How do we create a future other than a "Terminator" one? A LEAD Global Briefing from Futurist Chet W. Sisk
We are living in a time where the stuff of science fiction is now becoming the stuff of science fact. We are living at a time of the Utopian/Dystopian Paradox. Both possibilities exist at the same time, begging for us to make a decision on them. The decision that's pushed in pop culture is a dystopian one, or a "Terminator" world. According to the National Intelligence Council (CIA, FBI, TSA, etc) whatever we decide over the next few years will probably decide the next 100. How can we help forward the Utopian future? There is plenty of discussion in the field on this.

Here is an interesting article from a source sent to me that suggests we simply haven't fully developed the Utopian idea because we haven't fully believed it as a possibility. . http://www.onecommunityglobal.org/creating-utopia/
I'm one to believe that once you combine a foundation belief system like Ubuntu (we are all connected) with Quantum Physics, (everything is connected), you have more resources, more participation, more ideas and more of everything to create Utopia than you can under individualism. Watch this video....
And there is the mountainous body of work that says the current leadership model needs to be transformed immediately if there will be any hope of a Utopian future. Diversity in leadership that includes everyone is the key to being able to see what one cultural group may be blind to.....https://www.forbes.com/sites/stevedenning/2012/01/16/why-is-diversity-vital-for-innovation/#3255781a13e2
We have a fairly small window to intend our future and that of our children.
