His 1927 decision to work always and only for all humanity led him to address the largest global problems of poverty, disease and homelessness.He realized early on that by examining global problems in the context of the whole system—the whole planet—he would have the best chance of identifying large-scale trends that would allow him to anticipate the critical needs of humanity.
