Only The Perfect Society Brings Out The Best In Every Individual

Word Count: 1713 |

Competition (including fair and unfair competitions) is a typical feature of our society. The purpose of this essay is to analyse a competitive society and to find the best way for development. The present exposition is based on researches into real modern life.

By striving for escaping from a daily tedium, a routine and a standstill (i.e. a monotonous life), people create and always recreate time after time a stimulus (the so-called success for success’s sake). The success for success’s sake means to fulfil a given aim and after that to put into practice the second one, the third and so on… In order to be happy, a given person have to make many other people unhappy in our competitive society.
As human consciousness consists of common sense, feelings and animal instincts, common sense and feelings are subordinate to animal instincts. That is, in a competitive society, people develop their common sense and cultivate their feelings, but common sense and feelings are only tools of the animal instinct of predominance. Consequently, the success for success’s sake is, in fact, the concealed animal instinct of predominance. The competitive society is a social environment where a multitude of successes for success’s sake act. As the success for success’s sake is the animal instinct of predominance, the competitive society is equal to a jungle and the competition is the law of the jungle.
People who have already become rulers aspire to a frantic preservation of their power. As striving for keeping their power for themselves and passing on their top secret supreme professional knowledge and experience only to their own overrated ‘golden’ progeny, the rulers trifle gloatingly with the dooms of the other people and decide fates for most of the rest. The rulers put all sorts of restrictions on freedom of most of the other people by means of created laws and rules. In this way, the rulers evade successfully these laws and rules, but most of the rest are not allowed to develop into chosen from the rest people professions.
Every child dreams of a given profession. But when for one reason or another (economic, political, etc.) their dreams are intentionally or unintentionally dashed, the grown up adolescents choose to prepare for another profession. When these expectations are totally shattered again, young people attempt to master any other profession. But when their plans are completely spoilt (directly or indirectly) once again, many young people get into a ‘dead-end street’.
Even good-natured, very ambitious and strong-willed young people are at a loss on deliberately barred by the rulers good ways. And these young people are forced tendentiously to demonstrate their strong-mindednesses getting into bad ways, i.e. to become criminals (Mafiosi, terrorists, etc.) That is, the egotism and the malice of the obsessed by an infinite covetousness rulers create criminals and, after that, these criminals are hypocritically anathemized by the rulers.
Consequently, the struggle of the rulers against the criminals is not a struggle between good and evil, but it is a struggle between big evil and little evil. As only evil participates in this struggle, only evil has been a victor in societies over the centuries, while good has been served as a hypocritical ‘screen’.
Competition often leads to change of rolls (i.e. Mafiosi can become rulers and rulers can become Mafiosi), but the status quo keeps its place. Therefore, the level of criminality is in direct proportion to the rate of the competition.
Army, police, the judicial power, etc. (in our competitive society) are created in order to ‘guarantee the public peace and security’. But only the fact, that these institutions exist, is a bit of evidence that our society is felonious.
Imagine, that army, police and the judicial power are no longer necessary (i.e. if everyone is good and honest, and if there is not any violence and military operation). Then army leaders, policemen and people of the judicial power will create artificially sham ‘military operations’ and feigned ‘criminal acts’ with the sole purpose of retaining their own professional prestige and social status by all means. That is why, as long as these institutions exist, there will always be criminality.
Many other of the so-called prestigious professions are based on social defects, as well…

All pseudo-political systems (such as fascism, socialism, communism, democracy, etc.) are incorrect, because they represent people as masters of Nature. It is absolutely ridiculous, because people did not create Nature, but Nature created people!
Religions and religious sects are wrong, too. They represent people as spiritual creations, but ignore their biological nature. Besides, people have to believe in unknown forces.
Philosophical doctrines tend to balance these two extremes, but, unfortunately, without any success. Because philosophical doctrines are like an enormous multitude of fairground mirrors (that distort shapes), where there is not only one – the normal mirror (i.e. the truth)…
In order to be transformed into a perfect one, our competitive society has to regulate itself (without any imperfect laws, but on the basis of harmony, freedom and love among people and, also morality, self-consciousness, self-discipline and self-criticism of every individual).
Nowadays, mankind develops impetuously in the spheres of economics, technologies and languages, but, unfortunately, mankind fails headlong in moral aspect.
That is, in our competitive society, common sense and feelings are subordinate to animal instincts. Only in a Perfect society feelings and animal instincts are subordinate to common sense.
Perfect society (The stimulus is the ambition for perfection, based on Higher social harmony.):
The scheme is as follows:
1st stage (Entrance): Higher social harmony (admiration, generosity, altruism)
2nd stage: Love
3rd stage: Peace
4th stage: Freedom
5th stage: Harmony (between society and Nature)
6th stage: Perfection

