The secret of “collective power”

Question from the Internet:

“Is it possible for individuals to collectively challenge corporate power?”

Whether it is corporate power or anything else, only collectively do people have a choice to challenge and overcome anything.

We exist in a fully and mutually integrated Natural system where everything — from life to optimal development — depends on positive, constructive, mutually responsible and mutually complementing cooperation.

When we idolize individual abilities and power, we do not understand how little and ineffective it is. Only in our misguided and collapsing “modern society” does it make sense to worship the individual “idols”, “legends”, “icons”, heroes and villains. In actual reality, their power and success fizzle out almost immediately.

In the real, Natural reality, power and success are possible only collectively together, and this is what we all have to learn and implement now.

But collective action in itself is not enough.

We have myriads of examples of collective actions in history and contemporary society when teamwork, unity and solidarity are based on the hatred of others when people unite against a common enemy. And while such collective action can also be successful in the short term, in the end, it will start to consume all since the basis of this action is hatred and success at the expense of others.

This is how Nazism or Communism worked; for example, this is how team sports and commandos unite and succeed.

If we want to be successful in our collective actions, we need to follow Nature’s “intention” of creating and sustaining life for the whole system with our unity and cooperation. And then we will see that we acquire infinite and undefeatable power since it will be Nature’s life-creating and life-sustainable power that will ‘flow through” our mutual connections.

Thus we can’t initiate cooperation and collective action against anyone; it will not work. But if we initiate unity and collective action for the sake of everybody, based on how Nature determines this, instead of using our inherently egocentric, subjective and exploitative calculations, then we will all succeed, even those who initially seem to be against such actions.
