The Shared State could be thought of as a state of mind mirrored in many cities, countries and cultures at once. It could be thought of as a political state where people all have the same idea, because their community isn’t fixed within the borders of a country. Or it could be thought of as a set of shared circumstances or experiences that breeds a particular train of thought, and particular responses.
It’s the ability to share our objection to the circumstances of our lives with others, and find those circumstances repeated around the world. An ocean of humanity with exactly the same problems day-to-day from exactly the same sources.
The Shared State has come into existence because of the concentrated forces that attack every aspect of our lives, and the very idea of humanity. Because we all face the same problems, the same threats, and the same inability to alter our circumstances, the solution to all these factors also has to be the same. There cannot be multiple solutions to this problem. There can only be one solution that is powerful enough to combat the forces ranged against humanity, That solution has to have the opposite effect to those arrayed against it to have any hope of success. Therefore the only real solution is the single idea of community. The idea that we are a community, and the only meaningful work we do is towards the realisation of that community.
Money, central government, competition and many other factors built into our present society all undermine a principal motivation of humanity, which is to live and operate as a community, which tries to provide for its own needs, growth and future. The Shared State is a single solution that concentrates the energy and will of billions toward the natural goal of building a shared community. This community is a natural extension of the individual. It is a natural human progression that is in the process of spanning the planet. We are all part of this progression whether we realise it or not.
It may seem impossible to change the course of our lives let alone extract ourselves from the rut that money, and competition have thrown us into, but if we can alter the basics of what people believe in and show something better, then we really have changed humanity, for humanity is no more or less than what we think of ourselves…
