Collectivity, the - guarantee of safety for all individuals

Being able to eat, clothe oneself, have a place to live, earn money, marry and have one or two children - such are most human beings' concerns. Everything revolves around their own gratification and personal well-being. From time to time, of course, they do something for society, but on the whole they work to benefit themselves. And yet, whether they like it or not, they are part of a collectivity, and if a revolution, a riot or a war broke out in this collectivity, their personal property could not be safe. So, even when they have well and truly settled their own affairs, actually they are never settled, because some inconvenience or other can always arise out of the collectivity and ruin everything. History is full of such examples! So many important people, who were so powerful and rich it seemed nothing could touch them, have ended up losing everything, even their life, when there has been social unrest. And so it is up to each person to think how they can contribute to improving collective life. It is the only way to be safe. Because only the collective life, which includes every individual, can guarantee safety and abundance.
