It is no longer a secret to anyone that the era of global changes in society, and changes in oneself as a person, has begun. It is already obvious to many that society is now on the verge. As if frozen in a lie, deceit, inhumanity, a cold snow mass on a steep mountain slope, on which all our consumer civilization is stuck. Is this its pinnacle? The descent of the stress avalanche of public consciousness, provoked by climatic, economic, political, pandemic and other causes, is inevitable. The only question is the consequences. How can we humans now preempt our future? How can we all survive and minimize the risks of inevitable losses? There is a way out!
As you know, an avalanche can be caused by a slight push, even by pressure on the snow by a single person. But where will the general movement of society be directed? To the fatal abyss of egoism and pride, or in the direction of a full-flowing creative river that will give society a new form of existence and create favorable conditions for the revival of life for the next generations of our civilization? Who else if not you is able to change this vector! This article is about how to do this.

On May 11, 2019, an event of a global scale took place, which marked the beginning of the inevitable global transformations of the entire world community. For the first time in history, a large number of people from all over the world gathered together in an online conference "Society. The Last Chance" on the platform of ALLATRA International Public Movement. People openly and honestly discussed all of the most pressing issues that all of humanity is facing today. Most importantly, in addition to an open, truthful presentation of these issues as they really are, ways to solve these problems were also voiced. The result of this unprecedented event was the creation of a unique worldwide project of ALLATRA International Public Movement — "Creative Society". What makes it unique? First of all, this project is vital for our entire civilization. In fact, this is the only possible way out of the egoistic, consumerist dead-end of self-destruction in which humanity now finds itself. This precedent and the chain of events that followed helped to further strengthen my hope that all is not lost for me personally and for the entire humankind.
Since then, thanks to the joint efforts of participants of ALLATRA International Public Movement from different countries, who, just like me, were inspired by creative ideas, a lot has been done. A huge number of public surveys were conducted around the world, international online meetings and conferences were held, many interviews were filmed, interesting articles were published, and many other socially significant projects were implemented. Together, we really did a lot. But obviously not enough to reach everyone.
During this time, we talked to a huge number of people around the world, and all, really everyone we talked to said that they need the Creative society, it is important for them and they would like to live in such a world.
Throughout this time, I have been thinking about how to speed up the process of spreading information about the Creative Society around the world. How can we all unite and make our efforts even more effective? How to convey this information, this opportunity to all people on Earth? After all, time waits for no man! We are almost eight billion people already, and this applies to everyone. After all, if something is not done now, then in just a little while an avalanche of disasters will cover all of us. What's to be done?
My friends and I received answers to these questions during our conversation with the esteemed Igor Mikhailovich Danilov. As always, Igor Mikhailovich with great patience and kindness explained in detail the way out of the current situation in society, the essence and meaning of creating a Creative Society, which we want to share with all of you, our dear friends!
The most important thing is the goal! If there is a goal, everything makes sense, and if there is no goal, then everything else is meaningless. What is our goal? Our goal is to get out of this dead end of consumer society, which is in fact, a form of hidden slavery, a disguised slave society in which we all exist today as humanity, and start living as a Human, not as a beast. The main goal is to achieve and build an Ideal Society of spiritually free people, a society that would guarantee our future generations a worthy life, benefits, and spiritual and moral prosperity. Society of Love and Humanity, or as it is called in different religions — Eden. The society of the future, which already today changes you in action and fills your life with the higher meaning.
What is necessary to achieve this? Step-by-step development. Igor Mikhailovich told us that the Creative society is just an intermediate phase in the evolution of mankind from a slave-feudal system to a completely new way of life for modern people — an Ideal society. The Сreative Society is a transitional phase, without which it is impossible to reach the highest goal — an Ideal society of spiritually free people.
Igor Mikhailovich gave an interesting associative example, "Imagine a stormy wide river that separates a drowning island from a large shore. Wild animals live on this island. Our modern society, in fact, is no different from them. We declare the right things, talk about high standards, about ideals, but in fact we live like animals. We are separated. We have created enclaves. We are constantly fighting for territories, arguing, building hierarchies, battling for dominance.
