Opinion: (Steven Weber and Bruce W. Jentleson, The End of Arrogance: America in the Global Competition of Ideas): “World politics has entered a new and distinctive age in which ideas and influence are linked in a vibrant and sometimes ferocious competition for ascendance.
“Core questions about how best to achieve world order and what constitutes just societies, seemingly settled at the end of the 20th century, have been re-opened in the 21st century.
“Governments are just one voice among many, and in some ways the least magnetic to many people simply because they are the least novel.
“The United States needs an actionable articulation of mutuality. Mutuality is not altruism or the abdication of national interest. No nation can be for others instead of for itself. But in a global age, it is more essential than ever to have a credible claim to using one’s power and position for seeking out actions and outcomes that serve shared interests.
“The United States will be tested by global audiences in the next decade and beyond as never before. But so will every other contender for leadership in the competition of ideas.
“That leaves us optimistic. Because if Americans understand the terms of this new international game, there really is no one who can lead more effectively.”
My Comment: In a new integral world, governments are the most obsolete forms of the old world, while the masses are much more sensitive to the form of unification humanity has to accept.
Therefore, namely the masses will bring a new form to the world, but the organization of the correct external environment needed for the correction of the masses is hardly feasible without the government since mass media is in its hands. Evidently, by pressuring governments, the masses will force them to create conditions for the correct environment needed to build the society of the next generation.
