My dear,

We’ve invented missiles that destroy nations, but no one here is strong enough not to use them. We’ve invented lies that seduce countries, but no one here is strong enough to tell the truth.

Weapons of mass destruction riddle our culture – they’re easy to find, but where are the weapons of mass creation and mass love and mass understanding?

Science has made us gods before we are worthy of being men.

We are children playing with toys labelled ‘for adults only’… sooner or later, we will get hurt.

Let’s change that.

Falsely yours,
Jean Rostand
