  1. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    So much happens these days,
  2. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    the triple evolutions called Cybernetics, Human rights, Weaponry
  3. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    I guess much happen happened on the month has happened on the century
  4. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    And I think we have to call upon not politicians these days but observers,
  5. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    Anthropologists, Sociologists, Psychologists.
    Doctor Margaret Mead; all three of these.
  6. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    the coming of age,
  7. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    in somewhere all the box are follows, new guinea
  8. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    male or female
  9. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    Doctor, where do we begin?
  10. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    We're told that we have so much to offer to underdeveloped countries.
  11. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    We speak of primitive societies in a very patronising way, don't we?
  12. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    Well, some of us do, but in general we call them developing or emerging nations today,
  13. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    which is not as patronising because it is recognising not where they've been but where they're going.
  14. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    And, certainly people all over the world who've been exposed to, during and since World War II,
  15. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    to the new possibilities that are offered by the whole scientific revolution, want what we have.
  16. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    They don't want their children to die, they want themselves to be able to live longer,
  17. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    they want all the new possibilities of the modern world.
  18. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    So when we say WE, it's because we identify ourselves with the special products of our own type of civilisation.
  19. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    Something we have, because there aren't things we haven't got that they have, wouldn't you say?
  20. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    Well, but it doesn't make very much sense to say we don't have what they have, I mean
  21. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    we don't have the simplicity of living at the dawn of the world, and we'll never...
  22. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    it's like going back and trying to regain lost innocence.
  23. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    Uh, we would like to have some of the things of which they have in earlier form,
  24. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    uhm, just as they have an earlier form of technology,
  25. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    we now have a later form of technology which is far better.
  26. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    Now, we haven't yet later forms of human community that are as much better as our techological forms.
  27. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    But nevertheless, to live in the society where you regard a hundred and eighty million people as fellow citizens,
  28. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    and to hurt or kill one of them is uhm, regarded as doing something to your own, is great improvement
  29. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    to living in a society where there are a hundred and eighty people that you regard as human beings,
  30. Ne Sinchronizuotas
    and you regard the rest of it, the whole rest of every human being you've ever met as nothing.
