Global Human Development

We base our strategy on human commonalities, those values and capabilities of moral and virtuous nature to plan and resolve long-standing issues that plague humanity. Necessarily it is inclusive to spirituality, the search for meaning and purpose in life.

This is ideal for devising global human development frameworks by identifying those specific qualities, values, and capabilities that policy wonks and others can use to plan comprehensively to create and implement the policy required to secure the human condition in turbulent globalizing environments.

Sustained Engagement

We remain strategically engaged in devising innovative development criteria that is consistent with the character of those moral values and spiritual principles inherently common to the human species.

A Strong History

By the year 2000, I had begun to operate across a broad global spectrum to engage with a cross-section of human diversity. I viewed this as my primary approach to help me acquire an understanding of exactly what criteria is needed to achieve quality in development planning, to help ensure successful policy and implementation. Based on the feedback received, I soon realized that the best approach in global human development would be to encourage the full expression of humanity’s inherent commonalities. This approach became the primary element in our planning strategy. We now aspire to be the first choice among stakeholders who seek inclusive dialogue to find solutions to humanity's ongoing plight.

I have professional experience and capabilities as an environmentalist, program manager, management analyst, non-profit executive director, researcher, project coordinator, contract specialist, engineering and construction projects evaluator, budget analysis, computer systems analysis, and a printing specialist for map reproduction.

Highlights. Environmental planning, policy, and program administration; contract specialist for toxic and hazardous waste disposal; computer systems analysis; budgetary outlays and manpower projections; management analysis and reorganization proposals. I have extensive experience working in multi-cultural organizations in international settings. I’m experienced with African, European, Middle Eastern, and Far East Asian cultures/societies/economies through extensive travels, long-term residences, research projects, and formal education.

I’m effective in working with cultural diversity in local and international settings and remain competent, diplomatic and tactful at all professional levels.


Actionable issues require detailed planning and unbridled resolved to employ the resources and creativity required to break cyclical repetitiveness and achieve stated goals and objectives. We employ an all-inclusive strategy for long-term planning and policy creation to ensure systematic and phase-in accomplishments over extended time-horizons. This criterion remains congruent with the principle that humanity, as an entity-of-one, is inherent with core values, of a moral and spiritual nature, and used as actionable nuclei capable of forging sustainable pathways to achieve intrinsic outcomes. Devising strategy to expand human development in globalizing environments is an all-inclusive and challenging effort that must be guided by principles of justice. Realizing the need for extended approaches to implement development policy, we are motivated by consideration for other than short-term expediency as our primary interest is not in maintaining the mainstream status quo but finding ways to transform it.

Global Human Development

Global human development is an interdependent and interrelated process, a platform where the sum of its parts make up a whole to ensure the advancement and security of the publics’ welfare. This undertaking is centered around trailblazing practices that involve tactical planning to engage innovative policy-centered development criteria. It directly associates policy with humanity's commonalities and core capabilities (i.e., spiritual values, moral principles, and ethical performance criteria, all elements inherent to the species). These elements are imbued in plans, policy, and design features to enhance leadership, law, and governance—the foremost trilateral needed to ensure the success of development undertakings. This process is accomplished through executive functions and managerial processes and procedures. It is addressed at all levels of society to garner support for program design and implementation.

Environmental Administration

I administered environmental programs in support of Taiwan's national government and its efforts to protect and conserve natural resources. Initiatives inherent to the Agenda 21 Sustainable Development Program were the basis for various environmental undertakings implemented in-country. I collaborated with private businesses, NGOs, and national and local government officials to bring the country's businesses in line with ISO 9000 Certification. We focused on strengthening national environmental regulations with emphasis placed on urban and rural planning, environmental regulatory compliance, pollution control, urban waste management, water quality control, toxic and hazardous waste disposal, environmental education, soil erosion, wildlife conservation, air quality improvement, and waterways management.

