Human society has always had its problems and even more so in our times. But the larger the number of problems the larger the number of agencies seeking to solve them grows. Why do we have to solve every problem with which the world is confronted? Why can't we leave them alone, indifferent, and attend solely to our own problems? Why must we meddle in affairs we ill understand? The answer is that we fail to see that the world is itself the great problem for which there is no solution.
