Incorporating Global Cultural Intelligence
Arif ur Rehman, Professor, Pakistan, Member
To talk of utopia, Mr. Obaka, at best fills the needs to theorize an impossibility. The east and the west are incompatible
-- fair and square. Whether is a business or a political agenda the west always tends to 'impose' itself of the marginalized east.
What can be achieved at the most - both rational and logical - the west needs to begin 'appreciating' the east through 'eastern eyes' and the east must learn first to learn then share and then to live the 'western technologically' and the one culture, one people, may loom in the not too distant horizon.
The cultural handshake can only follow a cultural 'heart shake' if, and only if, man begins to think of goodness and peace for humankind.
