As you say, Abwehr, this mullah is no great intellect. It is a vague article, which depends upon prejudice. But I do think that he is trying to contemplate some of the problems which beset both Western and Third World nations. The quote which he provides, to me, does have some meaning:
The well-known American psychologist Dr. Henry Link writes: Science does not have remedies for complicated life problems. Science is not the source of happiness, for more scientific advancement means more complicated life. Unless these free sciences are unified and placed in the frame of clear facts of life, they will inevitably lead to decay in minds and total collapse. It is faith only that can play this important role.
The lack of any faith and morality in our societies is a most destructive thing. What to do about it puzzles me - I am inclined to say that education must become more conservative, in the sense of requiring people to learn of the most elevated aspects of human culture.
The lack of any faith and morality in our societies is a most destructive thing.
I don't know where you are living, but I see faith and morality all time. There seem to be plenty of posters to this board who have both. Rather than any, do you mean universal? That can't be achieved in a free society.
