The 21st Century Is Critical

Opinion: (Mikhail Gorbachev, the former first secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union): “The XXI century will be a сentury either of total all-embracing crisis or of moral and spiritual healing that will reinvigorate humankind. It is my conviction that all of us – all reasonable political leaders, all spiritual and ideological movements, all faiths – must help in this transition to a triumph of humanism and justice, in making the XXI century a century of a new human renaissance.”

Therefore, spiritual awakenings such as sense of unity, must be self-realized instead of enforcement. In order to acquire this, it’s important that balance of powers must exist. This is to decrease to the minimal to a game of “winner takes all” as what had recently happen.
