Annotation:
The author describes what he considers traditional ways to think about human needs and power along with empirical data to support a mental model of human values. The hierarchy of needs from the world of psychology and the hierarchy of power from the world of diplomacy provide a structure for the model. The author proposes that empirical data collected from several nations from the 1970s through the early 21st century support the structure. The author's examination of specific trends in this data for specific values indicates to him that it is possible to achieve a sustainable world driven by sustainable values. The author demonstrates how his model allows one to address terrorism based on the assumption that the lack of social equity or the perception of that lack determines the likelihood of terrorism.
