Moral Transformation – No evidence of the only hope

What H. G. Wells called “a mechanical unification of the world” he saw as “demanding profound moral and ideological readjustments”- while the necessary “mental and moral adaptation is lagging dreadfully behind the change in our conditions”. Wells also expresses his “deep disrespect” for the concept of the dignity of human history, which he characterises as “pure comedy, if it were not so largely tragic, so frequently dismal, generally dishonorable and occasionally quite horrible.”
The need for sensitivity and a “world heart” is expressed: Wells advocates that global environmental problems, the “massacre of important animals” and the waste and exhaustion of resources, should be “matters of universal knowledge and concern,” and he warns against the awesome destructiveness of bomb technology.
