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

Bertrand Russell’s Message to the Future; ca. 1959.

“…in this world, which is getting more and more closely interconnected, we have to learn to tolerate each other. We have to learn to put up with the fact that some people say things that we don’t like.”

Man, this guy was just starting to see how information was being sent more quickly and at higher quality and said something so incredibly forward-thinking. That’s amazing.

Can you imagine showing this dude the fact that we can send cat-videos instantly? This would blow his mind.
