Peter Koestenbaum's Weekly Leadership thought for December 24, 2001

Cooperation today must take a new turn. In the past, conflict among ideologies created wars; today, struggles are more likely to form along ethnic and religious lines. Therefore, it is a matter of the highest urgency to build cooperation on the common principles of humanity that bond us all. It is equally important to find ideas and feelings in the world religions that all human beings can share. We must discover those beliefs that connect us, emphasize them, teach them, and promulgate them, so that we can be more tolerant in areas where we disagree.

The greatest danger in this world is unthinking people -- people who feel passionately but do not think, people who have no education, people who have nothing to lose. Universally, lack of education is the result of poverty, just as poverty is the result of the absence of education. This loop, which turns into a downward spiral, must be reversed. A virtuous circle must be established to replace the nefarious results of the vicious circle that prevails today. This is the ultimate meaning of cooperation.
