For the past fifty-five years (I just had my seventy-eighth birthday), I have been involved deeply in the problematic enterprise of pointing Latin American students toward more productive, secure, and satisfying careers, as well as a broader and more meaningful participation in governmental and social processes. The medium through which these lofty goals are defined and encouraged is higher education based on fiscal, philosophical, and societal realities. It is a most daunting task, and one that has not produced positive results at the rate that theorists propose. In short, there is a great need for more efficiency and accessibility in the process, if we are to greater achievement in the desired product (truly educated students).
Significant change begins with a sometimes-radical-but-always-new perspective. And that is precisely what I have found in Mark Hamilton’s challenging proposals for better health, greater prosperity, functional government, and exciting personal relationships. Worthy of special mention for their dynamic role in my “perspective transformation” are the unassailable tenets of the Prime Law, and the Twelve Visions World. Of course, I am anxious to see these principles take effect in our country, and I am confident that they will eventually find acceptance not only in Latin America, but throughout the world.
