The primary question confronting humanity in 1976 is: What is justice? What is most important to understand is that justice must contain and control all aspects of human society, including ethics and science. Ethics and science do not contain and control justice, because justice is ultimately the process by which human beings try to adjust, to accommodate, and to harmonize the relationships between and among themselves: relationships including politics, economics, race, sex, religion, and certainly morals, ethics, and science. Justice, in short, dominates any issue which confronts humanity or creates human conflicts.
