Question: If a society or even a small group wants to find a solution, they will never go wrong by uniting for a higher goal. Will the common solution be more correct than the individual solutions of each person?
Answer: Naturally. But do not confuse two paths: coming to a common decision through many egos put together, and arriving at a common decision through rising above oneself, in faith above reason.
It is characteristic of the wisdom of crowd that under certain conditions they find something in common out of all the opinions, which turns out to be closer to the truth.
But in order to unite a large number of people, everyone must annul their egoism for the sake of a higher goal.
