“Perhaps world leaders may know the causes of this world’s ills but so far, they have not solved the ills – a lack of understandings! Quite a few things in this world are... More > deteriorating and we tend to blame governments and/or leaders. Do we ask ourselves if we have the wrong government systems? Some leaders have been deposed only to find that the subsequent societies got worst. As a 70 year old former engineer, I should understand how some things work, what may cause failure and what should be done to prevent failure. I look at the world as the system by which humans operate. The Earth is the craft on which mankind live and it seems to me that the Earth is not too happy with how men treat it, thus earthquakes, storms, droughts, etc. - are the results. What hope has mankind got for a proper society to be conducted? Mortal men do not seem to have an answer but perhaps The Lord has.” Alan Agarrat - alanmagarrat@hotmail.co.uk< Less
