The Shafter Cow.
Ellena, William J.
The future presents us with seemingly insurmountable tasks. Most experts agree that we have only a very short time to adopt policies that will keep technology from destroying our planet. The increasingly rapid rate of change creates a milieu based primarily on temporary relationships and increases the rate at which the individual is called on to make adaptive decisions. This means that the individual is less and less able to deal with reality through preprogrammed decisions, and is forced into more creative decisionmaking. If we do not learn to understand and guide the great forces of change at work in our world today, we may find ourselves, like the Shafter cow, swallowed up by vast upheavals in our way of life.
