If we live to ourselves, I can assure you, we will die of ourselves.

If
we live to ourselves, I can assure you, we will die of
ourselves.












Because
if the Russian do nuclear testing and they dump the radioactive stuff
into the sea, or the Japanese.









The
world is one big place and the air moves around and the waters move,
therefore living to yourself, your little isolated colony, your
little culture that you want to build, your little city that you
wanna build of people with
like-mindedness.












All
of that has no basis for survival, because in the event of
catastrophic failure you will be invaded by the minorities if they
don't have food, water or they way they want to
live.









You
can't find the answers by declaring a society democratic, you can
only find the answers by research and
development.









You
can't find the answers by putting in a hight moral character in
government, you can only find the answers by innovation; by studying
the systems and the problems, and working on methods of elevating
those problems, not through law, law is when you don't have a method
of solving a
problem.












The
people steal or hurt one another, you say: “It's against the law to
hurt somebody”.












Well,
when a person doesn't have the means to live by he's going to hurt
somebody to get that, the money or whatever they
need.












So
it isn't dealing with the problem, law is only avoiding a problem.
It's just a proclamation on the wall saying: “You don't do
this!”












It
doesn't work.












In
the long run, you might cause people to consider an action before
they take it, but all laws come into existence because of
scarcity.












It
is always difficult to imagine that.












When
there is scarcity of water people steal it, remove it, if not for
themselves, then for their children.












But
if you don't want people to steal water, you build an electric fence
around the water and this is the way to say






you
don't need to put signs “Don't steal water!” But those people
will die.












We
don't want to build a fence surrounding our country and say: “This
is the greatest country in the world, we gonna keep it that way.” We
depend on other
countries.












The
scientific method if applied socially will work.












It
doesn't attain perfection, it is just a far better system that any
other system that we've known today.












In
other words I'm not talking about Utopian society where everybody is
happy, there is no such condition.












All
social systems are in a state of evolution.


















An
established society is one that has found a way that worked for the
people in control of that society.









Whereas
all societies are emergent, constantly evolving, there is no such a
thing like attaining a sane world.












Sanity
depends on the acquisition of information and applying this
information to the well-being of all people and protecting the
environment.












That's
what I mean when I use the word “sanity”.












We
live in the environment that is so loused up, it is very difficult to
generate good feelings between people because they come from
different places with the different value systems and different
needs.












In
the society of the future, if someone asks me: ”Would everybody be
alike in your society?”












Yes,
in certain areas: they will love the Earth and take care of it, stake
their heads out when they meet another person with a different
culture and say: “Your values are different from mine, I'd like to
learn more about your way of
thinking”.








They
will be the same in that way. They will be open to new ideas, learn
to listen to new ideas, ask relevant questions about ideas,- in those
areas they will be
alike.

Erroneously posted into the ToDo function.
Copied here so it doesn't get lost, although it would be much more useful formatted as a time-stamped SRT file. ;)


If we live to ourselves, I can assure you, we will die of ourselves. 若我們自顧自地過活,我跟你保證,那就是在自找死路。

Because if the Russian do nuclear testing and they dump the radioactive stuff into the sea, or the Japanese. 想想看,要是俄羅斯人核子試驗後,把放射性物質丟進海裡,或像日本那樣...

The world is one big place and the air moves around and the waters move, therefore living to yourself, your little isolated colony, your little culture that you want to build, your little city that you wanna build of people with like-mindedness. 空氣與水流動在同一個廣大的世界裡,所以自顧自地活,在又小又封閉的殖民地建立你們心目中的渺小文化,與志同道合的人打造你們的渺小城市,

All of that has no basis for survival, because in the event of catastrophic failure you will be invaded by the minorities if they don't have food, water or they way they want to live.這些都不是生存的基礎,因為一旦發生重大災變,你們就會被少數人入侵 ─如果他們失去了食物、水和賴以維生的方式。

You can't find the answers by declaring a society democratic, you can only find the answers by research and development. 創建民主社會也不是解決之道,唯有研發才是解決之道。

