Quote of the day 2nd October 2020

"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.
