A thought: Monday in the Martin Luther King Jr Day holiday. In 1964 King pointed out that technology doesn't make us better people. We could do better then; we could do better now.
There is a sort of poverty of the spirit which stands in glaring contrast to our scientific and technological abundance. The richer we have become materially, the poorer we have become morally and spiritually. We have learned to fly the air like birds and swim the sea like fish, but we have not learned the simple art of living together as brothers.
Martin Luther King's Nobel Lecture, delivered in the Auditorium of the University of Oslo at December 11, 1964
