We are the problem, we have the responsibility and we have the authority to deal with the problem.
The things I tell you are not predictions of future. I am only reporting facts and the results of some very simple arithmetic.
You are important people, you can think, and if there was ever the time that the human race needs people who will think, it is right now, it is our responsibility as citizens and democracy, to think. But to be successful with this experiment of human life on earth we have to understand the laws of nature as they are encountered in the study of the sciences and mathematics.
Thinking is very upsetting, it tells us things we should rather not know.
“I do not feel obliged to believe that the same God who has endowed us with sense, reason and intellect, has intended us to forego their use”. Galileo (1584-1682).
“Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored. ” Aldous Huxley.
“It is the nature of human species to reject what is true but unpleasant but to embrace what is obviously false but comforting.” H.L. Mencken.
Eric Sevareid’s Law: “The chief source of problems is solutions”.
“What is lacking is not sufficient knowledge of the solution, but universal consciousness of the gravity of the problem and the education of the billions who are its victims. ” Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
The greatest shortcoming of human race is our inability to understand the simple arithmetic.
