Is an Extrication from a Web of Needs, Interests, Greed, Hatred, and Recurring Violence Possible?
Excerpt from book, Israeli-Palestinian Conflict, 2018

"The responsibility for change lies
within us. We must begin with ourselves,
teaching ourselves not to close our minds...

" avoid violent upheaval we must begin
now to focus on the problem of structural,
political absolescence around the world...
before the further disintegration of existing
political systems sends the forces of
tyranny jackbooting through the streets,
and makes impossible a peaceful transition
to twenty-first-century democracy.

"If we begin now, we and our children can
take part in the exciting reconstitution
not merely of our obsolete political
structures but of civilization itself.

"Like the generation of the revolutionary
dead, we have a destiny to create."

Excerpt from Alvin and Heidi Toffler, Creating a New Civilization, Preface, pp. 106-108.

"Someday, after mastering the winds, the waves, the tides and gravity, we shall harness for God the energies of love, and then, for a second time in the history of the world, man will have discovered fire."

Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

Call for an unfiltered dialogue...

In an article entitled, “The true genius of the Jewish mind distilled”, Dr. Albert Fiorino puts forward forceful and urgent reasons for a resumption of the proposed dialogue.

The dialogue is necessary for a resolution of the most serious predicaments in which humanity finds itself in these early years of the 21st century. He maintains that only those transcendent elements within each one of us can provide the driving forces and can help us forge the required existential attitude by which to deal effectively with the critical problems facing us. As was the case at the first awakening of the Jewish mind when the Lord of all creation extended an invitation to come and reason with Him, we too must be willing now to respond anew to this ever beckoning call. He writes:

“Centuries have gone by, and the Lord of all creation has stirred up those transcendent elements once more in the human spirit and is again issuing the same invitation, ‘Come now, let us reason together....’ He is doing this not because He is lonely and is in dire need of social companionship. He is doing it because He knows that we are in great need of His assistance. For quite some time now He has watched the socio-cultural dynamics of the entire planet become infested with very threatening pressure points. These pressure points are rapidly approaching their critical mass and are ready to wreak havoc on humanity, unless we quickly find new ways by which to diffuse them and restore some state of equilibrium to these same dynamics.

“We believe that a reopening of a dialogue with the Lord of all creation, responding anew to His call to come and reason with Him about the critical problems which presently beset us is imperative. Why? It is the only way by which to tap those transcendent elements within us and which offer the only viable and sustainable solutions to our present, dangerous human crisis.”
