Please describe your vision of a world that works for everyone.
My vision for a world that works for everyone is a world where everyone is at peace and content with themselves thereby bringing about unity of men across the world and resulting in an end to violence and conflict being experience around the world today. A world where we all have achieved inner peace with ourselves which will enable us be at peace with our friends and neighbours. A world where everyone is able to control their life by understanding the relationship between consciousness and experience.
What do you see as the most pressing problems facing the world today?
I see Terrorism, Famine, Drought, Corruption, and bad governance as the most pressing problems facing the world today.
TERRORISM: Terrorism is now a global problem because not only do terrorists strike at European and American countries and infrastructure, they are now attacking in Africa. This is a huge problem which the world is facing today. How do you fight a group who are willing to die in their quest to strike terror in the world? This is a pressing problem that needs a solution and fast too.
FAMINE AND DROUGHT: These two go hand in hand as where there is drought, there certainly must be famine. This is a global issue especially in countries close to the desert; as desertification usually results in drought.
CORRUPTION AND BAD GOVERNANCE: Countries all over the world and especially countries in the Third world are faced with this dilemma. Corruption and bad governance has led to uprisings in Egypt and Libya but to name a few. In African countries and other countries around the world it has brought about the emergence of conflict between the government and militants. It has resulted in anomie and insurgency in many countries around the world.
How do you feel these problems could best be solved?
For these problems to be solved, I feel governments around the world have to become proactive to the needs of their citizenry. I also feel it is the obligation of every citizen to ensure that they are in control of their life and emotion. In addition, good ethics and morals should be introduced to the education curriculum all over the world. Countries all over the world are facing these pressing problems and I believe they should unite in a bid to over come them.
Concerning the issue of corruption and bad governance, I do not believe in violence it is not the best way to solve a problem but at times, it could be the only way such as was the case in Ghana when Jerry Rawlings had to oust the ‘bad eggs’ in governance for there to be some sanity in the governance of the country. The masses should not applaud bad leadership but fight against them because if they do not, they and their future generation will have no heritage in their father land.
