Whenever we confront the emergence of the new,

…there is the recalcitrance of the old. And so tensions which we witness in the world today are indicative of the fact that a new world is coming into being, and an old world is passing away. Now, we are all familiar with the old world—the old order that is passing away, we have seen it, and we have lived with it. We have seen it in all of its dimensions. We have seen it in its international dimensions in the form of colonialism and imperialism. — MLK, 1958 Commencement Address, Morgan St College
