One thought on “The Ship of State

  1. Ahoy says:

    “Are we never to educate ourselves to foresee such dangers and to prevent them before they happen? All the evidence of history shows that laws unknown and unsuspected are being discovered day by day: as this knowledge accumulates for the use of man, is it not certain that the ability to see and destroy beforehand the threat of danger will be one of the privileges the whole world will utilize?”
    Lawrence Beesley, “The Loss of The SS Titanic: Its Story and Its Lessons, by One of the Survivors” (1912). Beesley was an English science teacher, journalist and author who was a survivor of the sinking of RMS Titanic.
