We are destroying the world with our inherent nature

Question from the Internet:

“Is capitalism destroying the world?”

At the moment it is mainly capitalism that is destroying the world, but we have been destroying the world with all our “isms", ideologies, philosophies and religions, as they are all based on, created by our inherently self-serving, self-justifying, exploitative and all-consuming egos.

Even if something sounds good and right and starts promising, we can be certain that our egos will sooner or later distort and corrupt it, and regardless of the ideology, governing, social or economic system we keep repeating history’s recurring vicious cycles.

Thus the solution is not in changing leaders, parties, systems or ideologies, but the solution is in changing ourselves, correcting, upgrading the “inner software" that drives us!
