When has this ever not been said? Can we really speak for "humanity" like this?It is humanity which has gone astray.
I would argue that we are getting un-strayed right quick these days. Civil rights...never before in history has such a thing existed as what we have now. Some people see the light dawning, then look to their feet and curse the dawn for showing them their shadow. I think this is the best humanity has done in a long time. We should be grateful for what is now, even as we hope to make it better as what will be.
Never let a dream cast shadow on the light of the world. This is backwards. (or so I say to myself ... :P )
