The most important problem and its solution

Question from the Internet:

“What solution to a specific problem do you have that everyone should know about?”

There is a specific problem we could call the “mother of all problems”. And this is our innate inability to build and sustain positive, constructive, mutually responsible, and mutually complementing interconnections and cooperation.

And while in previous generations, at least within our families and close circles — or even in tribes and small villages — we could generate some unity and mutual solidarity, in our generation, even the classical family is falling apart.

This is because we are all born with an inherently self-serving, self-justifying, subjective and individualistic ego, which has been growing and intensifying throughout human history, reaching its peak in our times.

Thus now, especially since we also evolved into a globally integrated and fully interdependent humanity at the same time, we behave and exist like cancer with respect to human connections and in respect to our relationship to Nature.

This specific problem is the root cause of all other problems we are facing or faced before.

Thus the solution to this specific problem— and gaining the ability to build the above-mentioned positive, constructive, mutually responsible and mutually complementing cooperation above and against our instinctive nature would solve all other problems and prevent new ones.

So everybody should know about this specific problem and its solution.
