Civil Rights: Prediction and Caution
Advances by society in the area of civil rights brings slow changes in many individual minds, leaving dry tinder for new fires of prejudice. However these changes for the better will finally affect a change in this area as new technologies and education bring changes to how we deal with the learned helplessness that keeps those cinders of hate still glowing. Given enough time we will surely “overcome”. What threatens further advancement may seem quite unrelated: the environmental threats such as global climate change, and the diminishing resource of fresh water, and an exponentially growing population.
