Question from the Internet:
“What can be some research topics in transformative community development?”
The most important research topic on the way to transforming society is researching our own inherent nature.
It is our nature, our inner program that defines the mutual connection between people and all the values, goals, aspirations, ideologies, philosophies, political and economic systems of any society.
Without understand why we do, covet, follow what we do, we keep stumbling in the dark, we keep helplessly falling from one vicious historic cycle to another, and why we are seemingly inevitable sleepwalk towards a global meltdown right now.
Only by fully understanding our inherently self-serving, self-justifying, subjective, and individualistic nature — that drives us towards ruthless competition, success at each other’s expense, excessive overconsumption — can we figure out, learn how to start behaving, interconnecting above and against our nature and truly transform society for the better.
