An Op-Ed by IDC Board of Trustees Neemat G. Frem, taken from his speech at the Model U.N. in New York.
“Everywhere, as the world grows smaller, many recoil, retreat, and seek out in the confidence in fundamentals of ages past, where certain, simple knowledge could be contained, as if in a box. And yet progress in science and technology should not fill us with absolute certainty or arrogance but, rather, with a profound humility. For with each advancement, we come to understand our very precariousness, our vulnerability, and our deepest longings of interdependence – put simply, our need to love and be loved. And so how can progress and reaction be reconciled?’
