How long will it take for our people on a gobal basis to get out of the situation we presently find ourselves in? One could say that since it took us 400 hundred years to get in this situation that it may take us 400 to get out. As rational as that sounds, it just isn't true. It actually took us about 3,500 years to get into this situation...so will it take that amount of time on a global basis for the pendelum to swing back to where it was? I thought this worthy of thought as I began to analyze the rate of change, of growth, of time and of history concerning our plight. Anyone have any feedback on this? Remember, we are not just speaking of our people in America or the western world, but on a global basis.
