It's now...it will always be now...information, education and technology will always bring us to a pinnacle, ergo, now.
The issue is what do we do with the information we have now? Do we continue with racist, sexist, misogynistic ideas? Or, do we grow into more mature, evolved human beings?
Sadly, it would seem the "information age" has created less communication of value...as opposed to more enlightened human beings, however, this too could change, but the answer to your question will always be "now." Sorry, too adamant? :)
