These proposals are not utopian or purport to create paradise, but they reflect a vision that can be realized. They have been tried and used in different countries.
These proposals can provide the means for dealing more effectively with human shortcomings and the failures that are typical of bureaucracy and politics.
Indeed, while some of these proposals might seem far-reaching, we need to bear in mind that they are necessary in order for us to be able face the enormous challenges and dangers ahead of us.
Not only the quality of our lives is in jeopardy, but our very existence. Therefore there is no other choice.
In the face of our dangers we need to build a society and a country, which is a privilege to be part of and honor to protect.
And I will turn My hand upon you , and purge away your dross as with lye , and remove all your tin; And I wil restore your judges as at the first , and your counsellors as in the beginning; Afterwards you shall be called The city of Righteousness , the faithful city; Zion shall be redeemed through justice , and her penitent through righteousness.
(Isaiah , 1 , 25-27)
