Having recently reached my 90th birthday, this essay is easy for me. The “GOLDEN RULE”, “Do unto others as you would have done unto you”.

No one can survive alone in this world and as it gets smaller we are ever more dependent on each other. Is there anyone who does not understand this simple commandment? Technology is speeding us to ever smaller, more lethal, more portable weapons. Time is short, we must figure out how to live together or we will die together. Living species that can’t adapt to change perish. Homo-sapiens is no different.
