Approaching the millennium, humanity faces an interlocking array of potential crises. Some affect us as isolated individuals and some as a larger society, while some threaten the whole of humankind.
Overpopulation, environmental pollution, and possible catastrophic climate change seriously threaten our current way of life, and perhaps our very survival. Less devastating, yet still serious, are crises in crime, education, economic inequity, and health care which stress the fabric of our society. Individually, we must each face our personal stresses, insecurities, identity crisis, pains and limitations.
