Quote by Bianca Jagger
There is a question for which we will never know the answer: had the U.S. not launched the Contra war to overthrow the Sandinista government, would they have succeeded in bringing socioeconomic justice to the people of Nicaragua?
This quote suggests that there is an unanswered question about whether the United States' intervention in the form of the Contra war hindered the possibility of achieving socio-economic justice in Nicaragua under the Sandinista government. It implies that the outcome might have been different if the intervention hadn't occurred, but since it did, we can never know for certain what could have been achieved. The quote poses a historical what-if scenario, highlighting the uncertainty surrounding the long-term impact of external interventions on achieving societal goals.
Disease an never be conquered, can never be quelled by emotion's willful screaming or faith's symbolic prayer. It can only be conquered by the energy of humanity and the cunning in the mind of man. In the patience of a Curie, in the enlightenment of a Faraday, a Rutherford, a Pasteur, a Nightingale, and all other apostles of light and cleanliness, rather than of a woebegone godliness, we shall find final deliverance from plague, pestilence, and famine.
