Our way of living
Man and nature
Man part of nature
If we look at the way of life of for example ordinary ducks in some pond or ditch in a park, we can see how these animals are part of nature. They float and swim
in the water, eat organisms living in the water, excrete in the water, and drink the water; and for some 90% or so they consist of that water. And for the remaining 10% they consist of other matter from the pond. And in fact
we can say, that basically they are part of the pond . . .
Many modern humans of today however are living in huge cities in a self-made almost sterile environment of asphalt, brick, metal, concrete, glass and
plastics etc. and their sterilized food comes from a supermarket.
However since many millions of years humans are as much part of nature as these ducks and any other living being on the earth . . .
Right from the moment of our birth, specific
kinds of bacteria from the vagina of our mother are transferred to our mouth and move into our digestive system and settle down in our intestines.
In our intestines they start living in symbioses with us, and start becoming
a very important part of our immune-system. They communicate with our intestines, and produce biochemical substances of vital importance for us.
And without these bacteria and their ecology humans cannot survive in a normal natural
environment . . .
Here we can see our vulnerability, and that every human being is born as a part of nature, and not in any way separate or above nature.
Unknown human ecology Thesis
Many hundreds or even thousands of unknown
species of bacteria are living in our intestines with a yet unknown function, and are part of a yet unknown ecosystem in our intestines.
However apparently harmless GM fruits or GM veggies can via "horizontal" genetic
influence in nature carry unknown yeasts, moulds or bacteria and have deleterious effects on the ecology and symbiosis of our intestines. And in that way they also can have an unknown dangerous and even fatal effect on our
human body or vital immune- system . . . As a warning could be seen the aquarium strain of Caulerpa taxifolia which is eco-invading now without predators in many marine ecosystems in the world.
Science and technique
In science and technique man seems to stand above nature; and out of that mis- conception we have become arrogant and misused our technical and scientific power. Hence the already immense damage, pollution and destruction of this earth.
Man has up till now claimed an almost unlimited freedom to grab, exploit and
destroy . . .
Chemistry and ignorance
From the time of invention of fire-making man has already started manipulating the chemistry of nature. Probably at first by roasting, frying and
cooking his own food.
Unknowingly creating his first cancer-causing chemicals.
But later also by melting ore of metals like lead etc.
In sediments of northern Euro- pean lakes, scientists have found layers of lead-particles originating in human activity in the Mediterranean of thousands of years ago.
However regarding our behaviour of today, that same human ignorance still seems to
be there today.
Agriculture chemistry and GM
For many decades already, there is a continuously ongoing global pollution and des- truction of the global ecosystem by agricultural chemistry
against plagues, bacteria, fungi, viruses, insects and weeds.
And there are patented GM-seeds to catch hold of the global market of agricultural seeds. Agricultural GM and its unknown genetic effects on the ecosystem,
(also in the so called horizontal way) comes forth from a combination of scientific arrogance and narcissism, and blind egocentric and uninhibited greed for money.
Man above nature
And still with all of our knowledge of today we continue the misuse,
pollution and des- truction of this immensely beautiful and fragile earth. And blind egocentrism and unin- hibited greed for money can be seen as the basic causes of it.
We can think of deforestation, mining, overfishing,
nuclear pollution, chemical pollution by agriculture, unknown effects of agricultural GM, nano-tech pollution etc. etc.
Basically man lives in the delusion to be above nature instead of being aware of being part of
Chemical pollution and human health
Environmental pollution with chemistry seems to be one of the causes of cancer and other diseases in humans. And many decades ago already there was scientific proof of
hundreds of cancer-causing chemical substances found in the environment.
Accumulative pollution with poisonous particles in the air from exhaust-pipes, and agri- cultural pesticides in our food, like dieldrin,
heptachlor, atrazine, chlordane, 2,4,5-TP, plastic particles in the global surface-water, mercury in seafood, asbestos in building materials, radon gas from walls in our houses, etc etc.
And also accumulative endocrine-disrupting compounds are found in our food, like
DDT, PCB's, atrazine, 2,4-Dichlorophenoxyacetic acid, BPA, chlorodane, endosulfan, dieldrin, malathion, methyl bromide etc. etc.
since the discovery of it, cognitive dissonance and wishful thinking have taken over; lets not exaggerate its importance, it won't be that bad . . .
Laboratory rats . . . Thesis
Out of the delusion to be apart and above nature many people in chemistry, technique science and finance live in an egocentric and egoistic culture of blind arrogance, mega- lomania, greed and respectlessness.
continuously busy in polluting, poisoning and destroying this immensely valuable, fragile, mysterious and beautiful earth in more and more different ways.
And out of that uninhibited greed, stupidity and arrogance all
people in the world are in the end continuously being used as laboratory rats . . .
Understanding and respect
Humanity with her almost unlimited power over nature is in a tremendous need for understanding of her place in nature, and understanding of her own
Only this understanding can create the awareness and respect needed to survive on this earth.
However up till now out of unorganized chaos, sheer stupidity, ignorance, arrogance, greed and narcissism there
seems to be almost no respect for nature, which all living beings as well as we ourselves are part of.
Villains and idiots
Our children and grandchildren may call their parents and grandparents and the generations of the last century in general the worst villains, criminals,
and idiots of human history . . .
Villains or criminals, because of the conscious and careless pollution, rape and irreversible destruction of their heritage.
Their heritage of many millions of years of
evolution; an immensely precious, beautiful and fragile earth, evolutionary fine-tuned on their physical human body and nature . . .
And idiots, because of the apathetic, fatalistic attitude of cynicism and carelessness of
those who saw and understood . . .
Innocent idiots they can only call those who were ignorant . . .
Global education Thesis
Before the uprising of our children and grandchildren will happen, a
universal global education of human basics can bring about a change towards realism, awareness and respect for nature and change the suicidal course of humanity.
Because only a global change in realism, awareness and true
respect for nature can save humanity from a final self-extinction.
And a global unity in understanding of our common interest can bring about a global agreement and creative cooperation in all of the measurements to
Man and power
Power respect and responsibility-awareness
Individual power creates by nature also responsibility for the consequences of the use of that power. This responsibility is not only an outer
responsibility but also an existen- tial responsibility; totally independent of whether we are held responsible or not.
Hence a power-position asks for responsibility-awareness and a conscious respect for other
humans, and for our precious and vulnerable earth and nature.
A sound moral awareness is needed for responsible, just and honest power-decisions. In the very small societies of the ancient past the outcome of all
power decisions were directly visible; however in modern big societies there may be people effected by our decisions we don't know about. (just think of democratic voting-power)
Power egocentrism and arrogance
Power in hands of unconscious and egocentric people can easily go wrong because
of a lack of empathy and respectlessness. A power-position can easily make people complacent and more egocentric, for power creates the
delusion of self-importance, which creates more egocentrism, and next then arrogance and narcissism. And the consequence will be then a lack of empathy and unconscious respectlessness.
(we can also think of the expression: "the arrogance of power")
Power and megalomania
In a power-position blind egocentrism and being surrounded by bootlickers can easily lead to complacency narcissism and megalomania, which has often happened to
high (and even low) ranking politicians.
This megalomania creates a distance to all others and an unrealistic way of thinking; and next respectlessness, misuse of power, kicking down and Machiavellianism.
Power and self-esteem
Enjoying the use of
power basically means a lack of self-esteem, and often it also means a false self-esteem, not based on any positive creativity; and it often means narcissism or even some level of psychopathy.
Anybody, and especially
narcissists can only get true self-esteem out of positive creativity. And anybody enjoying the use of power can ask him- or herself for the reason of joy. Enjoying to be higher than others basically means narcissism,
which also contains the danger of the negative aspects of narcissism, and the danger of Machiavellianism . . .
Bosses leaders and politics Thesis
As mentioned, bosses are basically egocentric, respectless and repressive, and have as such basically the
hostile attitude of an enemy.
Bosses are authoritarian and easily become narcissistic and often they even show a more or less psychopathic mentality.
Leaders however are basically empathic and respectful and
aware of their responsi- bility and have the mentality of a guide and of a friend. They always use their power in a respectful way. And true leaders can be trusted; but about bosses we don't know.
political leaders show a mentality of authoritarian political bosses, which is in fact a dictator mentality . . .
However true political leaders are basically modest and sincere servants of their society, and not
opportunistic and narcissistic career hunters . . .
Governors administrators and managers
This what has been said about political leaders counts also for all governors, admini- strators and managers of companies, institutions, local governments and
organiza- tions etc.; they should basically be leaders and not bosses or dictators.
The main quality of a governor is that of a guide; and for guidance is in the first place needed knowledge and understanding, and
next the leadership as described.
And especially for local government officials and responsible officials in general the mentioned quality of leadership is of basic importance.
Power, and freedom and well-being of others
Any words, decisions or
behaviour out of a position of power ask for an understanding of the full implications of these words, decisions or behaviour.
And it especially asks for responsibility awareness of all implications regarding the freedom
of others, as well as regarding the well-being of others . . .
And next also responsibility awareness for the quality and sense of freedom and well- being of the society as a whole, or of any minorities in the
society . . .
Intelligence, justice, understanding, responsibility awareness, integrity, empathy and true respect are of basic importance for every human, but especially for somebody in a position of power . . .
Misuse of power as a crime Thesis
All mistakes made
out of a position of power which harm people or nature can be called a misuse of power if there are no valid excuses.
And if egocentrism, arrogance, respectlessness and lack of empathy are the cause of it, misuse of power
should basically be seen as a crime.
A criminal misuse of power could also be called the polluting and destroying of nature just out of greed for money; and often even when it happens within the law . . .
This, because a crime against nature is basically a crime against future humanity . . .
For let's not forget, nature which we are all part of.
And also, basically all human criminality can be seen as a misuse of power . . .
Personal power-position and moral awareness
As mentioned already, anybody in a personal
power position should be aware of his or her moral responsibility for the consequences of his or her decisions and acts.
But also important is the awareness, that egocentrism, megalomania, desire for power
respectlessness, and lack of empathy belong to the basic qualities of psychopaths and ASPD - people . . . And also contempt, ruthlessness and lack of conscience belong to them . . .
Basic is a morally
positive identity and natural respect for others, as well as respect for nature and respect for our society and also for the global society. And the higher our responsibility, the higher also our level of basic intelligence
We can think of all kinds of power positions; like in politics, and in banks, media, edu- cation, police, science, technique, medical professions, agriculture and food produc- tion, or even the
power of the wife of a powerful husband, etc. etc.
Religious and educational power
Important is also to see the power position of all religious leaders and teachers in the world, and their responsibility for the consequences of their teachings.
And it may be clear that the basic intelligence and narcissistic and psychopathic levels of all religious teachers in the world have a strong influence on the interpretation and level of extremism in their religions. And
collective narcissistic and chauvinistic religious extremism can be found at the basis of many political conflicts, war, and terror in the world . . . . .
However, also non-religious educational power in the hands of
narcissistic, or more or less psychopathic people lacking basic intelligence, has a destructive effect on our human morality and way of living. (think of producers of films, games and media etc.)
Scientific power and narcissism in science
All scientists working in fields
like chemistry, nanotechnology, molecular biology and genetic manipulation, synthetic biology, xenobiology and robot, computer and software design and nuclear technology etc. carry a basic and huge responsibility.
Modern experimental science is engaged in experiments in uncharted fields and with basically unpredictable consequences for nature and humanity. And in the last century it has already created tremendous harm when
taking risks in unknown fields and taken risks on the lives of many other humans and even the whole of humanity.
We can think of use of chemistry and GM in agriculture, use of nuclear technology, and all kinds of
harmful medicines, etc.
Up till now science has mainly been based on blind narcissism, career and greed, and in that way it had no responsible direction, and hence it is bound to err and to continue to be harmful to nature
and humanity if there will be no basic change . . .
Basic conditions for entry in science Thesis
The most basic solution for this problem is to establish basic conditions and tests for entry in experimental science and technique.
Positive creativity, humane idealism and awareness of the basics of human nature and the most basic universal human values and virtues and a morally positive identity should be a basic condition for entry in any kind
of responsible science.
All applying students should be tested for their basic intelligence, psychopathic and narcissistic level, moral identity and responsibility-awareness, and awareness of the dangers of
their field of study and future work for ecology, humans, and humanity . . .
Political power and psychopathy Thesis
As high ranking politicians tend to identify themselves with their function they easily can fall into the delusion to be higher than
the normal people and to be allowed more than others out of self-importance megalomania and arrogance.
Megalomania, narcissism and arrogance create a lack of empathy and respect as could be seen in a historic figure
like Adolf Hitler, who at first only wanted to deport Jews from Germany, later used them in an economic sense, and next started syste- maticly callously and ruthlessly murdering them.
Power corrupts; for it can
easily create arrogance, narcissism and contempt, and lack of respect empathy and conscience, and it stimulates psychopathy and Machiavelli- anism. Semi-psychopaths and the most egocentric and power-hungry among us are most
sensitive for it.
Narcissism and distance of politicians
Power of governments and individual power of politicians can go against the basic interests and rights of individual citizens, if there is a
culture of collective narcissism among these politicians, which creates an artificial distance between them and the citizens. Narcissism can also lead then to a misuse of power and to suppression of freedom of speech, and to
manipulation of information etc.
Narcissism and distance between politicians and citizens can also easily create poverty, corruption, social unrest and misery in a society. This, because narcissism
of politicians in
general also means respectlessness towards protesting citizens who are experienced as a threat then, and often it ends up in inappropriate use of violence by police and judiciary, and in a decay of freedom, creativity and
prosperity . . .
And because all people with a (more or less) psychopathic or narcissistic mentality feel strongly attracted towards positions of power, all politicians and officials in the world should be tested for
their mental qualities.
Power and psychological tests Thesis
Basically every individual in the world in a position of power should be investigated on CV and professional level, and tested for
basic intelligence and moral understanding, and for a morally positive identity, integrity, empathy and human respect, and also for narcissism, psychopathy and Machiavellianism . . .
All people working in
before mentioned professions, companies and institutions etc. should be tested on their levels, and publicly reported.
And the higher the power- position, the higher the required levels should be, and the more the tests should be confirmed and controlled. All self-focussed egocentric narcissistic and psychopathic career hunters can be kept away then from all responsible functions of power.
And especially for politicians of all levels, religious teachers, and those with the monopoly of violence such tests are of fundamental importance. And anybody in a position of power with any integrity can only be in favour of such testing . . . . .
Reliability of tests
Because of the vague scientific basis of psychology in the past, and also out of the understanding that nobody is perfect and that everybody can make mistakes, to many people psychological tests (also regarding criminality)
may seem somewhat scary or threatening.
Hence it's important to know that the reliability of psychological tests can be tested as well; and that moreover these tests can also be combined with physical, genetic, brain-scan,
and polygraph tests. And these tests can also be designed in such way, that the scores cannot be faked, and also cheat-traps can be included.
In future these tests can more and more become refined, levelled, extended and
com- puterized, which more and more excludes eventual human errors.
And in the end the outcome of the tests could (with consent or request of the tested) also be compared with collected personal data.
Quality of testers Thesis
all designers of these tests and psychologists licensed to execute such tests should be tested and controlled by other psychologists beforehand.
And as mentioned, these tests could partly also be interactively
computer based, to standardize levels and prevent fraud.
This kind of testing could mean a big step in the direction of a less corrupt, more peaceful, prosperous, and happier world to live in . . .
Power and corruption
Corruption and wealth
Corruption is an immoral, respectless and society-hostile misuse of power, which creates a chain effect in all societies, and it tends to become part of a
culture if there is a lack of moral understanding and understanding of human nature.
Many people living in wealth tend to become arrogant and narcissistic. And in that way many people tend to become antisocial by
living in wealth.
And this narcissism and arrogance creates the power of money and of corruption; however on the other hand also the misuse of power by powerful officials.
Corruption, entrepreneurship and poverty
Corruption as well as bureaucracy has an inhibiting or preventing and hence disastrous effect on a starting and also developing small entrepreneurship.
And small entrepreneurship is in general seen as the very basis of an
economy. Hence corruption hampers an economy and it creates and keeps a society in poverty . . .
And inhibiting or preventing small entrepreneurship means also inhibiting or preventing innovative and positive
creative developments in an economy and society . . .
Corruption, power and repression Thesis
Corruption creates a divided, and basically disrupted society; and the principle of cor- ruption means basically a criminal misuse of power
with three society dividing effects. Firstly it increases the power of those with money, and secondly it creates more power for people in official power positions, as it tends to become a habit, and thirdly
it means a respectless repression of the poor who have no money for a bribe . . .
And from this perspective corruption can be seen as one of the biggest problems of humanity today . . . . . And as
explained, it can only be solved by education to a basic moral understanding, a social and morally positive identity, and a basic insight in our human nature.
Social networks, power and corruption
Also social networks
between people in power can easily lead to a misuse of power and to corruption if there is a lack of moral identity, basic moral virtues and moral understanding.
And if it is about a social network between more or
less narcissistic people it can easily become a society-hostile or even criminal organization . . . This kind of corrup- tion or nepotism can often be seen as a collective egocentric or collective narcissistic conspiracy
and has some similarity to cartel formation.
Often it may be difficult to see where an act of friendship ends and corruption begins.
Basically only integrity, a morally positive identity and an existential
responsibility- awareness can help here.
Cartel-formation, an organized crime Thesis
Cartel-formation is a type of organized crime against a society; for it basically means a conspiracy and
a collective misuse of power against that society, and in the end it is a way of stealing money from people in that society. This, because if there would not be the cartel, people would pay lower prices for their products. And
basically cartel-forma- tion is a negative creative way of making money, or parasitism . . .
Abuse of authority
Abuse of authority is basically a misuse of power which should at least in a moral sense be seen as a criminal behaviour, and it often shows disregard for the
law, and it shows arrogance, narcissism and Machiavellianism (might makes right).
Basically it means the commission of an immoral illegal or harmful act, and done in an official capacity like in police, prisons,
military etc. However also in medical, therapeu- tical and educational professions, and in corporate positions etc. abuse of authority often happens.
Abuse of authority has basically to be seen as a kind of corruption, for
it basically sets a standard for might makes right, and it shows a corrupted mentality . . .
Corruption in applied science and technique
As mentioned, science implies a certain power position of scientists, and especially
in applied science in commercial companies; and the same counts
for technicians. And we all know that "knowledge means power", but this could also be translated as "knowledge makes money". . .
And we also know that power as well as money cor- rupts in a narcissistic individual survival society . . .
Narcissism and blind greed can be seen as the cause of technological and scientific corruption in the sense
of taking risks on the lives or safety of other people, or popu- lation or nature. It's narcissism, human arrogance and unlimited greed that creates irresponsible decisions in commercial companies.
And the question can be
asked if experimental nanotechnology, genetic manipulation, synthetic biology, xenobiology, and robot, computer, dangerous software design and nuclear technology etc. should be in the hands of commercial companies . . . . .
Corruption of judicature
the worst forms of corruption can also be seen in corruption of the judicature; corruption in the sense of politics, (no division of powers), negative discrimination, class-society, and corruption in the sense of personal
interests and bribes.
One of the worst forms of corruption, because a judicature should basically be seen
as a guiding basis of justice and morality in a society . . .
The moral standard of justice is a
standard of right and wrong, so of general morality, and it is the standard for a rule of law. Hence a corrupt judicature basically means: no rule of law, but rule of corruption, or rule of law of the jungle.
corrupt judicature basically means a threat and a lack of individual safety and peace in a society, and a lack of justice and sense of freedom . . .
