Wisdom on Wednesdays—The philosophy of the future

“The philosophy of the future is based upon the person and no longer upon the mass.  The mass—the mass of anything: humans, machinery, natural resources—is bound up with and subservient to money.  The person is being, superior to mass and in control of wealth.”  (1943)
