We have to learn how not to be a burden to society

Question from the Internet:

What does it mean to be a burden to society?

In order to answer this question we would need to examine how an ideal society looks like, what is the state when one is not a burden, but a positive asset to society.

An ideal Human society — which we haven't managed to build yet through history or today — is built on Nature's fully integrated, interdependent template.

This is a society which exists, behaves according to “mutual guarantee".

It is a system where each unique individual contributes to the society with their best, unique, irreplaceable abilities maximally, while they all receive exactly, justly everything that they need so they can comfortably, perfectly fulfill their precise “cogwheel role" for the whole — in our days global — collective.

Such a society is not built according to our misguided, already failed philosophies, ideologies, political, economic and social systems.

Such a society is built based on Nature's fundamental laws that sustain the balance and homeostasis life and optimal development depends on. And this we learn and practice through a unique, purposeful and highly practical educational method that was designed, established and refined from generation to generation for this purpose.

A “burden" to society is one who doesn't follow this method and remains as a “cancer cell" — excessively consuming, succeeding at the expense of others — how we all inherently behave.

Thus by default, blindly, instinctively following our inherent nature we are all burdens to society until we purposefully, methodically learn how to find, and fulfill our unique cogwheel role as optimally as possible.