And without a reliable judicature a society tends to become wild,
chaotic, and un- governable, and asks for an oppressive, totalitarian or police state government . . .
Corruption basically means criminality, this, what a judicature is supposed to fight . . .
often megalomania, Machiavellianism, narcissism, or egocentrism and a lack of moral understanding that causes the habit.
Corruption of media
Journalists, editors and editorial staffs of newspapers, radio and
TV programmes etc. basically carry also a certain power and hence also responsibility.
In general their information is trusted by all readers and audience; trusted, and sup- posed and assumed to be true. Hence
basically their information should be as much as possible complete, independent, unbiassed and uncoloured.
However, in the end really independent and neutral media don't exist; and out of this excuse many journalists
and editors have become corrupt, and basically have become nothing but manipulators of their readers and audience . . .
However in a moral sense this kind of goal-oriented manipulation should basically be seen as a
moral crime against their society . . . . .
Culture of general corruption
Basically a culture of general corruption creates and maintains an individual survival- mentality in any society where it is practised.
basically means a society-hostile mentality and it is antisocial, and basi- cally suppressive and criminal, and it creates and supports a class society . . .
The first step to finish with such corruption is to
officially change that culture by means of legislation and all means of education and to pay enough salary to make a living to police and all government officials.
Against corruption and misuse of power Thesis
No punishment can help against
corruption cartel-formation and nepotism, for corrupt people will always be able to find new ways which cannot be proved.
The only universal answer of a society against corruption, cartel-formation and misuse of
power is a basic moral education and a basic education about human nature.
A moral education and conditioning to a morally positive identity, and so to the basic moral qualities of integrity, reliability,
responsibility-awareness and humane idealism; and this in combination with an education to an understanding of how to attain to a sense of one's own dignity and a morally positive self-esteem . . . . .
those caught on corruption, re-education and re-socialization can be the only solution.
Secret anti-corruption police
In countries or societies with a high corruption level and where one wants to change from a culture of corruption and nepotism to a non-corrupt society,
an additional and maybe very important means of change could also be a morally specialized indepen- dent and secret anti-corruption police, governed by an independent judicature.
And this independent anti-corruption police
should have access to all information of all secret intelligence agencies in the country.
For such police is of course needed a high education in morality and moral under- standing and a very solid moral identity.
After re-education and proved re-socialization caught corrupt people could be given a new chance, however still controlled by that secret anti-corruption police.
Change of mentality
Anybody with a corrupt mentality has basically the potential to turn
the switch from a corrupt and parasitical mentality to a positive creative and humane idealistic mentality, where corrupt parasitical means lack of self-esteem, and positive creative and humane idealistic means supportive and
creative towards one's society and it also means true self value and sense of dignity and to give a real meaning to one's life, and to the life of one's children . . .
Secret intelligence services
Intelligence services and basic intelligence Thesis
Anybody in the world working in a national intelligence service should basically possess at least the basic intelligence as
And any intelligence service without this basic intelligence can actually not claim intel- ligence at all, for if a basic understanding of our human nature and basic human values and virtues is missing,
that intelligence has no basis; and then its service-function can eventually become a harming function . . .
And any intelligence service working against this basic intelligence works against the basic interests of her
own country and people . . . . .
National intelligence services against corruption
A national anti-corruption police could also be part of a national intelligence service, or a national intelligence service could also serve as a secret
And this potential can on a basic level be seen as the most important function for the near future of all intelligence services in the world . . .
And anyway the transparency
and big brother principle is being applied on a global scale already.
National intelligence services against criminality
As national intelligence services are used for national security and against terrorism already, they could also easily be used to trace criminals in
National intelligence services can also function as a source of information for the police in search for data about criminals at large and their networks.
However intelligence services have also to be
held responsible for the sharing and use of information regarding the privacy of individual citizens. This to protect as much as possible the privacy of individual citizens.
Big brother and sense of freedom Thesis
In our current times of
transparency the big brother principle also contains a very basic disadvantage; the very high price of the loss of a basic sense of freedom. Freedom, one of our most basic human values . . .
Meant is the threat and
danger of misuse or misinterpretation of collected data; and awareness of that threat forces us to be continuously alert on what we say, which basically means a continuous loss of sense of freedom of speech . . .
And this loss of sense of freedom can only be avoided by the reliability and trustwor- thiness of all intelligence services. And this trustworthiness can only be guaranteed by the basic intelligence, morality, and moral
identity of any member of that intelligence and her government . . .
Inner body of control Thesis
The first step towards such trustworthiness could be the set up and establishing of an inner body of control on use of personal data within intelligence
services, more or less comparable to a military police.
Such an inner body of control should have also a direct contact with the parliament and independent media, and with individual citizens in view of eventual
misinterpreta- tion, misuse, or leaking of personal data to unauthorized people or companies etc.
And moreover should all individual citizens have the basic right to see and eventually correct their registered
data, if proved to be wrong or out of context.
Extra outer body of control
Eventually an extra possibility to enhance trustworthiness is an outer body of control, which controls the over all functioning of the inner body of control, and
especially her relation with citizens.
The relation of the outer and inner body of control could more or less be compared to a parliament and senate and also with the function of an ombudsman.
This outer body of
control could also have the governmental function of basic IQ testing (human nature, human values and moral identity etc.), for all government officials, including those working in intelligence services. And this kind of
testing can also be seen as the most basic prevention against misuse of power and misuse and misinterpretation of collected personal information.
Collection of personal data Thesis
For protection of privacy and
sense of freedom for every human, all collection and use of personal data should be restricted by law, and trade in personal data should be considered as society-hostile, and basically as a crime . . .
should be established in law that all personal data can only be used to prevent or prove crime and corruption.
A special (inner or outer) body of control on personal data may distribute general data of populations and
categories of people without showing personal data, to companies organizations and others.
However, individual citizens can be free of course to agree with companies or commer- cial organizations etc. to share their
personal data for agreed purposes.
Personal data control as a positive social control
ICT- personal data registration basically means a huge potential of social control, more or less comparable to that of our ancient ancestors of some ten thousand
years ago. The only difference is, that there it was about a direct and known control, and in our situation it is about an anonymous and eventual control.
The effect on our morality is however more or less the same; under
continuous social control we have to behave and think in a morally positive, or at least acceptable way. And with an immoral mentality one has to live then under a continuous stress to get caught; but people in a morally
positive mentality can feel relaxed and free.
The crucial question is however about the reliability, intelligence, sincerity and integrity of those in control over our data. Hence, crucial is a basic
intelligence as mentioned of those with access to our data, and being tested to the very highest standards by the proposed body of control, and by an independent (moral) judicature.
However, even then the question remains of our sense of freedom . . . For we know, that no human is perfect . . . , so in the end also a matter of trust . . . . .
Ancient times leadership and democracy
As mentioned, in ancient times when
our far ancestors moved from the trees to the savannah their life became more risky, for now they were no more safe for predators. And in their band-size communities in the savannah all of the most dominant and fear- less high
testosterone males had soon been eaten by predators, when defending their group. And now all other males had to work together to defend their group, in which they were stronger than only one dominant male. And as all fearless
dominant leaders were continuously selected out, slowly first democracy must have developed . . . Democracy by a badly needed consensus regarding their defence, and in equality in a low testosterone shared male leadership . .
And, in a much later stage, ultimate decisions may have been in the hands of the very eldest, most loved, or most respected wise man of the group.
Leadership and kingdom
Still later, in bigger communities, a continuation of that wise
man leadership showed up in the democratic choice of leaders and kings etc. And these kings or chosen leaders were idolized, and kingdom became inheritable.
This inheritability also out of idolization, and out of
the idea that the eldest son of a chosen beloved leader must be a good leader as well.
In old historic writings and in fairy tales can often be found the mentioning of a wise king or emperor. Wisdom was seen as a
quality for kingdom.
However, also contemporary macaque monkeys have chosen leaders, (based on sym- pathy and/or genes) and in the first place chosen by females.
Ideal political leadership Thesis
For an ideal political
leadership are needed integrity, empathy, loyalty, responsibility- awareness and intelligence and all of our basic human virtues, and absence of social dominance drive, narcissism, psychopathy and fanaticism.
So basically like in ancient times, to be a social and wise man.
Regarding our human nature natural political leadership creates sympathy, natural idolization and a natural human trust and loyalty. As an example
could be seen the late Nelson Mandela of South Africa.
Known and unknown leadership Thesis
In the ancient past people have been living democratic and natural in small groups with known eldest, most loved, or most respected wise man as their advisors or occasional leaders, and eventually in a natural sympathetic hierarchy.
Today however we are living in huge populations with unknown far away and powerful leaders, assisted by a powerful group of unknown people and where feelings of direct connectedness are missing.
And narcissism of leadership makes that even worse, and this counts as well for democracies as for dictatorships. Hence the urgent need for extensive tests for all political functions.
Powers in world politics
World-wide politics are based on the
power of all kinds of collective egocentric and collective egoistic groups of people which are just very small minorities in their states.
In democratic states there are also big chosen groups of power, which are however
influenced, manipulated or bribed by all kinds of small groups or individuals.
And in general must be said that our world politics are based on "might makes right", and a global "culture" of greed, power, corruption and
violence . . .
Might makes right
This kind of politics of might makes right is based on respectlessness, and on ego- centrism, arrogance and narcissism, or on a more or less psychopathic, or more or less Machiavellian mentality . . .
And the principle
of might makes right is also based on a lack of integrity, empathy, loyalty, modesty and justice . . . And also on disregard towards the universal human standards of respect, reliability, equality, peace, freedom, safety and
responsibility . . . Basically oppressive, immoral, and malicious . . .
All imperialism and political dominance is based on the egocentric and narcissistic mentality of might makes right, which is the basic aspect
of an antisocial personality disorder . . . . .
Division of power in democratic states
In general all democratic states in the world function with a division
of powers: a gover- ning power, the government, a lawmaking and controlling power the parliament, and a judicial power, the independent judicature.
Basic is here however the acceptation of a rule of law, which constrains all powers.
And officially an extra control on these three powers is supposed to be the "free and independent" media; however in practice never really independent, politically coloured, and often corrupt . . .
Capitalism is based on the human survival
instinct and on the gathering, creation and possession of property, and on individual freedom. And basically there is nothing wrong in possessing values and property; however in view of our social human nature there is
something wrong in living just out of blind, antisocial, and uninhibited greed.
There is something basically wrong in egocentric carelessness and repectlessness towards other people, and towards nature which we are all part
of. And there is basi- cally something wrong in living in an overflow of wealth, next to people living in poverty, underdevelopment, and misery.
Capitalism can only be humane as a moderated or social capitalism. Moderated
by a moral understanding, natural moral standards, and natural moral virtues.
A capitalism, without the respectless exploitation and suppression of others. It should be based on a natural humane culture of integrity,
respect, empathy and loyalty.
Capitalism and human nature
Capitalism has developed in contradiction to the evolutionary developed
social nature of man. A social nature, developed in small communities in cooperation, helpfulness, reliability, respect, friendship, empathy, loyalty, trust and integrity.
Starting in an ancient past capitalism was a way of thinking of only rich people like rulers and landowners; and that ownership originated in appropriation and often also in fight, murder and slaughtering.
However in the last century or so in America capitalism has developed as a general way of thinking.
And in the beginning it was still more or less inhibited by the social morality of Christianity. However with the growth of prosperity and wealth Christian social morality has declined and fallen into decay, and capitalism has become more and more narcissistic, antisocial and society-hostile, and more and more extreme . . .
Capitalistic extremism Thesis
Capitalistic extremism is not only based on the human survival instinct, but upon a basically society-hostile individual survival ideology; on egocentrism, respectlessness and greed, and an almost unlimited freedom to exploit,
cheat, lie and mislead all other people. It is basically aimed at a social-Darwinistic snake-pit society . . .
An egocentric and egoistic grab-culture, based on an antisocial and basically psycho- pathic
mentality. Living merely (or even not) according the rules of the law. And any- thing not prohibited is allowed . . .
Capitalistic extremism is a respectless, society-hostile and irresponsible culture of boundless
greed, parasitical exploitation, lies, trickery and deceit. And it is also based on domination and suppression by the power of money and corruption, and on misuse of the natural trust of any socially positive individual . . .
We can think of greed- and
power based uncontrolled use of chemistry, GM and nanotechnology in the environment, and of deforestation, overfishing, green-washing, banking-fraud, cigarette-companies, oil-companies and nuclear pollution, etc. etc.
has to move from this wild, extreme and unbounded individual-survival capitalism which is society-hostile, to a much more moderated or social capitalism.
A totalitarian society without private property is another extreme, and total
human equality is unrealistic. In a general sense all people are basically equal, but on the level of individual talent and development every human being is unique.
And basically there is nothing wrong with
possession of values and property, for creativity and gathering property are part of our human nature.
But for the development of creativity in a society also freedom is needed; and in the first place the freedom to possess
or dispose, but also a freedom of thought, and a freedom of expression of thoughts, which awakens the creativity of others.
If there is no freedom of thought and expression of thought, then this is against our human nature
and basic human values.
In communism of the past individual citizens were subordinated submitted and often oppressed by a distant, narcissistic, incompetent and corrupt dictatorial leadership. However also western
democracies have seen many narcissistic power-hungry career politicians who were often incompetent and in secret corrupt.
The super-social nature of man doesn't mean
that the ideal political philosophy has to be socialism. As soon as we make of any philosophy an "ism" it becomes rigged and inflexible, and it is bound to become a stagnant pool.
Understanding our social human
nature and our universal human values, standards and virtues is enough.
And socialism is just like communism a totalitarian, non democratic, and basically dictatorial ideology. And also the idea of all means of production
in the hands of the state has not proved to be a real success; it excludes entrepreneurship and hampers human creativity, although some state-control on companies is needed in any society.
And institutions like health
care, insurance companies and banks should be non-profit institutions in service of the society, and under state control. And also the instrument of taxes can be used to regulate social justice regarding income and social
However this doesn't mean that socialism is something totally wrong; only that "ism" should basically be flexible, not extreme, and in a constant openness for change, for life means constant change . . .
Autocracy / dictatorship
In general autocrats
and dictators are basically egocentric power oriented bosses; and so basically not friends, but often enemies of individual citizens.
However as said, leaders are basically friends who show empathy and understanding.
But also many dictators of the past have called themselves "the big leader", trying to suggest their respect, empathy and understanding. And this may have been true for some enlightened despots of the past.
in general can be said that dictators are always in a struggle to maintain their power. And often their method is using their power for suppression.
Often they maintain their power by manipulating people with propaganda,
but also with deterrence and fear; and then this means basically the use of terror.
Fascism is based on manipulation of a society towards a collective egocentrism of belonging to a superior race, culture or nation, by idolized power oriented dictators.
And the nation has to be cleansed from all kinds of demonized and undesired people.
But it is also a dictatorial and militaristic structured political culture, based on order, discipline and obedience, and on
intolerance, suppression, violence and terror . . .
Fascism is totalitarian, and it goes against our social human nature, as it has a sys- tem-based lack of individual human respect, human-friendliness and empathy.
It is a suppressive militaristic culture of licking up and kicking down. A culture of intolerance without any respect for the individual freedom of subordinates.
In fascism human life has no value compared to the
principles of the system. Hence inhumanely strict punishments as a deterrent example making for those who do not obey or do not fit in the rules of the regime.
This suppressive manipulation with fear, the
terror-principle of fascism, can be seen as the worst and most inhumane aspect of it . . .
Fascism and psychopathy Thesis
Seeing the working principles of fascism as manipulation of the masses, the ruthless use of power, dominance, repression and
violence, and its inhumanely strict punish- ments as a deterrent example making, or manipulation with fear, the terror-principle of fascism, it has basically to be considered as an organized collective psychopathic principle . . .
This because of its manipulativeness, ruthless use of power, use of (collective) ego- centricity, and its lack of human respect, empathy and conscience, and its intolerance and mercilessness, its manipulation with fear, its
(collective) narcissism (nationalism), and its lying (demonizing of unwanted minorities) and violation of the rights of other states without any hesitation or remorse. Also the totalitarian power character of fascism correlates
with psychopathic possessiveness and control.
And all of this has occurred in the democratic
state of Germany in the past century, by a huge concentration of power in one narcissistic/psychopathic individual and his clique . . .
Nationalism chauvinism and narcissism
Chauvinism can basically be
seen as a collective egocentrism but it can also be worse and show itself as a collective narcissism, like in the Roman empire and Third Reich.
A people or nation so much obsessed with her own superiority, importance
and inte- rests that it starts losing her realism, and when empathy and respect towards other peoples or nations is no more a question.
At present also many nations in the world tend towards a collective narcissism
out of feelings of national, historic, or cultural inferiority, or because of their manipulative nar- cissistic leadership or culture . . .
As history has shown, when nationalism develops into chauvinism and a
collective narcissism it can become a threat to other nations and to global peace.
Patriotism collective narcissism and global unity Thesis
Patriotism collective narcissism and chauvinism are basically against global unity and against freedom and peace of humanity.
No sincere politician wants division
in his own country for it means a loss of stability and prosperity. And only unity, stability and prosperity can make him or her a great politician and his or her nation a great nation. However for this is needed international
collaboration, sharing of knowledge, trade, and trust and reliability. And because of that also a globally shared basic morality . . .
Global unity and one humanity is in the interest of any human on the earth.
And any politician striving for patriotism collective narcissism and chauvinism - and so for divi- sion of humanity - basically shows a humanity-hostile mentality, and ultimately this could even be seen as a crime against his
nation and humanity . . . . .
Global unity against chauvinism and nationalism
Global communication, image and lifestyle exchange and global trade and science as well as multinational companies and global migration
brings humanity to a more and more understanding of all other people in the world, and this is bound to create more and more unity and peace in the world.
It moves humanity more and more from cultural and
nationalistic identities towards a more evolutionary based and cosmopolitan identity and way of thinking. And those nations or cultures who are going to stick with chauvinistic nationalism might become the retarded nations of
the future . . .
Of course there is nothing wrong in loving one's country ,culture or people, but blind chauvinism means in the end retardedness. And especially when chauvinism means
a collective narcissism . . .
A basic problem
Democracy is a natural phenomenon in basically small groups of people, based on
equality and mutual respect. (all voters respect each other as equals, and all voters respect the votes of others). Basically when there are three individuals, agreement of two is enough to decide about the group.
there is a basic problem when there is no equality in knowledge, under- standing, or information of the voters . . .
Democracy and responsibility Thesis
Democratic voting-right means also voting power, and makes voters also responsible for the consequences of their political choices.
Even when they have been misled by promises of political parties or candidates.
And democratic political choices can make voters responsible for the misery of many other people in their society, or even in the world .
Voting on candidates Thesis
problem of democracy is personal sympathy for basically unknown candidates, which can easily be narcissistic, or even more or less psychopathic and manipulative people. Hence the basic importance of psychological and moral
However sympathy for certain candidates can also be based on a genetic attraction of physical appearance, of which most people are not aware. And especially for candi- dates of a different gender. Hence in
democratic states elections for candidates should always be separate of elections for political parties or political issues . . .
Voting power and egocentrism
As already suggested, democratic voting-power means also a
power over the fate of minorities in a society.
