This would help energize people around them. He said that learning about new cultures, paradigms should be ingrained as age should not be a factor for learning and everyone should learn to question as the hierarchy of ideas is more important than that of men and women.

He said that performance which should be a mix of hard work, smartness, honesty and integrity would lead to recognition then  respect and finally power.
