“It is impossible to so forecast any future conditions that depend upon the evolution of society as to be able to govern our conduct by such a forecast; it is always the unexpected that happens, for we have to recognise not only the immediate change that is to take place, but also the reaction back upon this of the whole world within which the change takes place, and no human foresight is equal to this… What we have is a method and a control in application, not an ideal to work toward.”

—George Mead
