Dr. Kaku, Carl Sagan, and the majority of the scientific community recognises the need for society (esp. in the United States) to wake up to the threats that human activity, through pollution and nuclear energy, pose to the future of humanity and the planet. Not to mention future threats from bioterrorism, cybercrime and the like. Kaku always pushes a true democracy which includes all the world, not just one composed of the privilaged few who are born in Industrialised nations, as being the best solution to the world's problems. (or that is how I interpret him) I am in my early 20s. Kaku sometimes suggests that mine is the most important generation that has ever walked the face of the planet because it is mine which will have to deal with these threats that face humanity. I would like to very generally ask people what sort of society they would like the future to be, and what they think the best way of achieving that future is given the present state of the world.
