Some may argue otherwise but it seems it is human nature to evolve and those who are able evolve to survive better will upend those who evolve slower or are hampered by factors beyond their ken so that disparity has become the common weal and not the common wealth of mankind today.

The danger is that there are two sides of the same coin, and the other side says that the same evolutionary mechanism which has entrenched disparity has also encoded a sense of justice in human nature so that disparity is perceived as unjust, a perception that may lend to more conflict and instability unless countervailing forces are interposed.

Perhaps the way to flip that coin is to force-scythe through with a reconfiguration program. The older bigger and more presently capable entity will only bid and do the bigger more complex jobs and farm out parts of them where less skills and ability are needed to the newer smaller and less influential entities so that the latter can also experience the evolution of capability.

This implicit arrangement must however be reinforced by another acceptance - that meritocracy will be protected with a good governance system applicable uniformly to all so that fairness will be upheld and no entity will be upended for being lower in the evolutionary chain.

However this itself comes at a cost, namely the meritocracy process itself is impeded by slower processing and encumbered procedures none of which may change the final result. Which however does not mean better methods cannot be found so that the entire galaxy of entities will rise in concert one with the other.

What applies here for commerce and industry can also apply for society and thus enter the domain of human nature. In the very evolution of this thread, that is being done.....here and now.....yes?

Well, you sound like a broken record, Pet. Haven't you told us the same fairy many times over the last five years?

There is NO CONCERTED EFFORT at harnessing our brains and enslaving us. Why should commoners have a say over which philosophies and religions gain the upper hand? Commoners at around Jesus' time had no leisure to think about the true way to bliss.

Have you ever thought of joining a tribal people somewhere in the jungles of Borneo, Brazil or Congo?
Do you think they welcome conspiracy theorists and haters of progress? They do not consciously reject Mosaic religions - they simply do not know that they exist. If you want to join one of these tribes you will no doubt have to undergo a brain laundering act with dire consequences. Human sacrifices may be common, and a foreign member of their tribe might be a more suitable sacrificial lamb than a native one.

Most people simply don't care about the past nor the future; they live in the here and now. They are self-centred and do not want to fight for some cause or engage in some dispute. Politics are for cretins, really. People who don't believe in governments fare best; those who don't vote experience the least frustrations and disappointments. In the end that is our destiny: to protect our own interests, to multiply and to preserve our lives till we expire. As long as we do not produce too many hungry mouths our presence does not call for political action. Unfortunately, if peace is with us for a while we become self-complacent, lead a comfortable and eventually lazy life and seek to prolong our lifespan by hook or by crook. Medicine and good food keeps us healthy; wars reduce the numbers of our enemies or perhaps of our own people. We will go to war if we live too long and produce too many offspring - they will require more land resources to feed and house them. These facts are not decided by individfuals; they are biologically encoded. There are too many human Earthlings not becauyse of some diabolical conspiracy but because humanity is leading too good a life. Politicians perhaps exhort people to breed (many Fascists and COmmunists are known to have done that) or to stop having children - but then they have to enforce it with Draconian means (remember China...!).

Waah, my Pet the Canary, I am truly surprised by the freedoms you enjoy in our FOrum, the freedom to use non-adult language in answering adult posts. You norally complain so often about being "censored"...

Double Standards and Moral Standard

You ignored the post that reacted to. Your moral standards require improvement.
The moderators did not remove the offending post and I was forced to react.
