In Light Of Recent Talk: Aug. 6 Meditation

[Posted by reader_iam]
Everyone is aware of the difficult and menacing situation in which human society--shrunk into one community with a common fate--now finds itself, but only a few act accordingly. Most people go on living their every-day life: half frightened, half indifferent, they behold the ghostly tragi-comedy which is being performed on the international stage before the eyes and ears of the world. But on that stage, on which the actors under the floodlights play their ordained parts, our fate of tomorrow, life or death of the nations, is being decided.
--Albert Einstein, in "The Menace of Mass Destruction"
"Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results."
