The final measure of mankind’s humanity…

Cultures can be judged in many ways, but eventually every nation in every age must be judged by this test: how did it treat people? Each generation, each wave of humanity, evaluates its predecessors on this basis. The final measure of mankind’s humanity is how humanely people treat one another.

Francis Schaeffer, quoted in Great Divides by Ronald Nash, p. 19
