#cyberpeacefare #Lewis Mumford Quotes

"Nothing is unthinkable, nothing is impossible to the balanced person, provided it comes out of the needs of life and is dedicated to life's further developments." 

"A good technology, firmly related to human needs cannot be one that has maximum productivity as its supreme goal; it must rather, as in an organic system, seek to provide the right quantity of the right quality at the right time and right place for the right purpose."

(Lewis Mumford was a writer for the New Yorker Magazine.  Applies to Internet/Cyberspace/Cyberpeaefare Technology. AL).
