The dark nights of our Souls, the hideous conflicts of humanity, the senseless conflicts between Religions and conflicts within Religions are all symptomatic that something is not right The absurd dysfunction of autocratic governments, the spiralling hatred of one group of people against another, the gross disparity in wealth in the world where 1% of the Global  population hold 80% of the wealth, the great shopping malls of the world, bigger than any cathedral promoting consumerism and status and exclusivity against a back drop of extreme Global polarization

There is a famous sentence called the Babcock sentence Based on the assessment of cognition where a patient of normal Intelligence and recall should be able to Repeat One thing a nation must have to be rich and great is a large secure supply of wood

Another version would be

One thing a nation must have to be rich and great is a large secure supply of money and armaments

Are we of normal Intelligence and recall if we really think that this is the truth in a world of finite resources, scarce resources loss of biodiversity, over population, inequity, poverty and hunger.
