All the ramifications of Greek thought and activity are not known. Nevertheless, in all nations, enough has been written and spoken by students of Art, of Science, of Religion, of Philosophy, of Politics and Economics, to make it evident that our foundation is also, to some degree, theirs. Moreover, the ancient site of Delphi has been for centuries, and is today, a strategic center between north and south, connecting Central Europe with the Mediterranean. [...] Delphi therefore is the chosen center where a new Temple must be built; not one of marble columns, but a temple whose pediment shall be Education, Economy and Justice for the whole earth.
