We do not need kings or queens; we need the mutual integration of equals!

Question from the Internet:

“If you got to be King or Queen of the world for one day, what changes would you make?”

The first step would be abolishing the kingdom. We do not need kings or queens, and we do not need individual leadership. Not even for the usual circus and entertainment.

As we already know and feel, we have evolved into a globally integrated and fully interdependent world within the fully integrated and interdependent Natural system.

Any form of individualism, anything that is decided or implemented through our inherently egocentric, subjective, self-serving, and self-justifying nature, is harmful and destructive. Nobody is “greater” or “more deserving” than any other.

In Nature’s integral systems, all elements — from the smallest to the vastest — are equally important since the system cannot function without any of them.

This is what we need to learn, understand and feel until we become like individual cells of the same living organism.

Thus after abolishing the kingdom, I would introduce a unique, purposeful, and practical educational system that can help us achieve this single, living organism. Actually, we can do this even without “being a Queen or King for a day.” We are already doing it.