Is this worthy of a Human? Is it proper for a Human to live in such conditions? In modern society, everything is against human. People themselves created superstructures, which enslaved them. The priority is the interests "on paper", the interests of the "state", the interests of “society” represented by small groups, and only at the very end are the interests of the human who with his own hands makes their “fairy tales a reality", driving himself even deeper into slavery. Is this normal? By creating these abstractions, we gave them our rights. But along with our rights, our benefits were taken away from us. It's time to return everything to the people. For this world is created and given to Humans. A human should not lose the status of a Human, and only then we have a chance to build an Ideal society.
Let’s return to our example, the Ideal society is on the other side of the river, on the great bank of stability and well-being, which is called Eden. And to get away from the drowning island and cross the river of death, we need to build a bridge from the consumer, animal format of relationships, where lies and slander rule, to Eden, where Truth and Love reign. This bridge should be made of solid stone of the unified will of people and their joint action. This bridge is the Creative society that stands on 8 pillars. I decided to clarify, "What are these pillars?” Igor Mikhailovich said that the pillars of this bridge are the 8 Foundations of the Creative Society.
A Human is the fundamental unit of society. Humanity is one big family.
Human life is the highest value. Life of any Human has to be protected as one's own. The goal of society is to ensure and guarantee the value of each Human's life. There is not and never can there be anything else more valuable than a Human's life. If one Human is valuable, then all People are valuable!
Every human is born with the right to be a Human being. All People are born free and equal. Everyone has the right to choose. There can be no one and nothing on Earth above a Human, his freedom and rights. The implementation of Human rights and freedoms must not violate the rights and freedoms of others.
No one and nothing in society has the right to create threats to the life and freedom of a Human!
Every Human is guaranteed free provision of essential life necessities, including food, housing, medical care, education and full social security.
Scientific, industrial and technological activities of the society should be aimed exclusively at improving the quality of human life.
Guaranteed economic stability: no inflation and crises, stable and same prices around the world, a single monetary unit, and a fixed minimal taxation or no tax.
The security of Human and society from any kind of threats is ensured by the unified global service that deals with emergency situations.
Every Human has the right to receive reliable information about the movement and distribution of public funds. Each Human has access to information about the status of implementation of the society’s decisions.
The mass media belong exclusively to the society and reflect information truthfully, openly, and honestly.
Ideology should be aimed at popularizing the best human qualities and stopping everything that is directed against a Human. The main priority is the priority of humanity, high spiritual and moral aspirations of a Human, humanness, virtue, mutual respect and strengthening of friendship.
Creating conditions for the development and education of a Human with a capital “H”, cultivating moral values in each person and society.
Prohibition of propaganda of violence, condemnation and denunciation of any form of division, aggression, and anti-humane manifestations.
Every person in the Creative society has the right to comprehensive development and personal fulfillment.
Education should be free and equally accessible to all. Creating conditions and expanding opportunities for a Human to implement his or her creative abilities and talents.
All natural resources belong to Humans and are fairly distributed among all people. Monopolization of resources and their irrational use is prohibited. These resources are fairly distributed among the citizens of the entire Earth.
A Human is guaranteed employment if he or she so desires. Pay for an identical position, specialty, or profession should be the same all over the world.
Everyone has the right to private property and income, however within the limits of the individual's capitalization amount set by the society.
The concept of "power" in the Creative Society is absent, since the responsibility for society as a whole, its development, living conditions and harmonious format, lies with each Human.
Everyone has the right to participate in the management of the affairs of the Creative Society and in the adoption of laws that improve Human life.
The solution of socially important, socially significant, and economic issues that affect the quality of a Human’s life is submitted for public discussion and voting (referendum).
This information has shocked us with its wisdom and depth. Naturally, every person wants to live in such a society. Today, we, the people living on the planet Earth, have only one question: how to implement this in the shortest time possible?
