Quotation: Sean MacBride on Communication

As communication is so central to all social, economic and political activity at community, national and international levels, I would paraphrase H.G. Wells and say human history becomes more and more a race between communication and catastrophe. Full use of communication in all its varied strands is vital to assure that humanity has more than a history.....that our children are assured a future.