Egocentric voting in a democracy means in fact a misuse of power and can eventually be society-hostile, and can eventually be seen as a criminal act against minorities . . .
However free democratic elections are basically secret; and hence they require a tho- rough moral awareness in the sense of empathy, loyalty, justice, integrity, and humane idealism, which however in all modern and rich
democracies are lacking . . .
Polarization and division of societies
Although in the sense of freedom democracy has more or less shown to be the best
political system to date, it has also to be seen that distinct political parties in a society basically create division, and can polarize a society and diminish or destroy unity, especially in case of a broad political spectrum.
And the stronger the polarization, the more political unrest and extremism, and ulti- mately the bigger the danger of revolution and eventually civil war . . .
Moreover a multi party democracy always
contains the danger of the development of fascism.
Democracy, power oriented Thesis
All contemporary democracies in the world can be seen as power oriented democra- cies; based on a democratic choice of parties and leaders to be in power.
And in fact all power oriented democracies still contain the element of dictatorship.
In a democracy the leader of a political party becomes a boss as soon as he or she comes to power.
And if a certain party can gain
enough votes and sympathy, then their leader can easily become a dictator (we can think of Adolf Hitler as a historic example).
But also if this is not the case, the president or prime minister and his chosen few
still have some real dictatorial power with their majority in parliament (think for instance of foreign relations, marshal law, and declaration of war, etc. . . . . . )
Merito-referendal democracy Thesis
A possible solution for all of these basic problems
could be a more direct democracy as a "merito-referendal democracy" or "conditional referendum democracy", carried out as an ICT- direct democracy.
This means: voting only on issues, and no more on power for political parties.
However, based on conditional referenda . . .
The right to vote on an issue
depends on proved basic knowledge and information about the subject, theme or topic. (controlled by computer examination)
Moreover all voters have to possess a certain level of basic (social) intelligence and a
morally positive identity, and to be empathetic and respectful towards all non-voters. (also computer examination)
Control on government:
However for control on the government and the voting
system etc. a chosen indepen- dent parliament and senate has to stay.
Some important details Theses
Almost no chance for fraud (with a public-controllable voting-computer), and chance of fake votes can be made almost zero by eventually transparent
Someone asked for a fake vote has anyway to pass a computer examination first, and can based on the needed information for this, disagree, or discuss the subject.
And moreover the voting-condition of basic
intelligence and a morally positive identity implies a moral education and moral awareness, and is also strongly preventive.
Besides this, fake voting can be considered and established as a crime as well of the voter
as of the instigator.
Government parliament and senate
Members of parliament and senate are chosen by voters as specialists on specific basic subjects and ministries, and no more as representatives of parties.
All members of the government should be initially chosen by specialists in the parlia- ment (specialists chose specialists) and affirmed by senate and referenda.
Among members of parliament should
also be high level specialists in the field of ICT and the voting system to control the transparent electronic voting.
And all members of government parliament and senate should have an open curriculum vitae and a
high level of basic intelligence, and also be tested on a morally positive identity, level of empathy, narcissism and psychopathy.
The government governs controlled by specialists of parliament and led by the out-
come of referenda.
Referenda can be started by the government, the parliament, the senate and anybody who knows enough about some issue.
The parliament and senate set the level of knowledge needed for voting, based on an established minimal
number of voters; depending on general importance of the issue, for example a minimum of 25% of the population till 70 to 90% of the population for the biggest issues like a constitution or so.
A referendum needs not
always to be completed on one day; depending on the subject could it also be established on a week or sometimes even a month or more, to attain to that minimum of 25% or more.
Party-based democracies and morality
Also in existing party-based democracies similar conditions for voting-power could be applied; e.g. computer examination of basic knowledge of the of the objectives of the distinct parties, and the moral understanding and
responsibility-awareness of the voters. The voting on candidates based on sympathy and personal impression can also be separate of party elections; hence every party needs many known candidates. Candidate voting can be free
then for everybody, without conditions.
Out of understanding of extreme political objectives in a moral sense, also existing political parties may change their objectives; and an advanced moral understanding
and preventive testing of politicians may also diminish narcissism, corruption and deception in politics.
A narrowing democratic spectrum
With the general failure and collapse of communism and socialism in the world the political spectrum in many
democracies in the world has become narrower, and with the failure and ongoing collapse of capitalistic extremism the spectrum of democracy is becoming still narrower.
Extreme left and extreme right will for most
people be no more options, which dimi- nishes polarization in all democratic countries in the world, and it creates more unity and stability in these countries. And especially in countries with a strongly opposite two party
However our left or right way of thinking is in general dependent of subjects and issues and this anyway asks for a referendal democracy.
Advantages of a merito-referendal democracy Thesis
The advantages are: less power and possibility for mistakes,
corruption and misuse of power by politicians, no more antisocial (collective egocentric) voting in existing demo- cracies, and more agreement, contentment and peace with governments, and by a lack of parties, more
stability and unity in a society.
And compared to the Swiss referendal democracy less chance of impulsive votes and no votes based on a lack of knowledge or understanding.
But also no more chance for the
development of fascism in at first democratic states, and no more chance for unrest and revolutions in at first autocratic, or at first commu- nist states, and politicians can become more and more independent of the rigged and
inflexible ideas of their parties. And really important basics can always be established in a constitution and rule of law.
And advantages are also: less arrogance of politicians, and more respect for politi- cians; and
most importantly, less distance between the people and the government. So also more stability, peace and prosperity in such a state . . .
Easy transition Thesis
Easy controlled and gradual
transition from dictatorial regimes to a merito-referendal democracy is possible, and also easy controlled and gradual transition from commu- nist or socialist governments is possible.
And an easy controlled and
gradual transition from multiparty democracies to a refe- rendal democracy is also possible. This, by the establishment of a party for referendal democracy, and by more and more conditional referenda.
Referendum-party can start the building up of a new (shadow)parliament in her own fraction of parliament, and of course controlled by her own referenda.
It can also import specialists of existing parties, who do not
have to stick anymore to their former party-ideology. And also ex-politicians could come back.
Neutrality of media Thesis
An extra, but very important independent control and communication power added to the three
basic powers of a democratic state are basically the media.
However media will be more independent in a referendal democracy, for there will be more neutrality of journalism as there are no more political parties with
their (often antisocial) ideologies. And a tested high level basic intelligence and responsibility- awareness and morally positive identity increases their integrity and reliability.
Eventually media could also be
managed by a conditional referendal system of the users.
Justice law and punishment
Basics of law and justice
The basics of law and justice are the moral standard of equality among people, and the most basic moral standard of respect and our basic human qualities of
intelligence, realism and responsibility-awareness.
So in general can be said that our morality based on our human nature is the basis of law and justice, as well as of social justice.
And in fact is what we call
justice always a social justice, for just is that, what is righteous in relation to others.
However in general social justice is seen as justice between groups of people.
But social justice is in fact the same justice based on equality, respect, and morality.
The aspect of social justice is very important in democracies where unconscious collective egocentric voting can create a harming
social injustice for minorities.
Here can be seen the importance of a moral identity and moral virtues like integrity, human-friendliness, loyalty and empathy.
Social rights and duties
Our social rights and duties are established by our social human nature.
And our social nature means: living together in connectedness, cooperation, reliability, loyalty and friendship.
Our social rights and duties are in fact our moral rights and duties.
Social right to possess and a social duty to share Thesis
Our right to possess is part of our human nature of hunting and gathering. However who does not share in a natural small community shows a lack of empathy
and shows respectlessness to all others. He or she loses friends, and loses trust, reliability and respect of all others. And this means also a loss of help and protection of others, which creates isolation, loss of
connectedness and safety, and in that way loneliness misery, and an early death.
Our social duty to share comes forth from our wish to be part of a society; it can be seen as the price to be paid to be part of a
society . . . . .
Right to possess and loyalty Thesis
The right to possess is also one of the basics of capitalism; however not so much the
social duty to share . . . . .
Many are opposed to pay their taxes out of a society-hostile mentality, and out of their egocentric individual survival-mentality.
However a society-hostile mentality
can also have a reason in the corrupt structure of someone's society; and then taxpaying seems to be a throwing away of money.
But taxes should basically be paid out of loyalty and for the prosperity of our whole
society. And if one lives in a very corrupt society, one could also choose to act in a positive creative way with money to support his or her society . . .
E.g. to develop or support educational and developmental
activities in poverty areas, or to invest in starting or small entrepreneurship, etc.
Rule of law and rights and duties
A rule of law imposes also judicial duties; e.g. our judicial duty to be reliable, and to be true which means social integrity and sincerity.
If we sign a contract, we have the judicial duty to keep our word. The law doesn't allow us to be unreliable . . . It asks for integrity, one of our most basic human virtues.
The law also forces us to be loyal, and to pay our taxes.
And the law forces us to be responsible, and to respect others (criminal justice).
The law forces us also to become intelligent (duty to go to school).
And the law also gives us the right to possess, and protects that right.
Criminal justice or criminal law is by nature based on our natural
human morality of right and wrong. It is the reaction of a society or state to respectless human-hostile and harmful behaviour, or in contemporary times also harmful behaviour against nature which we are all part of.
Traditional criminal justice
criminal justice is historically based on the power of rulers, and on the aim of deterrence; but also on incapacitation or prevention, retribution or vengeance for the victims, or punishment "to learn from", and more recently
Incapacitation is often officially the main intention of criminal justice; however in practice it is just a temporary effect of the system.
And punishment "to learn from" is no more than
wishful thinking; for most criminals only learn in jail how to be more skilful, and moreover jail punishment strengthens their criminal identity.
However the aim of deterrence is the respectless power-oriented policy of
dictatorial terror-regimes of the past. And it has hardly any effect on society-hostile criminals with a criminal identity.
Justice of retribution in sense of revenge Thesis
Judicial revenge in
general aims at satisfaction of feelings of vengeance (out of anger and frustration) of crime victims. This means however that it is based on the troubled mental state of crime victims; and not on any objective logic or
A court degrades itself if it tries to satisfy to any degree the desires of a person in a mental state of frustration and diminished consciousness and accountability.
And it's also important to
understand that the idea of justice of revenge comes out of the idea that a culprit has to "pay back", and cannot be allowed to get away with his crime. (see part l Revenge)
However, without revenge it is also possible not to allow a culprit to get away with it.
The answer is: "preventive criminal justice"; and here is no need for any revenge.
There is however a serious need in every society in the world for a total prevention of criminals and of criminality as such, and for
decriminalization of criminals and offenders . . .
Preventive criminal justice Thesis
Preventive criminal justice is based on protection of the society against criminals, and on prevention of criminality; but not on any punishment,
deterrence or vengeance.
Prevention in the broadest sense is the only intelligent way of dealing with criminality.
This means in the first place an accent on the right education, and on re-education and therapy to
decriminalize those who have developed a criminal mentality.
And caught and proven criminals can not be released into the society before being totally and proven re-socialized. Their exclusion from society should
however not be seen as a punishment or revenge, but as a prevention.
Preventive criminal justice is based on the modern aim of rehabilitation.
Freedom of choice Thesis
In regard to criminality humans have just a limited
freedom of choice; conditioning by education, disturbed social or mental development and (prenatal) brain-development play the major role in decision for acts of criminality.
Scientists have discovered that some 90% of young criminals in jails
suffer from a brain disorder. (lack of impulse control etc.) (D. Swaab, T. Doreleijers)
Hence criminality in general can be seen as caused by a mental disorder in youth.
It's important to know however that today even psychopaths can be cured and
re-socialized to a certain level (schema therapy). And in future these therapies may be even improved and supplemented with new therapies.
incidental- and semi-criminality as a society-disorder can be cured by a universal moral education or re-education and conditioning.
Guilt and responsibility Thesis
The question can also be asked if criminals can be held
responsible for their criminal behaviour and for their criminal mentality.
Nobody will hold a to blindness mutilated child responsible for a deadly accident it has caused . . . , or somebody with the Down-syndrome who
did so . . . But what about somebody with an innate lack of impulse control . . . ? Or with criminal parents . . . ?
Punishment for criminals is basically and morally wrong and unjust, and it serves no lasting,
sincere, and honest purpose . . .
Injustice of death-penalty Thesis
The death-penalty is not a real punishment for a convict; for until the last split second before the execution the convict is still
unpunished; and from the moment of execution on, the executed is dead. And a dead person cannot be punished . . . Also a dead person cannot learn anything from his punishment, so for him it is also useless . . .
the death-penalty is an unjust and lifelong punishment for a whole group of innocent people: the fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters and children of the convict . . . And the death-penalty is based on the respectless,
fascism alike terror principle; punishment as a deterrent example making . . .
It is respectless, cruel and unjust towards all of the innocent relatives, and in fact a legalized crime against them . . . ; and it shows
respectlesness and contempt towards all citizens of a society, by using the terror principle against them . . .
Irreversibility of the death penalty
As generally known, the death penalty is an irreversible measure; however based on the arrogant and narcissistic assumption of infallibility of a court
of justice . . .
Recent scientific research has showed now that some 5 percent of executed death sentences in America were based on a miscarriage of justice . . . And the question can be asked if this is only the case
in America . . .
And the question was also asked, if we would fly if there would be a chance of plane crash of one in twenty . . .
For many a "crash" in court seems to be something else, because that is for someone else . . .
The death-penalty and vengeance
In general a desire for vengeance comes out of frustration and anger. But anger makes us very egocentric, and diminishes our consciousness and
understanding, and causes a demonizing and an urge to violence. Hence anger is undeniable a mental state of diminished accountability.
And also, the more egocentric, narcissistic or psychopathic a person, the more
the tendency to hostility, violence and vengeance . . . . . (lacking empathy . . .)
The desire for vengeance by death-penalty contains for some also the desire and delusion to eradicate "the evil", totally
unaware of the nature of criminality.
However not any vengeance or death-penalty can bring back a lost loved one; so for the relatives of a victim it is no solution, and not even a consolation . . .
consolation can be the prevention of repeating the crime; but for this death- penalty is not needed.
Almost all cultures in the world still see vengeance more or less as an acceptable act. Hence its integration in almost all
culture and education.
And integrated in all cultures it has become a conditioned way of thinking of almost everybody, however in a civilized society with a rule of law it has not any reasonable basis. And moreover, vengeance-conditioning makes a society more violent, ego- centric, narcissistic and psychopathic . . . . .
Lack of scientific basis
criminal justice is a heritage out of a primitive ancient past, based on the "justice" of punishment, vengeance and deterrence.
However humanity has to free itself from the chains of the dark past of the middle- ages; from
unconsciousness, ignorance, and basically stupidity.
Traditional criminal justice has its roots in he dark past of the middle-ages and it has not any scientific basis . . .
criminal justice has. Many rehabilitation projects and therapies have already delivered evidence of its feasibility . . .
Justice and democratic responsibility
In a power-based democratic state the majority of citizens
are responsible for their chosen governments, and so also for their policy regarding development of criminality, as well as for their handling of criminality and justice.
And also in a referendal democracy the voting
citizens are responsible for the policy regarding development of criminality, as well as for their handling of criminality and its justice. However here only those who understand the subject will decide . . . . .
Criminal court Thesis
Criminal trials should only be decided by a jury of independent forensic specialists
with a high level of empathic ability and moral education. And female suspects by a predominantly female jury and male suspects by a
predominantly male jury. And also judges should only be people with a high empathic ability and understanding of human nature and morality. High empathy for victims and suspects means as much as pos- sible justice for
A verdict of guilt or proof of crime should be followed then by a check of mentality, and next by a conviction to therapy or re-education, and in case of danger for recidivism in preventive detention until proof
And the criminal court should no more be a hostile, scary unpredictable punishing system for citizens, offenders and criminals, but in fact a helping friend.
Punishment or re-education Thesis
The most plausible reason for a punishment or fine is in general
seen in the aim of teaching someone to avoid repeating of wrongdoing.
The question is however, if there are not any better and more effective ways of teaching than fines or punishment; and also, if there are no more
respectful and humane ways of teaching. For, anybody can make mistakes and do something wrong . . . ; and giving fines or punishment is basically a human-hostile act which easily creates a reverse hostile attitude, and the intention next time to be more careful and not to get caught. The best and most effective can only be re-education and/or psychotherapy. And for any dangerous criminals in preventive detention until proved cure . . .
Justice and punishment Thesis
Any punishment is basically a human-hostile act, and basically an act against the most basic and universal moral standard of human respect.
And any punishment in a civilized state with a rule of law is also
against the moral standard of justice, and against the universal human virtues of justice, empathy, inte- grity, realism, and intelligence, for punishment doesn't serve any true purpose . . .
Also revenge or
vengeance in a civilized state with a rule of law is against the moral standard of justice, and against the universal human virtues of justice, realism and intelligence, and against the most basic moral standard of human
respect; for also revenge and vengeance serve here no reasonable purpose . . .
Punishment for children
A wrong way of teaching Thesis
The injustice of
punishment counts also for children, for punishment of children is always against the moral standard of respect, and against our human virtues of empathy, integrity, loyalty, realism and intelligence.
punishment of children means basically a teaching and conditioning of egocentrism, respectlessness, enmity, dominance and violence . . . And especially if corporal punishment is involved.
Children should basically learn the opposite: violence and respectlessness are
not the way of solving your problems, but dialogue and understanding are needed . . .
And punishment "to learn from" is in general merely a theoretical concept; in general it is just an excuse to justify a
power act out of frustration or anger . . .
The only just way of teaching misbehaving children is a short temporary separation
to eventually calm down, discuss the effect of the behaviour, and the reason of it, and make them think over and understand the wrong of
their behaviour. However without any anger, reproach or condemning the child . . . ; it's just about understanding the reason and the wrong of the behaviour. And also is important here, to admit that also mummy and daddy can
make mistakes sometimes, or can be angry sometimes . . .
As soon as the child understands why the behaviour was wrong, and can apologize, and promise good behaviour, it should immediately be approved, or even
praised, and friendship should be re-affirmed, and then it immediately should be allowed to come back to the social environment. And in case of damage, hurt or respectlessness to others it should also be asked to
apologize or shake hands with others.
So time-out not as a punishment, but as a reflection- and learning process to under- stand right and wrong behaviour and thinking.
Misbehaving bigger children
Also for bigger children the same time-out
principle can be used, in the sense that they can be asked aside for a personal talk. And also with bigger children is very important the admission of making mistakes ourselves. This brings us out of authority and allows an
approach as a friend. And asking them aside and giving them attention shows sincere concern.
Most important is to come here to at least some agreement; eventually can in a next talk when things have settled down a little,
and disagreements or different points of view have been thought over more agreements be found.
Of course is our ability to correct bigger children very much dependent of our own moral understanding, empathy, and the
previous education of the child.
Also re-education and therapy of criminals can be seen as the time-out principle . . .
Teaching of self-discipline Thesis
The only right way of teaching discipline to a child can be a teaching of self-discipline.
But only a friend can teach a child self-discipline; and an
authority cannot, for he or she is basically an enemy. However the least what a parent should be to his or her child is a friend . . .
But sadly, for many frustrated stressed and egocentric people it can even be difficult
to be a friend to their own children . . .
Authoritarian and power-based education Thesis
It can be observed that authoritarian
education is very egocentric and based on dominance, respectlessness, obedience and punishment; basically fascism alike.
It creates a lack of moral identity and responsibility-awareness, and a power-based egocentric
mentality, and/or a robot-mentality; based on "allowed or not".
