Isn't it in human nature to be selfish, greedy and to dominate others?


It is important to distinguish between human nature and human behaviour. While it is within human nature to be curious and to strive for achievement, it depends on the environment as to what form and thus human behaviour this intrinsic human motivation will take. The current economic system instills a false sense of scarcity and fear of one another. In a Technate, the economic and political processes would allow for material abundance and trust between humans. Therefore, their intrinsic motivation would result in creativity and cooperation. It can hardly be estimated what feats mankind could achieve under these circumstances.
