Have you ever speculated about what society will look like in 100 years? Will future societies be more cohesive or manifest greater conflict? What factors are essential to insure society makes the most appropriate adaptations to prosper? What are the important personal traits necessary for such a new era? Our society sits in a critical period of history. As the last holdouts of socialism and authoritarianism fade from the world, a new era is expected to usher in a future breakout period requiring a significantly new level of society adaptation and functioning. We are left to define how we want the future to be for the next generations. The main theme running through evolutionary theory is the notion of adaption. Culture has a great deal of diversity; and through its interplay, modifications and adaptations arise, creating new forms that are differentiated from the old. The Self Reliant Ethic and the Spirit of Globalism theorizes an enriched global society based on a detailed delineation of social evolution. It then discusses the individual personal traits and resultant value system most adaptable for such a desired future and how these values will contribute to a new type of capitalism, an enhanced democracy and an effective enlightenment strengthening the self-actualization of the individual in such a global society. We hold the keys to continuing our social evolution in the construction of a better world. Through fourteen action steps, O'Connell outlines the process needed for citizen groups, organizations and community leaders to work towards these goals in pursuit of an improved quality of life at the local, national, and global levels. The result is part social analysis, and part handbook for change to help us build the world of tomorrow in which nobody is left behind.
