OIC is committed to supporting the success of foreign policymakers, negotiators and other important officials focused on security and humanitarian challenges.
The twentieth century brought mankind countless wars and tragic human suffering all over the world. During the twentieth century 160,000,000 people died in wars alone. Despite all the dangers and misery it is important to realize that were it not for the courageous, skillful and relentless efforts of government officials, millions of people alive today would have lost their lives, rights and/or freedom.
Unfortunately, our world continues to slide down a slippery slope. Things are more dangerous today than at any other time in human history. We have conflicts throughout the Middle East, in Central Africa, in Eastern Europe and elsewhere. There are terrorists in 70 countries. Some of those more well known are committing barbaric and mindless acts of violence against innocent men, women and children. They are seeking and may already have Weapons of Mass Destruction. Beyond terrorists, let us not forget that there are also nine nuclear armed states. Some of those states are not as stable as we would like to see. Beyond security matters there are numerous violations of human rights along with many other humanitarian as well as environmental challenges.
OIC's most notable resource is ontology based programs. They have been used successfully throughout the private sector for forty years worldwide. They can make it possible for official participants to accurately identify what is needed to produce highly effective policies and negotiations leading to breakthrough results. Through the use of such transformational programs participants discover their limitless problem solving capabilities.
Fot those who automatically believe they know what these programs are, they should think again. They are not in any way similar to programs commonly found in academia, private training organizations or in foreign service institutes. Their intent, methods and results are totally distinct. Many of us have had special moments in time when we suddenly realized something of great importance where we were able to resolve a serious or longstanding challenge. Such revealing moments in time become a continual capability for those who have participated in ontology based programs.
Nuclear weapons remain the greatest threat to the survival of mankind. Many people have rightly called for eliminating nuclear weapons completely. Unfortunately that will not come to pass until various government leaders become fully capable of effectively putting an end to the common and very excessive mistrust, all the hostility, misunderstandings, resentment, fear and all other prime motivations that are at the source of pursuing and maintaining such weapons. Can this be done? Yes but time is not on our side.