However, non-authoritarian education doesn't mean: no education (!)
Children have to know and understand their limits and boundaries; only
not out of a respectless dominant and authoritarian behaviour, which basically means a power- based and hostile behaviour. For the outcome of it is, that children get conditioned to practice that same power-based egocentric
and hostile behaviour on others, and can also develop a hostile power-based identity . . .
Condemnation reproach and blame Thesis
Authoritarian education also often means frequent condemnation, reproach and blame, which can create a low self-esteem in the child.
However the worst effect of it is, that it by and by creates a negative self-image.
And a negative self-image can easily bring a child to the development of a human- or society-hostile identity and criminality; so to the opposite of a human-friendly and mo- rally positive identity.
Frustration power and violence Thesis
already frustration out of lack of human-connectedness creates sooner or later an egocentric survival-mentality and anger, a lack of empathy, respectlesness hatred, and even malice.
And egocentrism as well as a power-based
identity or a low self-esteem can create a desire for the experience of power.
And if there is in one person a combination of long term frustration, and a power-based identity or low self-esteem, then such person can
sooner or later out of that frustration and a desire for use of power easily come to violence and commit crimes.
Conditioning of an immoral mentality Thesis
Many movies, books and games for children contain a conditioning of impressive and fake macho-heroism and power-ego, and a vengeance- and violence-conditioning.
frequent identification with egocentric power-ego's tends to create by and by an egocentric narcissistic and a basically immoral identity.
In general this means a conditioning of stupidity, immoral extreme egocentrism and
respectlesness and "vengeance-justice" as a normal modern "moral" standard . . .
Basically a teaching of the law of the strongest, which means the systematic destruc- tion of a child's natural sincere and social
nature . . .
conditioning of an egocentric individual survival-mentality and conditioning of
hostility, and aggression-conditioning can often be observed. This, instead of a basic natural social conditioning, or empathic human-friendliness-conditioning.
Often can also be seen a conditioning to demonizing, or
an enemy-conditioning, to repress empathy and to justify aggression and respectless power-based egocentric behaviour, or an inhumanely cruel behaviour.
And most modern computer games are basically a fight and destruction
conditioning; a systematic programming of the brain to an egocentric use of power and ruthless destruction. Or in other words, a pure aggression training . . .
Glorification of power and violence Thesis
Glorification of use of
power and violence and heroism in movies and games etc. stimulates the development of egocentrism by suggesting (self)importance, next to a conditioning of violent behaviour. Especially in case of a negative (evil) heroism.
Identification with evil heroes in movies can happen easily out of a state of anger and frustration, or out of inferiority or a negative self-image . . .
However such temporary identifications can out of bad
circumstances by and by change into a negative and evil self-image as a secondary ego-identity.
And in later changing personal circumstances or in later long term frustration and anger such a secondary evil
identity can become (eventually temporary) one's main identity, and bring someone eventually to extreme violence and crime.
This, because our identity changes with changing circumstances . . .
Conditioning towards psychopathic mentality Thesis
Many modern movies and games contain a conditioning of a respectless misuse of power and merciless cruelty out of an immoral heroism.
Merciless cruelty needs an absence or total suppression of empathy, and at the
same time an evil self-image, or heroic ruthless power-identity, or a mental state of extreme anger and frustration.
Basically such entertainment means a training in unconscious repression of natural human empathy;
and in that way it is a conditioning of merciless cruelty and stimu- lates a psychopathic development in frustrated egocentric youngsters, and people with a semi-psychopathic or narcissistic mentality already.
So in fact
such entertainment contains a conditioning towards a psychopathic menta- lity of power-based respectlesness and ruthlessness towards humans, human life, and life in general . . .
Responsibility-awareness of producers
It's high time for writers,
movie-producers, game producers, and also commercial advertisers, to understand the impact of their creations and their moral responsibility
Up till now ratings and cash have been in general the basic forces of production.
However, any movie, book, game or even news-bulletin contains educational mes- sages; and all producers writers, directors and actors have
to be aware of that, and to understand their basic and huge moral responsibility . . .
Rule of law and police
Order peace and safety
A rule of law is based on human equality and
constrains the power and behaviour of governments and of all citizens, to avoid misuse of power and to maintain a certain order, peace and safety, which gives a certain space to a relative freedom and happiness for everybody.
Inner and outer discipline Thesis
A ruling of the law is basically for an
outer discipline; but moral understanding and basic moral virtues like integrity, empathy, respect and justice create an inner disci- pline and responsibility-awareness.
However outer discipline has not much meaning without
inner discipline; for rules can never be sufficient to keep a society in peace. But inner discipline and responsebility- awareness can even without a rule of law create an outer discipline and social behaviour and peace . .
Function of a rule of law Thesis
In a survival-society it has the function to create order, and to prevent to a certain level misuse of power in that society, and to create safety peace and justice.
It roughly states what is right and wrong, and it also describes rights and duties.
In a socially and morally conscious society it can have a back-up function for basic moral standards, but in general it always
represents just roughly what is right and wrong; our moral understanding and moral virtues are basic here.
The law can also be seen as a rough guideline, as a comparative verification concept for right and wrong when it is not clear in some situation.
Police and rule of law
In general the function of the police is basically to keep
order by controlling the society on behaviour according the laws of that society.
And in connection with this, the police has also the task of investigation of crimes, and searching for criminals at large, to create safety
peace and justice.
But the laws of societies always have a moral basis. And so in fact the police has basically a moral function in service of her society; basically to protect the moral stan- dards and the moral
values of that society.
And as such the police is basically a servant of her society . . .
So no need for any arrogance of power; for such attitude is contradictory to her basic function and integrity
. . .
Police and power
The police has
the right and the power to arrest people and to put people in jail, power to give fines, power to create local order, and power to investigate.
And this means, the police has the right and monopoly on use of violence.
However, only a right on use of violence to create safety, peace and justice . . .
If the police becomes arrogant and misuses her power, she loses the respect of the people, and creates a hostile or
defensive attitude among the normal citizens.
Police and respect Thesis
Respect of a society for the police is created by respectful and disciplined behaviour of the police
herself. So also by her way of approaching people and the way of using her power.
Repressive behaviour of a police becomes easily respectless and it often means a misuse of power, and can easily cross the
boundary of crime . . .
Misuse of power by police is known all over the world, as well as corruption in police.
However, controlling citizens on keeping with the law is basically a moral function, and
if the police fails in moral respectful behaviour (and moral mentality) it can never gain respect of citizens.
Police and social attitude
Basically the police can be an understanding friend of the society, or she can show a distant robot-mentality. The robot is without understanding and
shows an inhumane attitude and has basically a respectless attitude. Out of a robot-mentality can easily come an arrogant, and even a more or less society-hostile mentality . . .
Also a collective egocentric
power-attitude, or bossy attitude (often also out of fear) can create a more or less society-hostile mentality of a police . . .
This kind of collective egocentric mentalities and attitudes create also a
hostile attitude of citizens towards the police, and so also a loss of human respect .
Police and aggression
Aggression towards the police is always based on a lack of respect for the police.
This can be aggression of criminals, who see themselves as
enemies of the police and hence have no respect for the police, or, it can be aggression of frustrated or angry citizens.
In very egocentric capitalistic survival societies there is bound to be much frustration, anger
and misery among citizens; hence here a difficult task for the police . . . And the more frustration in a society, the more aggression and criminality, and the more police will be needed, and all of this has to be paid by
the citizens . . .
Police and deterrence
In many modern societies the police uses an impressive appearance and violent behaviour for deterrence, to create a "respect" which is basically fear.
Deterrence is from a moral point of view basically a misuse
of power, and it shows contempt towards all of the non-criminal citizens, for deterrence means to manipulate people with fear, which is one of the basic characteristics and instruments of fascism and terror regimes . . . . .
Police and individual responsibility
Although the police as well as the military wears uniforms, the police has no military function. Obedience and translating commands of higher ranked people are different, for the work of the police is basically not warfare.
Each individual policeman has the choice to carry out orders as a robot, (Befehl ist Befehl), or with a moral understanding and sense of individual moral responsibility.
And also there is always an individual responsibility for obeying orders at all . . .
This especially in the view of fascism, where the police is an important instrument of those in power . . .
Police and government Thesis
Never police should become an instrument of governments to repress any group of
non-violent civilians; this would be contradictory to her function, and contradictory to her moral integrity.
And because of the
moral basis of her function the police could basically be ruled by a government-independent judicature, which should then be the most specialized on human morality.
So a police is then basically not part of the power of
any government. (think also of the rise of fascism in Hitler - Germany in world-war ll)
Governments or local governments can ask then assistance from the judicature as a third and independent party in any case of needed force, or to keep or restore public order.
Police and moral education Thesis
education to a moral understanding and moral awareness is a basic need for any individual on the earth; however especially for those who carry out a morally based professional task. And for the police this implies also an
understanding of the laws and the moral basis of the laws. And of course is also a sound education against corrup- tion of basic importance for any police.
And the police has also to hold a moral example-function
in the society; so also a moral identity and moral virtues are of basic importance . . .
Police and educational function Thesis
Human- and society-friendliness are contradictory to an egocentric and arrogant
And fines and punishment are also human-hostile; however, education is not.
Hence the police should also have a non-authoritarian educational function.
Instead of the power of giving fines the police should have the power (event. via the court) to oblige people to follow educational
Police and authority Thesis
The police as a servant of society
cannot have any authority where there is a rule of law; here the law represents the authority, and the police has to interpret it in an empathic and intelligent way.
However as a servant the police has a task. And as a
servant she can also have a certain power; however just to use it to protect the basic human values of safety, peace, freedom and justice in the society.
Apart from the police, a local or national government has an
authority and responsi- bility to make (respectful and intelligent) decisions within the law, e. g. to maintain
or restore order; and the police as a third party
can be asked then to carry out their request or measurements.
Capitalism democracy and fascism
The more poverty, misery, frustration and anger in a traditional democratic capitalistic society, the bigger the chance to end up in fascism.
For, the more poverty, misery, frustration and anger, the more survival-mentality and criminality.
Here charismatic new leaders can easily come to power, manipulate the frustrated masses, and by increasing the police
and the power of the police they can increase their own power if the police is under the direct control of a government . . .
And especially when that police has a fascist alike power oriented arrogant and
repressive robot mentality . . .
For eventual use of some violence against groups of violent citizens for keeping order, or for groups of criminals to arrest them, a special task police can be used, who under- stands her specific task and her orders, as
well as her individual responsibility.
This is in general a different job from that of a general police. However the more power, the more skill and empathic ability is needed . . .
Prosperity wealth and happiness
Moral understanding and prosperity
In general can be said that the more moral understanding and moral awareness there is in a society, the less corruption, criminality and poverty there will be, and
hence the more prosperity and basic human values can be realized for anybody.
Economics and materialistic values
Economics of western or westernized capitalistic societies of today appears to be a theory of only materialistic values, based on addiction to blind
greed for mostly man- made materialistic wealth and money. However in almost total unawareness of the value of nature and the earth which we are all part of, and ignoring the most basic human values of love (including beauty)
and happiness, and often even ignoring the most basic human value of life itself and human health . . .
All basic human values have become subject to just the primitive psychopathic and narcissistic values of
power, money, and wealth . . .
An economy is said to be only healthy if there is growth; if everybody is getting more and more rich. But then economics is basically a culture of never enough .
And it doesn't move humanity towards its very highest values, and nobody has an idea where it will bring humanity, or when that growth will be accomplished.
Our highest human values can only be realized
by a universal basic moral education which creates more moral understanding and less corruption, criminality and poverty, and more empathy and respect for the freedom and well-being of others, and hence a natural and social way
True economics and true prosperity Thesis
Economics is basically a means to create prosperity; however as suggested, pros- perity has also to include health and
happiness, for only then it can be a realistic and true prosperity.
The experience of happiness has to be seen as the essence of prosperity, for without happiness prosperity cannot be of any value.
And true prosperity has also to include prosperity of nature which we are all part of.
So to realize true prosperity economics has also to include happiness, human health, and the value of nature. And then "economic growth"
will get another meaning . . .
Money and happiness
In a culture of capitalistic extremism money and wealth seem to create the freedom and relax of no money-worry. However at the same time it
also creates the fear and worry not to lose that money, which is also a money-worry . . . And moreover it tends to create narcissism and egocentrism, and all of the misery connected with that . . .
So in the end
money and wealth as such don't create any real happiness in an indi- vidual survival culture.
However a social culture of human-friendliness, empathy and loyalty can create for everybody a basic "worrylessness"
and sense of freedom, and hence also a mental relax, and an opportunity to happiness . . .
Standard of life vs. quality of life
The question can be asked if the quality of life in the sense of general happiness and opportunity to experience peaks of happiness
of e.g. a relatively poor farmer some- where in Bhutan is less than that of some rich bank CEO in a rich western country.
In other words, if standard of life correlates with general happiness or well-being and opportunity
to experience peaks of happiness.
And especially in the sense of ability to experience peaks of happiness the simple farmer could be in advantage, because of his relatively simple life and much lower level of egocentrism,
greed and narcissism . . .
However, only as long as his level of poverty doesn't create misery . . .
Politics and prosperity Thesis
Avoidance of human misery and advancement of human happiness should next to human survival be the most basic objective of all politics in
And as mentioned already before, for a general avoidance of human misery is needed a basic minimum welfare for every human, to avoid frustration, individual survival-men- tality, egocentrism and
society-hostility. And of the same importance is a universal moral education for all.
However also respect of governments for the inner freedom, unconcernedness and
well-being of all citizens is of basic importance
for a truly prosperous society where the highest human values as much as possible can become realized for everybody.
Creation of material prosperity Thesis
The most basic source of material
prosperity is the use of energy sources in connec- tion with mechanization, and today also software and robotics; so in fact the continu- ation of the "industrial revolution".
It should be clear however, that
material prosperity does not come out of just capita- lism or capitalistic extremism, but basically out of the creativity, cooperation, know- ledge and sustainable trade of many individuals, and in a time of no war.
So a basic condition for material prosperity are also the universal moral standards of respect, reliability, freedom, peace and safety.
And also all sustainable trade is based on freedom, peace, trust, respect and
reliability; so also sustainable trade is based on universal moral standards . . .
Positive creativity, a new economic basis Thesis
Needed is an economy no more based on greed, competition and narcissism, but on (collective) positive creativity, realistic idealism, and helpfulness, integrity,
and social justice. People working to create and produce value, and not just to become rich . . . And also no more the parasitical use of money, but to use money to create. And all positive creation creates a
better world for everybody.
This can create an immense global potential of cooperation, trade, creativity and pros- perity. And basically this is just a matter of education and development . . .
such an economy doesn't mean that there will be no more greed, competition and narcissism, but it will no more be the basic structure of societies.
of egocentrism and greed and also low levels of narcissism and psycho- pathy can be seen as natural.
United creativity versus individual greed Thesis
The idea is a basic change from mean greedy egocentric individual survival societies to societies of a social, motivated and creative unity.
And no more propagation of greed as a modern "economic virtue".
Greed is a natural human quality out of our hunter gatherer time, but it needs not to be the basic drive of societies, for as such it is against our social
Human creativity is as much part of our human nature and dates also out of our hunter gatherer time, however it is not against our social empathic and loyal human nature but rather supportive of it . . .
The idea is a new economy, based on creativity, creative cooperation and the universal human values of peace, freedom, well-being and happiness, and not on just the primi- tive psychopathic and narcissistic values of power,
money and wealth . . .
Creativity of working people Thesis
The growth and profit of companies comes out of the creativity, creative cooperation and work of the working people and their
Hence basically extra creativity of working people should not be just a bonus for the owners of companies, but should be separately rewarded from normal work.
Greedy exploitation of working people
means a hostile attitude towards them, and diminishes their motivation and creativity; and any reward as an approval stimulates their sense of self-value, self-esteem, motivation and creativity.
Creative people Thesis
The strikingly creative people are mostly
individuals and individualists who are often, but not always, socially less active people and more focused on mainly their field of creation. And many are also explorers, entrepreneurs, pioneers and boosters of science,
technique, and human development.
However basically almost any kind of profession or work can be seen as creative.
And as mentioned already, creativity should be categorized as a basic, however sen- sitive part of
human intelligence. And also should positive creativity be seen as a basic need or condition for prosperity and well-being of our society.
A morally positive use of money Thesis
As put already before, money should basically only be seen as a
means for exchange of our products of creation or service, and of property; and basically not as a means to make more money. And the intention to merely make money with money should basically be seen as a capitalistic extremist
way of thinking . . .
And a real excess of money should basically only be used as a means of creation.
This, out of the basic human virtues of positive creativity and humane idealism . . . However
also out of our basic human need for self-esteem, self-value, integrity and dignity, and also as an opportunity to give meaning to our life . . .
Making money with money should basically be seen as a negative creative, and
para- sitical use of money . . . And negative creative, because of the injustice of it towards positive creative people . . .
Investment and trade Thesis
Investment in general also means risk, and also trade in general means investment and risk. And investing and trading could basically also be seen as a gambling with own money, and if the business or trade was successful, then
this could also be seen as making money with money. However the risk means, that this gambling could also mean: losing money with money . . .
And risk investment can be seen as positive creative, for it helps
producers. Hence in a moral sense there is basically nothing wrong in a risk investment or trade.
The economic bubble effect Thesis
The capitalistic-extremist greed-obsession by the aim to become rich, instead of an aim to be creative with money
has already often in human history created economic bubble effects, and economic crises.
Because of the greedy obsession to become rich people become sensitive for mani- pulation; and the wishful thinking of the greedy
victims allows egocentric, narcissistic and more or less psychopathic businessmen to cheat and to misuse trust, and to force up prices into an economic bubble.
This can only be seen as an immoral and parasitical way of making money.
And as mentioned, human greed is nothing but natural, however we should be aware
of it, and always be aware of its consequences for others . . .
Forcing up of prices Thesis
In a greed based economy a forcing up of prices out of a monopolistic power position happens on a huge scale, and is basically a similar
misuse of power like cartel for- mation, and inherent to capitalistic extremism.
This forcing up of prices often leads to bankruptcy of existing companies which are bought up then for cheap prices, and money makes
money . . .
It is basically a way to keep the poor poor, and the rich more and more rich.
And in fact it is unlimited greed that corrupts; unlimited greed creates the misuse of power. This forcing up of prices
destabilizes economies and the prosperity and well- being of all humans, and it creates poverty and strengthens egocentrism and individual survival-mentality. Basically it is a parasitical and destructive way of using money and
basically a morally criminal and psychopathic way of using money . . .
Positive creativity and Stock Exchange business Thesis
Stock Exchange business can be parasitical and greed-based, or it can be positive creativity based . . .
Positive creative in the sense of a realistic humane idealism, or in the sense of respect for nature which we are all part of.
If those who have the money would invest their money in a positive creative and a
morally positive way, then this could mean a tremendous positive change of our world of today . . .
Banks and insurance companies Thesis
Basically banks and insurance companies should not be commercial companies, but government-controlled and
guaranteed non-profit institutions or foundations, which can be trusted by any individual, entrepreneur, or company.
They should be limited in size, and be totally free of narcissistic capitalistic extremism
and any aim to make profit and be without any shareholders.
Their only creative productivity is a service to clients; clients who lend their money to them, and clients who borrow the money of the clients who lent.
Hence banks should basically be nothing more than service institutions.
