What is the ideal human society?

Question from the Internet:

“Can the world order system be called society?”

“Society” is how human beings arrange their mutual relationships to facilitate life, trade, economy, education, governance etc, so life unfolds in a reasonably organized manner.

A perfect society — which we have not managed to build yet — is one, that is also in synchrony, that is adapted to Nature’s mutually integrated, interdependent system, accepting and following Nature’s strict laws that govern the general balance and homeostasis that life depends on.

A perfect human society is against our inherently “cancer-like”, instinctively self-serving, self-justifying, egocentric and exploitative nature. Driven by this inherent nature we thrive on excessive overconsumption, accumulating resources and profit for ourselves while succeeding at the expense of others and Nature.

As a result, we went through history’s helplessly recurring vicious cycles while right now we are on the threshold of an unprecedented, unmitigated global meltdown — that can be initiated by multiple causes from multiple different locations.

Collective human survival — and there is no individual, local, national survival in a global, integral world when Nature views humanity as a single entity — depends on rebuilding human societies on the integral template of Nature.
