Values and Morals for a Viable Future
If H. G. Wells were alive today he might write as follows, though of course in better style. “As Charles Dickens might say, ours is the worst of times and also the best of times. It is the worst of times because humankind is quickly digging its own grave. It is the best of times because never before has humankind had so many powerful means to bring about a bright future. The lemmings jump off the cliff to their deaths because they have never heard of continental drift. But we know better, so we need not keep on marching blindly. We are still in time to turn away from the cliff. But the time is getting shorter by the day.”
