More than any other time in history, mankind faces a crossroads. One
path leads to despair and utter hopelessness. The other, to total
extinction. Let us pray we have the wisdom to choose correctly. I
speak, by the way, not with any sense of futility, but with a panicky
conviction of the absolute meaninglessness of existence which could
easily be misinterpreted as pessimism. It is not. It is merely a
healthy concern for the predicament of modern Man. (Modern man is here
defined as any person born after Nietzsche's edict that "God is dead,"
but before the hit recording "I Wanna Hold Your Hand.")
