The Task Ahead

"The task ahead is gigantic if we are to avoid more personal, national, and even international tragedies based on unpredictability, insecurity, fears, anxieties, etc., which are steadily disorganizing the functioning of the human nervous system. Only when we face these facts fearlessly and intelligently may we save for future civilizations whatever there is left to save, and build from the ruins of a dying epoch a new and saner society. ...A non-aristotelian re-orientation is inevitable ; the only problem today is when, and at what cost."
—Alfred Korzybski, Introduction to the Second Edition 1941, Science and Sanity
