end of the day, people manipulate and exploit each other and human history is a helplessly recurring chain of vicious cycles where the endless cycle of wars is only temporarily paused by ineffective and unfair peace treaties and “agreements”.

Only when we start using Nature’s strict and unforgiving laws as foundations for rebuilding human relationships and human societies can we hope for a better, more peaceful and sustainable future.

Only Nature’s laws and Nature’s finely balanced and mutually integrated blueprint can help us control and harness our inherently destructive nature, so instead of consuming everything and everybody around us we build a positive and constructive human system that is also seamlessly integrated into Nature.
