Faced with the current chaotic world situation, we could best be
spiritually supported by the following wise philosophres maxims.
“There will be no end to the troubles of states, or of humanity itself,
till philosophers become kings in this world.”
“Heaven’s vengeance is slow, but sure.”
*Saint- Exuperi (The Little Prince)
“It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is
invisible to the eye.”
“We think too much and feel too little.More than machinery, we need humanity; more than cleverness we need kindness and gentleness.”
“The world has enough for everyone’s need, but not enough for everyone’s greed.”
“If you make a mistake and do not correct it, this is called a mistake.”
“ Those who resort to blandishments and fawning smiles are apt to lack integrity.
These maxims are at the root of my persistent plea for a maternal civilization and a UN Ethics Summit.
They implicitly allow us to consider nuclear energy as immoral and to foresee the accomplishment of true denuclerization according to the law of history that does not allow immorality to last for long.
Please allow me to count on your understanding and support.
