What is your vision of the world that works for everyone?
A world that works for everyone might be base in mutual respect and understanding with the challenge to create a world free of hunger, war, poverty, greed and a blind hegemony.

What do you see as the most pressing problems facing the world today?
The most pressing problems facing the world nowadays could be summarize in the collapse of fundamental (basic) values that leads to the violation of the sanctity of life and unlimited struggle for material welfare.

How do you feel these problems could best be solved? Human beings need to develop their inner vital force not against someone else but for their human revolution. If we agree that we are authors and actors of destiny, the solution of any problem belongs to our own human revolution.
