...of these defining times

Forty-years since the opening up of China to western cooperation and partnership, humanity has advanced at leaps and bounds. 

Not solely in China, but transcending the entire globe, millions of people have been lifted out of poverty. Technology and all of its systems from cell phones to the Internet, are today, a norm in every community. Many more people are living longer, earning more and enjoying a better standard of living than at four-decades-ago. 

Yet, the reality of our times - these defining times of the latter-days of 2018, has become mired in uncertainty.

The hope of continued human development is subjected to the impacts of Climate Change and the illogical indifference of some leaders to failing to adopt the science of a stark reality. An isolating administration in Washington, DC, also casts doubts upon the robustness of the future; so does a Donald Trump initiated trade war with China, conflicts in Yemen, Syria and Afghanistan, the spread of divisionist ideology, political agitations, inequality and the re-emergence of far right wing groups.

These present times will define the future of the human species. And as 2019 approaches, many aspects of global future affairs have already been hinted or written. What will 2019 bring? Beginning tomorrow, I will publish here on My Blog, my annual view of the coming year:
