compassion, collaboration & cooperation iN transistion
MY OWN personal connessione with EVERY ONE of the notable subjects
of Tom Bower's Books, let alone his latest revelations of the shenanigans
being British was severed, when he chose to leave the Church of England
and join the Church of ROME; has engendered my long-since held very
focussed understanding of ... "another imperative for today's globalised
world is the necessity to unite politics and morality, which IS a big and
difficult problem and one which cannot be solved in one fell swoop" as
He goes on to say that ... "Those who declared the victory of the West in
the Cold War, who refused to build a new, equitable security system,
bear a large portion of the responsibility for the current state of the world.
Triumphalism is a bad advisor in world affairs. But that is not the only
problem. The new global world is still not understood and interpreted.
It needs new rules of conduct, a new morality. But the world leaders,
apparently, cannot grasp this. I think that here lies the main reason for
today's "global troubles." World politics has still not found an effective
solution for any one of these problems. Meanwhile, a new round of the
arms race has begun, the ecological crisis is getting worse and the gap
between rich and poor countries is growing, as well as between the rich
and the poor within individual countries. These are the problems that
must be on the top of the world's agenda. But they are not being solved.
Dead ends are everywhere. And yet it would seem that there are
possibilities to overcome them, as well as mechanisms – those that have
existed for a long time, such as the UN, and new ones, such as the G20,
which was created to meet the new challenges. But hardly anyone can
say that they have been successful. They are always late, they are always
behind. We are faced with a leadership crisis, both international and
national. Politicians are just occupied with "putting out fires," solving the
day's problems, crises and conflicts."
