Mohammed Fahad Al-Harthi
We know stories of individuals who had the vision to produce change. Steve Jobs, the successful founder of Apple, had a clear vision for the future and, as a result, was able to produce the most successful company of our time. As he once famously said: “Innovation distinguishes a leader from a follower.”
Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030 is a comprehensive one which seeks to transform the entire state into a new country that ranks high among the developed nations.
It is unfair to reduce Vision 2030 only to its economic side, despite the importance of that component,as the vision also includes social, humanitarian, developmental, military, and performance aspects.
I think there are critical aspects of this vision that have yet to gain full attention. Social values, as the vision says, “will be based on moderation, tolerance,
perfection, discipline, justice, and transparency, and our focus will be on achieving growth of these values and areas.”
These are important elements for the next stage as the vision seeks to achieve a productive society rather than a consuming one.
The principles of tolerance and moderation are a cure for many social phenomena that arise from those whose aim is to spread extremism and radicalization.
I Word Understanding
Social phenomena-it involves one person’s observable behavior influencing another person.
Extremism- belief in and support for ideas that are very far from what most people consider correct or reasonable.
Radicalization-the idea that people freely choose to do terrible things is one that we find hard to accept.
