We need to learn how to rise above what separates us to survive together!

Question from the Internet:

“What determines whats ethical in a society?”

It is defined by the actual values, dogma, propaganda which is “broadcasted” by those who control media, information flow, and what is “uploaded” into people through upbringing, education.

At this stage there are no absolute standards, each culture, religion, nation has their own set of values, dogmas people are controlled by.

In our global, integral time when people migrate in great numbers we can see how such dogmas, values clash, contribute to the already developing break in society due to the growing inequality even if the ethical codes were the same.

This process of fragmentation, clashes, animosity potential wars will continue as long as we blindly follow our inherently egocentric, self-serving, self-justifying, subjective nature.

Only when we learn how to purposefully, methodically rise above everything that separates us, rejects us from one another with the help of higher, more important common goals, purposes (like our threatened collective Human survival for starter) can we all adjust ourselves to different - Nature-like - values, principles without suppressing, erasing existing individual, national identities, traditions, customs.
