True core problem:
Humans believing problems could be solved, the world could be better, by using force(government)WITHOUT causing evil long term consequences.
Unknowing that they use force when:
giving rights to others they do not have themselves, (murder, steal...)violating equality.
A purely VOLUNTARY society
Small and very small "countries", local voluntary interest groups, maximum competition, free markets....SECESSION is positive progress!
All that can only happen when humans reject assumed authority = governments = inequality = use of force other than in actual self defense.
In conclusion the real progress takes place in waking up one's own awareness, EDUCATION ON HOW FREEDOM & PEACE WORK BEST, being a role model....IT IS A SPIRITUAL PATH AND NO OTHER!
