The world soon to be dominated by such people (their world is already
rapidly consolidating itself around us) will be awkward and ham-fisted;
it will respond slowly and in all likelihood badly to the complicated
problems that will impose their contingency on it. Petulance will
characterize it universally: people who find it hard to think straight
or to sort out complexities will balk at doing so and become adept at
finding reasons for ignoring urgent social, moral, and political
challenges. They will be even more amenable than many people already
are to pandering, “magical” solutions to emergencies offered by cynical
politicians who are interested solely in re-election.
