               “Help is desperately needed exactly now.              

For exactly at the time when the fatal knowledge of how to destroy the entire human race has fallen forever into our hands, the knowledge of morality has fallen out.

Exactly when the vehicle of our history has gotten a souped-up engine, we have lost the road map.

Exactly when our toys have grown up with us from bows and arrows to thermonuclear bombs, we have become moral infants.”
