"In the course of human history men have organized into larger and larger groups, so that today all mankind is a single group. They are not conscious of this, yet it is a reality. All mankind today shares a common function. No longer are there separate groups of human beings, as was the case until just yesterday. A single interest unites them and causes them to function as a single living organism. No phenomenon can affect one human group without affecting others as a consequence. To put it a better way, the interest of any one group is the interest of all" (Montessori, 2007, p.98)
