Reader comment on Carl Sagan's passage ...

The moral and ethical questions of how we treat others, and the earth's diverse creatures and systems--human and ecological--are big ones, in an age where many exploit others and the planet for symbols of greed and profit. In the world we've created, the winners of money and fame are the losers, pinning their sense of well being on having triumphed over, instead of working with and within and supporting the ecological and human systems of shared value and collective well-being. We need to remake our system of values, so we can live in a world that works for all. Carl Sagan was right, we are at a moral juncture in our understanding, and the earth is at stake. Can we love the earth and each other enough to live from a higher moral principle?
