Why do we need Univetica today?

Because other approaches to solving the global crises confronting us all have failed. We no longer live in isolated communities separated by language, terrain, or culture. Unparalleled levels of international trade and the information age have brought all of us closer. Today, our potential for progress is unmatched in history. With serious challenges facing humanity as a whole, more than ever, our responsibilities and allegiances belong to the global community as opposed to any one individual nation state. Univetica provides a way toward a meaningful existence nestled in the concept of P>R and global-realization—the fulfillment of the global community’s potential.
