A man who heard me speak in a philosophical society in the 1980's decided to become St. John the Baptist and to play the saint's role! He sent me a paper on the state of the world which starts with this paragraph:
"We are in a state of institutionalized inhumanity. The rich have gotten richer while our other brothers and sisters in God live in poverty, hunger and without adequate housing or medical care. This has been done in the name of free enterprise. The powerful are free to ignore and exploit the poor. We have become the new Sodom and Gommorah, the cities in the Bible destroyed because of their wickedness. This is now far worse because it is global."
I love the words 'institutionalized inhumanity' which describe so adequately the institutional situation of our world today. We should also speak of institutionalized antinature.
I sent him the following note:
Thank you for your letter of 29 April. I love in particular the first paragraph in which you used the excellent words of 'institutionalized inhumanity'. May many more people imitate you and play the role of great saints, prophets, visionaries, seers, outer space beings, departed ancestors and give us their messages. May many rich people become Franciscans and make the vow poverty. A better world would ensue.

The human family, emerging from its checkered past, is still dominated by competition, power contests and glory seeking, while in the natural family cooperation and love are the dominant values. A wonderful, new historic era will soon begin, when cooperation and love will predominate the world. The first examples we see at the United Nations are full of promise.*
