Cycles: Fate, or Fiction?

"Stop the world, I want to get off!" This cry, the title of a recent musical play, may express the yearning of much of mankind to escape the doom of the persistent cycles of human life. Business activity rises and falls in cycles of inflation and depression, of oversupply and undersupply, of labor strife and a fragile peace. Life itself seems to be a continuous cycle of happiness and sorrow, health and sickness, birth, growth, maturity, and death.

Is it really the fate of mankind to be forever subject to these depressing cycles? No! To believe so would be to condemn mankind to endless suffering, sorrow, and disease. Such a fate would offer mankind little hope of gaining real happiness or success.
