    Too Much Complexity Ruins the World

    It's a big wonder, indeed, that despite the advance civilization has reached, human beings still kill each other. Individual against individual, group against group, nations against nations.

    Aren't law, philosophy and religion enough body of systematized knowledge for us all to realize what is good and what is bad?

    The material resources of the earth are more than enough to satisfy the needs of all mankind. Yet, millions of people around the world suffer from poverty, hunger, homelessness and many more socio-economic deprivations. The basic underlying problem, therefore, is not material but on the state of our mind. It's on the way we consider ourselves and the people and material things around us.

    There may be existing laws of man and of God to guide us towards the proper conduct but it depends on how law-abiding and religious we are on keeping those laws. Besides, nations differ on their laws, religion and philosophy. The world has become so complicated already.

    I think we should all go back to the simplest rule: "Do not do to others what you do not want others to do to you." If we all follow this rule, our world would be the best place to live. All our social, economic and political problems would be solved.
