Do you strongly contend that human cultures and societies are

    doing through its proverbial death pangs, exorcising the more negative aspects before evolving to the next stage.  In many aspects, the beginning part of the 2010s are the very best and very worst of times.  Human  cultures and societies are dissolving many of its old paradigms and boundaries in regards to race/ethnic, gender, and age boundaries.  Many people, particularly the millennial generation, are seeing people beyond artificial boundaries, realizing that humans are one.  Old paradigms are being analyzed and questioned.  However, there are those who are fearful of change, holding on to outdated paradigms.  They want the old order to remain.  The 21st century world is constantly evolving. Hopefully, the old paradigms of belief and the way human interact with each other will become outdated.   The 2010s will hopefully become the dawn of a more universalist era beyond race/ethnicity, gender, religion/spirituality, age, class, and other artificial boundaries.  What do you think?

    The calm before the storm?  The winds of change are blowing strongly and for those resisting, these times will seem like having teeth pulled without anaesthetic.

    A time window is currently open for change at a deep level and it will be driven not by the consumer driven corporate sector but by an undercurrent of citizens weary of human stupidity.

    There is an awakening occurring.  Never before has there been the opportunity to be informed, not by mainstream media but by grass roots movements that see this silly game we've been playing.  When you have supposed leaders or wealthy corporate achievers behaving like spoilt children with little intelligence, it facilitates a different perspective by a mass of people who thought they could not do any better than they currently think they are capable.  These high achieving fools are showing masses of people that the bar has been lowered, yes, lowered, not raised. 

    It is the human race, not the planet that will become extinct, people need to understand this.  The planet will shake us off her and regenerate herself.  The human race on the other hand...........................?  Draw your own conclusions, but only after deep conscious reflection on why this discussion is necessary.

      What you have stated is so true.   The early 21st century is a very crucial time for humanity.  Many traditionalists and religionists portend that these are end times and cite apocalyptic works.  Yes, humankind is undergoing a crisis.  However, it is only the beginning of evolvement as old ways of thinking, acting, and belief are slowly becoming antiquated.  Only those who are open to change and growth will survive.  Those who do not will see cultures and societies progress without them.

    Yes.........I'm of the opinion that the apocalypse is an inner journey as much as an outer one.  It makes sense either way.
