A global chal­lenge

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

The US pres­i­den­tial elec­tions have been a grip­ping spec­ta­cle, not only be­cause they were ugly and di­vi­sive but also be­cause of what is at stake in Amer­ica and the world. The great chal­lenges the planet faces de­mand unity of spirit and co­op­er­a­tion – from the need to adapt to glob­al­iza­tion so as to achieve greater equal­ity and jus­tice, to try­ing to deal with cli­mate change. The new US pres­i­dent will have to work hard to heal the di­vi­sions this cam­paign re­vealed and ex­ac­er­bated. If this chal­lenge is not met, it will have nei­ther the will nor cred­i­bil­ity to lead ef­forts to deal with global prob­lems. At a time when lead­er­ship every­where is strug­gling, no one needs a dis­tracted Amer­ica. With the elec­tion over, with the great prob­lems in the US and the world clear to all, it is time for all lead­ers to fo­cus on poli­cies that will not only serve their own na­tion but will ben­e­fit all.
