   "Future Shock"

Should we live in fear of Alvin Toffler’s predictions,
or can we equip ourselves for the unknown?
Some of us seem to thrive on change and crest its waves joyfully. 
Others resist it or seek flight from it. It is about our capacity to adapt.
It is about the future and the shock that its arrival brings.
Western society for the past 300 years has been caught up in a fire storm of change.
Does general semantics offer tools to assist us in coping with all this? 
Presented by Robert James.
