Where Are We Headed?

I have no idea, but I am willing to guess. The big question is, “Where are our Earth and Nations heading at the present time, and what will they face in the near future?” I, for one, believe that time is not ours to waste. At 95, I won’t and cannot.

The problem with our environment is real. I do not speculate on this “fact.” Breathable air and clean water for drinking and irrigation are problematic. Other problems we have at the present time include temperature, population, food, and food distribution. There are more, of course, but I’ll stop here and hope that science and a cooperative world will act in concert to rein in what is now becoming out of control.

We live with and have, for some time, a growing problem of Nationalism VS Liberalism. This does not compare to the global problem of a disintegrating environment. Still, it is a problem that affects the daily existence of most people who appear helpless to create the best possible way to govern and live for themselves, family, and community.

At its most fundamental: Liberalism is about each person being granted and exercising equal rights under the law. Nationalism gives these rights only to a specific population and not to all.

Earth (Our World) is like a big ship on the ocean. Regardless of its size, it is still very small when seen from above. A dot on a big ocean. This is Earth, as seen by our astronauts from their perspective in space.

It becomes more evident with every passing day that Earth’s resources are being stretched to the limit by an ever-growing population. We must never forget that we are on this boat together and need to care for all.

The World must act—Time is not ours to Let lie—Contribute to it.

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
