We can’t heal ourselves without identifying the root cause of our “human disease"

Question from the Internet:

“Aside from money, is ignorance the root of all evil?”

The “root of the evil" in the world is the inherently selfish, egoistic, subjective and exploitative nature that drives all of us. Everything else is only the consequence coming from that cause.

All though history we are evaluating, trying to solve the symptoms, the consequences of the “root evil", this is why instead of getting better, humanity is becoming increasingly sick, as the cancer of the human ego keeps consuming everything including ourselves.

It is upon our unique generation — on the brink of a seemingly inevitable self-destruction, with overwhelming historical evidence, experience — to finally identify accept the root cause, and start applying the only possible remedy: changing, upgrading our inherent nature through the right, purposeful and practical education.

Is we start to do this and augment our selfish, egotistic program with Nature’s selfless, altruistic upgrade that enables us to build the necessary mutual connections, cooperation survival depends on, we will also understand that the ego is not “evil", but it is a unique power force we can learn to harness, channel, control towards positive, constructive, collective goals, purpose.