Administrative Management

This area relates to a broad spectrum of professional activities that includes work with and also supervising culturally diverse teams of specialist and staff in support of engineering programs and construction projects located throughout the Republic of Korea, and interfaced with similar operations in Japan and Hawaii. Based on my system analysis background, I was often appointed as a team member on committees tasked with upgrading budgetary, managerial, and manpower functions through the acquisition of computer equipment and associated software. I'm also experienced in management analysis, budgetary and financial systems, funding projects for fish and wildlife management, manpower evaluations, and community leadership. The latter includes faith-based activities too numerous to mention.

Development Projects

Africa Research & Development Project (2000-2002). This initiative focused on evaluating functions and performance of executive leadership at state and ministerial levels within the context of development policy and implementing procedures. A comparative analysis of similar functions was conducted at the local level which focused on the impact of ethnic, cultural and social influences on development policy and goal accomplishment. Of particular interest was determining the degree of influence exerted by descendants of African monarchs that may or may not to ensure the success of policy initiatives. We operated on the premise that through our trilateral paradigm—moral leadership, just constitutional and judicial law, and integrating ethical performance criteria into systems of governance, the public's welfare would be assured. The research was conducted in seven African countries (though nine were visited) in collaboration with local scholars, academic institutions, judiciaries, government officials, business executives, community elders (representative of local ethnic, tribal, and indigenous authorities), religious leaders, and members of civil society. It concluded at the University of South Africa in Johannesburg.

Aborigine Education Funding (1992). Over a four-week period, I met with Australian education officials, teachers, NGO’s and concerned community leaders to plan to receive grant funding to achieve educational objectives that were designed to expand Aborigine education in rural areas. This involved training teachers, have them design and implement education programs, and then have them use their newly-acquired teaching skills to educate children in distant areas not normally accessible to educators. Funding would be made available to sustained teachers for longer contractual periods and would supersede the then short-term teacher volunteer program, usually for 3-4 months, after which schools would close and teachers returned to their respective homes, usually located in large urban communities.

Education & Training

The level of educational achieved and its relationship with socioeconomic conditions found in one’s background are influences carried forth that often reflect inequalities to be confronted in adult life, and remains true without regard for social and economic status. My education is expansive and continues in order to keep abreast of new knowledge and seek out innovative approaches to alleviate any outstanding inequalities that might exist. There is no doubt in my mind that this is a lifetime process and what I learn must be put to practical use in ways that benefit human progress. My background includes a graduate Honors program in Development Administration, and undergraduate studies in Business Management. I’ve completed a variety of specialized programs that include Advanced Management, Pacific Asian Business Management, Defense Planning & Systems Management, Information Management Systems & Design and many, many others that broadened my knowledge base, enhanced my skills, and contributed to my advancement in several professional endeavors and in the graphic arts.

Superbly Grounded

The main pillars of my work come from being well-grounded in experience, knowledge, and understanding. One of the main characteristics of my upbringing, education, and training is minimizing theoretical inputs in order to achieve practical hands-on results. This has allowed me to generate my own insights about ways to make important decisions and accomplish difficult tasks. It requires engaging a wide range of methods that include mind, body, and emotions; and develop spiritual awareness to project a balanced perspective that counters an often simplified or over-intellectualized mode of thinking.

A goal without a plan is just a wish

A Vision For The Future

In order to progress above and beyond our current state of social and economic depravity, humanity must now engage a vision of the awesome potential derived by realizing its state of being as an entity-of-one. Time will not wait!

