nolo, just when you start to sound reasonable, you slip into the JimBobBubba role.
WHO SAYS this is the "age of __________"?? Please tell me. Please explain the basis of the observation, the person who observed it, and his/her qualifications.
Just because you read something somewhere doesn't mean it's true. Naisbitt and his fellow "futurists" have been predicting "business certainties" and social events for a number of years, and many soothsayers came before them. None has been right, none has been correct.
Frankly, I believe that I have a better handle on social changes and direction than any of your information sources. How do I know that? Quite simply, it's the frequency with which you consult and reference book learning.
This is not a slur on your intelligence; rather, it's my observation about how you use (or do not) whatever intelligence you have.
You can call me a dinosaur if you wish, and pretend that you have your finger on the pulse. If that makes you feel superior or comfortable, I guess that's all that matters. To hell with truth. To hell with reality.
