Pale Blue Dot (short) – Carl Sagan on Humanity (EN►EN/IT)


The Earth is a very small stage
in a vast cosmic arena.

Think of the rivers of blood…

by all those generals and emperors…

so that in glory and triumph
they could become the momentary masters…

of a fraction of a dot.

Think of the endless cruelties visited…

by the inhabitants
of one corner of this pixel…

on the scarcely distinguishable inhabitants
of some other corner.

How frequent their misunderstandings,

how eager they are to kill one another,

how fervent their hatred.

Our posturings,
our imagined self-importance,

the delusion that we have
some privileged position in the universe…

are challenged by this point of pale light.

Our planet is a lonely speck
in the great enveloping cosmic dark.

In our obscurity…

in all this vastness…

there is no hint
that help will come from elsewhere

to save us from ourselves.

The Earth is the only world known, so far,
to harbor life.

There is nowhere else,
at least in the near future,

to which our species could migrate.

Visit, yes.

Settle, not yet.

Like it or not, for the moment,
the Earth is where we make our stand.

It has been said that astronomy
is a humbling…

and character-building experience.

There is perhaps no better demonstration
of the folly of human conceits

than this distant image
of our tiny world.

To me, it underscores our responsibility
to deal more kindly with one another…

and to preserve and cherish…

the pale blue dot,
the only home we’ve ever known.

What is being done to Julian #Assange is not just about the persecution of one man. It's about intimidating journalism. It is about squashing dissent and smothering the peace movement.
It's the corruption, you know, within our government... The UK, a puppet government of the US, does the whatever the US tells them to do.
All we are saying is give PEACE a change! But US and UK don't want you to think or say that out loud. You could be killed for that. In memory of John Lennon, in support of Julian Assange, in hope for Gaza.
