In this section, we will explore the vital issues of societies and human communities. (This potentially controversial topic invites your responses and views. See the numerous feedbacks linked from the various articles.)

Like the restless tectonics plates of our globe’s surface and subterranean crust, the social, economic and political infrastructures of our nations are subject to imminent upheavals, with considerable risk of accompanying dislocations and sufferings for large numbers of our populations.

Controversies, disputes, conflicts, contested territories, coveted resources, percolating rivalries and outright enmities can disrupt the social order and harmony and plunge the world’s nations into ever recurring frictions, frays, and outright wars.

Can such human catastrophes be prevented or ameliorated by emerging methods of problem-solving, reconciliation, resolution before society’s tectonic shifts destabilize the fragile systems that hold civilization together? Let us explore our understandings of these problems and join in seeking constructive solutions to forestall the sufferings which humankind has endlessly visited upon itself. What knowledge and wisdom do we need to discover and apply to save humanity from another onslaught of senseless global devastation?
