CHINA and U.S. – Speech by Mark Bruzonsky at conf last weekend

9 08 2014

   I’d like to begin with my conclusion:  The greatest challenge of our times is to get our two great countries with such different histories and cultures, the US and China, to work together as allies rather than to be protagonists and adversaries.  For even if we avoid war — which these days can be political, economic, covert, and cyber, as well as military — we have to start using our combined talents and energies for positive purposes, not for conflict preparations.   We can no longer afford to squander our resources preparing for conflict with each other.  Rather we have to use everything we have to jointly and collaboratively fight the grave problems that truly threaten all of us human beings on this small endangered planet.