Sustainable Pathways
To achieve progressive futures we must devise the tools required to garner integrated consensus to create and place into effect strategically positioned sustainable pathways. This means championing human diversity to inspire its creative will, validate its spiritual endowment, and reinvigorate its idealism. Once this is underway, humanity will advance through increasingly unified tiers of effort to foster a collective will. Visionary objectives will then provide unimaginable results, i.e., sustainable pathways begin to emit glimmering proof that progressive futures are, in fact, systematically possible to achieved.
Wisdom and intent are entwined to give credence to leadership in ways that are consistent with high moral standards, and ethical norms and practices. It’s a process viewed through the prism of 'Self'. This class of leadership demonstrates integrity, is visionary, it exercises forbearance, has a high capacity for personal sacrifice, and remains committed to a challenge. It’s free of prejudice in its dealings with those of diverse ethnic, cultural, social, and religious persuasions. It is a leadership that maintains an abiding affinity for civic duties, is endowed with enormous energy, shuns nefarious activities, remains undeviating in its commitment to justice, and is vociferous in spearheading positive directional change in human affairs.

The source of Law is at the ‘Crown of the Wheel’ and provides the foundation for stability in progressive societies. It encompasses standards for human rights and remains forefront in its requirements for stabilizing human society and to provide criteria for an international order. The recognition and acceptance of Moral Codes, Ethical Standards, and basic Principles of Conduct are inclusive to law and await transition into a ’Global Ethic’ to serve as a guardian of human rights and, hopefully, a peaceful and ordered world.

Side Note:

The definition of ‘Law’, or what it is, has defied human reasoning through the ages, creating a plethora of conflicting definitions and reasons for its existence. Contrary to scholarly writings, I reference law as being of ‘Divine’ origin, i.e., ‘Crown of the Wheel’, so to speak. From that origin, it evolved based on human interaction through various mediums and dependencies, individual circumstances, and social conditions, to a stage or process of codification. Historical documentation does not reflect a specific developmental process from Divine Law through to codification but provides evidence of its progression to a stage of Ancient Customary Law that’s followed by its characterization as formal Jurisprudence.

Law of the Ancients does not show that law was a written source of reference, but remained as Customary Law through the ages. There are acceptations, notably, the laws revealed by Moses that historical records show evolved to a stage of ‘Code of Law’. There may be such instances recorded in other than Christian sources.

I argue that humankind at no stage in its evolutionary development had the will nor capacity, of its own accord, to conceive and bring into being such a profound concept as the ‘Law’ to guide humanity’s existence. To further my argument, if the origin of law is from a Divine source than problems experienced with its practice after inception is NOT because of what it revealed but relates primarily to interpretation and application of tenets over subsequent periods, which denotes human frailty.

In my view, democratic governance with tolerance and appreciation for humanity’s diversity—its ethnic and cultural persuasiveness, must be encouraged.  One central problem exists, how to remove nefarious activities from political systems.  It stymies the intent and force of law, negates justice, and negatively impacts the underprivileged and the poor. The voice of a global citizenry cries out, seemingly in vain, for law and justice to be demonstrated in social and economic arenas, and in international affairs. Our vision, our hope, rest upon the leadership of sufficient moral quality to take up the challenge to alleviate their lament.

Actionable Issues

Actionable issues require detailed planning and unbridled resolved to employ the resources and creativity required to break the cycle of repetitiveness in order to achieve stated goals and objectives.


Political Corruption

One of the pressing problems that confront most of the political and social systems today is the problem of corruption. Its presence is so prominent that scholars are engaged in conceptualizing its totality. They agree to discuss the problem from two perspectives: historical and contextual.  The problem revolves around a fundamental question: Is it a systemic problem, a non-systemic issue-based problem, or an issue-specific problem?  If it is systemic, much depends upon the system itself, they may find a remedy within that specific system. If it is a non-systemic issue, perhaps the solution to the problem lies with the specific issue discussed.

The problem of corruption, political and social, leads to another factor—one that relates to people’s confidence in the political process and the social wellbeing of the country in question. Any analysis of political and/or social corruption should include an examination of public behavior towards political actors and social extremities. Another important aspect that demands attention is the area of ‘autonomy’, both political and social, which guides and controls the nature of political and social processes.

The problem is vast and seems insurmountable, but workable solutions will require integrated moral, spiritual, and ethical criteria.

‘Nefarious’ describes a person’s actions if they are evil or wicked, and comes from the Latin ‘nefas’, meaning “crime, impiety.” If something is nefarious, it can be both criminal and malicious.

