"The problem, it seems, is rooted mainly in both the quality of leadership and in the worldview of global decision makers. The major driving forces in today's world are material values of wealth, power, lust, and fame. Humanitarian incentives, including compassion and altruism and spiritual values, are in the dim and distant shadows. In addition to the low number if women in decision-making positions, there is general understanding that the lack of affection, love, and feminine attitudes in the governing world of affairs has led to an aggressive masculine grip over world affairs."
