The World We Want and the World We Have

Who Ties the Knot?
  • Zenita C. GuentherEmail author


The notions we present in this paper were meant to provoke open discussion, and work through different points of view on how to deal with our often troublesome modern world. The paper would be composed after considering whatever should come out of the discussion. However there was no opportunity for discussing it at the meeting, so we are still working from a one-sided point of view, initially chosen to stimulate different reactions. If anyone gets to read this paper I foresee a probability of some “head shaking” as was intended by the author. If so occurs, please drop me a line, and I will be more than happy to listen to whatever you want to say, add, inform or contradict, and I am sure that new ideas for action may still develop.
