Historical Symbolic Incidents in these 500 Years
Symbolic incidents in the centuries since Columbus reached America about 500 years ago should be as follows:
1500 or so: Columbus reaches America.
1600 or so: Shakespeare contributes to English literature.
1700 or so: Newton contributes to physics and mathematics.
1800 or so: Napoleon contributes to modern political regimes in Europe.
1900 or so: Einstein contributes to advanced physics.
2000 or so: The Islamic terror comes to have a dangerous momentum.
What I mean is when you discuss the world of today, including the Greek Crisis, the Islamic nation, and race-related shooting crimes in the US, you have to think about underlying influences of those symbolic incidents.
Put simply, mankind will not be able to govern themselves equipped with modern technologies and social/political/economic theories without stronger control based on stronger faith in God.
The human beings have entered a very dangerous era in my view. We have to refer to the history to address this situation with full of hidden dangers concerning not only material conditions but also spiritual frameworks of the human society.
