It also takes continued efforts of discussing “Whos rationality? What justice” as MacIntyre elegantly have phresed the perenial concerns of governance and institutional settings. Proff. in political science M Frölish has discussed the leadership issues in this context in his 100 year anniversary texts about Dag Hammarsköld and the global concerns at the time of his mission at the United Nations. The concerns and challanges are basically the same as in the aftermath of the second world war.

Well said. Can’t argue with that. But leaders can’t be “bold” in choosing among trails not yet “broken” (where no man has gone before). The best of leaders are seldom very good at predicting the future very far out, and yet I agree there must be a transition from short-term thinking to responsible long term planning and governance.

The world is undergoing a change fully as transformative as the industrial revolution. More and more of the uneducated, the incapable, the incompetent, the unmotivated, the unsatisfied, the unemployed and the unemployable are going to be pushing, shoving and demanding an ever greater piece of an economic pie they can not and do not contribute to the making of. At SEVEN BILLION and climbing, is it being insensitive or being honest in pointing out that life will NOT be “better” for all henceforth with each such “new” person?

I seriously question whether people today have the stomach to make the choices necessary to assure that quality of life prevails over quantity of life in the long term. Regardless, the very survival of any meaningful destiny for humanity depends on such choices.
