Disclaimer, disclaimer, disclaimer!!!
The world, according to Isaac Asimov, gains scientific knowledge faster than society gains wisdom.
If true, we are on a trajectory of ever increasing disparity between what we have learned through science, and how we can wisely implement that knowledge through an increasingly archaic society of barbarians
While the wisdom of society may never catch up to the accelerating knowledge of science
We can at least hope that the modern day barbarian will allow science to continue its progress.
And maybe, just maybe the day will come when all wisdom is rooted in knowledge
and the barbarians tune in regularly to
