We live in a duality. We have free will therefore we are individuals unlike ants or bees. We live in clusters and have extensive brain areas dedicated to social skills. Desire for community drives all social interaction outside of immediate survival needs.
The only future that will work for humans as a species must take these factors into account.
All social cultures have hierarchical structures.
The key to solving this dilemma seems is to flatten the hierarchical structure. But socialist fascism, the marriage of government and industry, in America, Germany, Italy, Britain and the Soviet Union led to World War II. It doesn’t seem that individuals had much say in that war.
What you need is benevolent leaders. If the leaders are ponerologically compromised then the social culture will appear exactly as the weticko culture we see around us.
