Human history becomes more and more a race between education and catastrophe.

“Working to beat the devil – Eskimo medicine man exorcising evil spirits from a sick boy”, ca.1900-30.

"Working to Beat the Devil" sounds like it could be the name of an upbeat gospel song.

Now I have found my calling. I want to become an Eskimo medicine man!
