Since mankind first started branching off into separate communities and began forming tribes and nations, there have been religious sects, cults, ethnic and racial groups that have established communities based on a dominant feature or characteristic the majority or whole share. Often these groups were formed on desolate pieces of land acquired after migrating from an area of persecution or heavily opposing views but mostly they are formed because a cultic entity wished to establish a utopian community with laws based on their ideology or religious affiliation. Most if not all of these projects end in failure due to the basic rights and needs of the people being sucked away slowly by the unholy trinity of tyranny, priesthood, and capitalism which rears its ugly head in every single nation that comes into existence. In modern times establishing a physical nation is well near impossible and communities can be formed with our advanced communication techniques (the internet). This well known fact clearly confirms an abstract community based on common goal and ambition is far more practical and realistic, not to enforce laws but to work and contribute towards a certain ideology or purpose negating the need of a physical nation to carry this out. This is the main difference between The Community for Betterment and nations established in the past and in present times; that a group of people do not need land or a country to be unified community.

 

We are united and one in purpose, ambition, and goal regardless of whether we pledge to a group that professes it or not. One may ask then, "Since this refutes the necessity of a physical nation to be united in ideology doesn't this also refute the necessity of the community at whole? Shouldn't anybody who agrees with the ideology of our community be united with the rest of those who profess the ideology of contributing to the welfare of humanity for the sake of unity and peace, regardless of whether he recognizes or has knowledge of the community or not?" This is a good question but fails to take into consideration that the community recognizes the people it has mentioned and does not require lip service or knowledge of the community to be a part of it. The basic goal, purpose, and ambition of The Community for Betterment is to bring unity and peace throughout the world, brought forth from self-sacrifice and sharing resources for the good of humanity.

 

Unity and peace are the main goals to be achieved which means you will have to donate your wealth, time, and energy into contributing to establishing a program based on increasing living standards of all whether physically or mentally. Consider a rich man who buys dinner for 200 starving families and sits down to eat the same food with them; can he ever be united with the one sitting at a glass table eating steak without a second thought or care for others? What if the former had no idea of the principles of unity, collective peace, and welfare and the latter believed in such? The latter that has said he regards the welfare of others, clearly negates this with his actions and the former clearly accepts this ideology with his actions therefore is united in the ideology with others who believe in it and act it out. With this, the program can clearly be seen as an attempt to strengthen and encourage efforts to benefit humanity which the beliefs of unity and collective peace can clearly be seen though. In other words we see all those that believe and act out the ideology and those who just act out an ideology without any knowledge of it as far more united then those who just believe in it.
