What are Appropriate Attitudes, Values and Beliefs

Appropriate attitudes, values and beliefs are those which result in conduct consistent with the evolution of an economically viable, ecologically sustainable and socially just global civilization.

A sustainable global civilization is defined as a modern, science and technology based international civilization that can educate, employ and satisfy the reasonable needs, wants and potential of all its people in perpetuity, through division of labour and mutual service, without depleting limited natural resources and amenities for future generations.

An economically viable and ecologically sustainable civilization depends on appropriate human conduct. Human conduct is governed by human attitudes, values and beliefs. These are learned over the course of a lifetime, undergoing changes as circumstances, needs and wants change. They can be learned faster and less painfully if they are taught, rather than learned from one's mistakes.

To achieve the conduct that results in an economically viable, ecologically sustainable and socially just civilization that can satisfy the reasonable needs, wants and potential of its people, it is necessary for the majority of its people to develop a form of moral conduct based on mutual service, with the goal of satisfying the reasonable needs of its people in perpetuity.

That essentially involves learning how things work in a modern civilization and why compassion, cooperative conduct and mutual service is essential. It involves learning from a young age in a family environment why it is necessary to learn skills in order to help satisfy the reasonable needs, wants and potential of others, as well as one's own; in order to contribute to one's group, earn a living, self-respect and the respect of others.

Complex goals with multiple, complex impediments and threats are never achieved by accident. They have to be defined, analyzed and actively pursued. If an economically viable and sustainable civilization is not defined as a goal it cannot be achieved. If it not achieved, humanity is doomed to failure, unnecessary suffering and perhaps extinction.

One of the necessary steps to develop appropriate attitudes, values and beliefs is government that has economically viable, ecologically sustainable and socially just global civilization as its constitutionally defined goal and the basis for all laws, regulations, education and appropriate human conduct.
