PEACE REQUIRES CORRECT DEFINITION

From the December 1950 issue of The Christian Science Journal


TOWARD universal peace and harmony more and more significant progress can be made by careful definition of the terms we use and by strict adherence to the meaning assigned to them. Ever since the building of the tower of Babel was frustrated by the sudden division of men into groups speaking different languages (see Genesis 11), mankind has seemed to face that same frustration in the degree that it has failed to learn the lesson that accurate speech, accurately understood, is essential for unity and achievement.
