World leaders in wrestling match…
Question from the Internet:
“Should we have a global referendum that if world leaders wish to fight, they have to go into a padded room and have a pillow fight, broadcast to the world, and whoever wins gets sent to Antarctica with a solar panel and a fishing rod and no GPS?”
I really like your idea, and I can already imagine those — mostly above 70 — gentlemen having a mud fight, or a WWE style match, and then they are all sent away to Antarctica or somewhere else.
The problem is that they are not alone. If we send the present ones, new, probably even worse ones will take their place. And when we keep replacing them we will come to a horrific recognition: It does not matter who gets to the top, in their place we would all behave the same!
As the infamous “Stanford prison experiment” showed there is a “concentration camp guard” in all of us given the “right” conditions.
As much as would like to believe otherwise, we are all born with an inherently egocentric, individualistic, and exploitative nature and we all enjoy — knowingly, unknowingly — to succeed at the expense of others.
So if we truly want to change the world — instead of simply having fun at the expense of others while we remain the same and keep ruining everything around us — we all need to change ourselves.
Then the changed Human being can build a changed Human society and develop new leaders who will become truly public servants, only serving the benefit of their people while securing a sustainable and peaceful global integration.
And while this might look like a utopia, first of all, if we want to survive we have no other choice but to try, moreover, we actually have the right, purposeful and practical educational method that can help us implement the unique self-changes, self-upgrade.
