      There is certainly much truth to that. The sad thing is, there are several scenarios where we run into human resource limitations quickly. If that happens, those with the guns, the anger, and the intolerance take us back to times of great ignorance, and with it, great human suffering and death, something like ‘1984’, or ‘The Handmaid’s Tale.’