Igor Mikhailovich replied that the stages are important for building the Creative Society, and explained what each of the stages is.
The first stage is the notification of humanity about the possibility of building the Сreative Society. This is what we are actively doing now. People's deeds speak for themselves. A huge number of creative and socially important projects are carried out daily by the participants of ALLATRA International Public Movement, and everyone can learn about them from the official resources of the Movement and join this vital initiative.
There is a basic tool that plays a key role in modern society, through which our society is governed. This is politics. If we use it, it means that we will significantly accelerate the implementation of building the Creative Society.
For 6,000 years, politics has served to enslave mankind and strengthen the consumer value system. However, today it can serve all of humanity in building the Creative Society!
The governance system of modern society is designed in such a way that we vote in our own country and select from the candidates proposed to us, to whom we will delegate our rights after the election. That is, we transfer our rights to people we don’t know, and thus leave ourselves without rights. After all, we have delegated them. But along with our rights, we gave away our benefits. That is how we ourselves created the superstructure over the human. Will such an appointee, whom we have endowed with authority, work for us or in our interests? Will he return our benefits back to us? No, because he is used to them, and considers our benefits to be his property. He will think about himself, about his family, but not about us. Why? With consumer selfish thinking, he will consider that otherwise, if he begins to defend the interests of people, he will fall to our level and remain, as we are, only with declared rights and without real benefits. Isn't that absurd? Is this not a form of hidden slavery?
After taking everything from us, we were given very tough obligations, which, in fact, are impossible for most. It is simply impossible to fulfill them completely. It makes people live in constant anxiety and fear, makes them feel vulnerable and inferior. It is in such a society that you and I are forced to exist. Substitutions and manipulations all around! This is the essence of the consumer society. Everything is arranged in such a way because it is directed against a human. This is a fact. Can such a society exist for long? Does it have a future? Obviously not.
Yet, any tool can be used either for the harm or for the good, it can be used to destroy or to build. Therefore, politics can and should become our tool for building the right and truly fair, viable, life-affirming legislation for building the creative society.
Today we still live guided by the roman law, which has long become obsolete. It is necessary to create laws that will guarantee the fulfillment of the interests of each human. Their basis will be the 8 Foundations of the Creative Society. Politics should in practice become a tool for international communication and unification, promote friendship between peoples, and not be an instrument of pressure and aggression, as it is today. It can and should be used not for further separation, but, on the contrary, for the speedy unification of the entire human family.
If we continue at the same pace as now, without using politics as a tool, the process of building the Creative Society will drag on for many years. Let's be rational, does humanity have this time? In order to accelerate the process of transition of mankind from the consumer format to the Creative Society, we can and should already now use politics as the most effective tool.
We are all citizens of our countries. We go to the polls and vote for different candidates, and then we are upset because they make our lives worse and strengthen the consumer format. They adopt laws that work against us as the United Human Family, and not in our interests. As a result, the conditions of our existence are constantly getting worse. That is, when they come to power, these people protect someone else's interests, but not the interests of a Human and of the United Human Family. How can one vote for a politician at all if he is against Human and his rights? How can one vote for him if he is prone to lies and deceit?
In order to change this situation, we need to vote for those politicians who will implement and legislatively integrate the 8 Foundations of the Creative Society! What would be even better, simpler and more appropriate is to create a single world party named “Creative Society”, which in each country of the world will implement 8 Foundations of the Creative Society. And thus, by using our rights we delegated to them, it will immediately begin to return our benefits to us and work to unite all humanity as soon as possible into a United Family – the Creative Society. And only after all the countries of the world are ready for the transition from a consumer to a creative format, will we be able to hold a world referendum that will return us, all the inhabitants of the Earth, legislatively to the United Human Family - the Creative Society.
We can do this only by peaceful means. As the respected Igor Mikhailovich said, “Mankind does not need a revolution, mankind needs an Evolution”.
