OIC Foreign Relations Breakthrough Project
"There is Nothing More Powerful Than an Idea Whose Time Has Come!" -Victor Hugo
We live in the most dangerous time in human history. There are 9 nuclear armed states today. Iran is seeking to be no. 10. Terrorists are pursuing various types of Weapons of Mass Destruction. Cyber-warfare is raging and other new very dangerous weapons are being constantly developed.
While the threats, conflicts and terrorist attacks keep expanding, foreign policymakers, security strategists and other officials have been struggling with great difficulty for a long time to resolve these challenges.
Ex. US-Russian relations, the North Korean challenge, the decades long Israel-Palestinian conflict, US-Iranian relations, etc.
Many in the public steeped in denial seem content to blindly assume that their government will resolve these challenges. At this time there is no evidence to suggest that will happen.
Our highly trained and experienced government officials do have the potential to prevent and resolve our challenges. Our project is about advocating resources that will make it possible for officials to actualize their limitless problem solving potential.
With the successful development of ontology based programs it is possible today for foreign policymakers and other key government officials to accurately identify and substantially diminish the issues that continually undermine their problem solving efforts.
Through the various ontology based programs that focus on communication, diplomatic solutions will be many times more effective than ever before.
This means that millions of lives can be spared the misery of armed conflicts, the destruction of cities, becoming refugees, the abuse of human rights and end decades of hostility.
Among the various features of ontology based programs, the processes used dramatically expand the participant's level of conscious awareness.
This is very important because officials would become able to recognize critical issues continually bypassed or misconstrued.
Countdown to Zero Trailer
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!
Young Diplomat Project
The Young Diplomat Project connects high school Social Studies and World History Students with important diplomats at the UN Secretariat, the Permanent Missions of UN Member States in New York, at the State Department and Embassies in Washington.
Speaking directly with diplomats gives the student a deeper insight and a broader perspective into the world of international affairs. Student groups up to 4 students choose a government and OIC facilitates the connection between the student’s teacher and the diplomat. Arrangements are then made for the visit.

They would be able to get on the same channel in negotiations with difficult adversaries. Their policies would be formulated to develop strong ties with adversaries.
The programs have been used with consistent and outstanding success worldwide in corporations, non-profits and select government agencies since the 1970s.
Over the next 4 years OIC will be focusing our program advocacy on US relations with Russia, Iran and North Korea, Israeli relations with the Palestinians and the problems related to non-state terrorist organizations. We will include US allies and UN officials in this effort.
It is important to understand that all human beings function at various levels of conscious awareness depending on the issue.
It must also be understood that the level of conscious awareness of the problem solvers, determines the amount and clarity of the issues they will be able to accurately identify.
So if the foreign policymakers, negotiators and other officials were to dramatically expand their level of conscious awareness, they would be able to resolve challenges that have persisted for decades.
Wherever ontology-based programs were used since the 1970s the results have been consistently extraordinary.
An official problem solving with an insufficient level of conscious awareness for their challenge, will have the following counter-productive results:
1-Vital turning point information continually bypassed, or misconstrued. 2-Assessing the words and actions of adversaries with a negative and judgmental mindset while ignoring the validity of positive and alternative views. There is always more than one valid interpretation. 3-Undermining the possibility of effective communication in negotiations. There are infinite levels of communication capabilities.
4-The inability to recognize the profound and long lasting relationship between harm done in the past and problems in the present. 5-The inability or unwillingness to be accountable for harm done or other counter-productive actions past and present.
6-Officials thinking like victims or potential victims of circumstances they erroneously believe are beyond their control.
In the case of the problem solvers thinking like victims they are not self-scrutinizing their own actions sufficiently. This usually leads them into the "blame and change the adversary game."
