When you try to evolve.
I listened to this while writing this post, try it while you read :o)
This post is the seventh in a series of posts about a reflection on our ability to socially evolve. These posts should be read in the order of their publication. For example, starting with the 6th would make no sense to the reader. Happy reading!
Yesterday, we were thinking about the distinction between the independence of a group and an individual. The independence of a group is at the detriment of the individual’s independence and vice versa. The individual in question then has a choice: Will they take the risk of joining a group?
By default, few have had to make this choice in the modern world. The rural exodus has created a real tidal wave in urban centers, leading future generations to follow the crowd. But was it the right choice? I would say yes and no. Yes, because, from an educational perspective, specialization has sped up the deepening of knowledge in several fields and without this pooling, we probably wouldn’t have been able to create the synergy that led humans to share their knowledge and skills.
Yes, it was partly done in a virtuous way, but too often, it was done in a way that we could never have imagined. With one thing leading to another, common actions have created suffering and death.
So here’s why I would also say no. We rarely took the time to work on the how, rather than the what.
