We have a non-viable, unsustainable societal system, leading us to non-viability as a thinking specie.
As corroborated by our failure to solve even one of our basic societal problems. And the fact it requires human action inconsistent with the laws of nature under which we evolved as a thinking specie.
Is this our destiny as a thinking specie? As individual thinking beings. With differing physiological profiles,differing hopes and dreams for life. Differing abilities to implement and realize these hopes and dreams. Further, this is a dynamic process, constantly changing throughout life, ending only at death. It is the essence of individual thinking life.
Yet we have created a system which says this is not allowed. That there will be unnatural (political) laws requiring us to do things, many of which may be irrational and immoral. And preventing us from doing other things, which may be rational and moral.
Studies at the "Yale Baby School" show that young children are basically altruistic. That they want to help others, but to not necessarily interfere in their lives. Yet we learn from parents and in school, from history, that it is acceptable to have control over the lives and property of others. That interference in the life of others, control of the lives and property of others, is "the way". That this is what the great "heroes" and "leaders" in life do.
It creates a world of nitpickers. Those who have an idea of how other should behave, and wish to impose this idea on all. To pass unnatural laws to this effect, to require behavior through the political police. To maintain order in society, to provide everyone with what they want and should have in life.
Yet the opposite occurs, as individual seek to implement their own hopes and dreams for life. And do unpredictable things, creating "disorder"' in society.
The end result is ever-more laws, requiring or preventing things. The end result must be that all human action will eventually be required or prohibited. No thinking required, not allowed.
