Fear-proof your future

The time to start is now, not tomorrow.

Is a techno-future in store for us, as many would have us believe, where everything takes second place to a world of computers and robotics? Or will the future look more like the doomsday scenarios put forth in some of the millennium books now crowding into bookstores? With so many people wanting to warn society of a cold, precarious world of the future, one would think that none of us has a say in what lies ahead.

Perhaps it's time for a reminder: don't be fooled by fears and speculations about the future. That's not to say there won't be challenges to face in the days and years ahead. But what's needed is to know that we already have sufficient understanding, courage, wisdom, and creativity to surmount tomorrow's challenges, and to live better and safer lives. This begins in the present. We reap what we sow.

This is the end of the issue. Ready to explore further?
