When will there be peace?!
Question from the Internet:
“How can we, as humans, make the world a peaceful and a better place?”
In order to make the world a peaceful, better place we have to win the war inside ourselves.
Everything we see around us, all the historical and contemporary problems humanity suffers from are the result of the inherently selfish, egoistic, exploitative nature we are all born with.
We are driven to ruthless competition, mutual exploitation, manipulation of each other, we actually enjoy the suffering of others and when we can succeed at their expense.
And while many honestly believe they are different, in truth — knowingly, unknowingly — we are all driven by the same nature, only to a different extent.
We have multiple trials, experiments proving that in the “right conditions” we can all become brutal concentration camp guards, enjoying torturing others, even when there are no pressing, natural necessities forcing us to behave that way.
This is why our present direction of finding the “rotten apples” in society, singling out certain people, nations, cultures that need to be sanctioned, corrected, destroyed, and then the world will be beautiful is a lie. This is why with everything we do, we simply make things ever worse all the time.
Peace, a better world will come when all people — starting with a unique, more sensitive and willing critical minority — humbly recognize, accept the destructive, “warmongering” nature inside us, and agree to start changing, correcting, upgrading themselves — instead of correcting, changing, canceling, destroying others.
Since we are in the 11th hour towards the 3rd World War, while we are also desperately helpless in understanding let alone solving the multiple, mounting global problems we are facing, we are running out of time in recognizing and solving the root cause of all our problems: changing only ourselves, overcoming and controlling our instinctive nature.
