Civilisations don’t last forever. Everything comes to an end at some point, and we are all living in an uncertain ‘in-between’ era, where one world is dying and another is doing its best to be born, although one has to admit that there are a hell of a lot of people working hard to try and keep our old unsustainable world alive! I suspect that they’re engaged in a game called Mission Impossible!
I always feel a bit sad that us oldies (and here I mean anyone over 60!) have bequeathed such a challenging inheritance to today’s youth. That said, one reason why I am hopeful is that I think many of the young people of today have a much broader intelligence than we had, as well as the will and the capacity to solve many of the problems that we not only failed to, but in many indirect ways, have often been instrumental in causing.

This essay looks at: a) the state of the world today b) what I see happening on the planet over the next eighty years and c) the new society that I see rising, phoenix like, out of the ashes. It is a hopeful essay but suggests that to get to the light, humanity may need to go through some more dark times… OK, it is time now to look forward and say a few words about what I think might…
