Man’s greatest single task today is to develop in himself the power of non-violence.  Everything he does violently, for example, in agriculture, could also be done relatively non-violently, that is gently, organically, patiently adapted to the rhythms of life.  The true task of all further research and development is surely to devise non-violent methods of reaching the results which man requires for his existence on earth.

~ E.F. Schumacher, 1967
