Politics is the art/science of governing – which itself is ‘holding control over a government’ - which is to ‘hold control over people’. This is inherently imbalanced, since it is always the case that governments use a monopoly on violence to overpower anyone who they effectively choose to.
The degree to which they can do this depends on:
People support politics because they have been taught to believe that it is in their best interests to do so – sometimes because they will get beaten if they don’t support politics or for more positive reasons, such as that they think they can gain something through it. However, in almost all cases, nearly everyone loses valuable things as a result of politics and the things they think they gain could have been gained in other ways without losing out what they really need to be keeping.
Both the points which define how much a political group can abuse others rely on:
Either the politicians are using these to manipulate other people or the people are doing this to themselves and each other (consciously or unconsciously).
The only way to have real balance – where balance is defined as ‘no person or thing is overpowering any other’ - we need to end these 6 dysfunctions. The result will be actual free will, which itself then leads to greater personal empowerment and peace.
If we don’t create real peace then we are stuck in a power struggle forever – with constant casualties and no real progress. Do you really think ANY real progress has been made in human history? REALLY? We have more advanced technology than we did in the last few thousand years – but setting aside the high probability that lost civilisations advanced their technology even further and were then destroyed – is technology really a sign of progression? When that technology is fundamentally being used to kill, maim and manipulate (see: smartphone spying, drone warfare, nuclear weapons, covert black projects, microwave warfare and on and on) – we haven’t really made any progress from the days of cavemen figuring out how to throw heavier rocks at each other.
The only real progress is one of real and felt balance. This requires an and to many features of society that we often take for granted and even think we cannot live without. What replaces them will be much better, provided we understand the full details and make the right decisions. The most fundamental of these is to set ‘respect for free will’ as the highest priority. If we respect each other’s free will, we aren’t overpowering anyone. The biggest challenge to this is that there many people who don’t care about others’ free will. However, if we do not give these people more power than they rightly have, then the problems can be resolved. Currently, we are typically giving such people a great deal of power – as can be seen via the recent case of Jeffrey Epstein.
How would this actually play out? It’s up to YOU! It’s up to YOUR FREE WILL!
