Summary

Guidelines are offered in this second information memorandum for an in progress study on how projections for the future might affect the quality of life in the United States. Examining other future oriented studies, articles, and research documents, six projections are reviewed which indicate that the U. S. will be crowded, urbanized, mobile, technological, brain-intensive, and a medico-interventionist society, and which suggest many questions for considering the quality of life. Emphasis in the guidelines is upon the potential for education and for wise public policy to advance order and to preserve individual liberties by lowering the need for extensive regulatory and allocative policy. Citizens need to learn to take more responsibility for their own behavior and compromise in the many kinds of interactions with others. Because there is much to learn from other nations which appear to yield a high degree of security and well-being for their people, the study and comparative analysis of the three small nations of Denmark, Switzerland, and Yugoslavia offers ideas for developing guidelines for U. S. education and public policy. It is expected that this study will point toward the need for additional studies and for creative ways to draw upon experiences and policies in other nations to improve education and public policy in the United States.
