Civilization is on the move

We certainly seem to be living at a pivotal point in history regarding possibilities for a different response to conflicts. I am currently reading Huntington’s “clash of civilizations” and regardless of what seems to be emerging or replacing nation states as a focus for conflict, it is certain that we are in for something different. The larger perspective indicates that civilization as we know it is on the move big time and we may well depend on those awake enough to the possibilities for peace to have any chance at all. It may well depend on the growing mass of individuals who can raise their identity to a global, (or “civilizational”) level, and give priority to the ethic of care for others.
