Humanity’s physical impact on the World is now so great that we must exercise wisdom and responsibility. We must now consider the needs of all species and the environment, as well as ourselves, in all decisions.
Human beings, animals and plants are all inseparable parts of nature. We are IN nature – not outside or above it. All our species are connected to each other and the planet, and rely indirectly on each other for survival.
Equal consideration of everything and everyone that is here is certainly a key point and starting point for every decision we make in this world. This is taking Self Responsibility as Equal participants within the same ecosystem. The current physical impact on the world is a direct consequence of how we have created a system based on profit, a system where producing and consuming have become the ways to ‘make a living,’ which has lead us to create unnecessary products and ‘economical activities’ that are not required to LIVE, but only exist due to the current need that human beings have to ‘make money to live.’ If we can create a community that gives equal access to what it has, our current system of unnecessary and irresponsible production will stop, because there will be no way to ‘make money’ out of useless products.
Within this community, a great part of the current environmental impact will cease to exist, as all our focus and attention will be on ‘surviving’ or producing to be able to ‘make a living’ not on become ‘wealthy’ , for we will be unconditionally supported as Life.
Life is precious in all its forms, and free to flourish in the combined common good.
Life is an amazing phenomenon, and, so far, our planet is the only place we have found it. This makes it a most rare and beautiful thing that should be cherished and respected . However, life is also food, and all our world’s species form a complex food-chain. In order to maintain this food-chain – and thus our biodiversity and survival – we must observe the combined common good of all species when interacting with any one.
As we know, that common good has been compromised within our current monetary system wherein thousands of species are now extinct because of being used in any form of business and the now commonly known as ‘irresponsible economic activities’ which is linked to the disregard that we as human beings have had toward fellow living beings in the name of profit, power and having a ‘superior’ stance to be able to commit such crimes against life. Stopping profit from being a possibility in this community, we will be able to stop the current exploitation of animals, plants and all resources in the name of ‘progress.’
That ‘combined common good’ can only be acquired through/as education, considering what it means to be one and equal, to be coexisting with everything and everyone that is part of the community doing what’s Best for All. To establish such ‘common good’ we must regulate and implement an entire new system structure based on Equality, wherein education is specifically linked to developing beings to their upmost potential within the consideration of everyone having equal responsibility as well as equal access to the resources that community offers.
More to be said soon.
