"It is now highly feasible to take care of everybody on Earth at a higher standard of living than any have ever known. It no longer has to be you or me. Selfishness is unnecessary. War is obsolete. It is a matter of converting our high technology from WEAPONRY to LIVINGRY."

Three Scary Postings

Well, I managed to find some good news a few days ago, but it's getting swamped.

Eli has some disturbing feedback from overseas.

PS - Not actually stolen from Atmoz's "what I'm reading" list, but might as well have been.
