“Arguably, our inability to achieve a deeper, broader morality hitherto - and our seemingly insane race to self-destruction - has stemmed from a lack of true self-value and self-respect, a kind of perpetual adolescence of our species.”

“Our world has changed drastically in the past few centuries; yet we continue to behave in more primitive ways, treating it as limitless and at the same time competing with each other to extract the wealth as quickly and completely as possible. We demonstrate the same tribalism as did our ancestors when living was indeed marginal and other groups of humans were necessarily a threat. This tribalism, transformed today into nationalism, must give way to a more global sense of ourselves and what needs to be protected and valued. Now we are one world more than ever before, a trend that will only grow over time through enhanced technologies of communication and transportation. Now with environmental problems that are truly global in scope, we are all affected by degradation of the environment. Our more unified but ever more finite world calls for a new outlook.”

The book is worth reading, and can be ordered on Amazon.
