How can human greed be restricted?


A01.The human being active today is biologically the same as the hunter-gatherer 50,000 years ago in the African savannah or in the ice age rot.

A02.The basic pattern of his behavior has not fundamentally changed for 50,000 years: selfishness, willingness to use violence, overestimation of himself, greed for a territory of his own, for power and the new.

A03. Although equipped with an analytical mind, trial and error is always the preferred method for solving problems of all kinds.

A04.Effectiveness is the premise of all actions: moving or thinking ... only when it is absolutely necessary! Avoid any effort!

A05. We have to survive today! Yesterday and the day after tomorrow do not exist. The quick repair is always preferred to the general solution.

A06. Burning curiosity, but interest in an object or fact decreases exponentially with its distance.

A07.Lying, deception and deception for one's own benefit are built into human genes. (Even primates can do that!)

A08.Better self-deception, whitewashing and 'saving face' than looking reality in the eye without make-up.

A09.It was not me! I didn't make a mistake! It was always the others. The easiest way to atone for your own guilt: A scapegoat is sent into the desert.

A10.Agriculture and sedentarism significantly modify human behavior. The pursuit of possession develops from the territorial behavior.

A11.With the interest economy and the surplus value, the peasant of the Neolithic invented the economic foundations of all later civilizations (surplus value: more than is needed to survive and to preserve the species).

A12. A secure food supply and a successful fight against the forces of nature with tools and technology lead to prosperity and leisure.

A13. Added value is wealth, power, property and reputation. As soon as the conservation of the species is assured, the greed for surplus value becomes a species of man.

A14. The higher the prosperity, the more its maintenance and increase becomes the primary goal in life.

A15. Despite the greed for added value, power and prestige, sex remains the 'basic instinct'. You can't have sex 24 hours a day. Greed, however, can easily be kept awake for 24 hours. It dominates human behavior much more than sex.

A16. Man is an individual. He lives alone in a world he has created himself, always acts subjectively and takes himself far too seriously. He is only able to see reality through someone else's glasses to a very limited extent.

A17. People only submit to group interests through external coercion (environmental conditions) or internal violence (clan chief, king, priest, party secretary).

A25. Man is contradicting itself. It is dominated by opposing interests and behavioral patterns. His behavior is unpredictable.

A18. Human beings vacillate lifelong between freedom, individuality and independence and the longing for security in a social community, dominated by the 'good king' who says where to go.

A19. Humans have reason, but are almost exclusively controlled by their emotions. Emotions also 'color' the results of his rational thinking.

A20. Normally people don't think. Routine determines his everyday life. He has no idea of ​​his own or the complexity of his environment.

A25. People make gross mistakes when thinking because they overestimate themselves and ignore the complexity of nature.

A21. Since man has been thinking, he needs a mental structure (world view), asks about the hereafter and the meaning of his existence.

A22. When it comes to the worldview and the question of meaning, the simplest solution is preferred because it saves you having to think about yourself: religion.

A23. The natural division of labor between women and men has also modified their behavior. Women and men have (genetically determined) different motivations and interests. It is only in industrial society that ignoring this fact leads to conflict.

A24. Man is not the crown of creation, but a living being in evolution. State of development now. It is perfectly clear that in fifty million years there will be other people ... if that species survives.


B01. Man is an individual, but can only survive in a community.

B02.The most natural form of human community is the clan, consisting of a maximum of 30 people. Clear hierarchy and division of labor between men and women. (Ice Age Rotte, Aboriginals).

B03.As soon as a group is larger than 30 people, different rules apply to living together in a community. A society has arisen.

B04. Lifelong monogamy is neither God's will, nor does it have a natural preference. It is one of the many possibilities of human community.

B05. All previous human societies have tended to monopolize the exercise of power and opinion-forming: dynasties, empires and kingdoms, dictatorships or oligarchies were and are the result.

B06. Conflicts have been and continue to be carried out with violence in every form of society. Reason hardly matters. The history of human civilization is the history of violence, war and terror.

B07. The state is the political system of rule in a society. States behave like people.

B08. The kingdom of God, communism, democracy; Equality, brotherhood, justice ... all social utopias. Man is not good enough for it.

B09. Education and knowledge of natural science (among a minority of people) has created technology as the basis of a qualitatively new society: the industrial society. It calls itself civilization, the earlier societies were 'uncivilized'.

B22. A global structural change is currently taking place from an industrial society to a knowledge-based service society. Information and knowledge are increasingly becoming the fourth production factor alongside capital, labor and land.

B10. Never before have humans had such effective means at their disposal as they do today to exercise power and assert themselves against nature.

B11. The consequences of the industrial and service society: mass prosperity, population explosion, global change in the environment and technical risks on an unprecedented scale.

B12. People do violence to other people in a completely new quality: Holocaust against many peoples, industrial extermination, ABC weapons, armament of space.

B13. In the new millennium, suicide terrorism has proven to be an equal threat to high-tech military and NBC weapons.

B14.Nobody controls this civilization. Their development is the sum of the unbridled, human drive.

B15. Many parameters of today's civilization have an exponential course: energy consumption, clearing of the rainforest, garbage production, processor performance, storage volume, growth of the earth's population, etc.

B16. The culture is inflationary: values, taboos, laws; New publications in books, magazines, music titles; Number of millionaires, stars and divorces; Expiry times of news, products and knowledge - what was new and right yesterday is already out of date and wrong today.

B17. The former Christian models are dissolving: marriages and families are breaking up, family structures are falling apart, old people and children are left alone.

B18. Industrial production means extreme division of labor. The result: isolation and alienation instead of a large family.

B19. In today's society dominated by the market and money, the 'single' can survive best: a mobile, flexible and genderless nomad looking for a job.

B20. At no time has man moved further from his natural way of life than today.

B21. People are incapable of developing theirs

B.23. The speed with which a society's circumstances change is a direct measure of its instability.
