"The real problem of humanity is this:
We have palaeolithic emotions, medieval institutions, and Godlike technology."
((American biologist Edward O Wilson, known as the "founder of sociobiology.")
For the avoidance of doubt: quoting the above is not meant as an endorsement and I don't 100% agree with it: I do not think it is the whole truth. I do think it makes a useful point about some of the challenges we face which I will come back to in a post today or over this weekend.
