Today, the mankind is living under the shadow of sudden death. It appears that we have come to the end of our journey. Now we stand on the brink of complete and final destruction. The earth has become a dangerous place. It may explode to pieces at any moment.
Man has been living on this earth for thousands of years. It has been giving him everything he needed. Then, why it has become so dangerous. The only thing responsible for this is science and its inventions.
Science has brought more fear and danger than hope and comfort. In the beginning, it appeared to be the greatest friend and helper of man. It promised to overcome disease and death. It promised to end poverty and hunger. It promised to make this earth a paradise, and man an immortal god. What has to accomplished? It has not ended poverty. It has not stopped famines. It has not overcome disease. It has not defeated death.
It is true that science has brought many comforts to man. Science has, no doubt, made it possible to produce things in great quantities. It has brought the gift of industrialization. But this very gift is a poison for a greater part of mankind. The advanced and powerful nations exploit and depress the weak and small peoples. The strong countries are becoming longer and the weak ones weaker. It is science and its inventions that make it possible. It has destroyed the old social system. It has broken up the established institutins. But it is has not produced a better and happier world.
In the past, man lived in a happy world. There was enough food for all. He loved his neighbours and respected his elders. His life was simple. He did not have the so-called blessings of science, but he did not need them. Of curse, there were wars and famines sometimes. But their effects were limited. The number of people who died in all the wars and famines of the past is probably less than those who have been killed in the road accidents in the last fifty years.