Our competitive society (The stimulus is the success for success’s sake, based on competition between particular individuals or groups of individuals.):
The scheme is as follows (in a vicious circle):
1st stage (Entrance): Competition (envy, greediness, egotism)
2nd stage: Hatred
3rd stage: War (military, political, psychological, etc.)
4th stage: Slavery
5th stage: Disharmony (between society and Nature)
6th stage: Imperfection
7th stage: (the same as the 1st stage)
and so on…

In the Perfect society one of the most important principles is the harmony between society and Nature (it is connected with the ideas of ‘Green Peace’). People have to live harmoniously (i.e. according to the laws of Nature). That is, people must not try to conquer Nature at any rate…
The Perfect society is not connected with democracy because no one from the good-natured, honest, clever, ambitious and strong-willed people is an unnecessary and downtrodden unemployed.
The Perfect society is not connected with communism because the Perfect society denies emphatically a rule of the broad masses of people and rejects the party nomenclature. According to the ideas of Perfect society, individuals are not equal and only good natured, honest, clever, ambitious and strong-willed people have to develop (but everyone is engaged in activities which he or she does best for public benefit according to their own vocation).
The Perfect society is not connected with anarchy because no one is irresponsible and nobody lives aimlessly.
The Perfect society is as a perfect clockwork, where everybody has their roles, functions and tasks. That is, professions and specialities are according to the wishes of every individual (i.e. everybody chooses and practises just this profession that follows their own calling under the conditions of the Perfect society). The professional post of every individual is according to their age (i.e. the priority of seniority and wisdom) and according to their potentials (intellectual, physical, psychical, etc.)
For instance, in the economy of the Perfect society, in contradistinction from the democratic market economy, 10 people do not compete for 1 professional post.
For example, in the economy of the Perfect society, in contradistinction from the socialist or communist planned economy, 10 people are not appointed unnecessarily to 10 professional posts according to any kind of artificial plans.
And what is more, in the Perfect society, in order to hold a high post in their profession, that follows their own vocation, a person does not compete with other people, but everyone’s qualities are compared with the standard of perfection. In this way, nobody loses anything because of the successes of other people, but everybody earns or does not earn depending on his/her own results, compared with the standard of perfection. That is, several people, working as a team, can hold only one post and, also, only one person can hold several posts, working with several different teams. But no one is unemployed and there is not competition between particular individuals.
Both the planned and market economies have already become anachronisms. Only the Perfect economy is the economy of the future.
Perfectionists (they are not perfect people because no one from the human beings is perfect now, but they are people who want to live in the Perfect society) reckon that, unfortunately, nowadays most people are not matured enough and, consequently, are not ready to live in the Perfect society yet. Because now most people take the status quo (i.e. our competitive society) for granted. In order to achieve the Perfect society, there will be a very prolonged natural evolution with a stimulus – the ambition for perfection in conditions of living with freedom and love…

People who adore very much both the fair and unfair cruel competitions say ‘FREEDOM is an illusion and LOVE is a delusion!’ But it is not true because FREEDOM and LOVE exist, indeed!!! Only FREEDOM and LOVE bring out the best in every individual…

