"All progress is gained through mistakes and their rectification. No good comes fully fashioned, out of God's hand, but has to be carved out through repeated experiments and repeated failures by ourselves. This is the law of individual growth. The same law controls social and political evolution also. The right to err, which means the freedom to try experiments, is the universal condition of all progress."
- Mohandas Gandhi (1869-1948)
I post this to point out that it is important that we (humanity) do not beat ourselves up for the mess that we are in...we must simply recognise it, recognise our role in causing it, recognise our potential to move on from it and...simply move on out of the mess and move on up the evolutionary process...
"Here we go, here we go, here we go!!!"
