CONFUCIUS FOR CONFUSED.
We would not like to categorically affirm that we live in a moment of extreme confusion, but a series of facts seem to corroborate the opposite. In a globalized world, wealth and well-being have not been distributed equitably and balanced among nations. Rulers do not always rule with the welfare of their peoples in mind. Corruption, that miserable evil has not been extirpated and it stands out for its respect in all spheres of human activity, mainly in those of public affairs. The productive forces have reached a considerable degree of development capable of guaranteeing basic material goods for the entire world population and yet in many countries the population is starving, there are material needs of all kinds and many children die from malnutrition and curable diseases. Education and access to universal culture are not available to everyone. Nor does medical care reach all people. There is talk of ethics and morality and immoral positions are often adopted. Deception, lies and dishonesty are displayed daily in society. Humility, decorum, respect and human consideration is not what abounds. None of this is globalized and it is what needs to be shared and made to reach the most remote places on the planet.
