Stronger together

I fully understand that when I write about the need for global unity, selfless, altruistic, mutually responsible, mutually complementing cooperation it raises instinctive rejection, concern from people.

Some fear the loss of individuality, the right of the individual, loss of diversity that is necessary for optimal development.

What they say and what I suggest do not contradict.

We need to unite and build a multi-colored, mutually responsible and mutually complementing “Human mosaic” above, together with our individual and national identities, uniqueness, preserving, augmenting everybody’s talents so they could all contribute to the whole with their best abilities.

The “right and best interest of the individual” and the “right and best interest of the collective” is one and the same as soon as we start to understand what truly it means to exist in a fully integrated and interdependent system.

Finally what tried to get across is that this is not a personal opinion, it is not a political ideology or a religious, mystical idea. Nature’s laws of integration demand such a united existence from us since we are a single species in Nature’s fully integrated system.

Our Human advantage is that we received the chance to reach our own integration by free choice, progressing towards it consciously, willingly before Nature forces us to do so. There is no individual survival in an integral system, we have a chance of surviving only together.

Today we have to make the same decision, on our own consciously, that single-cell organisms made unconsciously billions of years ago.
