The Fundamental Needs of Humans
We, the people, live in this world made from our billions of ancestors. Our history is not the result of kings and battles, although they shaped us. Our history is the struggles and triumphs of all people to meet their fundamental needs. These needs, common to us all, express themselves differently across time and place. People have coalesced into communities, which have given rise to civilizations.