So banks and insurance foundations should not engage in any high risk bubble invest- ments with money of ignorant clients. And if someone chooses to
consciously invest his own money in a high risk investment, the function of a bank should be no more than that of a reliable advisor.
Many or maybe most people are opposed to paying taxes, thinking in terms of
so and so many percent of my income; of my earned money, my property.
And an amount of e.g. 50 or 60 percent taxes seems to be very much then.
However if we look back to the ancient times of our social ancestors,
someone who managed to catch hold of a deer or other big animal would share it with his whole community. And nobody would say: "no more than 50 or 60 percent" or so . . .
We have all learned to think in terms of an
individual survival-mentality, totally unaware of our social human nature.
However as said, paying taxes to a corrupt government in a corrupt egocentric survival society can be seen as a waste of money, and this
shows also the basic need for a universal human morality.
In general poverty in the world is a result of a lack of education; but often also of social
repression, or a result of capitalistic extremism.
In many countries poverty is created by corrupt or repressive governments, or by a bad geographic location.
The poverty problem can only be solved by in
the first place the right politics, and next the right education, and next also by a positive creative mentality and a basic moral understanding of the rich, and their responsibility awareness.
However also empathy,
respect, understanding and loyalty of all people in the world is of basic importance for that solution.
Opportunities for development
As previously explained is our responsibility-awareness
for the quality of our society basically in our own interest.
Because blind uninhibited and boundless greed of those in the position of making a good money and possessing already more than they really need next to
those living in underdevelopment and poverty means in the end misery for all of us.
For it means that we have continuously to live in an egocentric and basically hostile survival-world, and in a continuous
unconscious fear for criminality.
And as such living out of egocentrism and a more or less narcissistic or psychopathic survival-mentality with low empathy, compassion and conscience, and basically in lovelessness, means
also living in a mental poverty without any true happiness.
No enemies, and freedom of fear
For any human regardless rich or poor (!) realization of the highest human values of safety and freedom and love and happiness are only possible in a world of no enemies and freedom of fear . . . Hence the creation of a world of basically no enemies and free- dom of fear is in everybody's interest.
And hence of basic importance is a maximum development of each and every human in moral understanding and human virtues, as well as a maximum development of useful skills and talents, to share prosperity wealth and
Sharing of prosperity by education
As already suggested, the best way of sharing prosperity and well-being for everybody in the world is by the means of development and education.
And this is something fundamentally different from developing a global nanny state in the sense of a rich creative and productive upper class having to support maintain and sustain the poor underdeveloped
The ideal can only be a global society where every individual gets the opportunity to develop and function according his or her highest human potential.
Underdevelopment and isolation
Underdeveloped people are often living isolated
and concentrated in more or less ghet- tos in suburbs of bigger cities. But underdeveloped people cannot function in a developed state, and hence many come to utter frustration, and have become a threat to such a society.
However their underdevelopment and isolation is the outcome of blind egocentrism and an individual survival-culture, and of short-sightedness of gover- ments, and basically of capitalistic extremism.
mentioned already, the very presence of hostile people in a society diminishes the sense of safety and freedom of everybody in that society . . .
Development of the poor
Needed is education to a basic moral understanding, and
education to develop skills, and education to a positive creative mentality to enable to positive creativity, and to creative cooperation and entrepreneurship.
And the fastest and most economic way to realize such
education for the poor and underdeveloped can in the first place be seen in an education containing an education to educate others.
However a new opportunity for development could also be seen in the cheap produc-
tion of modern i-pads or other computers for education and development.
Minimum of wealth
To realize such education, and from the point of view of social justice, in any social society any human should be given the right and opportunity to live
on a minimum of wealth. And in the first place from a social benefit with an obligation to education.
All people of e.g. under fifty or so should be given the possibility of an education for free to a level
of own choice and towards jobs most needed in society, and to gain or regain state-independence.
Education human equivalence and democracy
Underdevelopment in a democratic state also means lack of understanding of politics and hence wrong political choices, which hamper the functioning and
development of that democratic state. Especially in the sense of populism-based parties.
And more developmental equivalence in a society creates more unity, prosperity and peace, and hence more sense of freedom, and
a happier society to live in.
Education for expectant parents
As the basis of all human development starts already in the womb, there is for all expectant parents in the first place need of some basic education about
pregnancy and the importance of the right food and the right behaviour in regard of the develop- ment of their expected baby. And next also a basic education about treatment of babies and the education of small children is of
basic importance for all expectant parents.
In almost all countries in the world a driving licence is required to drive a car, to prevent people from causing accidents; and basically the same logic
could also be applied to the bringing-up of children.
A registered parental education/reproduction certificate could be established as a moral obligation in any civilized state in the world. An education certificate as a
moral obligation towards the society and towards the concerned child, regarding the possible serious or grave consequences of basic educational errors . . .
The global nuclear problem
Nuclear power plants
commercial and greedy exploitation and management of nuclear-power plants all over the world can be seen as part of one of the biggest threats to humanity of today and in the future. Nuclear power plants are physically
vulnerable and vulnerable for mismanagement, corruption, human mistakes, criminality and terrorism.
Humanity has not yet learned enough from the disasters of Chernobyl, Fucoshima and thousands of "accidents" in
nuclear power plants all over the world.
The power of money, technological narcissism and the narcissism and career-orien- tedness of politicians, and underdevelopment of the masses continues the use of this kind of energy.
The global nuclear waste problem
Nuclear waste-storage has to be seen as a huge problem in regard to safety and future safety of humanity in many respects.
And also the costs of nuclear waste storage for future humanity can be gigantic regar- ding the
time-aspect. Hence, nuclear power means cheap energy on costs of our children and future humanity.
Our children and children's children and so forth will have to pay for the purblindness corruptedness and greed of their
ancestors; they are going to be the victims of their egocentrism and narcissism . . .
And even if future thorium / plutonium reactors can use the nuclear waste, the very vul- nerability of the systems remains a
continuous threat to humanity.
The global nuclear waste problem has also to be seen in combination with the current global morality- criminality- and corruption problem, in view of "accidents" with nuclear waste.
Also nuclear submarines and the loss of nuclear submarines and nuclear waste in the global oceans can be seen as a global threat in regard of human sea food and marine ecology.
The global nuclear arms problem
Humanity has nuclear arms enough to
destroy the whole earth surface and all life on earth many times, and of course not to mention humanity itself.
There are nuclear H-bombs on heads of missiles and in nuclear submarines, and there are neutron bombs, and also
the so called dirty bombs which do not need any nuclear technology, just some nuclear waste.
Basically the very existence of these nuclear arms contains the continuous immanent danger to be used one day.
The global nuclear war problem
The global nuclear arms problem is basically a global nuclear war problem.
The simple idea of possible non-nuclear wars with nuclear power nations may be naive in the future, for ultimately a loser has nothing left to
lose; so in the end it's better then to use the nuclear power anyway.
And also the development of the neutron bomb has lowered the threshold of nuclear arms use, and the possibility of a dirty bomb even more.
can be seen as one of the biggest threats to the survival of humanity today and in the near future . . .
The basic nuclear politics problem
The global nuclear war problem has basically to be seen as the global war problem
as such, and is basically nothing but a political
problem. And so can also be seen the global nuclear power- and waste problem.
However the most basic political problem is the problem of the mentality and under- standing of our politicians themselves and all other
people in a position of power . . .
Their petty minded collective narcissistic nationalistic and chauvinistic mentality, and their refusal to think in global perspectives and global responsibility . . .
It may be clear that first a global consensus is needed for a creative cooperation of all people in power and all politicians to solve this global nuclear problem. And the nuclear problem can only be solved in case of a
positive creative and humane idealistic men- tality of all people in power and all politicians in the world . . .
Principles of war
Causes of war
Although from a general and historic perspective can be
said that the basic reason for wars has always been a lack of territory and overpopulation, more in detail also other reasons can be seen..
Such as xenophobia and demonizing of other peoples, and especially the narcissistic
and/or psychopathic mentality of kings, rulers, politicians or religious leaders.
These narcissistic/psychopathic leaders often manipulated their people by means of calumny, demonizing, enemy-conditioning and the
Such leaders used the principle of war to become more powerful themselves, and/or to become admired as great statesmen, who created a big empire . . .
So in fact basically primitive egocentric springs of action and objectives . . .
Not so often in human history two or more states have voluntarily unified to one bigger state without any fight or war.
War and nationalism
Nationalism as a collective
narcissism makes a people very vulnerable for manipula- tion by "talented" narcissistic and (more or less) psychopathic politicians, who tend to manipulate a population to even more chauvinism and narcissism . . .
this happens by creating and suggesting a common enemy . . . This enemy can be among the own population as well as in form of other peoples or states.
War and information
Because of the narcissism and manipulative mentality of
political leaders, war means also a war of information; and as well the enemy as our own population has to be manipulated with lies, demonizing, calumny and deceit.
However it shows a narcissistic, or even more or less
psychopathic mentality, and a basic respectlessness towards one's own population . . . And in the end it may even show to have been a treason of one's own people or country . . . . .
In any war the freedom of speech of
truth is denied, and journalists and media are controlled and suppressed. And anybody collecting true information is supposed to be a traitor or a spy then . . .
And this can be seen as well in democratic states with
a rule of law, as in totalitarian and dictatorial states . . . . .
War and morality
When a demonized enemy gets conquered, morality gets lost by feelings of hate and revenge. And victors often start looting and disowning the losers of their
property and raping their women . . . And in spite of the individual innocence of these victims . . . And all of this, in spite of the initial morality of the victors . . .
This shows that our morality alone is not
enough, and that also a basic self-knowledge and basic knowledge and understanding of human nature is required.
However if there would be enough basic intelligence on a global scale, wars would not beak out in the first
place . . . . .
Domination and imperialism
As suggested already, narcissism of political leaders and collective narcissism of a population are in general the basic drive of imperialism.
And domination and imperialism in general means suppression and/or
exploitation of one people by another, and is sooner or later bound to create enmity, revolution and separation.
So the basic question can be asked of what is the sense of imperialism in the first place . . . History is
full of conquered states and civilizations, and annexations of other states and cultures, which in a later stage revolted and separated again . . .
Imperialism and exploited states
The power of a nation may give its citizens a
sense of safety and superiority, however dominance and misuse of that power creates enemies, and then that sense of safety becomes illusionary. And sense of safety is a condition for peace and sense of free- dom, and also for
stability, and hence also for prosperity . . .
And for an occupied, annexed, colonized or exploited state imperialism inhibits also prosperity and tends to create poverty and misery; and for the imperialist state it is a
continuous potential source of unrest revolt and instability . . .
Also the question can be asked, of what is the advantage of being a citizen of a power- ful imperialistic country, compared to a less powerful or small
country; e.g. of USA, China, or Russia, compared to small countries like e.g. Swiss or Bhutan . . .
Revolutions and separations
Urge to separation of parts of states or peoples is in general caused by the collective narcissistic suppression or exploitation of the population
of these parts .
And on a global scale it can be clearly seen how collective narcissism, chauvinistic nationalism, and superiority delusion causes the suppression and/or exploitation of other peoples and next their
revolt and fight for separation.
Reasons for unification of states
A common enemy or potential enemy can be a reason for a (temporary) unification of states, which however basically cannot last, if there is no cultural and moral
unity . . .
And as explained, war, violence and domination are not the means of creating a lasting empire of unity; but friendship, creative cooperation, a common culture and morality, and a humane idealism can do so . . .
And the only guaranty for a lasting global peace can be offered by a global empire of cooperating, and more and more culturally integrating states . . .
Global federation of cooperating states
To resolve all of the basic global issues, and to realize as much as
possible the very highest universal human values for every human, humanity has to move in the direction of a global unity of intertwined cooperating states.
Cooperation instead of competition
Meant is a global federation of cooperating states, instead of competing states.
And these states have to be careful with collective egocentric or narcissistic nationa- lism, and to be more or less free of capitalistic
Also the so called European Union is based on a "union" of collective egocentric natio- nalistic and chauvinistic states, with a different morality regarding corruption, and based on collective egocentric
Realization based on agreements and common interests
Such a global federation can be realized when in the first place is focussed on agree- ments and common interests, instead of focussing on only selfish
Issues and conflicts have to be solved in the first place mutual, and if that is proble- matic then they can be solved or decided by an independent international global council of states like the
United Nations or a global (all nations) Security Council.
Resolving global issues
Global issues like the nuclear issue and all other global issues like mentioned in the introduction ask for a global solution and cooperation in total trust and
This trust and reliability can only become realized if there is a global culture of univer- sal human morality, and a unity of a global federation of states.
It asks for the basic human virtues of
integrity, loyalty, humane idealism, and intelli- gence, and a unity of interests in peace, creative cooperation, safety, freedom and prosperity.
Universal basic intelligence and morality
So, needed for such a global federation is
one universal basic global morality and one basic global development of human intelligence.
However all states have to be free to maintain their own cultures and religions, as well as complementary values standards
and virtues. And from the point of view of religions some of these universal values, standards and virtues can be seen as complementary.
Global constitution of federal states
A global umbrella constitution of global federal
states can be seen as a legal and moral basis of such a global federation.
And the first basis of such a constitution should be the realization, support, and con- tinuation of the most basic universal human values for
Near future of humanity
Mechanization and robotization Thesis
Increasing mechanization, robotization and computerization and cheap green energy may more and more decrease the need for humans to work.
Finally just computers, machines and robots may be able to do the job.
This could ultimately create for humanity the opportunity and unprecedented freedom to decide and guide consciously her own future development and
For a choice of direction of future human development is however of basic importance to be aware of our very highest human values, and of our needed human virtues, and to fully understand our human
nature . . .
Future power of computers and robots Thesis
Important to understand is also the importance of human power-control on computers, robots and computer-controlled devices.
Computers and robots can
become no more than servants of humans, in the sense of serving robots, information sources, advisors of humans, steering devices, or tools to work with.
Computers can never be given any authority, for they are not able
to bear responsi- bility, nor are they able of human empathy, and hence they have no conscience . . . This, because computers have no feelings, and most importantly, they have no human true identity or ego-less identity . . . .
. And hence they have no sense or experience of human connectedness. And hence computers are also unable to understand humans, and unable to a true and authentic human respect.
Because all of this, computers should
always be designed and programmed according universal human morality, and only be used according universal human morality.
Responsibility for robots and computers Thesis
Self-learning independently operating computers robots and
computerized devices should basically not be allowed to make independent or uncontrolled decisions over humans and human life for the mentioned reason of inability to bear responsibility.
Responsible are always the
owner, seller, and even the producer and designer of such an independently operating robot or device.
A producer of a conventional weapon can still put the responsibility of the use of the weapon on the owner
and/or user of it; however if it is about an unpredictable indepen- dently operating device, also the designer, producer and seller of it carry an existential and moral responsibility, which should also be translated into a
legal responsibility . . .
Computers and human freedom Thesis
Basically computers robotics and mechanization can ultimately solve all human problems, and create the possibility for all humans to live in a
problemless inner free- dom and mental well-being, if they will be designed programmed and used for that.
This would create an unprecedented opportunity for humans to realize their very highest human values of happiness,
love, peace, freedom and intelligence, and to realize their evolutionary destiny . . .
Human eugenics and responsibility Thesis
The very idea of eugenics supposes the knowledge of what are the better people and the worse. For better, in what respect? Intelligence, ability to
experience love and happiness, physical health, physical beauty, immunity, or all of these qualities . . .
And better, in the sense of more, or of a higher level, or of durability etc . . .
However the question also arises of human adaptability to ecological circumstances; and also to certain new, or far future environmental circumstances . . .
A gene pool of all known and unknown human
qualities seems to be of basic impor- tance for the future of all of humanity, because a loss of genetic diversity may one day in a far, or very far away future become fatal to humanity.
And from this can be
understood that eugenics by human GM can make us basically and directly responsible for ultimately the future-quality and ultimate destiny of entire humanity . . . . .
Because of that huge responsibility liberal eugenics and freedom of GM
can be questioned. And governmental control, documentation and registration will be needed to correct eventual mistakes in the future. In some countries is already some legal state control applied.
Humane GM against dysgenics or genetic deterioration is in fact practised already.
Prenatal diagnosis and also pre-implantation genetic diagnoses PGD, are performed in many hospitals world-wide today. And this development
means basically a new human eugenics already.
However the global liberalism in eugenics of today means that some unknown random individuals are basically engaged in deciding about the evolutionary
development and ultimate future quality and destiny of entire humanity . . . . .
Global control on eugenics Thesis
The developments in medical science forces us to think in a direction of a global control on humane GM and
This in the first place by a global agreement of the United Nations on DNA registration of every individual in the world who dies, in any country. In this way the privacy problem could be avoided.
Eventual GM-mistakes could in the future be traced back then, and handled according the state of science of that time.
Human GM, a right or a crime Thesis
From one point of view it cannot be a crime to manipulate human genes against genetic deterioration of humans . And from the same point of view it can be seen as
a right of any individual to obtain the best possible chances for life from his or her parents. And this means then GM included.
From another point of view it cannot be a crime to continue the existing gene pool of
humanity, whatever genes are involved. However from the moment we are aware of existing "bad genes" this can be questioned . . .
However any irreversible negative effect of human GM on the very highest quality of
humanity of the future has basically to be seen as the very biggest crime against humanity in human history, for it is in evolutionary sense against a far superior kind
of humans in the future . . . . .
Hence the importance of global collection of all existing human DNA.
Knowledge of our bad genes Thesis
The right to pass on, and spread one's proven "bad" genes can also be questioned.
a certain gene that increases the chance of getting cancer in our world of today may have had an evolutionary function we do not know about in the past, and become of immense value for humanity of the future. e.g. we can think
of future diffe- rent life circumstances, like forced intermittent fasting by food scarcity, which tends to inhibit the development of cancer.
So basically before starting eugenic GM on humans we should first
know all functions of human genes and gene combinations, which however may take still some time.
And as said, basically all possible DNA of people should be stored and kept safe before any serious human eugenic GM
Parental reproduction certificate
To prevent pathological psychopaths, narcissists, criminals and other immoral people from creating more antisocial people in the world, a registered parental reproduction certificate as mentioned could be established as a
A certificate, also based on suitable life circumstances, a morally positive identity, and a suitable mentality and knowledge to educate children to a morally positive identity and mentality; and this for both of the parents.
Such a certificate could also be denied then to people with a genetic predisposition for psychopathy with a semi-psychopathic mentality or worse, and eventually also to people with a genetic predisposition for degenerative
And this can basically be seen as a mild form of preventive eugenics and as an edu- cationally based eugenics.
Eugenics and forced euthanasia
In the past also forced euthanasia has been included in
eugenics, and it was suppor- ted by many people; and not only in Hitler times in Germany, but also long before that time in the UK, USA, and many other places in the world.
It may be clear however that eugenic euthanasia
has always been propagated by the most psychopathic and narcissistic people of societies. Propagated, by demonizing the unwanted people, to suppress natural human empathy . . .
And this can be seen as a core-aspect of Hitler-eugenics in world-war ll in Germany.
Eugenics in agriculture and ecology
(Non-GM) eugenics in agriculture has been applied already for thousands of years by humans to grow the "best" quality of agricultural products; but of which
the word "best" in respect of ecology and human health can be questioned.
Questioned, because the selected and cultivated species can often no more resist current ecological circumstances; hence the huge need for all kinds
of insecticides fungicides and herbicides etc. Many "eugenized" species have lost their natural resistance against bacteria, fungi, viruses or insects.
And further agricultural eugenics like greed-based agricultural
GM may have made things even worse . . .
So let's be careful and not make the same mistake with eugenic GM of humans . . .
Epigenetical agricultural eugenics
Agricultural eugenics of the past has always been
greed-based, on biggest crops and most economic products. New agricultural eugenics in eco-farming is based on syste- matic selection of most resistant species against plagues; in fact an epigenetic prin- ciple without changing
any genes, merely switching on or off genes. And this cannot be seen as GM, and is not destructive or harmful to the evolutionary developed and designed original ecosystem.
Technocentric future thinking
Technocentrism means a way
of thinking in absolute faith in technology and industry and in a firm belief that humans have to be in total control over nature, and it presumes human ability to solve all future human problems with just technology.
However technocentrism is a confined and tunnel vision way of thinking; totally un- aware of its confined point of view and in neglect of our confined human knowledge and our confined understanding of nature, and of our
human nature, and hence it is basically a wrong way of thinking . . .
And technocentric thinking tends to ignore and disrespect evolution and ecology of nature and to scientific arrogance and human
narcissism . . .
Ecocentric future thinking
An ecocentric way of future thinking
is based on the awareness of man being part of nature and being dependent on nature, and even in the end subjected to nature; how- ever also on man being partly in respectful control of nature . . .
Here nature should be respected for its processes, products, and secrets, and basi- cally only respectful and low-impact technology should be applied.
So technology in service of humanity, but only in harmony with nature and ecology.
However this does not totally rule out some future technological singularity.
Future intelligence and IQ
As mentioned before, nobody can be called intelligent if he or she is not aware of the most basic aspects of his or her life and
human life in general.
Without this basic intelligence our intelligence has no foundation and no direction.
And if someone doesn't understand the basics of his or her human nature, or if he or she is not aware of his or
her very highest values, or if he or she doesn't understand the meaning of his or her life, all other intelligence has very little value.
Basic intelligence includes basic knowledge basic understanding basic self-know-
ledge and social and moral understanding.
So all future IQ tests should also include basic intelligence in general and also our social and moral intelligence.
Future class-society and morality
If in the near future
humanity is going to move more and more towards a global capita- listic class society then this is basically against our universal social human nature and universal human morality.
This because such a class-society ignores
the most basic human values of respect, justice, safety, freedom, peace, love and happiness, and ultimately even of life itself.
And its very concept is based on parasitism, and it is against our evolutionary esta- blished
basic human virtues of empathy, human-friendliness and integrity, and against loyalty, realism and humane idealism.
No option for a class-society
Basically all humans have no other choice than to adjust to their evolutionary deve- loped and genetically established social roots; and hence there is
basically no option for a class-society.
A class-society is a divided society, a society without social unity, and basically a society with a threatened and diminished safety, peace and freedom . . .
and hence also a diminished potential to live in happiness . . . So basically a class-society pre- vents all of her citizens from the experience of their very highest human values . . . And hence we humans have to learn to think in terms of one Humanity . . .
A class-society is conflicting with our evolutionary and genetically established social human nature and can lead humanity only to more and more narcissism and egocen- trism, and to less empathy and more and more
psychopathy and all of the misery connected with that . . .
Average psychopathic level
Because of a lacking love and empathy basically all psychopaths are people living in (an unconscious) misery, and
all psychopaths create misery for others; and more or less the same can be said about all narcissists.
And compared to all of our ancestors of before some ten thousand years ago, who in millions of years of evolution
developed our social human nature, almost all humans living in our modern huge anonymous societies of today are living in a more or less narcissistic and/or psychopathic mentality . . .
And the higher the average
psychopathic or narcissistic level of a society, the higher the respectlessness and level of misery in that society; and regardless rich or poor . . .
Ultimate psychopathic society
Ultimately in a theoretical totally
criminal psychopathic society everybody is human- hostile and everybody's enemy; and in the end there will be only killing and killing, until finally only one individual will be left over . . .
And as nobody wants
to live in a psychopathic society (even not psychopaths), man has only one choice; and that is, to move towards a morally positive empathetic men- tality and a natural morally positive empathetic identity . . . . .
Future, empathy and respect Thesis:
The average psychopathic/narcissistic level and
average empathetic level of a society may become the most important issues of humanity in the future.
When the average psychopathic/narcissistic level of a society gets lower and the average empathic level gets
higher, the first effect will be more respect, and respect for the freedom and well-being of others; and hence also an increase in tolerance, freedom and happiness in that society . . .
Educational cultural eugenics
From an evolutionary point of
view all human narcissism can be seen as basically a social disorder, and (non-criminal) psychopathy as a more or less original male, (or also female) dominant testosterone mentality, which is however in almost all positions of
power undesirable. And for a socially positive or acceptable functioning every human should be provided with a genuine social conditioning and education.
A general non-narcissistic and empathic social conditioning and
education of basic intelligence can also be seen as an educational cultural eugenics.
However a eugenics, without any irreversible effects on future humanity . . .
Self-value, the basis of a positive creative culture Thesis
As arrogance and fake self-esteem out of possessions, power, or
fame can be seen as the fake "backbone" of a narcissistic individual survival-society, it must be possible to change that more and more extreme capitalistic global culture towards a more mode- rated or social capitalism. This,
by the propagation and education of a true and realis- tic sense of self-value out of positive creativity and our value for others and humanity.
This must be possible, for need for self-esteem is also the driving
force in the globally spreading narcissism in prosperity and wealth . . . . .
Basically it must be possible to create a cultural change by a change from a fake self- esteem to a true and realistic self-value and
sense of one's own dignity. The issue is then no more what we have, or how high or important we are, but the issue will be our positive creativity in the perspective of humane idealism and a better world to live in.
then a morally based self-value, self-esteem and sense of one's own dignity can become the backbone of a global and true culture of positive creativity, creative coope- ration, prosperity and humane idealism.
Our human brains
Neuroscience and innate brain quality
Neuroscience tends to see our pre-native brain development as largely decisive for our entire life. And in the view of some basic aspects this seems to
be very plausible, as brain size, basics of character, temperament, talents and impulse control etc. are concerned.
And for certain there also will be genetic aspects involved. The genetic effects on the human brain
development probably can be compared with the genetic effects on the physical human body. In detail everybody is different, but in basics everybody is the same.
Brain-development and diet
There is some scientific evidence that the development and quality of the brains of
new-born babies has been determined by the amount and quality of the food the mother has eaten during her pregnancy. And also the health,
immunity and longevity of life seem to be determined by it.
Regarding the quality of food should also be understood that ecologically grown food (organic food) contains average some 40% more vitamins minerals
and trace-elements according a huge European trial.
And throughout human evolution he only food available to humans has been eco-food; and from this can be understood that our entire human organism, including our
brains is evolutionary based and conditioned to thrive on that quality of food . . .
Well-being of pregnant women Thesis
As the brain development of every human is highly dependent on the physical and mental well-being of his or her mother during the time of
pregnancy it is also a com- mon human interest and hence also of global importance that all pregnant women in the world are supplied with the right amount of healthy food, and healthy life circum- stances.
Brain development and maturity Thesis
In the same way as our human body, our human brain development
doesn't end at the moment of our birth. Modern neuroscience tells us that our brains develop to maturity until about the age of 24 or so; similar to our human body.
The last brain development in adolescents seems to
be their ability to impulse control, and especially in regard of their high levels of testosterone, which explains why so many youngsters tend to overreact. And also many tend to become easily addicted to smoking, drinking,
drugs and computer-games etc.
But this late maturity of the brains of adolescents raises also questions about their legal age of maturity . . .
If neuroscience is right, the answer can only be:
basically no legal human maturity before 24 . . . and in democratic states no voting right before 24 . . . . .
Plasticity of the human brain Thesis
Also after maturity of our brains conditioning and information-supply to our brains continues over our entire life; and because of the
plasticity of our brains our brains also continue to change our entire life . . .
The more we use our brain in a specific way, the more it tends to function in that way; the more it becomes programmed or
conditioned to function in that way.
Comparable to muscle training our brain becomes trained to perform.
And also similar to our muscles, our brain stays adaptive and flexible according to its use all our
However from this can also be understood that humans are basically able to change their mentality throughout their entire lives . . . . . (!)
Frustration misery and addiction Thesis
Addiction is basically a conditioning of the brain by
means of its plasticity. A con- ditioning to create a feeling of well-being. And this means that basically anything that gives pleasure to humans can become an addiction.
And hence also, the more frustration and
misery we experience in our lives the more sensitive we become to addiction, because it means an absence of well-being and happiness.
However also, the more egocentric and loveless our life, the bigger our chance to become
addicted to something; for egocentricity prevents us from the experience of love, beauty and happiness . . .
But of course there may be also other reasons like accidents or illnesses etc. why we feel frustrated and
miserable and become sensitive to addiction.
Psychpaths and addiction Thesis
Some basic aspects of psychopathy are a very strong egocentrism and callousness, and hence also a blocked ability to
experience love, beauty and happiness.
And this explains also why psychopaths have such a strong draw towards rewards and a lack of impulse control, and why they are so sensitive to addiction.
They try to compensate for the lack of love and happiness.
And so also anybody with a more or less psychopathic mentality will also more or less experience that sensitivity to addiction . . .
social, empathetic, mature and happy people are less sensitive to addiction and in general don't feel attracted to addictive drugs etc. . . .
Addiction and impulse control
As suggested, if out of egocentrism or any other reason
there is a lack of love and happiness in our life, desires come up in us to compensate for that need. And the stronger these desires or impulses for compensation become, the more difficult it becomes to control our
behaviour. And also, the more we are used (or brain trained)
to compensate by experience of pleasure, relaxation, reward, or a suggestion of con- solation, the more difficult it becomes to control our impulses, and
the stronger our addictions become.
Especially young people with an immature brain could be extra sensitive to addiction because their lack of ability to control their impulses.
Becoming addicted is in general an unconscious process.
Once one has become aware of an addiction it has happened already to a certain level. And next, continuing the addictive behaviour strengthens the addiction.
As said, basically anything that gives us an experience of
pleasure relax or relief can become addictive. So there may be many (eventually slight) addictions we are not aware of. For example sweets, or sweet food addiction, or food addiction as such, or a shopping addiction, beautiful
car addiction, making money, or gambling addiction etc. These addictions give us a temporary feeling of relief from our misery, for they stimu- late the reward system in our brain, but they are often not identified as
The global drugs problem Thesis
It's important to understand that the so called "drugs problem" in the world is basically an addiction problem. The problem is not the alcohol or drug as such,
but the reason why people tend to get addicted to them.
And it can be observed in oneself or in other people that in general an unsatisfactory, miserable or unhappy life is the basic cause of addiction.
only solution for the global "drugs problem" can be found in a world with less egocentrism, survival-mentality and psychopathic mentality, which creates less hostility, tensions, stress, problems, anxiety and other misery for
And for this is needed a social global culture of human-friendliness, empathy and loyalty and a natural positive creative mentality.
Addiction love and happiness Thesis
It can also be observed that the more love and
happiness are lacking in our life, the more we are miserable, and the more we are in frustration, depression or anxiety, etc.; which however can also become a trained conditioning in our brains, just as an addiction . . .
And so, the longer we live in a lack of love and happiness, the more we "train" our brains, and the more sensitive we will become to all kinds of addictions.
And hence only love and happiness can
protect us from addiction, and basically love and happiness are also needed to free us from addictions . . . . .
Well-being for every human Thesis
So the only solution for the global human addiction problem and all the misery and criminality connected with it is basically a
natural social and global culture to create well-being and a social environment where love and happiness can flourish for every human.
And for those addicted already rehabilitation-therapy can easily be successful then.
In such a society maybe even certain benign drugs like psylocibin-mushrooms could be legalized, for they are reported to be beneficial to many users, and also harmless
in a controlled environment, and they are also reported to be almost non-addictive.
Basics of religion
Basics of belief and religion Thesis
All organized religions
in the world as well as most individual religious concepts are ultimately based on assumptions and belief; even Buddhism and atheism.
And belief simply means that we do not know . . . . . If we would know, belief
would not be needed . . . . .
This can be seen as the most fundamental aspect of all religions in the world.
However also as the most ignored aspect by many religions in the world . . .
And all religious
extremism and fanaticism in the world is based on pretending to know; so basically only on stupidity, or lack of integrity and truth . . . . .
A truly religious believer can only be extremely modest; one merely believes, which means that one doesn't know . . . In the end we can only hope that our
religious belief contains some truth . . .
So all religious fanaticism in the world is based on just arrogance and egocentrism; however arrogance and egocentrism are according to all religions anti-religious . . . . .
Belonging to a certain religion creates also an identity according to that religion.
And for many it creates the common ego to be better people than people of other religions or atheists . . .
For only our religion is the true religion . . .
Knowledge of other religions
In general believers of all the organized big religions in the world have hardly any knowledge of the basics of other religions.
And very few people in the world have consciously chosen for a particular religion.
Also most religious believers are not aware of the objective basics of their own religion compared to the objective basics of other religions . . .
Belief and truth
As mentioned already
before, ultimately all human knowledge is belief. However belief based on scientific evidence, or on our own observation, or based on assertions of other people or the beliefs of other people.
And in general can
also be said that we only trust information if we believe that this information is really true.
And here also the question can arise if our religion is really based on truth, or on just the belief of others, or
on the beliefs, imaginations or delusions of some unknown and primitive people of an ancient past . . . . .
Choice for truth Thesis
Our choice for truth is directly connected with our veracity and being true . . .
And even when we are aware of the fact that all namable truth is always a relative
truth, just depending on our point of view.
choice for truth is part of our human intelligence and integrity, and also of our religious integrity and part of our own truth . . . . .
Freedom of religion and search for truth Thesis
The very basis of freedom of religion is the freedom and the right to search for truth. However this also includes our freedom to search for truth in the religion we are born in
And this also means a freedom of interpretation of the religion we are born in . . . . .
Freedom of interpretation of religion Thesis
Our religion can be based on our own individual interpretation, understanding and choice for truth, or on a blindly following
of the interpretation of others, or on a blindly following of the teachings of some religious believers of the past.
And not all religions (or religious sects) give their members the freedom of their own individual interpretation or vision on their religion . . . So not all religions allow their members to search for the truth . . .
However strange enough that such sects and all of the big religions are focused on our individual responsibility towards God, Allah, or reincarnation . . .
But if we are individually responsible for all
of our acts, then we must also be indivi- dually responsible for the interpretation of our religion . . . . .
A universal religious given Thesis
In the Christian faith the only gospel of a direct disciple of Jesus Christ is the gospel
of John. His statement: "God is love, and he that dwelleth
in love dwelleth in God, and God in him" states the basic nature of the Christian God.
And a similarity can be seen in the most frequent statement of the Koran: "Allah the Compassionate", "the Merciful", for the
essence of compassion is love. And hence anybody acting uncompassionate or ruthlessly in this world can be seen as acting against the basic nature of Allah . . . . .
And Hinduism and Buddhism know the path of love
and compassion, which leads to the to experience of oneness with the Ultimate Reality, or Ultimate Truth, which has been described as oneness with an indescribable ocean of love and bliss. So also here the basic nature of the
Ultimate Reality can be seen as love and compassion.
And hence also any Hindu, Buddhist, Christian or Muslim who acts violently, acts against the basics of his own faith . . . . .
Some basic religious interpretations Thesis
Any Christian has the basic
individual freedom to search for truth and e.g. to interpret in his religion the divine trinity as non-existent, or as just different manifestations of one God of love; for Jesus has never mentioned any trinity. And he also
never claimed to be "the only begotten Son of God". He just saw God as his Father, or Origin.
And any Muslim who thinks of a jihad of violence against non-Muslims can compare this with the basic loving nature of Allah, as
"the Compassionate" and "the Merciful", and can choose for a non-violent jihad, and to stay in harmony with Allah.
And also all Hindus and Buddhists can compare the importance of their belief in many Gods, Deities,
authorities, or their discipline, with the path of love and compassion.
Awareness of religious basics, contradictions and possible errors can create a basic religious modesty in any true man. And this religious modesty
can only bring a truly religious person to a very careful interpretation of his or her religion.
And any religious teacher or religious individual not allowing others a total religious freedom of interpretation
has basically to be seen as lacking religious modesty, and also lacking religious integrity and truth . . . . .
Authority of religious teachers
A question can be asked about the authority of our religious teachers and leaders like preachers, imams, rabbis, pundits etc. What is the true basis of
their teachings . . .
Often has to be said that in the end this was just the belief of others . . . And a basic reason of this can be seen in our social human nature by which humans tend to trust and believe others . . .
However history has also seen egocentric and narcissistic religious teachers who felt attracted to power and who needed many believers. And their teachings often con- tained manipulations towards a collective egocentrism, and often they were aimed to create fanatics and extremists to become more powerful.
Religious fanaticism, the opposite of religious modesty . . . the opposite of truth . . .
And so we can also ask ourselves what do we know about the narcissistic or psycho- pathic level of our religious teachers .
. . . .
Religious extremism means in general an arrogant fanatic conviction of the superiority of one's own religion and to translate that religion in an extreme way.
However all religious fanaticism comes out of a lack
of understanding the very basics of belief and religion and an arrogant conviction. And arrogance is according all of the biggest religions the most basic trait of the devil . . . . .
So any religious man should
basically be extremely careful with all religious extremist interpretations of his or her faith . . . . .
And mostly egocentric religious fanatics create other egocentric religious fanatics,
and in general
out of frustrated egocentric people, or people with a low self-esteem, or young people with still little education and understanding, or socially disconnected people.
Causes of religious extremism Thesis
The main causes of
religious extremism have nothing to do with religion as such, but in general with an egocentric or more or less narcissistic mentality. People in search of power, attention, admiration and self-esteem want to be higher and more
religious than other religious people. Hence religious extremists always tend to condemn others for being not enough religious . . .
This makes them higher and gives them authority, and authority means power;
typical the desire of narcissists and psychopaths . . .
Basically all religious extremists are out of their nature against freedom of religion. Often religious extremism and fanaticism can also be seen as
a consequence of dis- crimination (low self-esteem) and seclusion, and of marginalization in secular and materialistic societies, and in general also of underdevelopment.
Freedom of religion Thesis
In a society with freedom of religion, freedom of religion cannot mean constraining
in any way the freedom of others; and also not constraining the freedom of religion
of her own members.
And also it cannot mean the freedom to demonize others, or other religions . . .
Any religion in a society with freedom of religion which doesn't respect the freedom, and the freedom of religion of others is basically
hostile to that society . . . . .
And any religion in such a society that doesn't teach freedom of religion and the basics of belief and religion as mentioned here, is basically against freedom of
religion, and hence also hostile to that society . . . . .
Religious education to fanaticism Thesis
Nobody in the world has the right to create fanatics in religion, for it is based on ego- centric and respectless anti-religious arrogance, one-sided information,
extreme col- lective egocentrism, and often on demonizing of other people or religions.
No religious extremist will teach the basics of belief and religion, for it prevents religi- ous fanaticism and extremism . . .
Basically the teaching of religious fanaticism is human-hostile; as well towards the religious adepts, as to other religions or other people . . . . .
Throughout human history it has only lead to violence
and war, and in that view it should basically be seen as a crime . . .
Religious, agnostic or atheistic Thesis
In a general sense people can be categorized as: religious people, and religious convinced people, and as atheistic
people, and atheistic convinced people, and as agnostic people.
The most true are the open agnostics, the modest religious, and the modest atheists, for they understand that a belief is not knowledge, and their aim
is basically the truth.
And the least true are the convinced and fanatics, regardless atheistic or religious, for they claim to know the truth . . .
But true can also be a "faithful" agnostic, who understands
that in the end he knows nothing, but in spite of that he or she trusts the incomprehensible Nature of existence, or, who hopes for some positive Ultimate Reality . . .
Prevention of religious extremism Thesis
A basic teaching of all religions in the world should be
a teaching of the basics of belief and religion as mentioned here, if a religion claims to be true . . .
And any true religious teacher cannot have a problem with that if his or her teaching is based in integrity and truth
. . .
Only the teaching of the basics of belief and religion can create a religious modesty, and prevent all religious people from fanaticism and extremism . . .
However, almost as important as this
teaching are psychological tests on basic intelli- gence, universal moral awareness and identity, and on narcissistic and psychopathic levels of all religious teachers in the world . . . . .
Discrimination and demonizing
Basically discrimination has to be seen as a natural phenomenon;
the natural out- come of our ability to judge and distinguish.
And discrimination between people is what everybody does; just think of something like a partner choice. Can discrimination on race, culture, religion or sexual
orientation for a partner-choice be wrong . . . ?
Prohibition of discrimination by law is understandable, however almost useless.
Demonizing and generalization
Demonizing is a much worse problem. Demonizing comes in
general out of anger caused by a negative experience with someone, and if that is with someone of another group, culture or colour etc., then mostly follows a generalization out of fear . . . and in communication with
others a general negative discrimination can get created.
However a demonizing can also come out of xenophobia, lack of empathy and under- standing, accumulated frustration and anger, and out of egocentrism or narcissism.
(we can think here also of judicial and government officials, and of a police, and of all other people in a position of power . . . )
Generalization and prejudice
If we don't know a certain group of people and we have
negative experiences with some of them, it seems logic that more of them could behave in the same way.
So generalization out of fear can be seen as a natural and more or less logic pheno- menon, which however can easily
create a demonizing and discrimination.
Generalization creates a generalized prejudice on individuals, however, to whom basically always should be given the benefit of doubt . . .
this is a matter of our basic human virtues of realism, intelligence, and integrity, and especially of our empathy and loyalty . . .
Respectful or respectless discrimination Thesis
Basically the issue is not whether
discrimination or not; but respect, or respectless- ness. And prejudice, or no prejudice.
Our human respect makes it very difficult to demonize, and also difficult to generalize.
However lack of information and often also hurry, can force us to generalize.
And demonizing and generalization are a basis of negative discrimination, as well as wrong negative prejudices.
However, wrong negative prejudices can often be prevented by the right education.
Conscious negative discrimination
Negative discriminative acts, behaviour, or decisions on race, culture or religion etc.
will often feel as a humiliation, or as a hostile approach, which is often for an egocen- tric or narcissistic individual with a
lacking empathy totally unnoticed.
Conscious respectless negative discrimination has to be seen as an act or behaviour against the basic human virtues of human-friendliness, empathy, loyalty, intelligence, and
humane idealism, and it inhibits cultural integration and peace, and hence basi- cally also unity of humanity.
Demonizing and mental state Thesis
In a state of anger or frustration we tend to become egocentric and respectless; and hence we tend to demonize others; and yes, even other things . . .
So, if time
available, it is always important to first cool down a little before judging someone. However, judging people as such is natural, and in that way "discriminating" them is also natural.
But what about all these many people
among us who live constantly in a more or less negative state of anger, frustration and egocentrism ?
Here is the core of the problem; and if that problem can be diminished, respect can come back, and discrimination is
no more such an issue . . .
The cross-race problem
The tendency of people to be more familiar with a face of the same race compared to members of another race can be seen as "hard wired" in our human brains.
However it can also be seen that basically that "hard wiring" consists of a conditioning of our brains with images of people with certain racial characteristics, because people who got raised with friends of a different race do
not have cross-race problems with those friends . . .
And although it cannot be denied that humans basically appear to be more empathic with people of their own race than with people of another race, our empathy is
also highly dependent on our prejudices; and also can be seen that negative discrimination is basically more cultural and developmental than racial . . .
However also xenophobia and (collective) narcissism can play an important role.
Cross-race discrimination can basically be seen as caused by a lack of education and integration, and is in the first place a matter of class,
culture and development . . .
Wrong negative prejudices Thesis
Wrong negative prejudices in general exist because of a wrong education, or lack of education.
Homosexuality is unnatural, men are superior to women, my race
is superior to an- other, my culture is superior to another, my religion is superior to another.
Egocentric chauvinism or collective egocentric chauvinism or narcissism is in general the core of this problem. Egocentrism
creates arrogance and respectlesness . . .
Narcissism and negative discrimination
As already mentioned, also (individual or collective) narcissism and arrogance can be seen as a very important source of negative discrimination. The more
narcissism and arrogance, the less empathy and respect, and the more contempt and demonizing of others, and the more negative discrimination will be seen . . .
Discrimination of homosexual people
Demonizing of homosexual people happens mostly by
young men with a lack of sex education, and unawareness of the innate nature of homosexuality.
Heterosexual young men can out of their heterosexuality feel utterly disgusted by the very idea of homosexuality. Hence
they see it as something totally wrong, but also strange, and abnormal. And anything abnormal can be a challenge to them; especially in the view of their immature brains and lack of impulse control.
And when demonizing others, then they suggest themselves to be the good guys . . .
But also there can be a bullying of homosexuals out of the same reasons as all other bullying, a misuse of power against the
Discrimination of underdeveloped people
Here it is about discrimination on schooling and development.
People who show lack of understanding or knowledge, are in general soon being seen as a
stupid, or lower kind of people; and they easily get disrespected and negatively discriminated, regardless their culture, colour, sexuality or religion.
Our tendency to discriminate people with a lower development may
come out of the difficulty to communicate, but also much depends on the basic intelligence of the other, and especially in the sense of respect, integrity, reliability and modesty . . .
And also is
important here to understand that our own development is not as much an achievement of ourselves, as it is a gift of the society we are part of . . .
Fitting and unfitting people
Fitting in jobs or in representative positions or
culturally defined situations or not is not always a matter of negative discrimination.
There may be not fitting cultural differences, or differences in behaviour or personal presentation or appearance of people
Being able to behave according the rules and habits of a certain culture is a matter of respect, and negative discrimination can often be avoided.
Discrimination of miserable people
By nature people don't like miserable people,
and in general humans feel by nature attracted towards happy people.
The reason may be that happy people are in general not offensive, and we may be in desire for that same happiness, and all what is connected with
However by contacting miserable people we may come in touch with their misery . . .
So it seems better to ignore them, and keep them far away from us . . .
Behaviour and misery
Many people will agree that it is better to
meet a happy, positive, well educated and respectful person of a totally different race, religion or culture, than a frustrated mise- rable or respectless person of our own race or culture.
And also important to
understand is, that demonized and discriminated people often feel miserable and frustrated, and then they easily can also become disrespectful or hostile to the society they live in. This mental state is not only expressed in
behaviour, but also in body-language; which causes distance and antipathy in others . . .
This understanding is of basic importance for those who demonize, as well as for all demonized and discriminated people
in the world.
Negative discrimination out of fear
Much discrimination can be seen of black, or other specific race people, in general living in ghettos or suburbs, and in underdevelopment, poverty,
misery and criminality. However, this kind of negative discrimination can also be seen as discrimination out of fear . . .
And seeing the reality of this can make us aware of our common interest in the
development of all people in our society and in the world as a whole . . .
Demonizing of bad people
Often people who see themselves as morally positive, look at immoral, criminal, and misbehaving people in general as the "bad" people.
And in general we disapprove, and tend to condemn and damn these bad people, out of indignation, frustration or anger. And this condemning and damning of the bad people basically means a demonizing of them.
this demonizing of the "bad" people who are basically merely mis-educated, under- developed or derailed people, has to be seen as basically wrong, for it contains a dam- ning of them . . . And the demonizing and damning
of other people is against the basic moral standards of respect and justice, and against the basic moral virtues of empathy, integrity, realism, and human-friendliness . . .
Hence, the demonizing of misbehaving,
immoral or "bad" people should basically be seen as immoral . . . . .
Demonizing and cruelty Thesis
Demonizing of other cultures or religions has created much cruelty and misery in the world. For with demonized people we cannot
feel empathy . . .
And if in a situation of conflict, or when people are in a state of frustration, anger or hatred, there is bound to be much egocentrism, demonizing and lack or absence of empathy. This absence of
empathy makes it possible for people to commit crimes of excessive cruelty and injustice . . .
Religions and demonizing Thesis
Almost all rigged dogmatic religions in the world tend to more or less condemn or demonize people of other religions and/or atheistic
or agnostic people.
And the others are a worse, lower, or even bad kind of people, who will not enter Para- dise. And also some atheists see religious people as insane, retarded, or as an under- developed kind of
This at first subtle demonizing can however in times of tensions or conflict easily change into a total demonization of groups of people. And the lack of empathy the demonizing has created then, opens the door
to violence crimes and cruelty . . .
Demonizing in fascism and war
One of the principles of fascism is demonizing for mistreating and elimination of other cultures. In fact an intentional systematic calumny against another
culture on purpose of destruction. And in fact systematic calumny and demonizing to justify the mis- treating and destruction . . .
And the same happens still today in all kinds of wars and civil wars on many
places in the world . . . The enemy has to be demonized, otherwise others will understand our unjust, offensive and power-based intentions . . . But of course we can also demonize an enemy with really evil plans.
However, as soon as we hear of evil people we should in the first place better be care- ful, for mostly it's about underdeveloped or uneducated people.
Demonizing and collective narcissism
Next to lack of development and education,
chauvinism and collective narcissism often can be observed in racial and cultural demonizing and discrimination.
Demonizing others to suggest superiority of ourselves . . .
We can think of religious
collective narcissism, cultural collective narcissism, national collective narcissism and racial collective narcissism.
A cultural, national, and racial collective narcissism could also be observed in nazi Germany in
and before world war ll, as well as the consequences of it.
And the more narcissism in a society, the more demonizing and negative discrimi- nation there will be . . .
Negative discrimination, a way of oppression
Negative discrimination out of
demonizing and generalizing has also to be seen as a way of oppression, and it creates a class society, poverty, frustration, anger, crimi- nality and misery. And this in return creates more demonizing, generalizing and nega-
tive discrimination. So more or less a vicious cycle . . .
And this can be seen as a basic mechanism, creating more and more collective and individual narcissism and class society, and the mentioned misery for
everybody . . .
Basic education for children
Conditioning behaviour of parents
As mentioned already before, for all parents is important to see that all of their beha- viour has a conditioning effect on un-borns, new-borns and all
Very small baby's get already programmed by the emotional behaviour of the parents even still in the prenatal stage. Hence the importance of a really harmonious relation- ship when a decision for
pregnancy is made . . .
For proper brain development of all children and especially of new-borns and un-borns, is of basic importance: feelings of safety and security in a really friendly, social, and protective
And the feeling to be loved by both of the parents is basic for the feeling of security.
Friendliness trust and spontaneous human respect
Giving and receiving in playfulness and loving friendliness creates friendship trust and loyalty of small children. And a loving friendship and
reliability create trust, and also a first spontaneous respect.
Trust and feelings of connectedness of a child are the basis of its friendliness friend- ship and loyalty, and its friendship and loyalty are the basis of a
first spontaneous human respect.
Important to see is also, that anything not allowed for very small children is against their evolutionary established nature of investigating and trying out . .
And almost all unallowed behaviour of nippers is only based on a modern artificial environment . . . And basically it is better for very small children to adjust their envi- ronment a little to them, than
immediately to adjust them to an unnatural environment.
Nippers and toddlers have however to be set boundaries in their social behaviour.
An aggressive, misbehaving, frustrated or jealous child has to become aware of
its frustrations and emotions, and to learn social behaviour.
Unallowed or wrong behaviour should in the first place be answered by disappointment or sadness, which means the teaching of empathic respect; and next
for toddlers also by explanation, eventually in a short time-out. But not with any anger frustration or authority, but as a contemplation with a friend . . .
For anybody involved in education of children it is of basic
importance to understand the effect of a hostile attitude towards children. And on the moment we become autho- ritarian, we become egocentric and hostile . . . . .
And also, the more frustrated we are, the
more we tend to become egocentric, and the more we tend to become authoritarian and hostile towards our children . . . . .
Children need a human-friendly approach, and as soon as they get an authoritarian
approach, they feel challenged to the same hostile attitude and behaviour . . . . .
And at the same time they get conditioned to block off their empathy and to be ego- centric and narcissistic, and to misuse power, which in
a later age may show up in bullying of other (weak) children.
Condemnation and authoritarian humiliation
Authoritarian condemnation of children means a humiliation of them, and the creation of a low self-esteem, and a negative self-image.
And condemnation also creates desires for self-value self-importance and power.
However as mentioned already, authoritarian condemnation and humiliation is also a conditioning act of misuse of power. And then children tend
to do that also to others.
Instead of condemning or criticizing a child for bad behaviour it should be explained the wrong of the behaviour, and approved and praised for good behaviour. But many parents have no time for
this, and feel frustrated by their misbehaving children, and then start condemning and criticizing them and making things worse . . .
Spontaneous, or imposed obedience
Authority means basically hostility, and it destroys
our friendliness; and our hostility creates resistance and hostility in our child.
Also can frequent hostility towards our children damage or destroy their trust in us.
Love and friendliness however create love
friendliness and trust, and a spontaneous obedience to friendly and respectful requests.
However imposing obedience is basically respectless; and it creates resistance, hostility, separatedness and egocentricity.
And it is basically egocentricity and hostility that creates respectlessness and mis- behaving of our children . . .
Friendship instead of obedience
Don't ask a child to obey,
but ask it to be a friend and to listen and to trust, and be a non-authoritarian friend yourself, who helps, translates and explains. So create friend- ship and understanding instead of obedience.
have to learn that they have still much to learn, and that parents have the knowledge, and that all parents help children to learn. This creates modesty and trust in parental friendship and leadership, and a modest
Conditioning of moral virtues
Moral virtues and a morally positive identity can be learned and conditioned in the first place by example-behaviour; and also by repeated teaching of basic moral
virtues and by approval, compliments or rewards for virtuous behaviour.
Friendliness and human-friendliness are most basic for babies and nippers, and next comes empathy by speaking of pain of others. Then
comes the teaching of friendship, and loyalty is taught by helpfulness and sharing. Modesty and respect is taught by a teaching of the superiority of knowledge of the parents and teachers.
The virtue of integrity is
only for bigger toddlers and all bigger children. However for small toddlers speaking the truth is a matter of trust and feelings of connectedness.
Conditioning of a morally positive identity
Next to the teaching of
friendship and loyalty is also important a regular and continu- ous teaching to always try to be a good, (socially positive) boy, girl or human; and this also by approval, compliments, and eventually small presents.
a teaching to be a good person means also the teaching not to be a bad person. And the bad person should be defined then as someone who doesn't want to be a friend, and thinks only about him or herself, and who does wrong
things, never listens to parents, and who is still stupid and has still much to learn.
Conditioning of moral standards for behaving
Teaching and conditioning of right and wrong behaviour and moral standards is also done by example-behaviour; however also by directly teaching them,
and mentioning them in practical situations.
The first moral standard to learn is respect. Respect out of a human-friendly respectful behaviour of parents, as well mutual, as to family and others.
children respect means: to take into account also others. Especially in the field of sharing respect and empathy has to be developed and learned with other children. And respect for parents has to come out of feelings of
connectedness and trust in the parents and trust in the knowledge and leadership of the parents.
Also equality has to be learned with other children as well as responsibility, peace, and reliability.
Bad examples of badly behaving other children or
people should better not be spoken of as bad people or children, but parents can better speak of a little stupid, frustrated, angry, or uneducated people or children; people or children who still have to learn.
This, to avoid a narcissistic attitude and to avoid a demonizing of these children or people.
Teaching of basic human values
Awareness and understanding of universal human values and moral awareness can be taught already from an age of four or five and until adulthood and on.
However the importance of happiness for everybody and human-friendliness can be taught already to nippers by teaching them to enjoy making happy others.
The power of education
The power of education can most clearly be observed in many cultural extremities.
All cultural extremities show us the almost boundless power of education; even if this education goes against our human nature . .
Japanese samurai warrior culture, and kamikaze pilots of the past are a clear example of how education can create a behaviour which goes even against the basic natural human survival-instinct.
And also the Japanese
honour-identity which can easily lead to suicide is an example of the power of education.
Another clear example is Islamic martyrdom; also an example of education of extreme human behaviour against the basic human survival instinct.
And also all kinds of ritual and traditional weird or unnatural behaviour in other religions and cultures are examples of the power of education.
Nazi-eugenics and demonizing Thesis
The teaching of eugenics and
demonizing of unwanted people was the basis of the culture of national socialism in Germany before and in world-war II, and could also create an unnatural human-destructive behaviour by many German soldiers in concentration
camps. An extreme behaviour contradictory to their natural social human nature . . .
From all of these extremities can be understood that education can create any culture, and so also any behaviour or misbehaviour of people . . .
Education, the basis of all culture
Evolution of cultures and societies Thesis
In general can be said that all cultures in the world have been created by education, and that all cultures and societies in the world are
continuously being created and shaped by education. And in fact they evolve by education.
Seeing the reality of this it is not difficult to imagine the possibility of a global change towards more unity between
cultures by just the addition of some basic and connec- ting information.
Meaning of education
Education anywhere in the world is basically a systematic passing on of information;
a passing on of information by means of conditioning, learning and experiencing.
And this includes also a conditioning of identity and way of thinking and behaviour, which determine all human cultures.
Our way of thinking
All of what we believe or don't believe,
and all of our assumptions have basically been determined by our basic conditioning and by all what we have learned.
And also all of our opinions, and convictions and all of the decisions we make in our lives have
largely been determined by our education.
Our way of behaving
The decisions we make in our lives are also based on our characters, fears, desires and assumptions which are also largely determined by our
And besides our human nature also our individual identity and our way of thinking out of education determine our decisions and our behaviour.
Our cultural and moral identity Thesis
Our cultural and moral identity is also created by our education; however
a cultural identity can also exist with an immoral identity like the identity of criminals.
In fact our education with her conditioning largely determines what kind of people we are, and so also our cultural and moral
identity . . .
Human need for a learned morality
Some scientists in neurology, sociology, psychology and moral philosophy are con- vinced that there is no need for a learned morality because of
our innate social and empathic human nature, and they see our human morality as a natural self-regulating sociological phenomenon.
However our social human nature has mainly to be seen as a potential. A
potential of our basically social human brains with mirror neurons, oxytocin and other neurotrans- mitters, which basically give us the potential of developing basic human virtues.
Virtues and moral standards have to
be learned however in the same way as we have to learn to speak a specific language. A speech-centre in our brains does not yet mean that new-borns can speak immediately. The ability to speak has to be conditi- oned and
educated over many years. And the same can be said about our human morality.
Nature and nurture
Although the rough basics of our physical nature are a genetic given, the gene-expres- sion, which genes are switched on or off, is decided by epigenetic
conditioning which can basically be seen as a bringing-up or education in a broader sense.
