Question from the Internet:
“Do you think humans were meant to work for a living, to keep them occupied, or to not work and explore the world, etc.?”
Today we live in a consumerist society, where we are made to believe that purpose of life is to work and accumulate material possessions, monetary wealth.
Everything around us from marketing, media, entertainment, celebrity influence, and peer pressure drives us towards this. At the same time, we are also made afraid of losing whatever we hoarded (although half of it is not ours as we bought it on debt) so on top of our increasing debt we also have to pay different insurances to “secure” what we have.
We are manipulated, exploited from multiple sides while we exhaust ourselves for things we do not truly need, most of the time are harmful and we cannot afford.
So it is not a surprise that in general, we are tired, frustrated, depressed, and feel empty despite having much more than we actually need.
No problem! There are solutions to that: the incessant, brainless “circus and bread entertainment”, the almost freely offered and openly promoted mind-numbing, addictive substances to “soothe” us and take our mind away from the completely pointless, inhumane life we live.
Now the pandemic pushed us all into a forced rehab we protest against as we want our usual toys, drugs, updates, must-see TV-shows, and sports events…
But the pandemic is actually the cure! Regardless of what we keep trying stubbornly, regardless of the trillion-dollar “rescue/recovery” packages, the “Matrix” we have been living in collapses. We will get a clean slate to rebuild our lives and establish true, Humane goals, purposes for it.
Of course, we will need to cater to our basic, modern, healthy, and natural necessities all over the world. We will also need to make sure each person has something useful, mutually responsible, and mutually complementing they can do for society. The biggest problem with unemployment, being “made redundant” is not the money problem, but it is losing one’s Human role, important, useful, needed contribution to society. Feeling unneeded, unnecessary snuffs the life out of a person, making one a vegetable.
This is why the new Human society needs to be built upon “mutual guarantee”, on a unique arrangement where each person can find their unique, irreplaceable “cogwheel” role towards the whole collective while receiving exactly what they deserve, need to continue comfortably fulfilling their role according to their actual conditions, needs.
This will not create a homogenous, blend, grey society like Communism, instead, it will create a fair, just, peaceful, multi-colored, and very diverse Human mosaic which will be teeming with life, dynamism, healthy competition, and thriving for more, but always within the optimal parameters of natural necessities and available resources, making all the calculations primarily for the sake of the whole collective.
This is not a utopia. This is not another Human system using some political ideology, philosophy, or religion. This is a true, realistic, working Human system that is built on nature’s integral template with the help of a special, purposeful, and highly practical educational method that is built upon Nature’s laws.
