Our world continues in its unsteady progress in self-knowledge. Obviously even the strongest super-power shames only itself as it tries to terrorize the terrorists. Its moral disgrace leaves a world back where it started -- either nations ensure justice for each other or eventually destroy each other. Mankind is so designed that it can continue only if free will is guided by love and not by force.
