We need to snap out of our blind “historic swinging" from one extreme to the other

Question from the Internet:

“Does communism really have to come back around for us to refresh our memories and to realize, once again, that it never works?”

You are right on one hand.

If we continue our blind swing from one extreme to the other as we did through history so far, as Capitalism reached its self-destructive end — due to extreme inequality, societal breakdown, excessive overconsumption and “productivity, efficiency" leading to increasing unemployment — more and more people will try to revive communism, despite knowing where we ended up each time trying it.

On the other hand Nature’s fully integrated, interdependent system gives and nurtures life according to “Communistic" principles.

If the cells of our bodies worked like raw capitalists, only caring about their own survival, profit, achieved at the expense of others, we wouldn’t be able to live even for a minute. Only when our cells, organs selflessly, unconditionally serve each other for the well-being of the whole can we have healthy life and survival.

And since we are born from Nature, live in Nature as one of its species, and we have to evolve with Nature, we are obligated to follow the same laws everything else in Nature’s system follows.

But we can not do this like Communists tried.

First we need to go through a unique educational program that can teach us how to harness, control and use our inherently “raw capitalist", selfish, egotistic and exploitative nature for the benefit of the whole, wi

thout suppressing, erasing anything coercively.
So all we need is a unique “Integral Education" for this purpose, so finally we can snap out of the helplessly recurring, blind, vicious history’s cycles and start a new, conscious, “natural” human development.
