The Bad News
Drifting towards an unparalleled catastrophe..........
When Einstein issued the statement above in 1948 there was only one country with nuclear weapons the US. Today there are nine countries with advanced nuclear weapons. Today there are also twenty four countries that have biological, chemical and radiological Weapons of Mass Destruction. In 1948 there were no terrorist organizations wreaking havoc all over the world. Russia, China and the US have developed Hypersonic Weapons of Mass Destruction. These weapons travel at 8 times the speed of sound and cannot be detected. There are also Electro-Magnetic Pulse Weapons and others.
Since 1948 many conflicts have occurred and are still raging. There are numerous other global challenges such as climate warming and cyber-warfare. Another factor is having the bulk of humanity functioning daily in denial. In the last 100 years denial and inaction was present in many tragic circumstances. Ex. The Holocaust and German aggression, 911, Pearl Harbor, etc.
The point to this is that Einstein’s prediction was quite right. We are most definitely drifting towards an unparalleled catastrophe. Millions of people mostly outside of governments function daily in deep denial of these expanding dangers.
The Good News
When one asks the average person why has the world become so dangerous, the standard answer is dictators, hostile neighbors, terrorists, WMDs, climate issues, poor leadership, poverty, crime, etc. While these answers certainly have validity, they are missing one very critical factor.
These issues are an accumulation of problems that have gone continually unresolved! And, like cancer that has gone unchecked it spreads and gets worse.
It is our view that most officials are well trained and dedicated to their missions. Their level of effectiveness can be dramatically increased by increasing their levels of conscious awareness through ontology based transformational programs. This would make it possible for officials to: A-Identify critically important issues that undermine their efforts, B-Expand their level of communication capabilities and C-Create highly effective solutions. Solutions that have never been identified by officials desperate to resolve our greatest threats to humanity.
OIC Foreign Relations Breakthrough Project
The overall purpose of our project is to have a world where the various threats we face worldwide can be effectively prevented or resolved.
Many officials have their opinions of what needs to be done to resolve their most serious international challenges. However, the fact remains that most challenges persist.

Regarding Nuclear Armed States
The various anti-nuke organizations serve important functions. They create public awareness of the dangers of nuclear weapons. They work with other NGOs and governments on disarmament and proliferation issues, etc.
However, until governments recognize how to relate effectively towards each other, the fears that motivate officials to pursue nuclear and other Weapons of Mass Destruction will continue to plague our world!
It is OIC policy not to accept nor pursue financial compensation from any government, multi-lateral institution, non-governmental organization, or consulting company whose programs we recommend in our advocacy. OIC is funded by our members only.
It is also OIC policy to avoid taking sides with any government, government policy, government official, or multilateral institution. Taking sides would diminish our credibility and make us part of the problems we seek resolution for.
