The theme for today is The Future of Civilization.
For thinking people, this means that those cultures that relate collaboratively, enterprise freely, and govern participatively will enjoy peace, prosperity and participation.
In this context, our research in Freedom-cast 6 presents the images of “The Past, The Present and The Future of Civilization:”
- The “Past” is found in the clustered low scores on The Freedom Functions of “The Detractors” who live in a version of “The Pre-20th Century Civilization:”
- Dependent Cultural Relating,
- Controlling Economic Enterprise,

- The “Transition from The Past to The Present” is discovered in the “Middling scores” of “The Observers” who live in a version of “The Early 20th Century Civilization:”
- Competitive Cultural Relating,
- Command Economics,
- Authoritarian Governance.
- The “Present” is represented in the mixed scores of “The Participants” who have only begun to embrace Freedom in a version of “The Mid-20th Century Civilization:”
- Independent Cultural Relating;

- The “Transition to The Future” is found in the high scores of “The Contributors” who are committed to becoming Free and Prosperous in a version of “The Late 20th Century Civilization:”
