We are living in the greatest revolution in history
We are living in the greatest revolution in history--a huge spontaneous upheaval of the entire human race; not the revolution planned and carried out by any particular party, race, or nation, but a deep elemental boiling over of all the inner contradictions that have ever been in man, a revelation of the chaotic forces inside everybody. This is not something we have chosen, nor is it something we are free to avoid.
– quoted from Conjectures of a Guilty Bystander by Thomas Merton
