The fabric of human society

Question from the Internet:

“What is regarded as the fabric of human society?”

The “fabric of human society” is the mutual interconnections and interaction between people.

Society is the assembly of people, and everything that happens in society originates from the quantity and quality of interconnections and interactions between people.

Everything we develop or build in society, all the governing, political, economic and social structures and activities are rooted in those interconnections and interactions.

Thus, anything we want to change in society requires studying and changing the interconnections and interactions between people.

The problem is that we keep looking at the symptoms and try curing these symptoms instead of looking at and changing the root cause.

It is understandable.

We do not want to look and reveal that our interconnections and interactions are broken since we all approach each other through our inherently selfish, egocentric, individualistic and exploitative nature.

But we have nowhere to escape.

Unless we start changing, adjusting ourselves towards positive, mutually responsible, and mutually complementing integration — where each individual makes calculations and acts for the sake of the whole society above and against selfish and subjective calculations and self-benefit — we will continue to consume and destroy each other and the whole society like cancer.