I don’t think it possible to eliminate nefarious activities at this adolescent stage in human evolution; but in some circumstances and under certain conditions, a nefarious activity diminishes if we apply corrective measures within predetermined amenable situations and institutional structures. This will require collaboration, investigation, in-depth analysis, moral courage, and a collective will to engage agreed-upon solutions. Monitoring is mandatory and for certain situations, it may require mentoring.

Actions undertaken will not be an easy task. But it will be a teachable experience and with positive long-term results as more people become interested in protecting social welfare.

Public Discourse

Public discourse involves not only political issues but also calls for society to act on public principles with spiritual perceptiveness* and moral persuasion. These help to shape people's social character because they pertain not only to self-interest but also to a better understanding of social life and their commitment to it. 

There are deeper issues involved, of a psychological and institutional nature, depending on the form of government encountered whether democratic, communist, authoritarian, dictatorial, etc. or some combination of these. At the high end, the public discourse may center on the ability of the government to care for its people. Lower down, it might involve surviving ever-deepening civil strife.

People the world over have similar problems but may experience them differently under their respective governments, societies, cultures, customs, and traditions. Devising solutions to problems means that what’s right for one may not be right for all because each situation has its own unique components.

We should highlight gripping problems in public discourse in ways that elicit positive feedback. We find solutions through expressing human commonalities (core attributes) and factual renderings, and not fallacious assumptions that pertain to race, ethnic, tribal, or indigenous origin, be they of a religious nature or some other gained social illness.  People will then be better able and more willing to put aside their perceived differences and readily embrace solutions that promote the common good.  However, there are no easy fixes to long-standing issues that will require forthright planning and time along with the sustained effort necessary to resolve them.

*In this regard, we do not highlight religious beliefs. Our stance is that spirituality is a basic human commonality that operates within and externally to religious systems.

Emergent Global Ethos

Worldwide, forces in play are stressing humanity’s social and institutional fabrics in ways that reflect the transformative power emitted by a volcanic eruption and the intense heat that emanates from molten lava. Humanity is awash with thralls of discovery, a concrete sign of an emergent global ethos.  The problem we face is that there is no plan in place to guide its unfolding, no means available to guard against becoming overwhelmed.  Leadership, be it as it may, has failed to consider the larger picture, concentrating instead mainly on contrivances to preserve the status quo.

‘As we confront the hard facts of ecological devastation and environmental degradation unfolding on a planetary scale—with overpopulation, famine, war, technology, pollution, and humankind’s misguided hubris prodding the global ecosystem toward the brink of exponential systemic runaway—we do not believe that politics, economics, and business, or science and technology, working independently or with each other, can offer a unified/unifying vision that faithfully reflects the integrated complexity of this World.

We must develop new modes of interacting with each other and with the global ecosystem. It will use the growing emergence of global consciousness to plan a global ethic, an indicator that such a transformation has begun. The move to define, implement and promote a global ethic in business and religion is cause for considerable optimism.

Humankind’s self-awareness is undergoing a radical period of fundamental transformation, and these initially independent efforts to plan a global ethic are evidence that a profound social and cultural evolution is occurring.  As a first step toward recognizing and cultivating a global consciousness, we must experience the earth as an interrelated organic whole.

This requires us to experience and understand cultures and religions from a global perspective,  and to see human history as global history. The movement toward planning a global ethic represents an important and necessary stage in the evolution of human culture, as it moves toward a forming a global society characterized by a newly complexified global consciousness. 

Complicating this task is the paradoxes fostered by the rapid development and inappropriate application of new technologies. The technological advances responsible for our collective transformation are also responsible, in part, for the social and ecological crisis we face on a global scale. Given the complexity of this situation, cultivating global consciousness will not be a sufficient response. We must radically transform our obsolete modes of interacting with each other and the global ecosystem and commit ourselves to develop a viable and sustainable global ethos that will benefit all of humanity.’

