Interesting article in Newsweek on a recent statement done by Barack Obama ; reminds me this article from the NYT published a few months back.

Extract: “We have amazing new systems and tools for communicating information.

Francois Rabelais wrote “science without conscience is but the ruin of the soul”. It was the middle of the … 16th century.
