One Human Society

one human society

Today we live in a divisive and fragmented society where human beings continue to exploit, suppress, and kill each other for larger shares of resources on this planet. Even when there are no clear material advantages, people continue to exhibit biased and intolerant behavior that vilifies others due to their sex, gender, race, ethnicity, economic class, political affiliations, geographic residency, religious beliefs, or any other kind of difference.

These anti-social attitudes cause human suffering and undermine our social and economic institutions. It is time to stop tolerating this intolerance and bring humanity together. Prout proposes a step-wise approach to addressing this behavior in our society. First, we need to eliminate geo-sentiments, which arise when people develop strong attachments to the territories in which they live. These sentiments lead to local, national, and global conflicts. Second, the removal of socio-sentiments is necessary, since these sentiments cause social groups to build barriers between themselves, often resulting in misunderstandings, discrimination, and inter-group exploitation and violence. Finally, by adopting a new set of values called neohumanism, people will be able to nurture a deep feeling of love for humanity. This will help society unite around the goal of achieving the welfare of every individual, community, and nation and ultimately establishing one human society.