Moral persuasiveness backed by ethical considerations and supported by spiritual perceptiveness and the enduring embrace of justice will safely guide the process.

Misguided Media

While we may focus on gauging the positive impact of media, it’s also worthwhile to acknowledge that media practices can undermine what is in the best interest of the public. There is growing concern that the media (i.e., companies and those who exercise journalistic fervor) are engaged in practices that pollute and corrupt political and social discourse. For our purposes, an expansive medium of media would also include cinema, social media, television, radio, and certain elements (characteristics) of the Internet. My purpose is not to demonize but to build a perspective that incorporates a higher vision of media and what it can accomplish if used to educate a global citizenry.

Worldwide we are daily bombarded by media supported commercialism that encourages us to make purchases usually beyond the means of a normal person the result being accrued cycles of reoccurring indebtedness that’s characterized as ‘living beyond your means’.  We spend enormous amounts of time looking at screens (computers, televisions, smartphones, movies) held captive by sensationalism that handicaps and roots us to a physically inactive lifestyle. At almost every turn we are being bombarded with appalling scenes of violence, that, until a short time ago would be unimaginable, now acted out in real-time directly in front of us.

Because we have become deadened by it, media companies use teams of experts to provide even higher drama to excite a people now remote and sufficiently transfixed; off we go smartphone in hand with our eyes cast screen-ward we step from the curb oblivious to the danger posed by oncoming traffic.


Because we are now successfully morphed into a state of psycho-cataclysmic mental stagnation, this causes me to wonder about ways in which longstanding media can transform and success educate, train, excite and propel struggling humanity to a level where it realizes a state of being that’s able to deliver global prosperity.

Inauspicious Economics
In our modern world, everything we do reflects our social, political, and economic ideologies. To understand the failures of our economic system on the scale of an illicit global economy, we must understand how issues such as government theft, drug trafficking, global wealth, money laundering, and the ‘shadow’ financial system contribute to some of our most intractable issues ranging from poverty to hunger, terrorism, and periodic economic crises.

"For humanity to progress, we don’t just require an advanced economy. We require an economy which functions as it should, bringing equity and opportunity to all of its participants. It is essential in this regard that we disconnect politics and economics. Political instruments are the only tools we have to deal with illicit mechanisms, and until politics ceases to be incentivised by economics, the will for action will not exist.

The market does not exist separate from humanity. It is the result of human will and endeavour. Whether we like it or not therefore, we must admit responsibility and accountability for the illicit economy. It did not spontaneously emerge from nowhere… we made it.

Addressing these economic challenges would require fundamental changes in how our world works. Many of these changes would come at a massive perceived cost, but the outcomes- over a number of generations- would exceed even the most utopian vision of a peaceful and equitable world.

--ThoughtEcoomics, June 2012.

Education Reform
Global education is the linchpin of progress. Education is critical to the development of each individual’s potential and to his or her enjoyment of the full range of human rights. Yet nearly twenty percent of the world’s school-aged children will not reach fourth grade. Another twenty percent will not learn basic skills like literacy and numeracy. High dropout and repetition rates, in combination with other obstacles—such as poverty, conflict, gender inequality, language, and disability—compound this problem. What’s required is innovative global education programming tailored to each country and context, and provide ways to strengthen teachers, administrators, government, and the community so they can join the pursuit for the collective effort to achieve quality in the educational system together.

“In the minds of many, the aim of education is limited to empowering the person to achieve material well-being and prosperity, with little regard for his or her responsibility towards others and humanity as a whole. Such a materialistic approach to education will continue to exacerbate the disparity between the wealthy few and the impoverished many - perpetuating the injustices of social stratification and contributing to the increasing instability in the world. If, however, material education goes hand in hand with spiritual education and moral development, it will be the means for ensuring the well-being and prosperity of humanity. Instead of emphasizing competition, education would do well at this point in history to foster the attitudes and skills necessary for cooperation; for the very survival of humankind now depends on our ability to cooperate and on our collective commitment to justice and human rights for all. The ability to cooperate with others will also ensure that increasing numbers of people will benefit from the right to education.”

