Who has not felt the stimulating and fruitful effects of attacking individual and community tasks with quick decision and courage? And who has not experienced the blighting, demoralizing results of the negative, obstructive attitude, the unwillingness to blend one's efforts with others in the accomplishment of some common good? The latter tendency, due to a rapidly shrinking world, appears to be assuming the proportions of a major problem—for the individual, the nation, and the world. Literally millions of people are beginning to sense the situation and are asking what can be done about it.
