In the increasingly interdependent world, no nations and social groups can survive alone as separated entities, resulting in existential interdependence. The interdependent world is maintained by the global unity of traditions and defenses to prevent destructive extremism and mutual annihilation from offensive military, respectively. The global unity of traditions is achieved by establishing the optimal systems as the middle ways between the opposite traditions in religion, economy, politics, and environment. The global unity of defenses is achieved by establishing the World Defense Organization based on interdependent realism. The global unity leads to world peace without destructive extremism and mutual annihilation.
The traditions are derived from the triple social-worldview structures. Originated from natural selection for the evolution of society, the triple social structure consists of individualistic (yang) society, collectivistic society (yin), and interdependent (harmonious) society. Originated from territorial instinct and civilization, the triple worldview structure consists of the divisive worldview of the West based on divisive morality for dealing with the world as out-group (out-world), the cooperative worldview of the East based on cooperative morality for dealing with the world as in-group (in-world), and the interdependent worldview of the interdependent world based on the interdependent morality. In divisive worldview, freedom and supremacy are moral, and restriction and inferiority are immoral. In cooperative worldview, reciprocity and cohesive relationship are moral, and egotism and divisive bigotry are immoral. In the interdependent worldview, the morality is global unity, and the immorality is global disunity.
The various traditions in religion, economy, politics, and environment are derived from the various combinations of the worldviews and the societies. In religion, the divisive religions are Judaism, Islam, and Greek individualism, the cooperative religions are Hinduism and Confucianism, and the interdependent religions are Christianity, Buddhism, and Daoism. In economy, divisive individualistic economy is capitalism, divisive collectivistic economy is socialism, cooperative individualistic economy is reciprocal economy, and cooperative collectivistic economy is cohesive economy. In politics, divisive politics is democracy, and cooperative politics is meritocracy. In environment, divisive environment is anthropocentrism, and cooperative environment is environmentalism.
The optimal religion is based on the universal trinity creed consisting of the transcendental civilized platform for the unknowable transcendental supernatural, the immanent civilized platform for the knowable immanent supernatural, and the harmonious natural platform for the experiential conscience, corresponding roughly to the Father, the Son, and the Spirit in Christianity. The optimal economy is based on the optimal equality economy between capitalism and socialism to avoid excessive equality and inequality, and the optimal dual economy between divisive economy and cooperative economy to adapt to different cultures and situations. The optimal politics is based on the optimal dual politics between democracy and meritocracy to allow democracy to have meritocracy in national government and to allow meritocracy to have democracy in local government. The optimal environment is based on the optimal ecological footprint between anthropocentricism and environmentalism to avoid excess anthropocentricism and environmentalism. In the interdependent world, offensive military brings about mutual annihilations including the economic, nuclear, arms race, nuclear, and asymmetrical warfare mutual annihilations which can be prevented by the World Defense Organization in terms of free trade without military interference and the minimizations of nuclear weapons, military expenditure, and hegemony, respectively.

By the mid-nineteenth century, many reformers from Europe and America realized the
need to transform capitalist industrial society into a much more egalitarian system in which
collectivistic relationship is above individualistic achievement. The system is socialism. The
word was first used in the early 1830s by the followers of Owen in Britain and those of Saint-
Simon in France. They criticized the excessive poverty and inequality of the Industrial
Revolution. They advocated reform via the egalitarian distribution of wealth without private
property.

The principle of socialism is collectivistic relationship. There are different ways to carry
out collectivistic relationship. Socialism can be cooperative socialism, total state ownership
socialism, partial state ownership socialism, and regulatory socialism.
In cooperation socialism, without private ownership, people cooperate with freedom and
equality. It is possible only in a relatively small simple community. The large complicate
industrial society requires a centralized government that plans and controls the economy in order
to achieve collectivistic relationship. Therefore, for large socialistic society, collectivistic
relationship is carried out by systems of social organization in which the means of producing and
distributing goods is owned or regulated by a centralized government that often plans and
controls the economy.

Total state ownership socialism, such as Communism, does not allow free market.
The means of producing and distributing goods is owned totally by a centralized state that plans
and controls the economy. Partial state ownership socialism allows both free market for private
ownership and state ownership. Regulatory socialism demands private own business to be as
transparent as possible, so state can monitor and regulate private own business to follow a certain
degree of collectivistic relationship. Most socialism systems today consist of partial state
ownership socialism and regulatory socialism.
