We all need to change if we want true changes

Opinion from the Internet about Human society:

“Human nature does not change (its been 100K yrs in the making) but if the context of peoples relationship with others changes then their attitude towards others change. Humans adjust behaviour, not their nature, to suit changed circumstances. The paradigm shift that is required will only come about when people realise that an ancient liberty (their ability to freely access their subsistence from the Earth) has been denied them without appropriate consideration being afforded to them by those who benefit from the loss of that ancient liberty. The passive/submissive majority whose general ignorance induces apathy facilitates the theft of the majority’s future prosperity (spent by today’s ambitious/aggressives), and the denial of everybody’s birthright. Historically, the selfish actions of the wealthy, privileged, ambitious and aggressive have always been a most effective recruiting sergeant for increasing the ranks of the disaffected whose tolerance of the intolerable is legendary.”

You are right, you expressed it correctly, very nicely. It is not actually our nature that changes, but his we use our nature, what kind of connections we build with each other, with what attitude, intentions we relate to each other.

Here I have to remain “stubborn” though, by default we all relate to each other in an inherently egocentric, self-serving, self-justifying way.

The reason why always a small minority oppressed, exploits the majority is that this egotistic, selfish drive congress in different intensity, hunger in each of us, rendering Humanity along a pyramid model, with the most selfish, egotistic on top, controlling, ruling over the rest.

This is why during history each time the majority prevailed through revolutions, very soon whoever got to power, control reestablished the pyramid regardless of who they were before, what they did, what they said.

Without all of us going through a self-transformation nothing will change, we will continue our helplessly recurring vicious historic cycles.
