                                              A Plea


       At the dawn of the 20th Century, an impression was created, that Western civilization dominated by science and jurisprudence would eventually spread across the globe, ushering in a new era of hope and enlightenment. The widespread industrialization was seen as a solution to global poverty, illiteracy, bondage (slavery) and hard labour. It was firmly believed that industrialization and science & technology would usher in an era of peace, prosperity and liberty.
