E', questa, la proposta di una tecnica di comunicazione inter-individuale ed un'analisi scientifica del significato di termini quali: equità e solidarietà.

La razionalità autentica è da intendere come coerenza con la natura umana, sia nella manifestazione dell'individualità quanto in quella della socialità.

L’origine dell’infelicità umana, pur analizzata sotto molteplici aspetti, manca di un'analisi delle sue origini nella realtà storica. Occorre, quindi, realizzare un'analisi delle cause che hanno generato la realtà storica, come noi la conosciamo, consentendo così di prevederne la possibile evoluzione e di constatare se sia possibile realizzare un salto qualitativo, sul piano della civilizzazione.

Recentemente è stata paventata la "fine della storia", più di recente persino la "fine del mondo", ma le persone comuni e gli intellettuali aspettano da millenni una palingenesi che consenta la "fine dell'inferno sulla terra", ossia la fine del contrasto tra individui e società. Per raggiungere questo risultato occorre che gli esseri umani acquistino la piena conoscenza scientifica della realtà!

La storia umana sarà autentica "maestra di vita" se ne verrà fatta un'analisi rispondente alla realtà dell'evoluzione complessiva della stessa storia umana e, più in generale, della storia delle strutture sociali realizzate da ogni specie vivente. Tale analisi consentirà di prendere coscienza della natura e dei meccanismi evolutivi della realtà strutturale dell'umanità, la quale diverrà adulta.
