The Best "only Way" Is To Allow Alternate Ways

In response to your statement:
While there are benefits to "universality"
and "Economies of Scale" in large collective efforts, there are many drawbacks and hazards too. The trouble with only one religion or only one "way" is it becomes the goal of all power-seekers to control access to that "one way" and interpretation of that "one way."
So it can defeat its own purpose if those controlling it are corrupted by the human tendency to be overwhelmed with the luxuries of power, whichever kind they choose.

As you know, human beings are, in large part,
limited by their modest electrical features.

Individual human beings can be overwhelmed in so many ways electrically by information or stress...
and with the brain being attached to the body which has built-in drives and needs similar to higher animals,
there are resource allocation problems within each person. SO IT IS BETTER NOT TO LET ANY INDIVIDUAL HAVE TOO MUCH POLITICAL POWER OVER OTHER INDVIDUALS, but just enough for good government.

Thank you.
