Live Long And Prosper, Already
Gene Roddenberry, the creator of the amazingly popular Star Trek series, was a man ahead of his time. Here is one of the things he to say about humanity and our problems (with one editorial comment from me!):
“I believe in humanity. We are an incredible species. We’re still just a child creature, and we’re still being nasty to each other [Stephen Harper: are you listening?]. And all children go through those phases. We’re moving into adolescence now. When we grow up, man, we’re going to be something!”
Enjoy this video, Earth Trek – The Challenge:
“If man is to survive, he will have learned to take a delight in the essential differences between men and between cultures. He will learn that differences in ideas and attitudes are a delight, part of life’s exciting variety, not something to fear. ” ~ Gene Roddenberry
I found this video on Sustainable Man’s YouTube channel. If you want to see more, you can find Sustainable Man on Facebook or on YouTube. There’s a blog, too, but it hasn’t been updated in over two years.
