Yes, Material & Intellectual Progress. What About Political & Economic Progress?

Trends and facts cited make your case. What is omitted is equally important.

  • Medieval, heavily gamed political systems
  • Rising economic inequality and unresponsive political or economic systems
  • Growing surveillance state and contraction of civil liberties
  • Increasingly inexpensive, portable, stealthy WMD
