It is interesting to read the words of Emperor Haile Selassie in 1962:
No development in the modern world has been so startling as the revolution in communications. Man’s voice flashes around the earth in split seconds. Distance & time have been annihilated. Our people’s vigour and labour can bear fruit only when communication networks are afforded them.

All any of us can do at this time in our evolution is work towards these great ideals and look hard at where we can utilise these principles into our lives to achieve balance, harmony, one love, hope and union.
