Seize The Opportunity

As mentioned before, a theory is essentially an idea with a set of assumptions that seeks to explain everything. In turn, a theory is derived from a natural law that is derived from the observation and survey of nature and reality, with reality being the totality of all things which exist. But natural laws are underpinned by principles. Thus, theories are embedded with a core principle which in turn explains everything.

On one hand, there is a physical science theory which explains everything, and on the other hand there is a social science theory which explains everything. On the physical sciences side, there is the “Theory of Synchronicity,” which embeds the principle of underlying cause and effect that fosters interconnection and interrelatedness between actions and events that may seem disparate. Thus, in order to understand actions and events as well as the interconnection and interrelatedness between these actions and events, we must first understand cause and effect.

On the social sciences side, the theory which explains everything is “economic interdependence theory.” Interdependence between peoples and nations is fostered through economic interdependence theory by virtue of its core principle, namely, the global ‘Division of Labor.’ From a Durkheimian perspective, international society — and thus the global division of labor — imposes its ends and objectives on the individual, whereas the Weberian perspective emphasizes psychology and the impact of individual ideas on the international system.

The Durkheimian “collective end” of the global division of labor is global order and peace. One should assume that there will always be a certain level of crime in various places. But the risk of crime is minimized by the “collective end,” namely, order and peace. As a result, an individual who has self-actualized through an “individuation process” can acquire the general and ‘unitive’ knowledge needed to oversee and manage the global division of labor — and thus the international system.

Or, an individual can acquire specialized knowledge to perform a specific and specialized role in the global division of labor. But as mentioned before, knowledge and information are unitive by nature. Thus, the task of a fully functional and self-actualized individual — who in turn belongs to just one percent of the world’s population — is to oversee and manage the global division of labor with the aim of preserving global order and peace. Managing and preserving global order and peace is perhaps interchangeable with the management of people.

Thus, an incredible amount of care, patience, and love is required for such a task. But by getting bogged down in what the late Zbigniew Brzezinski called the “global ghettos” — namely, Israel, Palestine, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Libya, Yemen, and Afghanistan — America’s role in the global division of labor has diminished by becoming cheap, low-class, sleazy, and trashy. And with a diminished role in the global division of labor, America’s ability to uphold a diplomatic and military-security framework for global order and peace has also diminished to a significant degree.

Another quality needed for the oversight and management of the global division of labor is the ability to traverse both the elite and popular classes. Understanding both the sensibilities of the elites as well as the sensibilities of regular people is perhaps the most important quality needed for such a task. Rarely will one find an individual who can traverse both classes and understand the sensibilities of both elites and regular people. And if you find an individual or individuals who have this ability, seize the opportunity to make good use out of them.
