Question from the Internet:
“What does the reaction and behavior of citizens of Western countries during covid-19 say about the price of freedom?”
The tragically self-defeating, individualistic, nationalistic reactions during the pandemic we see mostly from Western countries shows how much we are not free.
We can see very clearly how we are all slaves to our inherently self-serving, self-justifying, subjective and individualistic nature, that only cares about itself and succeeds, survives at the expense of everything, everybody else outside of the self.
This blind self-worship is how driving us towards extinction in a fully integrated, interdependent world — as all non-Western countries also covet the same Western lifestyle driven by the same, though less developed ego, as even when our health, life depends on it we simply can’t rise above the inherent ego to make calculations for the sake of others, for the whole collective.
Our only true freedom — which we have the ability to reach through a unique, purposeful and practical educational method — is to liberate ourselves from the ruthless control of the ego, to make decisions, to act above, against the ego.