Nature delivers the basic physical matter, and nurture shapes it and makes us to who we are in a physical and
And as mentioned before, starting already in our mother's womb.
Culture and nurture
From all of this may be clear that education can be seen as the basis of our culture, and that an addition of some basic and connecting
information has the potential to create more harmony between different cultures, and in that way more unity in the world as a whole.
Human basics as a universal
addition to all education
General acknowledgement Thesis
A generally acknowledged
universal philosophy of human basics can become a uni- versal addition or basis, or a more or less guideline to all education in the world, if sup- ported and propagated by enough people all over the world.
In the first
place this concerns all educational institutions in the world, but also the educational messages of all films, computer-games, books, or media . . .
Comparative verification concept
Human basics is meant to be a blueprint of a basic
guideline to all school-education and also to education by parents at home. However a guideline in the sense of just a comparative verification concept.
And also for all culture- or religion based education it
can have the function of a com- parative verification concept, for Human basics doesn't contradict the essence of any religion.
But Human basics is also and especially meant as a basic guideline for all writers,
designers and producers of books, movies, and computer-games, as well as for writers and editors of newspapers and TV-stations etc.
Moral conditioning Thesis
All writers designers and
producers of books, movies and computer-games as well as writers and editors of newspapers, TV-stations and commercial advertising etc. are by the nature of their work involved in a moral conditioning of our society;
consciously or unconsciously.
Almost any part of a movie, book or computer game etc. contains moral messages which are part of a moral conditioning . . .
However it asks some psychological and
moral understanding and insight to detect and interpret these messages.
Conditioning moral messages
There is the moral message of the whole story or production, or parts of it, and the behavioural messages of any shown individual, and next still the
truth or untruth of the whole story, or parts of it.
There are messages of human values, messages of moral standards, and messages of human virtues or vices, and messages of right or wrong.
But also messages of extreme egocentrism, respectlessness, carelessness, macho behaviour of men and propagation of extreme capitalism, and propagation of antisocial behaviour, or merciless cruelty. And also enemy- and
demonizing-conditioning, and conditioning of violent egocentric behaviour, and justice of vengeance, etc. etc.
Conditioning of a psychopathic mentality Thesis
In particular conditioning of a respectless macho behaviour of men, and conditioning of violent egocentric behaviour and merciless cruelty may have
a stimulating effect on the development of a psychopathic mentality in those with a very egocentric mentality already, and who are lacking empathic ability already . . .
Education and conditioning Thesis
Education is the general and universal basis of individual human
development, and it largely determines and creates our identity and moral mentality.
For a big part education is a process of programming or conditioning; however besides this also a process of development of
understanding, insight and consciousness.
And a globally agreed and globally accepted education of universal basic knowledge is the only possible instrument to bring about a gradual change towards a more and more
natural, peaceful and social humanity.
The educational power of Human basics Thesis
The power of the moral education of Human basics is its naturalness, universality and its logic. But also and especially, its almost forcing towards a morally
positive identity, and its focussing on awareness of human need for self-esteem and sense of one's own dignity, and awareness of the basic human need for approval by others.
And as already advanced: sense of one's own
dignity out of our value for others, or our society, and/or humanity creates a human-friendly mentality, which is a universal and independent basis of a sustainable morality.
Human basics and IQ tests Thesis
If Human basics presents the most basic knowledge for any human
wherever on the world, then it is bound to become part of all future IQ tests all over the world.
And also in this way it has a potential to advance a universal education on a global scale.
Human basics in three versions
Human basics is meant to be issued in three versions: original, popular and simple.
"Original" for those who want to study, criticize, comment or extend it,
"popular" for everybody easy to read, and "simple" for the level of understanding of children.
Effects of human basics
Awareness of responsibility
The knowledge and understanding of human basics
may have created a sense of responsibility for the quality of our society and the world we are living in, as well as a sense of responsibility for the quality of our own life.
And this may create a willingness to change
this world, as well as a willingness to change our own mentality and way of life.
The very understanding of our human nature, highest human values, and most basic human virtues can already create a change in our
mentality without any effort.
Understanding of other people
Understanding and awareness of our human nature in general can bring us to some introspection and self-knowledge, and in that way also to some change in our men-
tality and way of life. However this understanding can bring us also to a better under- standing of all other people in our life and all other people in the world . . .
Awareness of identity
By reviewing our own identity we can create more awareness of it and
eventually move towards a morally positive identity, and eventually to a more basic, more true or existential aspect of it, to be rewarded by more sense of our own dignity and self- esteem, and in that way also by a little more
love and happiness in our life.
Understanding the advantage of a morally positive identity for our ability to experience our highest human values of love and happiness and all what is related to that, can create a
basically different way of life, and can make our life more worth living.
Small or big way of thinking and living
A respectless egocentric and collective egocentric mentality and way of thinking is the opposite of a universal moral, or a global-social or universal-human
way of thinking.
And basically every conscious human being can choose between a human-friendly respectful and positive creative way of thinking and living, and a blind egocentric and more or less antisocial and
respectless way of thinking and living.
And our sense of self-esteem can be pettily related to our possessions, power, fame prestige, or honour, or to our human dignity and humane idealism and our value for other
people, our society, and humanity, and in that way to our value for the ultimate future humanity . . .
So basically every human has the freedom to choose between a small way of thinking and living, or a
big way of thinking and living . . .
Change of mentality
Our awareness that respectless blind and uninhibited human egocentrism is the root- cause of all dominance, suppression, humiliation, exploitation, misuse of
power, rape violence, war and all other human misery may create some change in our mentality.
More awareness of our egocentrism can change or weaken it, and can also change it to a more respectful
egocentrism. And more respect weakens it even more.
More respect, empathy, altruism and humane idealism can take us away from a small unconscious egocentric thinking and also from distant isolated loneliness, depression
Our positive creativity
We can basically live out of the egocentric question of what the world has to offer me, or what can I get from it, or, we can live out of the question what can I give to the world What can I do to create a better or more
beautiful world to live in for everybody and for future humanity.
The egocentric needy and greedy attitude creates emptiness and misery, and the positive creative attitude creates strength, self-esteem and sense of
one's own dignity. And moreover it creates friends, love and happiness, and a new kind of humanity.
Awareness of the meaning of true human respect can create a focus-change from exclusive self-importance towards an importance of others and of all the
positive and beautiful things in the world.
This creates an openness for perception and empathy, and more experience of all the positive and beautiful in the world . . .
Democracy and political conviction
Awareness of our social human nature and highest
human values, moral standards and our basic human virtues can also change our political choices in contemporary democracies.
Most big parties in western democracies tend to capitalistic extremism and are in support of a
basically antisocial and society-hostile egocentric survival-mentality in their society . . .
Effect on macho-behaviour
Impressive macho-behaviour or trying to be cool shows a lack of human integrity and a lack of moral and creative identity and often an
It shows a lack of self-esteem and a lack of sense of one's own dignity and integrity. So a lack of one of our most basic moral qualities. And also a lack of the basic moral qualities of modesty and
Macho-behaviour has also an example-function
for others with a low self-esteem and a lack of sense of their own dignity.
However, our understanding that a macho-identity is basically the identity of psycho- paths (fearless, egocentric, respectless, callous, and
deep down untrue and manipu- lative) could make it one day disappear . . .
Good and bad people
Basic moral understanding and education can bring us also easily to a judgment about good and bad people.
However as soon as we start thinking in terms of
good and bad people, we may tend to discrimination and demonizing and lose our empathy.
Good and bad people means basically just people with a good or bad education, and in that sense "bad people" are just underdeveloped
people, and in the need of some more education.
And criminals are in general basically mis-educated people, with a mental or moral disorder, and are as such basically ill people, in the need of treatment and
Global culture against human extinction
The global culture of egocentrism, narcissism, psychopathy and capitalistic extremism can ultimately only bring humanity to extinction, for
it creates only respectlessness, frustration, anger, and more and more egocentrism, human-hostility and enmity, and it goes against our very highest human values, and it is basically humanity-hostile . . .
Humanity has to
continue her evolutionary development towards her very highest human values and to move more and more towards intelligence love and happiness and all what is related to that.
This means towards a social global
culture of human-friendliness, integrity, empathy, loyalty, justice, positive creativity and humane idealism, and responsibility-awareness for nature.
A basic solution for all of the biggest
issues in the world
Global understanding and agreement Thesis
A global understanding of human nature and universal human values and virtues can create a global agreement on the solution of all of the
global problems of humanity, by means of a joint global cooperation.
Understanding, awareness and agreement on our blind human egocentrism and blind collective egocentrism and its consequences can create a change towards a
global responsibility-awareness and a global-social creative win-win-win cooperation.
But especially when the moral virtues of empathy, loyalty and humane idealism be- come universally accepted and embraced . . .
And a more or less merito-referendal democracy in all of the nations in the world could also play a major role in that global social win-win-win cooperation.
Basic education and global cooperation-potential Thesis
Our global communication-potential in
combination with a global agreement on the basics of our common human nature and a global agreement on universal human values, moral standards and natural human virtues can create a basically universal global education, and a
common global culture of empathy, respect, and loyalty.
This combination can create a huge human potential of cooperation.
A win-win-win cooperation-potential unknown in human history, and incomparable to what has ever
happened on this earth.
And this cooperation-potential and readiness to cooperate can easily solve any of the biggest global problems of humanity . . . . .
The problem of overpopulation is directly connected with the problem of global ecology,
for the earth can maintain only a certain amount of people with a certain lifestyle.
However changing only our lifestyle can deliver no more than just a temporary effect.
The only solution is a global change in moral mentality and life expectation; instead of an unlimited freedom to reproduce as we like, we
have to turn to a voluntary birth- control of a 2-child policy which would slowly reduce the world population if combined with a global education of human basics and the before mentioned parental reproduc- tion certificate.
Basically a 2-child policy as a new moral standard. And then there will be no more need for any war, chaos, or mass killings or so in the future.
And especially the basic human virtue of humane idealism
can be seen as highly supportive of this kind of voluntary birth-control policy.
The only basic solution for the human
corruption and criminality problem
From all of the previous may be clear that in a more and more secular world a basic and universal
human morality is indispensable for any free and open society.
And a moral conditioning and education has to be seen as indispensable for the solu- tion of the human corruption and criminality problem if a humane GM-
eugenics is left out of consideration.
Here humanity has no other option than to choose for a universal basic moral edu- cation. An education and conditioning focussed on the development of a morally positive
identity and a morally positive way of thinking, and to oppose an egocentric
or more or less narcissistic or more or less psychopathic development . . . . .
Change by people in power Thesis
Basically the only people who can change our world into a better place to
be, are the people in a position of power. And in particular people in the power of education in any sense; so in the first place parents of children, but next also teachers in schools, and the mentioned publicists, producers,
and game designers etc.
However also all psychologists, forensic psychiatrist and brain scientists can play a very important role.
And on political level also all ministers and officials in the departments of education
and science, culture, social work and social affairs, welfare and public health, justice, interior, defence, economic affairs, environment and energy, agriculture and fisheries, housing, information, trade and industry, and all
people in power in companies and institutions. And as last but not least, also all religious leaders and religious teachers.
All of these people in power carry a huge responsibility for the quality of the world we are
living in today, and its change . . . . .
Foundation for world peace Thesis
A global agreement on our common human nature, most basic human values, moral standards and basic natural virtues, and out of this a common
basic or integral global culture means also a foundation for a lasting global peace.
And especially in regard of the future mentality of people in power and politicians in general. However a basic
condition for this global culture is a global integration of universal basic knowledge in all means of education in the world.
Idealism realism and cynicism
Many people in the world who understand the major
problems of humanity have become cynical regarding their solution. However cynicism can lead here easily to fatalism. And fatalism means here consolidation of these problems or even worse . . .
Our only choice is here: help to change the mentality of humanity, and our own . . . . .
Understanding the power of global communication and the power of education can easily turn on our idealism which can create a new
reality . . .
One generation Thesis
In a time-span of one generation humanity can
change from a more or less immoral egocentric survival-mentality to a more social, human-friendly, and more responsible mentality, out of moral understanding and moral awareness, and out of understanding of our human nature.
This is the only way to change the chaotic and divided state of humanity and to solve all of the major world-problems.
And in that way the whole world can by and by change into a place where every human being can
live in peace, health, prosperity and happiness, and feel at home.
The best outcome of Human basics would be the development of a global movement of independent people who promote and support the spreading of basic intelligence
and the contents or objectives of Human basics wherever possible.
And to become an independent part of this global movement can give a new sense and meaning to anybody's life . . .
Also everybody is
free to create a local independent organization or community in his or her country, town or village to promote and support the spreading of this philosophy, if not against the law.
Twitter, Facebook and other communication
availability of the internet and the new social media have created new communi- cation circuits and hence also a certain polarizing effect within societies.
Anybody aware of extreme, human-hostile, society-hostile or
retarded communication circuits can interfere here with some basic and positive creative information.
However this information should not be contradictory, but constructive and positive creative, and adjusted to the
level of understanding and perspective of that circuit.
Just to provide some clarity, nuances and basic points of view in such more or less isolated communication circuits.
Other use of Twitter, Facebook, Linked in, etc.
media can also be used to show one's agreement with the objectives and theses of Human basics, which basically states a basic intelligence and a morally positive mentality.
In this way Human basics can be
used to support a personal profile, in the sense of basic intelligence and morality, eventually mentioning some doubts, disagreements or exclusions of certain points.
As well total agreement as a more or less, or
partial agreement, or a particular dis- agreement etc. states something about our mentality.
This way of showing one's colours can be in our advantage in connections with other morally positive people, and eventually also
in connections with some (more or less) antisocial or criminal people, for it also means some basic understanding of such a mentality.
Further development of human basics
Blueprint for further development
Human basics is a first design of a coherent basic
knowledge-constitution of basic importance for all of humanity, and potentially able to solve all the biggest problems of humanity.
However as such it is also meant to be a blueprint for further development; open
to additions, eventual corrections, clarifications or refinements.
Open global forum
Anyone regardless education, who thinks to have a reasonable suggestion or com- ment can discuss that on a global forum, where also others can give their vision;
and if there is an agreement, and it improves or completes the information of Human basics, it can be inserted then.
A decision for a reaction on the global forum should not be made before having read
the whole contents of human basics. Sometimes one can on a first sight disagree on certain details in unawareness of the bigger context or previous explanations.
Objectives and premises
For a reaction is also important to keep in mind the objectives of
human basics: to create more social unity in the world, which is needed for realization of the highest human values for everyone, and also to create more unity in the world for more harmony and peace between states, and for
global cooperation to solve the biggest problems of humanity.
And also the premises should be kept in mind, such as the premise to become a universal guideline for global education, and the premise of basic knowledge
for every human wherever on the world, and regardless culture, religion, status or race.
Basic and brief
To be included the additions should be at least as basic as the existing information.
However, information could also be added as a little less
basic, but also of basic importance for everyone in the world to know or understand.
To keep it a basic knowledge, it should be kept as brief as possible, and details also as brief as possible. However, as brief as
possible without losing clarity.
This will keep the forum conveniently ordered and arranged, and easily accessible.

Definitions and explanations
With agnosticism is meant here: so called open, empirical, or temporal agnosticism.
The literal meaning of the word, as "not-knowingness"; however with an openness
towards experience, or future experience.
In short: knowledge, understanding, and awareness of human nature, and most basic human values, standards, and virtues and vices, and of their relations and
With a class society
is meant here a divided society of a rich upper-class with access to knowledge and development and a poor lower class underdeveloped and frustrated and living in criminality and misery.
However as explained before,
with the upper class living in the misery of narcissism or a more or less psychopathic mentality.
With discrimination is meant here: the literal and realistic meaning of the word, as to distinguish, or to make a distinction;
so, recognition and understanding of differences.
To make one's ego the only centre in one's way of thinking, and to make oneself so important, that one doesn't see any more the interests or needs of other people.
It means an exclusive self-focusedness, and contains egoism, complacency and an exaggerated self-concern. And often it also contains egotism and self-conceit.
Conditioning by film or computer game to fight an enemy, and to immediately
demo- nize someone who does something wrong as an enemy, for justifying violence.
Often it leads to inappropriate violence. (think also of police) (and e.g. "who is not for us is against us". . . )
Improvement of the human race by selection, GM, or epi-genetics.
Basically an understanding of
socially right and wrong behaviour, and right and wrong personal qualities, and awareness of our highest moral values, standards and virtues, and to live out of a morally positive identity.
Wrongdoing in the sense of a conscious act, decision or omission
creating harm, damage, misery, danger or injustice to other people, or harm to other people's well- being, or harm to nature which we are all part of, and regardless legal or illegal.
With parasitism or a parasitical mentality is meant
here the exploitative mentality and way of life of gaining personal prosperity or wealth on costs of other people or nature without a reasonable compensation for it.
From re - spect; so literally: to look once more; to look a little better to
another person, or to the society, or to nature, etc. To look once more, to create an understanding of the other which creates feelings of connectedness, sympathy or even loving. So, to take the or that other in account
and to make the or that other important.
With social Darwinism is meant here the theory that the life of humans in a society has basically to be an individual struggle for existence, ruled
by the survival of the fit- test. Wealth is seen here to be a sign of natural superiority, and its absence a sign of unfitness. And this theory has often been used to justify the laissez-faire capitalism, imperialism, and
racism . . .
However social Darwinism in the sense of an individual survival mentality within a hu- man society is basically against our social human nature, as genetically established
in our physical human brains (mirror-neurons and oxytocin etc.).
And social Darwinism supports egocentrism, narcissism, antisocial behaviour and a psychopathic mentality in any human society . . .
In this writing: a statement suggested for assumption
as a basic premise or a basic consideration in our way of thinking.
Sometimes this may be a statement which is for many or most people obvious.
The practice of totalitarian ruled states shows a basically rigged
ideology of govern- ment, which is fundamentally permanent and anti-democratic . . .
There is no freedom of expression of opinion and speech of truth, and it is based on disregard for individual human values like
freedom, love and happiness. It means a dictatorial and bossy government and not a leader-government, and it's based on keeping power by oppression and use of terror and violence by a secret police.
Hence it creates fear and survival-mentality, and it chokes human creativity . . . . .
Regarding Human basics
Regarding Human basics can be said, that although it propagates an in basics uni- versal human culture, Human basics is not a fixed ideology, but
basically an observa- tion-based analysis of human nature, and an observation-based description of natural human morality, and an explanation of the implications.
The principle that everybody's vote on a subject can be controlled by
everybody, as well as the reason of choice for a certain vote. If someone would be bribed or forced to a fake vote all people who know that person will know that this vote is a faked vote.
Virtue / moral quality / moral virtue
Moral quality, or moral goodness, in the sense of a developed natural human quality
of mind and identity, supporting the realization and continuation of our very highest individual and social human values. So, supportive to
the well-being and happiness of other people, our society or humanity, as well as of ourselves. Virtues or moral quali- ties can also be seen as social qualities.
With a win-win-win cooperation is meant here: a win-win
cooperation, which creates a new win-effect, which not only consists of more prosperity, safety and peace, but also of more trust, connectedness, friendship, and sense of unity and loyalty . . .
For this is however also
needed some basic intelligence, and especially in the sense of awareness of our most basic values, and humane idealism.
And the extra win-addition can also be seen in the sense of cooperation between many states or cultures, because it creates more global unity.
