The Revolution of the 21st Century: The Engine of Desires


(Continued from “Revolution of the 21st Century: Rich Man, Poor Man”)

First of all, society should be viewed through the prism of its development “on the crest of” egoism, meaning the desire to enjoy, which is our nature. This desire is constantly growing, increasing in various forms and directions. As a consequence, the various historical stages alternate with each other, and we are witnessing their dynamics.

Once people were glad to be in slavery because it provided food and housing and they never dreamed of anything more. Later, slaves struggled with the once-coveted yoke, eager to become free people. Let it be more difficult, but the man could not remain in captivity. Thus, our desire to enjoy gradually undergoes internal transformations, changing the order of priorities.

In this way, freedom is not the final destination. Indeed, a person needs a job to support himself. And here he is again enslaved no longer as a slave but as a worker, not bound and free to move. Thus, by increasing both quantitatively and qualitatively, our egoism drives the changes in our lives.
