Getting Things In Order on Planet Earth

At ryze, CEO and blogger Ken Hilving asked a great (and I mean GREAT) question. It's like one of those questions that Bono or Stephen Hawking has posted at Yahoo Answers:

"What would it mean to have things in order on planet earth? Would order preclude change, growth, imagination, discussion, dissent, or what? Can creativity coexist with order?"

"Getting things in order on planet Earth" means, to me:

- that we settle our differences peacefully, rather than by dropping bombs, invading countries, setting up secret prisons, assassinations, etc.

- that we teach peace and stewardship to children

- that we take care of our planet...because it's all we've got

Does "order" preclude change, growth, imagination, discussion, dissent, and creativity? Not at all.

Order based on peace (rather than power and use of force) and stewardship would depend on & thrive on all of these.
