Quote [58] – Hunger, War, Misery … Abundance .. Science, Knowledge

“Think how our world would look to a visitor from another planet as he crossed the continents.  He would find great cities and knowledge able to create enormous abundance from the materials of nature.  He would witness exploration into understanding of the entire physical universe, from the particles of the atom to the secrets of life.   He would see billions of people separated by only a few hours of flight, communicating with the speed of light, sharing a common dependence on a thin layer of soil and covering of air.  Yet he would also observe that most of mankind was living in misery and hunger, that some of the inhabitant of this tiny, crowded globe were killing others, and that a few patches of land were pointing huge instruments of death and war at others.  Since what he was seeing proved our intelligence, he would only wonder at our sanity” Make gentle the life of this world
