For Global Peace with Social Justice in a Sustainable Environment

 Civilization

"Formerly, men were made slaves under physical compulsion. Now they are enslaved by temptation of money and of the luxuries that money can buy. There are now diseases of which people never dreamt before, and an army of doctors is engaged in finding out their cures, and so hospitals have increased. This is a test of civilization."

"This civilization takes note neither of morality nor of religion."

"Civilization seeks to increase bodily comforts, and it fails miserably even in doing so."

Civilization is not an incurable disease, but it should never be forgotten that the English people are at present afflicted by it.”

“Civilization is like a mouse gnawing while it soothing us."