Allegory Of American Pie By Don Mc Lean

Ask anyone what was the defining moment in the rock history of the 1960s was and all you will get is a one word answer: Woodstock. The three day rock festival that defined an era was only one of many music festivals of the '60s. But Woodstock has come to symbolize, "an era of peaceful, free- loving, drug- taking hippie youth, carefree before harsher realities hit..." (Layman 40). The Woodstock festival ended a century filled with many metamorphoses of rock'n'roll, from the era of pop music to the rebirth of folk music to the invention of acid rock. But some cynics say that rock'n'roll died with the death of Buddy Holly before the 60s even began. One such person is Don McLean. The poet behind the haunting epic song about the death of 'danceable' music, McLean wrote the ever popular song, "American Pie" (appendix 1). The most important song in rock'n'roll history, "American Pie", is the song about the demise of rock'n'roll after Buddy Holly's death and the heathenism of rock that resulted. Although McLean himself won't reveal any symbolism in his songs, "American Pie" is one of the most analyzed pieces of literature in modern society. Although not all of its secrets have been revealed, many "scholars" of the sixties will agree that the mystery of this song is one of the reasons it has become so successful- everyone wants to know the meanings of its allegories. Proof of "American Pie's" truth lies in the allegory of the song. Many People enjoy the song but have no idea what it means- Who is the Jester? What is the levee? When the deeper story is found, the importance of the song is unearthed. "American Pie" is not only a song, it is an epic poem about the course of rock'n'roll...

Carl Orffs Philosophies In Music Education

While Carl Orff is a very seminal composer of the 20th century, his greatest success and influence has been in the field of Music Education. Born on July 10th in Munich, Germany in 1895, Orff refused to speak about his past almost as if he were ashamed of it. What we do know, however, is that Orff came from a Bavarian family who was very active in the German military. His father's regiment band would often play through some of the young Orff's first attempts at composing. Although Orff was adamant about the secrecy of his past, Moser's Musik Lexicon says that he studied in the Munich Academy of Music until 1914. Orff then served in the military in the first world war. After the war, he held various positions in the Mannheim and Darmstadt opera houses then returned home to Munich to further study music. In 1925, and for the rest of his life, Orff was the head of a department and co-founder of the Guenther School for gymnastics, music, and dance in Munich where he worked with musical beginners. This is where he developed his Music Education theories. In 1937, Orff's Carmina Burana premiered in Frankfurt, Germany. Needless to say, it was a great success. With the success of Carmina Burana, Orff orphaned all of his previous works except for Catulli Carmina and the En trata which were rewritten to be acceptable by Orff. One of Orff's most admired composers was Monteverdi. In fact, much of Orff's work was based on ancient material. Orff said: I am often asked why I nearly always select old material, fairy tales and legends for my stage works. I do not look upon them as old, but rather as valid material. The time element disappears, and only the spiritual power remains. My...

Johann Sebastian Bach Biography

Throughout the history of music, many great composers, theorists, and instrumentalists have left indelible marks and influences that people today look back on to admire and aspire to. No exception to this idiom is Johann Sebastian Bach, whose impact on music was unforgettable to say the least. People today look back to his writings and works to both learn and admire. He truly can be considered a music history great. Bach, who came from a family of over 53 musicians, was nothing short of a virtuosic instrumentalist as well as a masterful composer. Born in Eisenach, Germany, on March 21, 1685, he was the son of a masterful violinist, Johann Ambrosius Bach, who taught his son the basic skills for string playing. Along with this string playing, Bach began to play the organ which is the instrument he would later on be noted for in history. His instruction on the organ came from the player at Eisenach's most important church. He instructed the young boy rather rigorously until his skills surpassed anyone?s expectations for someone of such a young age. Bach suffered early trauma when his parents died in 1695. He went to go live with his older brother, Johann Christoph, who also was a professional organist at Ohrdruf. He continued his younger brother's education on that instrument, as well as introducing him to the harpsichord. The rigorous training on these instruments combined with Bach?s masterful skill paid off for him at an early age. After several years of studying with his older brother, he received a scholarship to study in Luneberg, Germany, which is located on the northern tip of the country. As a result, he left his brother?s tutelage and went to go and study there. The teenage years brought Bach to several parts of Germany where he...


