“Achieving a unifying global consensus as the basis for a humane, ecologically  viable, new global system is possible. A new global system requires new political and social arrangements, a new (or renewed) vision of humankind's  existential reality and purpose, and an unrelenting effort to make the former  truly reflect the latter. This is an agenda worthy of what we see as the best in  human nature and experience.”
