Congratulations to The Times on its recent special report on "Seeking a New World" (World Report, Dec. 11 and 18), and which to me was the most significant series in my more than 30 years' readership of your paper.
While President Bush recently called for a "new world order," since his "read my lips" reversal, I find it most difficult to accept his new world order pronouncement as anything more than rhetoric, as was also Ronald Reagan's "a new beginning" statement of a few years ago.
In the epilogue of the special report, Paul Nitze is quoted as stating, "We need a strategic concept, and we aren't hearing one." There is no denying that one of the greatest needs in today's world is for the development and availability of a realistic global strategy to bring forth a new and better world order.
The fact of the matter is that such a strategy does exist and is available now. I refer to the New Reality Education program as developed by the International Center for Advanced Study. Its purpose is to encourage and develop that higher level of awareness of modern world realities, and without which there can be no significant improvement in the overall human condition.