Michelangelo was pessimistic in his poetry and an optimist in his artwork. Michelangelo?s artwork consisted of paintings and sculptures that showed humanity in it?s natural state. Michelangelo?s poetry was pessimistic in his response to Strazzi even though he was complementing him. Michelangelo?s sculpture brought out his optimism. Michelangelo was optimistic in completing The Tomb of Pope Julius II and persevered through it?s many revisions trying to complete his vision. Sculpture was Michelangelo?s main goal and the love of his life. Since his art portrayed both optimism and pessimism, Michelangelo was in touch with his positive and negative sides, showing that he had a great and stable personality. Michelangelo?s artwork consisted of paintings and sculptures that showed humanity in it?s natural state. Michelangelo Buonarroti was called to Rome in 1505 by Pope Julius II to create for him a monumental tomb. We have no clear sense of what the tomb was to look like, since over the years it went through at least five conceptual revisions. The tomb was to have three levels; the bottom level was to have sculpted figures representing Victory and bond slaves. The second level was to have statues of Moses and Saint Paul as well as symbolic figures of the active and contemplative life- representative of the human striving for, and reception of, knowledge. The third level, it is assumed, was to have an effigy of the deceased pope. The tomb of Pope Julius II was never finished. What was finished of the tomb represents a twenty-year span of frustrating delays and revised schemes. Michelangelo had hardly begun work on the pope?s tomb when Julius commanded him to fresco the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel to complete the work done in the previous century under Sixtus IV. The overall organization consists of four large triangles at...

Oscar Wilde

Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde was born in Dublin Ireland on October 16, 1854. He is one of the most talented and most controversial writers of his time. He was well known for his wit, flamboyance, and creative genius and with his little dramatic training showing his natural talent for stage and theatre. He is termed a martyr by some and may be the first true self-publicist and was known for his style of dress and odd behavior. Wilde, 1882 His Father, William Wilde, was a highly accredited doctor and his mother, Jane Francesca Elgee, was a writer of revolutionary poems. Oscar had a brother William Charles Kingsbury along with his father's three illegitimate children, Henry, Emily, and Mary. His sister, Isola Emily Francesca died in 1867 at only ten years of age from a sudden fever, greatly affecting Oscar and his family. He kept a lock of her hair in an envelope and later wrote the poem 'Requiescat' in her memory. Oscar and his brother William both attended the Protora Royal School at Enniskillen. He had little in common with the other children. He disliked games and took more interest in flowers and sunsets. He was extremely passionate about anything that had to do with ancient Greece and with Classics. Wilde during school years In 1871, he was awarded a Royal School Scholarship to Trinity College in Dublin and received many awards and earned the highest honor the college offered to an undergraduate, the Foundation Scholarship. In 1874, he also won the College's Berkley Gold Medal for Greek and was awarded a Demyship to Magdalen College, Oxford. After graduating from Oxford, Oscar moved to London with his friend Frank Miles, a well-known portrait painter of the time. In 1878 his poem Ravenna was published, for which he won the...

The History Of Greek Theater

Theater and drama in Ancient Greece took form in about 5th century BCE, with the Sopocles, the great writer of tragedy. In his plays and those of the same genre, heroes and the ideals of life were depicted and glorified. It was believed that man should live for honor and fame, his action was courageous and glorious and his life would climax in a great and noble death. Originally, the hero's recognition was created by selfish behaviors and little thought of service to others. As the Greeks grew toward city-states and colonization, it became the destiny and ambition of the hero to gain honor by serving his city. The second major characteristic of the early Greek world was the supernatural. The two worlds were not separate, as the gods lived in the same world as the men, and they interfered in the men's lives as they chose to. It was the gods who sent suffering and evil to men. In the plays of Sophocles, the gods brought about the hero's downfall because of a tragic flaw in the character of the hero. In Greek tragedy, suffering brought knowledge of worldly matters and of the individual. Aristotle attempted to explain how an audience could observe tragic events and still have a pleasurable experience. Aristotle, by searching the works of writers of Greek tragedy, Aeschulus, Euripides and Sophocles (whose Oedipus Rex he considered the finest of all Greek tragedies), arrived at his definition of tragedy. This explanation has a profound influence for more than twenty centuries on those writing tragedies, most significantly Shakespeare. Aristotle's analysis of tragedy began with a description of the effect such a work had on the audience as a "catharsis" or purging of the emotions. He decided that catharsis was the purging of two specific emotions, pity and...

