World Harmony Consensus in response to David Gosset, Roger Cohen and Josuhua Ramo
Please review and comment. Your input will be greatly appreciated. Attached is the praise from the back of my second book "World Harmony Renaissance: Promise for a Better World".
WORLD HARMONY CONSENSUS
I read with interest the articles by David Gosset, Director Academia Sinica Europea, "The Dragon's Metamorphosis" dated April 7, 2007 and "A New World with Chinese Characteristics" dated April 12, 2007, both carried by Asia Times. I quote from the articles, "With China's economic, social, political and cultural renewal, a five-century period of Western domination of the world has ended. One has to make sense of China's complex dynamics to apprehend a new world with Chinese characteristics." and "Democratization with Chinese characteristics will enrich the vocabulary of Western political scientists."
Without being immodest I venture to quote from my essays "Socialism with Chinese characteristics is Socialism with Harmony" and "The best system for any country is a harmonious system developed from its own culture with interaction from outside and not imposed from outside." "Harmony Propagates by Resonance." "Harmony is the order of nature and resonance is nature's preferred way of propagation." "It is time for America to advocate World Harmony Renaissance." These quotations are taken from World Harmony Organization published books "China's Harmony Renaissance; What the World Must Know", "World Harmony Renaissance: Promise for a Better World." and more than 30 essays on harmony renaissance, published by worldwide media and included in our blog site.
Joshua Cooper Ramo suggested in "The Beijing Consensus", published by the Foreign Policy Centre, U.K. May, 2004 that the world now has bipolar consensus in foreign policy thinking, Washington vs. Beijing. In a recent International Herald Tribune article, Nov. 22, 2006, Roger Cohen wrote "China vs. U.S.: Democracy Confronts Harmony. Stay Tuned." Prof. Gosset has moved ahead of the current American confrontational thinking to a more accommodating position. Since harmony as nature's order includes all human interactions including democracy in this global world, it is time for us to transition beyond regional brands of democracy towards world harmony. Harmony belongs to the world and includes a broader definition of democracy. Its premise is tolerance, acceptance, equity and humility. It is inclusive to any culture. It is the most universal value that can unite the world in unity in diversity.
The world will combine Washington consensus, Beijing consensus and any other consensus to arrive at World Harmony Consensus. The biggest common denominator of the world today is sustainable development. Harmony began with human observation of nature. It will logically bring us together to work for better ecology and better world. Once we began working together for world sustainable development World Harmony Consensus will inevitably follow!
