Continuing Thoughts on Why I Worry for The World

I do not ask for agreement. In fact, I invite any comments. They can be about what I write or what you want to write about. Nothing I say is cast in concrete, ever. I type, and the words come out and become thoughts and ideas. You’re welcome to do the same.

So, I believe the world is in trouble because, in my view of things, it certainly is. I’ve mentioned the troubled environment, water, food and trade, population growth, and wars that, if they spread, could destroy our planets and life. Ironically, these are facts we all know. Yet, being helpless in the face of this is not my style.

For this paper, I express myself as the person I think I am and have been. I’ve written about being an independent and self-sufficient guy. It was clear to me early on that I was not a “joiner” or “groupie.” As a participant, I enjoyed the group. Still, I related to them as individuals. I was close to a few, but not to most of them.

Although I went to UCLA to become a professional, I chose to be an entrepreneur instead. I did work for the school system and received my credentials, but I never lost my passion for being me (whatever that meant). So, I created my own organization along with a philosophy that oozed out of me. It’s what I wanted and became. The process pushed and pulled me.

So, when I consider the world and ways to govern it, freedom for each person as a unique self may have to be altered. I am one of the lucky ones who never felt denied or restricted. Yet too many in our country know denial and restriction as their life experience. Hopefully, a world government will find a way to give every human the freedom “to be.” Meanwhile, I can dream of better things to come… Right?

Sy Ogulnick received a BA from UCLA, Teacher’s Credential from Los Angeles Board of Education and completed phase I (Master’s portion) in a Doctor of Behavioral Science program at California Coast University. Sy leased and operated a summer day camp in LA. He and his wife then purchased virgin wilderness land in Northern CA, where they built and operated a coed summer camp. They moved to Las Vegas, NV, and purchased, built and operated a community children’s program for families staying in a major resort casino in Las Vegas. They have created programs for children nationwide that employed many people and in the process developed successful training programs for personnel. This led Sy to lecture on how to train staff and the creating of community within the workplace. Sy was then invited to speak at professional conferences on how best to hire and train employees, which led to his becoming a consultant in the art of improving relationships in a work environment and eventually to his epiphany that “Leaders are the primary problem and the answer to the personnel issues that arise in the workplace.” Sy has written numerous papers on the subject of interpersonal relationships, leadership and power. He has lectured throughout the United States, has been interviewed by the media and has appeared on many radio and TV talk shows

  1. On the state of our world:
    The responses to our Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, and her visits to Taiwan and South Korea were childish, so much like the schoolyard bullies in our grade school. Just think if Xi Jinping, President of the People’s Republic of China, and Kim Jong Un, Supreme Leader of North Korea, had instead invited Speaker Pelosi to visit each of them for a day or two for talks about their relationships to the USA and the other nations of the world. Just think.

  2. Sy,
    If either it would be a good day. But, neither of these people were the issue. It was the visit of Nancy to a small island off of main land China that is supposedly belongs to China in China’s eyes that caused the issue and you did not list the person who is the top elected person of the island visiting Nancy. If he visited Nancy in the USA I am not sure what the results would be. BP
