A functioning society requires communal spirit and sustainable development

Community is the glue and foundation of a functioning society, however over time the concept and ethos of community has largely disappeared from the current model of society, as people are increasingly self-isolating. The need for communal thinking has been gradually suppressed by power, money, selfishness, self-centered thinking, bureaucracy, corruption, business, and many other things. At this moment in time, in 2020, it is becoming evident how fragile human existence is without community, culture, values, gentle acts, love, a healthy planet. We face a real existential crisis, as ultimately life will always prevail and it does not need humans, and therefore we can choose to change or be our own downfall. Our planet and nature in general are great at changing and adapting, but when things go too far they also will take to drastic measure to protect their own interest. For humans to exist in the current scale some drastic structural change are required to society and human ethics, otherwise the future outlook is simply grim, as nature will take its vengeance and punish humanity for its ignorant ways. This section focuses on the rapid and constructive change of society.
