Effective Protest

From the January 1972 issue of The Christian Science Journal

We live in an age of protest.

Students protest against outmoded administrative policies; taxpayers protest against the free spending of legislators; adults protest against teen-age rebellion; people of all ages protest against racial injustice, war, poverty; protestors protest against other protestors.

Everyone seems to be against something, and rightly so in many cases where evil is being detected and overturned. But are enough effective, permanent solutions to the problems of today really being found? Are the basic errors in human experience —self-interest, envy, greed, hatred, distrust, revenge, which result in misery, disease, and death—being dealt with properly? If they were, violence and war, poverty and sickness, would dissipate more rapidly.
