Any sober dabble in futurism calls for caution and some weaseling regarding the net results to be had in yon future.

Certainly science and education have recently created new and vast potentials for humans to experience a future of unprecedented health and prosperity for people the world around, but prospects for economic collapse, government failure, destructive social policy, sinking employment and wobbling international relations still seem to mostly follow in the footprints of past generations that have been brought low by war, disease, pestilence and economic collapse caused by inattention, corruption and mendacity in government and private centers of power.

Lots of possibilities await for either and both failure and success in steering our future for a safe and steady course.

My coin vanished somehow in mid-air, while enroute to divining the fateful choice.
