T 51 – The Trilateral Commission at 25: 1973 - 1998: Between Past and Future

Intelligent men came drifting in from the sea and from the west border,
And with them, and with you especially
There was nothing at cross purpose,
And they made nothing of sea-crossing or of mountain-crossing,
If only they could be of that fellowship,
And we all spoke out our hearts and minds, and without regret.

from Li Po (701-762?)
[Tr. from the Chinese by Ezra Pound]
