The most successful ideology for Human survival

Question from the Internet:

“What’s more important? Ideas or human beings?”

I think the most important are ideas that can be implemented in practice which ideas are about creating the best possible world, the best possible human society for human beings.

We are conscious beings acting based on certain ideas.

Most of our ideas are inherently self-serving, self-justifying, subjective and egocentric. Then most of our ideas are also philosophical and theoretical that we cannot implement in practice.

The helplessly recurring vicious historic cycles and our present problems in human society are the results of such egocentric, subjective, egocentric and philosophical ideas, ideologies and systems.

But we can purposefully develop ideas that can be successfully implemented in practice, which practically implemented ideas could turn this crisis-ridden, self-destructive world of ours into a “real-life Garden of Eden”.

For that to happen we need to align our ideas — using our unique human intellect that is capable of critical self-assessment and initiating self-development and self-change — with Nature’s all-encompassing “ideology” of selfless, mutually responsible and mutually complementing integration that is the basis for creating and sustaining life.

Human beings are the only element in Nature that can willingly, purposefully and proactively swap their instinctive ideas and ideology for something different we can borrow from Nature.
