When George H.W. Bush as president back in the 80’s he spoke of a world of laws instead of the law of the jungle which has always been the norm for the survival of each individual in society. The new world he spoke of called, for one thing, most of all. Order. This was the beginning of the computer age for the general public. Society has become addicted to the cell phone to the point that one cannot even remember a time when they did not exist. Some state governments now give away free phones to anyone who would not even be aware of GPS technology related to those phones. Big brother never stops watching.While those in the developed countries reap the benefits of technology the rest of the world continues on a downward spiral that cannot be ignored.
The war in Syria started the migrations of millions of displaced people from different countries in the middle east to the continent of Africa. The surge of humanity leaving those places are now risking their lives for the chance to make it to Europe for a better life that they left behind. In the major cities of the U.S. homelessness is on the rise due to income inequality and steadily rising housing costs. The times we now live in have been waiting for us. It is up to this generation to come up with a solution to the problems that plague the modern world. Societies of the past aways promised one thing to its citizens: order and then prosperity. The wealth is there but where is the will of the people. That is a question still waiting to be addressed by modern society. A new world of order awaits us all whether we like it or not.
