The theme for today is Cultural Relating
For thinking people, this means how effectively we relate between cultures, classes, and issues groups.
With constructive relating, all human endeavors will be successful with a 95% degree of certainty. With constructive Cultural Relating at high levels, all national initiatives are possible with a similarly high degree of certainty. The plain fact of the matter is that nations cannot trade if they do not relate. Emphatically, nations cannot trade in The Global Marketplace without relating in The Cultural Marketplace!
In this context, the levels of Cultural Relating are defined in The Freedom Model:
|Level 5:||Free and interdependent relating is defined by “mutual processing for mutual benefit” with other cultures and/or nations.|
|Level 4:||Collaborative relating is defined by shared goals and common means to achieve the goals with other cultures and/or nations.|
|Level 3:||Independent relating is defined by reserving the right and power to compete as well as cooperate with other cultures and/or nations.|
|Level 2:||Competitive relating is defined by achieving and maintaining the “competitive edge” with other cultures and nations.|
|Level 1:||Dependent relating is defined by dependency in relating with other cultures and nations, including adapting and reacting.|

Remember, people, relating enables us to share images with others and, then, possibly to merge with them.
