The Monitor's Role
[The following editorial from The Christian Science Monitor of September 19, 1970, entitled "Our Role and Our Readers," says things we feel would be of interest to all readers of the Sentinel. It is reprinted here in full]
It's been said that we live in an age of astonishing ferment—but such words seem too mild in these wild and apocalyptic times. Our world appears to be one of sheer fantasy in which every day gets crazier. The fantastic of today becomes the commonplace of tomorrow. Our generation grapples not only with crime, drugs, violence, immorality, war, assault on established institutions and breakdowns in the functioning of society, but also with deep and existential confusion within human thinking—the turmoil of upsidedown values.
In such a storm one yearns for a beacon light of sanity and moderation, a voice of calmness, stability, hope, truth. This is the role the Monitor seeks to fulfill. As a newspaper for thinkers, its aim is to tell its readers about events as fairly and objectively as possible, to analyze these events discerningly and impartially, and to encourage its readers to think for themselves.
