I'll end with one of my favourite quotes, from Jung: "Our rationalistic attitude leads us to believe we can work wonders with international organizations, legislation, and other well-meant devices. But in reality only a change in the attitude of the individual can bring about a renewal in the spirit of nations. Everything begins with the individual."
