We are privileged to live in the most revolutionary era in human history. Never has change penetrated so deeply and occurred so rapidly. Moreover, in terms of depth and speed, the United States is currently the world’s most revolutionary society. Each American, of whatever status, has had to cope with constant changes affecting beliefs, relationships, and one’s entire way of life. Yet the revolution is now global, with every nation and people affected. China is an example. While Shanghai demonstrates change in its most extensive forms, even in the remote parts of Yunnan or Tibet, transformation is underway.
