'Memo new president: let's end some fear'

Madeleine Albright's Opinion piece in yesterday's Age is well worth a read. Let's hope it is a harbinger of things to come regardless of who wins the next US election.

She observes that 'one manifestation of fear is an unwillingness to think seriously about alternative perspectives' and thus axiomatically the Bush and Howard eras in their respective countries have created environments inimical to systems thinking and practice which depend on acknowledging, surfacing and valuing multiple partial perspectives in complex situations.
