    Aleteia: As anyone who has studied history knows, the man-made evils the world faces today – war, terrorism, abortion, poverty, and the rest – share an ancient provenance. Technology can increase or diminish the scale of these evils, and in some cases it can even introduce novel expressions of them, but on a fundamental level we moderns wrestle with the same moral pathologies, both personal and social, as our ancestors. Truly, “What has been, that will be; what has been done, that will be done. Nothing is new under the sun!” (Ecclesiastes 1:9)
