Summary

The paper discusses a need for perceiving and discussing the future of the world not in the traditional way of projecting future trends from present events but, rather, from the point of view of creating a new future by discussing how things "ought to be." It is suggested that new behavioral goals of tomorrow which are not anthropocentrically based be established. The author refutes Horowitz's arguments of bringing Third World nations up to the same production and consumption levels as the nations of the First and Second Worlds and the position of others who offer that technology and education constitute a solution, since the crucial problem is survival. To meet this problem it is suggested that a design for cultural survival such as conceived by Skinner be created requiring design, investment, and a self discipline implying "the development of a technology of behavior which prescribes social contingencies that will create behaviors in line with the main cultural values." Neither an individual nor a nation has unlimited rights when survival of the world is at stake. Five large scale objectives, listed by The UNESCO Courier are given which should be implemented because of the pressing need for ecological sanity and survival. (Several pages may be light.) (SJM)
