In this day and age we have grown accustomed to the cry of "crisis." There is a "crisis" in Southeast Asia, a "crisis" in Berlin, and the astute observer will take note of countless less dramatic but surely no less important "crises" on the homefront. Without at all questioning the urgency of these confrontations, it is possible to view them as focal points of political and social unrest, evidence of the contact and friction, which are produced whenever ideas and forces compete in favor.
