Comment

 

There is a saying, “The Truth never perishes.” Depending on what you consider crucial, things are as they are; and in the recognition of those facts lie the solutions to our real world challenges: global warming, epidemics, acute social problems brought on by globalization - and developing an appropriate investment policy. Divisive political backlashing may score points in the short-run, but it won’t help in the long-run. A member of Congress noted, democratic societies cannot survive (or act) without, “acceptance of a common set of experiences” (that define the common good). Truth, former ambassador James Melville says, is the fundamental way the West governs.* “If we can’t think for ourselves, if we’re unwilling to question authority, then we’re just putty in the hands of those in power. But if the citizens are educated and form their own opinions, then those in power work for us.”**
