“How Will The World Compensate For The Growing Energy Needs And Resource Consumption Of Developing Nations Like China And India When Nations Like The United States Consume Resources Disproportionate To Their Populations?” (Quora)
Michael Laitman, On Quora: “How will the world compensate for the growing energy needs and resource consumption of developing nations like China and India when nations like the United States consume resources disproportionate to their populations?“
It is impossible to stop the struggle for natural resources used to produce raw materials. This struggle will lead to major problems such as imbalances between countries, and also wars. The extent to which our world lacks balance and equality is only now becoming apparent.
The balance between what we need and how much we can receive from the world is possible if the world will accept the altruistic law upon itself.
What is the altruistic law? It is a law present in nature, which human society is obligated to reach.
The countries of the world will then start sharing everything they have, including their production, raw materials, energy and information—equally for everyone, according to the population numbers, their culture, education and consumption, taking into consideration the conditions of the climate, and so on. In other words, only the realization of the fact that we are in a single global system and are thus obliged to treat everyone accordingly will bring us to balance in how we use the world’s natural and technological resources.
