BEIJING, April 28 (Xinhuanet) -- I respectfully submit this reader's letter in response to "Universal Wave Theory and Harmony Consensus" to distinguished Xinhua editor as added support for the tide of harmony consensus. In the pursuit of harmony renaissance diversed resonance by world leaders and statesmen are important for propagation.
Globalization together with Harmony Consensus will inevitably lead to World Harmony. The creative wave of harmony has already affected many prominent contemporary leaders of the world today. The following are excerpts of some of their pronouncement:
Today we have entered an era when progress will be based on the interests of all mankind. And awareness of this requires that world policy, too, should be determined by placing the values of all mankind first…Further world progress is possible now only through the search for a Consensus of all mankind, in movement towards a New World Order.MIKHAIL GORBACHEV, speech before the U.N. General Assembly, December7, 1988
A new partnership of nations has begun, and we stand today at a unique and extraordinary moment….Out of these troubled times…..a New World Order can emerge….in which the nations of the world, east and west, north and south, can prosper and live in Harmony.GEORGE H. W. BUSH, speech before a joint session of Congress, September 11, 1990
Globalization is not something we can hold off or turn off. It is the economic equivalent of a force of nature…like wind and water,BILL CLINTON, Nov 17, 2000
Adherence to multilateralism, realization of mutual security, adherence to mutually beneficial cooperation, realization of mutual prosperity, raise the spirit of tolerance and building a Harmony World together.Hu Jintao, speech before Asian African Meeting, April 22, 2005
There's been a great deal of talk about harmony in recent times. In fact, the academic, Francis Fung, has argued in his recent paper "Chinese Harmony Culture: Old and New - Promise for a Less Confrontational World" that China is witnessing a harmony renaissance. He claims that great debates are happening today in China over whether Socialism with Chinese characteristics can be Socialism with harmony. And Fung maintains that China's harmony socialism will provide an alternative model, as the leading system of governance in the 21st Century.Hon John Prescott, U.K. Deputy Prime Minister speech before Sheffield University, Jan 18, 2007
It is important to repeat that new world order is world with the creative energy of harmony consensus carried by the wave of today. Thus the world with harmony consensus is our future harmony world. The order of nature is harmony and harmony is the order of nature. Central to harmony consensus will be built in awareness to curb global insatiable and selfish appetite for consumption. Continuation of current trend is not sustainable. Without harmony consensus, the resulting catastrophic global fight for resources will be more immediate than the effect of climate change.
