Part one of this paper identifies some crucial issues of the topic and develops a framework for a methodology of optimising development decisions in technology transfer for social stability and sustainable society development, which is the focus in the follow up second part. On the grounds of Professor Mansour's systems science approach and his philosophy of fairness and justice, and of ethics and ecumenical religious tolerance, it can be clamed that different standards and preconditions countries of so called Western Civilisation introduced insofar into tackling the issues of the globalisation are not justified in the eyes and consciousness of individual and collective anti-globalisation opposition. The issues and problems of a 'fairness' transfer of both knowledge and technology to the so-called Third World may well become a crucial tool for enhancing the positive effects of the globalisation. And, moreover, without this emphasis on the fairness and justice paradigm it seems no new world order can be achieved, but rather it may well turn into replica of some of the past empires with the new horror of sophisticated military.
