Real Individuality

An individual within a natural environment may feel that they are functioning as an individual within the environment, but he or she is always limited by what the natural world can provide. What makes us human is our ability to transcend the natural environment by creating a social environment to replace it.

Within this social environment our human existence is formed and maintained by the images and objects we create to define our social existence.  Since our real individuality is dependent on the social environments that allow them to develop, maintaining the health of our social environments is paramount to our maintaining and developing our individuality.

Real individuality is only possible within a social environment because only a social environment provides a person with the social opportunities that allow him or her to develop their personal capabilities to the fullest. Therefore, those people that see their individuality as being separate from the greater society actually function as cancers that strip the vitality from society, which results in affecting its overall heath.

When The Need For Change Becomes Self-Evident

There are times in human history when the need for change becomes so self-evident that change is not only assured but is only a matter of time. This is such a time! Today we need a totally different type of government system if we are to achieve the global institutions that we will need to meet our problems. With the global problems that we are facing we need to have available to us different global ways of resolving our problems.

Meeting our global problems would require different types of global institutions to exist at the same time and this would be achieved through a system of civil and political entrustments. Civil and political entrustments would be contractual governments that would entrust us together. This contractual form of entrusted government would provide us with a way of quickly establishing the types of governments that are desired by the public when and where they were needed.

Our Global Problems Require Global Solutions

The problems that we are currently experiencing are global in nature, which require a global infrastructure to meet global solutions. We can no longer live in a finite world within political systems based on universal competition. We need to learn to live globally in a sustainable way in which we can grow in a responsible way within the limits provided to us by the natural environment that we all depend on. Global solutions require global institutions designed to deal with them. What I will be presenting in my next series of blogs are ways of creating the global institutions necessary to meet the global problems that we are now facing and that we are going to be increasingly facing in the future.
