Postscript


THERE ARE POSSIBILITIES OF UNPRECEDENTED HAPPINESS IN THE DREAMS OF ALL MEN FOR LIFE AND JOY, IN THE DEDICATION OF MULTITUDES THE WORLD OVER STRIVING FOR A BETTER WORLD FOR ALL, AND IN THE ENORMOUS POWERS MAN NOW HAS TO SHAPE THE CONTOURS OF HIS DESTINY. THERE ARE POSSIBILITIES OF UNPRECEDENTED CATASTROPHES IN THE UNRESOLVED HATREDS OF THE HUMAN RACE, IN THE MISERIES OF THE IMPATIENT WRETCHED OF THE EARTH, AND IN THE ENORMOUS POWERS MAN NOW HAS TO SHAPE THE CONTOURS OF HIS DESTINY. HOPE AND DESPAIR -- THESE ANCIENT OPPOSITES ARE WITH US STILL. WHERE SHALL WE TURN FOR A VISION THAT CAN GIVE US THE VICTORY WITHOUT WHICH WE PERISH?
