civilized.

Standard

one of my favorite people with a statement that still applies 60 years later

 · “no moral, no message, no prophetic tract, just a simple statement of fact.

for civilization to survive, the human race has to remain civilized.”

  1. Great quote from “The Shelter.”

    It’s amazing how some of the “lessons” or “morals” from shows like Star Trek and The Twilight Zone still are just as powerful and meaningful today as they were back in the 60’s.

  2. This man was wise in many ways. He foresaw the way they have now defined some people and some activities as “essential” and “non-essential” and even produced a very good episode about it and this quote, this way of thinking that you have shown us that he said is also very profound. I am a fan.

  3. that may of been true then but not these days. If everyone became “civilized” but the population increased to 15 billion,we would kill each other with our sheer numbers. We would drain the oceans,forests and all resources! Which would have the affect of making us very uncivilized I suspect?
