We Have No Choice But To Obey The Law Of Nature

Why does our further development have to take place on a new level and cannot occur using existing methods?

This is because all previous periods of development followed a singular direction that was increasingly ego-driven at the individual and societal levels. This development did not depend on an altruistic connection between us.

With each period, we would build yet another connection between us depending upon the level of our egoism which resulted in new laws, interconnections and agreements. This is how we made adjustments in our development.

But today, Nature is forcing us to establish a new level of global, interconnected human society, and whether we like it or not, we will have to obey this law of Nature.

The laws of nature will be the ones that outlive any man-made laws , unless we harmonise our laws with natures.
I have been proposing such a law or rather a tax system which incorporates nature and its laws at its heart.

Natural Resource Tax, (NRT), is a tax on the harmful use of all natural resources, and would replace all existing taxes except a death tax to redistribute wealth. All natural resources would have taxes according the the use to which they are used and the effects they have both on man environment and the planet as a whole.
The tax collected as near to source as possible would have benifits all round from reducing the overall tax burden, to making everyone in the consumer chain directly aware of the damage certain resouces are causing, by the price they would have to pay.
