What Makes The Most Successful Country?

World leaders will want you to believe size and growth are the most important factors determining a vibrant society. They are wrong. Growth for the sake of growth, in the words of Edward Abbey, is the ideology of a cancer cell. And I should not need to tell you how the ideology of cancer is not a proper strategy to promote human renewal.


Gross Domestic Product (GDP) indicates how fast the wheels of humanity spin in selling valuations to ourselves to the tune of eleven times the size of production without improving human adaptability to nature’s entropy. GDP is a consequence, not the cause of human excellence, a confounding our world leaders proudly promulgate to indicate they suffer from grave depravity of reason, in the words of Nietzsche.

Nature dictates the strength of renewal, thereby improving human adaptability to nature’s entropy defines the excellence and longevity of any species. Meaning, that we must deploy nature’s first principles to learn to adapt systemically to the many curveballs of entropy nature throws our way.

Needs Over Wants

The most successful country, therefore, is a country that rewrites its constitution not to what humans want but to what humans need. A suggestion Theodore Roosevelt stated must happen every thirty years, and we never have. A two-hundred-and-fifty-year-old scripture, a set of commandments as ill-defined as the bible’s, does not instill the cohesion of morality that improves our collective interests.

We must begin to define and deploy a theory, in the words of Albert Einstein, that determines what can be discovered. Said theory must be derived from our best understanding of nature’s first-principles, having proven its validity over no less than 13.72 billion years. We have failed to deploy systems of relativity over the last hundred years, a glorious failure of governance, holding the excellence of humanity hostage in a straitjacket at least one dimension short of reality.

Success Redefined

The definition of success of the human species is not related to how much money it can accumulate from the goods and services it sells to itself. Humanity’s success lies in using our unique intelligence to comprehend, like no other species, what nature expects from us. We have yet to prove our intelligence is a crucial ingredient contributing to the composite of adaptability to make us more adaptable to the irreversible decline of available energy called entropy.

“A free people [claim] their rights as derived from the laws of nature, and not as the gift of their chief magistrate.” 

— Thomas Jefferson

The human species, in love with a form of self-appraisal called money, has everything to lose when it does not redirect the vector of its compass to how nature actually assesses its value. The most successful country methodically aligns the theory of its constitution to nature’s first-principles to fundmantally improve the strength of human renewal to adapt to the change nature bestows on us.

The sign of a vibrant, innovative nation is its willingness to pursue the ever-unfolding discovery of nature's truth and reinvent itself continually against those proven new normalizations upstream. Let’s inspire the world with new rigors of excellence we first and successfully apply to ourselves.
