“The stakes are immense, the task colossal, the time is short. But we may hope — we must hope — that man’s own creation, man’s own genius, will not destroy him. Scholars, indeed all men, must move forward in the faith of that philosopher who held that there is no problem the human reason can propound which the human reason cannot reason out.”
It is too easy to view world events and abandon hope. We’re all doomed!!
But not only is hope possible, it is required – a mission and a duty for all caring human beings – for finding a way out of the mess we have made.