Scholarship Essay About Goals

Ever since I was a young kid I have always been interested with aircraft. I was so curious of how airplane's fly. I remember taking my toys apart to see how it works. As a kid I wanted to go to the airport to watch the airplanes land and fly and pondered how this happens. Other kids wanted to go to the amusement places. As I grew older I became more and more interested in aircraft and the technology behind it. I always involved myself with aviation early on. I read books and magazines on aviation, took museum tours, built model airplanes. When I was younger my father would take me to aircraft repair facilities where I would watch in great fascination. In my teens, went up to the military bases and befriended many soldiers involved with aircraft and asked them numerous questions. I got to meet many aeronautics engineers and borrowed their old textbooks and read them till the wee hours of the morning. As technology improved with information superhighway, I logged on the web. Stayed up for hours and hours searching through web pages and web pages of information about aircraft and technology. I started my elementary school in the Philippines, then we moved to U.S. and continued my high school education and graduated.

Circus Circus Enterprises Case Studies

Executive Summary: Circus Circus Enterprises is a leader and will continue to be in the gaming industry. In recent years, they have seen a decline in profit and revenue; management tends to blame the decrease on continuing disruptions from remodeling, expansion, and increased competition.

Effect Of Civil War On American Economy

The Economies of the North and South, 1861-1865 In 1861, a great war in American history began. It was a civil war between the north and south that was by no means civil. This war would have great repercussions upon the economy of this country and the states within it. The American Civil War began with secession, creating a divided union of sorts, and sparked an incredibly cataclysmic four years. Although the actual war began with secession, this was not the only driving force. The economy of the Southern states, the Confederacy, greatly if not entirely depended on the institution of slavery. The Confederacy was heavily reliant on agriculture, and they used the profits made from the sale of such raw materials to purchase finished goods to use and enjoy. Their major export was cotton, which thrived on the warm river deltas and could easily be shipped to major ocean ports from towns on the Mississippi and numerous river cities. Slavery was a key part of this, as slaves were the ones who harvested and planted the cotton. Being such an enormous unpaid work force, the profits made were extraordinarily high and the price for the unfinished goods drastically low in comparison; especially since he invention of the cotton gin in 1793 which made the work all that much easier and quicker. In contrast, the economical structure of the Northern states, the Union, was vastly dependent on industry. Slavery did not exist in most of the Union, as there was no demand for it due to the type of industrial development taking place. As the Union had a paid work force, the profits made were lower and the cost of the finished manufactured item higher. In turn, the Union used the profits and purchased raw materials to use. This cycle...

Evaluation Of The Effectiveness Of Trade Embargoes

Although I am a strong critic of the use and effectiveness of economic sanctions, such as trade embargoes, for the sake of this assignment, I will present both their theoretical advantages and their disadvantages based upon my research. Trade embargoes and blockades have traditionally been used to entice nations to alter their behavior or to punish them for certain behavior. The intentions behind these policies are generally noble, at least on the surface. However, these policies can have side effects. For example, FDR's blockade of raw materials against the Japanese in Manchuria in the 1930s arguably led to the bombing of Pearl Harbor, which resulted in U.S. involvement in World War II. The decades-long embargo against Cuba not only did not lead to the topple of the communist regime there, but may have strengthened Castro's hold on the island and has created animosity toward the United States in Latin America and much suffering by the people of Cuba. Various studies have concluded that embargoes and other economic sanctions generally have not been effective from a utilitarian or policy perspective, yet these policies continue. Evaluation of the effectiveness of Trade Embargoes Strengths Trade embargoes and other sanctions can give the sender government the appearance of taking strong measures in response to a given situation without resorting to violence. Sanctions can be imposed in conjunction with other measures to achieve conflict prevention and mitigation goals. Sanctions may be ineffective: goals may be too elusive, the means too gentle, or cooperation from other countries insufficient. It is usually difficult to determine whether embargoes were an effective deterrent against future misdeeds: embargoes may contribute to a successful outcome, but can rarely achieve ambitious objectives alone. Some regimes are highly resistant to external pressures to reform. At the same time, trade sanctions may narrow the...
