We can’t go back, we have to move forward!

Question from the Internet:

“Is it better to go back to the tribal and feudalistic forms of society where the sense of community is stronger?”

While I fully agree with you, that we need community feeling, mutual responsibility, solidarity in order to survive in a fully integrated, interdependent world — which Natural evolution forces on us — we can’t go backwards.

Human history is the chronicle of the ever growing intensifying Human ego, and as we also know from experience the ego can’t be suppressed, erased.

Instead we need to learn how to acquire that sense of community, Humanity behaving as a single “super-organism” above, despite everything that separates, rejects us from each other.

Then the ever growing ego will give us the power, the fuel, while we learn — through a unique, purposeful and highly practical education — how to channel, harness this power towards positive, constructive, collective goals, purposes.
