Evolution or Revolution

I read a quote once that stated, “Evolution and Revolution are the same but one is just faster than the other”. In the light of current events in the world I started thinking on this a little and have a few thoughts here…

Looking back on history of less than 100 years we have had two world wars, they were both destructive, taking many lives and destroying but also recreating the world as we know it now. How would our world be different if there had just been a slower rate of change i.e. Evolution?

It is my opinion that the state of affairs such as politics, religion, technology and many other fields would look much different than they are at present. That being said however; if we are headed for yet another world war, how is that going to alter the world yet again? Is it better for humanity to change fast through the “course” of war or by the slower “practice” of peace?

It boggles the mind to think what might happen, what has happened and how each and every citizen of planet Earth’s life’s could, might and has changed due to developments outside of control of most of us.

The jury is still out on this one for me. I can see the utility and disadvantages of both. Speed is the difference but the results are the same. I do have faith that things are working out the way that they are supposed to.

Be well.
