If the human is to ever have a culture that offers equal opportunity for life satisfaction to each, the infrastructure of that society must be uniform. Certain groups of people must not be singled out for unique treatment. Others should not get particular favors. And others should not be deprived of equal opportunity. Uniformity and equality become required parameters for any universal function. This can only be obtained by adopting widespread standards. Those standards become a part of the infrastructure that every person can depend on. These can't be established subjectively, where the plight of each and every social group has separate planning. And those standards must be developed objectively (without subjective reference). How can this be done?
Admittedly, it is an extremely difficult task in a culture which caters to the individual. But then the cultural infrastructure should not be fashioned for the individual, it should be fashioned for the welfare and advancement of the species. It should not specify what fits the individual, but what will be the best for the welfare and advancement of the species. Modern people will object strongly to such an idea, in fear of losing personal freedom. This should not be. A cultural infrastructure only contains those social functions which must be uniform, such as the basic requirements for justice, education and governance and minimum living standards.
Individual freedoms which do not conflict with species welfare would still be optional. This then is the objective approach. To group all mankind into one tribe. To ignore current ethnic and racial divisions. To establish goals, procedures, processes and timetables for the species, leaving open the individual freedoms required for personal satisfaction. Then build the necessary cultural functions to meet these objectives. And, finally, vow to be patient, caring and forgiving during the transition.
So it takes 500 years. These are species matters, and the species, we hope, is immortal...