You can't find the answers by putting in a hight moral character in government, you can only find the answers by innovation; by studying the systems and the problems, and working on methods of elevating those problems, not through law, law is when you don't have a method of solving a problem. 把德高望重的人送進政府也不是辦法,唯有創新才是辦法;唯有研究體系和問題,再按部就班解決問題才是出路,而不是透過法律;缺乏解決問題的方法,才需要法律。

The people steal or hurt one another, you say: “It's against the law to hurt somebody”. 人們偷竊或傷害彼此,你說「傷人是犯法的」。

Well, when a person doesn't have the means to live by he's going to hurt somebody to get that, the money or whatever they need. 但是當一個人活不下去,他就可能為了生存而謀財害命。

So it isn't dealing with the problem, law is only avoiding a problem. It's just a proclamation on the wall saying: “You don't do this!” 所以法律不能處理問題,它只是在迴避問題,只是在牆上佈告:「你不准做!」

It doesn't work. 這沒有用。

In the long run, you might cause people to consider an action before they take it, but all laws come into existence because of scarcity. 長期而言,你或許能讓人三思而後行;但一切法律皆因匱乏而存在。

It is always difficult to imagine that. 總是難以想像

When there is scarcity of water people steal it, remove it, if not for themselves, then for their children. 缺水的時候,人們會偷水搶水,就算不是為了自己,也是為了下一代。

But if you don't want people to steal water, you build an electric fence around the water and this is the way to say -若你不希望水被偷走,你就在水源周圍設置電圍籬,這就是說─

you don't need to put signs “Don't steal water!” But those people will die. 你不需要「嚴禁偷水」的標語。但是這樣會電死人,

So we don't want to do that. 我們並不想這麼做。

We don't want to build a fence surrounding our country and say: “This is the greatest country in the world, we gonna keep it that way.” We depend on other countries.我們不想沿著國界架設圍籬並說「這是世上最偉大的國家,我們就是要這樣下去」。我們依賴其他國家。

The scientific method if applied socially will work. 將科學方法應用在社會上是可行的。

It doesn't attain perfection, it is just a far better system that any other system that we've known today. 這個體系並非完美,只是遠優於我們已知的任何體系。

In other words I'm not talking about Utopian society where everybody is happy, there is no such condition. 換言之,我說的不是皆大歡喜的烏托邦社會,那是不可能的。

All social systems are in a state of evolution. 一切社會體系都在演進。

An established society is one that has found a way that worked for the people in control of that society. 既定的社會體系 都能找到一種方式讓人們可以控制該社會並運轉下去。

Whereas all societies are emergent, constantly evolving, there is no such a thing like attaining a sane world. 所有的社會都在不斷形成演變,沒有「完全理智的世界」這種東西。

Sanity depends on the acquisition of information and applying this information to the well-being of all people and protecting the environment. 「理智」仰賴資訊的取得,並將資訊用於所有人的福祉及環境的保護。

That's what I mean when I use the word “sanity”. 這才是我所謂的「理智」。

We live in the environment that is so loused up, it is very difficult to generate good feelings between people because they come from different places with the different value systems and different needs. 我們的環境已被高度扭曲,人們很難對彼此產生善意,因為大家來自不同的地區,有著不同的價值體系和需求。

In the society of the future, if someone asks me: ”Would everybody be alike in your society?” 至於未來的社會,有人問我「在你的社會裡,會不會大家都一個樣?」

Yes, in certain areas: they will love the Earth and take care of it, stake their heads out when they meet another person with a different culture and say: “Your values are different from mine, I'd like to learn more about your way of thinking”.是的,在某些方面:他們都會愛地球、照顧地球;都會向不同文化的人伸出友誼之手,並說「你的價值觀跟我不同,我想多學學你的思維模式」。

They will be the same in that way. They will be open to new ideas, learn to listen to new ideas, ask relevant questions about ideas,- in those areas they will be alike.他們在這方面會一樣。他們會對新觀念保持開放,會學著聆聽新想法並提出相應的問題。對,他們在這些方面是一個樣沒錯。
