Here is today’s burning question:
What is the connection between sovereignty and the human heart?
What if the world is moving toward a place where state sovereignty and global leadership have one requirement: a pure heart?
Can you imagine a question like this being asked at the United Nations?
Can you imagine the impact of such a question in the White House or the Kremlin?
We talk a lot these days about the “transparency” and “accountability” of our leaders and institutions.
We talk a lot about “moral leadership” and “ethical stewardship.”
But why do we so rarely speak, in domestic and international politics, about pure words and heartfelt actions – and their revolutionary effects?
The human heart is a country still undiscovered by much of the world and its sovereigns…
What will happen when a storm hits and their ships of state crash onto its shores?
Actually, I think, a worldwide storm is rocking the boat right now…
Very soon, we’ll all be castaways in the jungles and volcanoes of the human heart.
What new and far-advanced civilizations are buried there?
What inhabitants live there?
Will we kill the natives we meet?
Or greet them as ourselves?
