We need a New Way of Thinking- in all 193 states on earth.
Let us learn from Albert Einstein, the big brain of the 20th century.
Einstein’s structure of thought and methodology reveal themselves best in his aphorisms in “New Thought.”
He continually questioned, thought through, analysed, and designed in ways that transcended the already known, the recognized, the accepted, and the established.
The two most important of his quintessential theses are:
“Imagination is more important than knowledge.”
“We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.”
Today, the foreign and security policy of the West (and Russia and China as well) is dominated by a lack of new thinking; it is without imaginative capabilities and creativity.
Most fragile democracies of the world (including the United States under president Trump) are lacking “new thought” and a believable moral strategy to “shape a better world.”
We all need a fresh creative double strategy of power and reconciliation, of hard and soft factors of peace making, with much more money to promote reconciliation and tolerance. The hawk cannot bring us peace alone.
