We simply can’t connect to each other!
Question from the Internet:
“What are the characteristics that signify community problems?”
The most important characteristic which signify community problems in our days is our completed inability to build familial, mutually responsible, mutually complementing connections, cortisone as we used to.
It is true that there are still indigenous communities who still live in tribes, extended families, and it is true that there are still developing countries where multiple generations live together in mutual support.
But the inherently self-centered, egotistic and individualistic Human development inevitably will reach them as well, as they all aspire to emulate the “success" of the “developed" Western countries. We can already see this in India, China and many other countries, regardless of how officially they try to handle it.
The irrepressible growth, intensification of the human ego can’t be suppressed, stopped, it is a program Nature’s evolution installed in us.
But Nature also have us a unique Human intellect, that is capable of critical self-assessment, initiating methodical, purposeful self-changes, self-upgrade. Now that we started to realize that our instinctive, self-serving, individualistic, exploitative way of life is totally self-destructive.
By using our unique intellect — with the help of a special, purposeful and highly practical educational, scientific method we can learn how to harness, channel the wall powerful ego towards positive, constructive, collective goals, purposes.
This is the great social revolution, transition we are going through in our times!
