An Absurd Time in Existence
The developmental challenges in this millennium is presented by a sea change from a modern industrialized urban society of our recent past, and a giant quantum leap of faith towards an increasingly complex and contradictory and often seemingly absurd post-industrial era.
The absurdity in a post-modern era is best characterised as ideas driven waves of social political and economic change, spurred on by science and technology to ever-increasing magnitude and pace, which exerts anew, life’s exigent demands to reflect on the topic of our coexistence as being inseparable to the universal existential dilemma arising from humankind’s existence and survival; and (the very) thought of prospering within the boundary limits of our shared life-sustaining existential knowledge and environment’s natural resources.
Hitherto, the universal dilemma in facing change and to make the hard choices which are politically central to humankind’s fragile and tenuous existence in the face of rapid societal environmental changes, has been overshadowed by singularly didactic individual perspectives forming hard beliefs, and taken as necessary exigent suppositions and exiguous dialectic political convictions in the making of universally common existential choices to sustain a precarious life. And in the making of such hard choices in the face of absurdities arising from an existential threat posed by rapid societal environment existential changes, all to understandably as a human trait in the limitations of his faith to exhibit a historically “false” predilection in taking common exigent existential necessities and ideologically narrow didactic perspectives of “a World as it is” thus forming a singular political imperative for self-preservation based on the relative ignorance of tenuous sparse knowledge to tip the very balance of humankind’s exiguous existence moving from “a World as it ought to be”.
