on a worldwide scale. Globalized criminal dementia. The attacks
on the twin towers in New York and the Pentagon in Washington have
knocked the weak thread that maintains our civilization out of whack.
We cannot know the motive or reason for the attack. We cannot understand
the logic or the meaning behind it. We are simply staggered by shock
and stupor. This did not happen because someone failed in his job.

for this genocide.
cannot be changed with more barbarity, but with civilization. Spreading

is a way of defending ourselves from the beasts who do not know
how to channel their frustration. We have the duty of understanding
the essence of our civilization, and we have the duty of using this
understanding for persuasion.
