That means that to overcome the indifference and unawareness in men regarding the survival of species and the planet in the 21st Century, there is need to liberate the minds of men and the society at large.Thus this requires a collective and systemic approach.A moral responsibility of all and sundry.

Seems to me the mind is unfathomable brain system of billions of neurons pulsing-processing electrical signals both conscious and unconscious (thoughts, feelings,motor messages, etc)."The functions of the mind include:perceiving, thinking, imagining, remembering, planning, reasoning, speaking, understanding words, emotional experience, unconscious processing". ("The Mind", John Taylor). The implications of "free will" in terms of moral responsibility - conscience for society and planet survival is mysterious to me Seems to me too much indifference or unawareness - of "survival of the species and the planet in the 21st Century" ?

I quite agree with Daniel Webster. No wonder Allan Claxon maintained that the treacherous unexplored areas of the world are not in the continent neither are they in the seas but are in the hearts and minds of men.
