'We can't go on ignoring inequality, because we have the means to destroy our world but not to escape it...
To do that, we need to break down, not build up, barriers within & between nations. If we are to stand a chance of doing that, the world's leaders need to acknowledge that they have failed & are failing the many. With resources increasingly concentrated in the hands of the few, we are going to have to share more than at present.' - Stephen Hawking.
