For the last Friday Quote of the year, I give you a quote of hope for the future:
It is now feasible to take care of everyone on Earth at a higher standard of living than have ever known. It no longer has to be you or me. Selfishness is unnecessary. War is obsolete. It is a matter of converting high technology from weaponry to livingry.
R. Buckminster Fuller
I don’t think we, as a species, have quite reached this point. Still, I have hope that one day humanity will reach it.
