The turbulence, bloody conflicts, and widespread dissatisfaction the world over with vague moralization and sabotage of egalitarian values are ominous signs to ignore. Leisurely pursuit of economics of profit, extravagant jamborees vulgarizing cultural tastes, the practice of adversarial politics of spoils, and the sordid amalgam of the secular with the ecclesiastical cannot continue for long. The plaintive notes of humanity are inked in the Futuresto to generate interest and debate on the urgency of the changes needed. And at the same time, explore the protean capacity of democracy to throw up new guidelines for management of the temporal affairs of humankind through concerted efforts at the national and international levels so that we all are able to live and prosper together, balancing human aspirations with the limitations of nature.
