Global powers will be the countries of contemplation

Gregory Pomerantz : Philosopher, writer, cultural theoriest
New leaders will be the countries that will be able to create a new style of life with making pauses of contemplation and to get rid of activity fever.
"One of the features of the great cultural worlds - the ability to shift and turn in history, the transition from the outward expansion to the internal growth, from centrifugal processes clinging to the contemplation of the spiritual center and repentance for leaving it it."

Gregory Pomerantz, "The decaying tower of Babel", essay
