Intelligent Revolutions Provide a Universal Solution for Global Crises
Indeed, all human-caused crises today such as climate change, military conflicts, vaccine injustice, racism, sexism, et cetera are deeply connected to human nature. Our endless hunger for something free, for example, has led to exploiting natural resources in such a way with environmental catastrophe as to bring about massive extinction everywhere.
Why are most people reluctant to take action against the climate crises? It’s probably because leaders will hardly be elected if asking the voters to do more work or to earn less money. Besides, is it fair for a few nations to take an arduous journey to protecting the global environment while the rest of the world seems motionless? Is it necessary for a few individuals to sacrifice modern comforts while a growing number of drug addicts, alcoholics and gluttons are wasting much more resources than the few could possibly save?
I think intelligence holds the key to overcoming the dark side of human nature and to promoting the bright side. Without major improvement on intelligence in general population, I’m afraid that most would just keep doing business as usual.
A new idea about human evolution proves that making continuous improvements on mental faculties is our only way to survive and to thrive in the long term. A flexible price system for digital products has the potential to start intelligent revolutions which may provide a viable solution to global crises facing the world.
If intelligent species ever fail in survival, it’s only because they haven’t got sufficient time to become intelligent enough. Let’s evolve mentally sooner than later.
