Question: What is a skill that would make the world a better place if more people learned it?
Answer: “Networking” – meaning building positive, sustainable, mutually responsible, mutually supportive and mutually complementing connections, cooperation.
In a globally integrated and fully interdependent world this is the only skill that can offer problem solving ability and long-term survival.
Still this skill is not as easy to achieve as it sounds.
Our inherently self-serving, self-justifying, distrusting and hateful Human nature does and will do everything in its power to disrupt such efforts as we can see for example in the case of Europe, or anywhere else where people try to build realistic, long-term connections, cooperation.
Thus first of all we need a suitable, purposeful and practical educational method, that can help us understand the crucial necessity of these connections and can also give us the tools and method for building them.
