What is "Progress"? Some historical punditry


"You don't stick a knife in a man's back nine inches, and then pull it out six inches, and say you're making progress." --
Malcolm X

"The test of our progress is not whether we add to the abundance of those who have much. It is whether we provide enough to those who have little." - Franklin D. Roosevelt

"All our lauded technological progress -- our very civilization - is like the axe in the hand of the pathological criminal." - Albert Einstein

"Scientific progress makes moral progress a necessity; for if man's power is increased, the checks that restrain him from abusing it must be strengthened" - Madame de Stael (French woman of letters, political propagandist, 1766-1817)

"Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable... Every step toward the goal of justice requires sacrifice, suffering, and struggle; the tireless exertions and passionate concern of dedicated individuals." - Martin Luther King
