From the June 1941 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Out of the present turmoil of human thought, violently loosened from its old anchorages, a general consensus of opinion seems to be forming that an entirely new way of life must be evolved, so that, national and international confidence being restored, men may unite in peace and spears be turned into pruning hooks, as the prophet expressed it many hundreds of years ago. No one so far has set forth in full detail what shape or form this new way must take, nor has there been a definite lifting of the veil of materialism which has dropped over so much human activity, excepting, it would seem, that of destructiveness and counter destructiveness.
