QM #4

And I thought that, say, fifty years ago, that this would happen, that these revolutions [quantum mechanics, relativity] and advances in science would have an effect on mankind - on morals, on sociology, whatever. It hasn't happened. We're still up to the same things, or, well, I think, regressed in values. There's this terrible thing [cold war]
- between the United States and the Soviet Union, we might destroy the world. What differences are there between them, except some ideas - not too well-founded - about the distribution and manufacture of the world's goods?
