Toffler On The Promise Of Technology

October 11, 2012

Excerpted from Future Shock, by Alvin Toffler:

The super-industrial revolution can erase hunger, disease, ignorance, and brutality.  Moreover, despite the pessimistic prophecies of the straight-line thinkers, super-industrialism will not restrict man, will not crush him into bleak and painful uniformity.  In contrast, it will radiate new opportunities for personal growth, adventure, and delight.  It will be vividly colorful and amazingly open to individuality.  The problem is not whether man can survive regimentation and standardization.  The problem, as we shall see, is whether he can survive freedom.
