What is the single most important problem we need to solve?!

Question from the Internet:

“If you could end any one problem in the world, what would it be? Why?”

Fortunately, we have only a single problem we have to remedy, and since it is the root cause of all other problems, with a single stroke we can solve all other problems.

The single root cause for all the problems that plague us — both individually and collective — the single root cause that is now threatening our human survival, is our total inability to connect to each other, to create, positive, constructive, sustainable, mutually responsible and mutually complementing interconnections, cooperation.

Previously this was difficult to see and accept, but especially through the desperate helplessness humanity is showing in the pandemic, the total failure of how people are “discussing”, “trying to solve” the pressing climate issues and other global problems made this root cause very sharp and impossible to ignore, dismiss.

This problem and its true solution go way beyond all our arbitrary ideologies, philosophies, religions, and “spiritual methods” — that are all based on our inherently self-justifying, egocentric, individualistic nature.

We simply will not survive ‘evolution” if we can’t learn how to consciously, proactively build Nature-like mutual integration between us, in order to achieve compatibility, similarity with Nature’s finely balanced fully integrated, and interdependent system.
