"The days of mere protest are over, and the days of separating war, and racism, and pollution of natural resources, and social injustice, and male chauvinism, into neat little compartments are over. I say this with the conviction—and if it sounds apocalyptic, o.k., it is apocalyptic—that unless all men and women of good will realize this very, very soon, and act on it, there will be no future, but an increasing horror followed by annihilation."
