Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
This outlook seems to be already emerging, has been emerging, for some time.  Do we need to accelerate it?  Do we need to agitate for it?  Or do we just let it come together "organically", "on its own", through technological, political, economic and cultural interchanges and developments?
Accelerating and agitating,,,it just won't work.  It will break it,,,what you're trying to accomplish, that is.  If you tamper with it, you'll ruin it.
Tao 29

Do you want to improve the world?
I don't think it can be done.

The world is sacred.
It can't be improved.
If you tamper with it, you'll ruin it.
If you treat it like an object, you'll lose it.

There is a time for being ahead,
a time for being behind;
a time for being in motion,
a time for being at rest;
a time for being vigorous,
a time for being exhausted;
a time for being safe,
a time for being in danger.

The Master sees things as they are,
without trying to control them.
She lets them go their own way,
and resides at the center of the circle.

Just be at peace, within yourself.  People will not learn, until they are ready,,,then they'll learn, and teach others by their presence, their appropriate actions.  IMHO
