‘Enlightened self interest, a philosophy which states that acting to further the interests of others also serves one’s own self-interest’. Wikipedia
We live within an economic system, capitalism, that has as its basis, self interest.
With billions of people using that philosophy, it is not long before we outrun the natural resources on the planet, or at least their ability to reproduce.
How does one move from a place of self interest to enlightened self interest, where considering the whole is the more automatic response?
The underlying system needs an earth shaking event!
Who will bring that event to the surface of our current society? What will it take to change institutions of higher learning?
Is our society ready for the new paradigm or are we content with the culture that has been created?
Each of us has to answer the questions posed here & more importantly put them into action in our daily actions.
