Even though there is a joint statement between five of the world’s most powerful nations — the United States, Russia, China, the United Kingdom and France — that “a nuclear war cannot be won and must never be fought,” we still see that these same nations continue spending trillions of dollars on the arms race. Such statements simply give the people what they want to hear so that those in power can continue their rule.
While we live with self-interest at our core, where we each prioritize self-benefit over the benefit of others, then we position ourselves on a rickety foundation to prevent any kind of future war.
In order to truly prevent a nuclear war, we need to correct our egoistic nature so that we will prioritize the benefit of others and nature over self-benefit, and we need this correction to play out among everybody: from the broadest masses to the ruling elite.
Correcting our egoistic nature and discovering a sturdy foundation for human relations that would safeguard us from future wars requires a new universal education—one that focuses on our need to unite above division.
We need to learn about our egoistic nature: how is it opposed to the general altruistic laws of nature? What are the driving forces behind human development? Where are we headed? And how can we align ourselves with nature’s altruistic laws in order to experience harmony, peace and balance in our lives?
The more we immerse ourselves with this new form of universal education and start correcting our egoistic nature, the more we will protect ourselves from future wars.
