Is society something that could be adapted to be made perfect? How is this possible if it is? Keith Raniere, who has faith in this idea is the founder of an organization in New York called NXIVM.
Something that I learned from a friend is that NXIVM believes that through knowledge and ethical decisions, our civilization can become a better place. I informed her it sounded a bit like utopia to me. She affirmed this thought and explained to me that this was the vision of this organization.
People like those in this organization, my friend, and now myself – I would put us in the group of idealists. We think humanity stands a chance! This is something that can be done if everyone works together for the cause.
On the other hand, you have realists that believe that no matter what we do, people will always revert to things like violence and oppression. In a realists thoughts, the world is a dystopia and will never get any better than it is but only get worse.
How are idealists part in the worlds recipe? What role do we play in this world? What kind of world do we actually live in, a good one or a bad one? It might rely upon the person you ask about the issue. This world is full of many different people. If the world is going to end up a changed place, people are going to have to start changing first.
Mimicking this reality of a Utopia become a reality is something that many people struggle with because they don’t know where to start. There are various changes that should be made if we are to ever see a perfect world, what are they? Well, given that a society is composed of a whole bunch of individuals, it makes sense to me that the answer lies within the change of each individual.
Every person reacts differently to certain situations and these reactions are based on persons moral fiber or ethics. These feelings inside you that tell you if something is wrong or right is you ethical beliefs. It stands to reason that if we can develop a strong sense of ethics within the individuals of our society, ourselves, that we might have the key to utopia. This is something that NXIVM absolutely believes people can accomplish. This organization believes that ethics abounds over everything in our universe and will eventually be used to help people work as a team. If everyone were selfless and wanted a better place for everyone else, it would come to pass that everyone would want to work on themselves. If we want it bad enough, people will start to open their eyes to this concept.
