Realize that we are human beings sharing a common endeavour
If we human beings can truly start to see ourselves the equals we are. If we add the imagination like the one we used to create the institution of nation-states.
If we use what Donella Meadow called mental flexibility to update our boundaries to accommodate our goal where we all can flourish within limits.
If we act according to the same goal adhering to same principles, like the principles here, the type of organization whether it is an international organization, a state, municipality, civil society organization or a company is of lesser concern, as a long it is administrative appropriate to the task at hand.
In short if we act as we share a common endavour, as we really do, then we have a good chance to survive.
When imagining and acting towards a common goal it is important to bear in mind that our existence is cocreated. Our ideas transform our surroundings and the surroundings transforms us so therefore we should be mindful in what we create. Flourishing within limits require us to transform and create institutions that are aligned with our goals, based on our understanding of human beings and their physical environment.
A good way to start would be inspired by how nature with its ecosystems organizes itself in collaborative networks of networks sharing a common goal and build our human societies and institutions on what Jeremy Rifkin calls biosphere politics. Its worth quoting here:
“Geopolitics has always been based on the assumption that the environment is a giant battleground – a war of all against all - where we fight with one another to secure resources to ensure our individual survival. Biosphere, by contrast, is based on the idea that the Earth is like a living organism made of interdependent relationships and that we each survive by stewarding the larger communities of which we are a part”
Through history we have organized ourselves in different ways to solve certain problems be it in civic organizations, companies, municipalities, governments or international organization. The idea of doing things together with other, for a common goal resonates well with our biological disposition for cooperation and empathy.
