I don't think the New Age, a time of high tech and peace, is a change from destination, but is the fulfilment of destination. Cambodia is now taking past war criminals to court. Many pf them are dying before the trails begin, and this is sad because there will be no examination of the details once people die. However, when in history have we treated the extermination of people as a crime, and assumed we could put these people on trail? This came with the WWII extermination of Jews, and is spreading to Bosnia, Africa and Cambodia. I think only the US is dragging its feet on this phenomenia of International Law.
We are jumping up and down about democracy with International agreement that it is a good idea! My gosh, at the beginning of the US democracy only 200 years ago, less than 4 life spans, the rest of the world thought a handful of radicals were leading us down the path of destruction. I think Britian stopped warring with us, because they assumed our democracy would soon callapse, and they could walk back in and clean up the mess. Now people around the world talk about democracy as a legitimate choice.
Racism and sexism were assumed natural and based in the laws of nature. Now both are assumed wrong. There is resistance to this change around the world, but I think it is distained that we become as one, respecting individual differences while at the same time assuming our individual rights and dignity.
I don't think I am opposing distiny, but am aware of it. All of humanity is like a teenage learning how to join society.
