A Precis of Social Sustainability provides an understanding of the logic of the holism of human existence. What is necessary to grasp the logic of social sustainability is an understanding of human motivation. The Homo sapiens species is “programmed” by the program code of its genome to survive without conscious or intentional thought. However, this code can only be applied to the survival of the civilization of humanity by conscious, volitional decisions.
Abraham Maslow paved the way, but knew at the time that his theory of human motivation was not yet complete and that further research would be needed to bring it full circle. That circle has been completed with this precis and the referenced paper in the footnote.
Social sustainability2 will not become fully operational until the program of the human genome has begun to be exercised to bring about social stability and peace. And this must be done with conscious intention, plus appropriate proactive social policies and social programs the intentionally bring about social evolution.
