He writes:
“May I be bold enough to suggest a simple test? Sit face to face with a child – any child, anywhere – and looking them in the eye, say plainly: ‘I am doing everything in my power to safeguard your future and life with this earth.’ May I be doubly bold to say that at this moment, you cannot truthfully speak this way to any person, let alone to the child.”
