We can change future history — by changing ourselves

Question from the Internet:

“How could the rise and fall of civilizations be avoided in a humane and acceptable way? Is it better to let civilization collapse with a great loss of life, knowledge, and history, or is it better to exert more control over the people to avoid it?”

The rise and fall of civilizations — history’s helplessly recurring vicious cycles — is the result of the blindly instinctive development we have been following until now.

Our inherently selfish, egotistic, and exploitative nature builds a self-serving, narcissistic system, empire which then reaches a peak and after that starts consuming itself. Then the actual empire, civilization self-destructs with an explosion — and no control, oppression, coercion can avoid it — and we start building again on the ruin of the previous one.

Now our own civilization is collapsing, consuming itself — the US showing the sharpest, most obvious example as the hallmark of this civilization — as the greed, manipulation, oppression of others, social inequality, excessive exploitation of others, and Nature became uncontrollable.

There is only one way we can avoid a devastating global meltdown waiting around the corner, and avoid future recurrence: we have to change, upgrade ourselves, nature/program that drives us!

We have to change from the blind, instinctive, individualistic, and egotistic path to a conscious, selfless, altruistic, and collective development. And we have to achieve such unprecedented, fundamental self-changes, self-upgrade without any coercion, oppressions, misleading propaganda, by attracting people through their free choice with positive motivation.

This is possible only through a very special, purposeful and practical educational method, that can help us understand that it is not political ideology, agenda, dogma, or religion that obligates us for the change. We need to know and feel that it is Nature’s laws and evolution’s relentless push towards the integration of the Natural system that obligates us to adapt and align ourselves with Nature.
