“Do You Know The Connection Between Politics And Violence?” (Quora)

Dr. Michael LaitmanMichael Laitman, On Quora: Do you know the connection between politics and violence?

The problem is in the fact that human development is driven by egoism, which is the desire to enjoy at the expense of others and nature. Egoism is human nature and it is why we cannot perform any actions unless they come from our egos.

Accordingly, the connection between politics and violence is that in politics we use the same laws and the same goals, except we place them within the confines of a certain legitimacy, which we can continue to maintain in the future. In other words, politics is simply the continuation of the power of the fist. Until humanity’s approach to life and organization of international relations changes from egoistic to altruistic, we will be unable to perform any political action that is not forced. Only an altered approach to humanity as to a single global integrated organism will change reality such that politics will become global. After all, we are in a small global village.

In this case, decisions will be made by a government that envelops the world under the influence of intentions that are directed toward the good of progress and the good of the existence of the world, just like a live organism. Then, every person will receive a position from this “head” of the world. By doing so, we will divide the burden among everyone so that every person will know that their part is determined by the fact that they need to contribute their share to the world precisely in such a way, in order for the world to live in peace.

We will all live and prosper, and achieve not even just our material life—we will merit another level of living, the infinite spiritual flow of nature. We will take care not only of material life, our bodies, but also our souls. We will be able to ascend to such a level on condition that we will reach an altruistic life.
