What's wrong with us? Why aren't we, as a society, changing for the better?
Don't give me crap about progress. Here's how progress really goes: "We all want progress. But progress means getting nearer t the place where you want to be. And if you have taken a wrong turning, then to go forward does not get you any nearer. If you are on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; and in that case the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive man…And I think if you look at the present state of the world, it is pretty plain that humanity has been making some big mistake. We are on the wrong road. And if that is so, we must go back. Going back is the quickest way on."
               -C.S. Lewis

This guy's got it all down pat.
