What’s wrong with our civilization?!
Question from the Internet:
“Are we about to face a lot of civilization changing political problems? It seems like the world is heading towards some troublesome times.”
We are already in troublesome times, except we refuse to see it and we still hope — like children — that everything is going to be ok in the end.
It can be good in the end, but not by itself.
What we see in the world through societal changes, political problems, wars and economic crises is just a movie we haplessly play are inevitable part in. And it is not only us who play this part we cannot change, but all the so-called leaders, experts, politicians and powerful interest groups who seemingly control the situation are also blindly playing out their part without any free choice and without any actual success.
Nothing will change and everything will only worsen until we start living the same scenes we see in gruesome, dystopian Hollywood or Netflix movies as long as we continue blindly following our instinctive nature.
Inherently we are all 100% self-serving, self-justifying, individualistic and exploitative. Knowingly or unknowingly we all thrive towards ruthless and exclusive competition, surviving and succeeding at the expense of others and Nature. In today’s globally integrated and fully interdependent world we all exist and behave like cancer.
There is no political, economic, social or military solution to this plight. Only when we recognized and humbly accepted that the root cause of all our historic and contemporary problems is within us, that it originate from our inherent nature and we become willing to change and further develop ourselves, only then can we escape from the seemingly inevitable self-destruction and start a different development.
Only when we purposefully, consciously and willingly learn how to adapt human society to Nature’s finely balanced and mutually integrated system do we have a chance and the right to survive Natural evolution.