Innovation is vital to transformation, and everyone should be able to access quality education.  We must encourage students to learn by doing, actively participate in their education, and ask for help when required to ensure their success.

Process & Procedure

The process we employ sets the standard for visionary compliance to resolve actionable issues. It provides procedural details to ensure that policy objectives are met to advance global human development.



Policy initiatives and related processes, procedures, functions, and performance are evaluated in reference to global human development and it, as well as all associated activities, must remain integral to the dictum that 'humankind resides scientifically comfortable in its oneness as a species', the guiding principle that signifies momentous events yet to be revealed.

Assessment includes the information gathered from processes and procedures, analysis of actions taken to resolve major issues, and summarizes monitoring and feedback. The results are presented to stakeholders, administrators, and management so that issues can be reviewed and corrective measures devised. Assurances are given that planning, policy guidelines, and overall goals and objectives remain congruent with the overriding guiding principle (Quintessence). These methodologies are designed to maintain institutional focus, and guards against failure to plan long-term and to plan globally.
Action Plan
Planners, stakeholders, administrators, managers, and leaders collaborate to formulate solutions to major problems encountered. The assessment may reveal that a lack of knowledge and weaknesses in training are the primary culprits hindering the successful completion of those processes needed to realize desirable results. Serious consideration is given to establishing a ‘center for collective knowledge’ where comprehensive education and training programs are organized then implemented to assist frontline actors in their efforts to resolve challenging issues.
With intervention, leadership takes steps as outlined in the action plan and starts the implementation process. Leadership advises frontline actors of the series of changes taking place and revel desirable changes made to the action plan. In the case, the new Center for Collective Knowledge means organizing the education and training programs in a way that’s least disrupt ongoing strategic operations.
Evaluation within the planning process examines the role of strategic requirements and the implications for successful goals accomplishment.  We emphasize evaluation and the functions instrumental in all global human development planning processes, especially the interrelationships that exist between administrators, managers, and stakeholders that relate to planning, policy, and procedures for implementation, monitoring, and followup.
After evaluation and testing the success metrics of the action plan, the stakeholders and leadership must determine if the changes made will then be a new update adopted to the organization policy.
Consistency is necessary for policy implementation to avoid confusion and untimely delays. Strategy to advance global human development is complex, operates across and within borders, and involves diverse social constructs and stakeholders in a variety of diversified settings. Compliance with the stated requirements is important, and any deliberate breaches of policies or procedures are dealt with in the manner most appropriate.
Policy maintenance refers to keeping the policy or program in place after we adopt it.  Policy monitoring refers to detecting how the policy is performing. To monitor a policy, we must get data about the policy. A good implementation plan will suggest ways in which we can generate ongoing information about the policy from records, documents, and feedback from leadership and stakeholders.

Correcting institutional failure to plan long-term and to plan globally


Make a commitment to serve the global community by uplifting the well-being of humankind. Join a team of likeminded individuals to use your innate creative abilities and talents to consult and help devise enduring criteria, based on core human commonalities to supersede current anachronistic socio-economic policies and methodologies, that might ultimately assist in securing humanity's progress into the future.

This will require stepping outside the norm, and at times be challenged by those who may misperceive your intentions. Getting involved means having clear intentions, true vision, confidence, and an enduring will supported by a strong constitution.

Understandably, its highly probable that our work will not appeal to the faint-hearted.

Collective Interest

As members of a dedicated entity, the staff and volunteers at Prallagon have a strong and shared interest in defining, planning, creating, implementing, and managing innovative development policy platforms. Their sacrificial endeavors and willingness to serve is beyond questionable.


We seek people willing to contribute to global human development discourse through online volunteerism. They can be from anywhere in the world, using any device, and work together to address policy issues and those enormous challenges we face, due, in part, to an emergent global ethos.
