Modern technilogy never fails to impress and fascinate me. I can see the big srtride that Man has made from the pony express delivered messages to global instantaneous megahertz messages sent millions of times a day all over the world. Why, that alone should alert global leaders to modern means for humans to desist fom waging wars, and work for peace which can be achieved and so easily instead of waging (ugh) war.
Being a media man - first a Journalist from college, I have sat in the fringes of activities of and by media and the way societies respond to them. When there were no radio, tv and little cinema we communicated current events only through the newspapers. That is why we developed that "habit" of reading the daily papers before anything else starts in our lives.
Then I went into radio acting and directing, television and cinema production. All these inventions were wonderful and rewarding - but would it not be more rewarding if they were used to improve relationships between peoples of different lands?
I pause for a reply or comment.
