The Challenge of Living in a World of Change

The world we have known is changing. But into what remains to be seen. In the process, the skills and attributes with which we once built our lives aren't working so well any more.

Let's look at the changes.

We are in the midst of a great struggle for control. On one side is the excess pursuit of self-interest even at the expense of others. On the other are forces that would restrain the excesses of that system through regulation and control, regardless of what rights they impinge or who they step on along the way.

The rest of us are caught in the crossfire, seeminly powerless to do anything about it.

But are we really powerless? Is the status quo truly a runaway train barreling headlong toward the end of the tracks, and taking all of us along with it?
