Standing on the threshold of the twenty-first century when survey our world, we are shocked to see what man have made of man. We are terrified for self-expression and communal living but the very survival of the species.
Hence, billions of men all over the world are today locked in a battle for survival. One estimate-shows that some forty thousand people die every day from starvation- alone.

Shanty Towns

No city in the world is without its slums and shanty towns. The future shows no promise of improving because the emphasis is not on the production of food stuff but on a raw material. Also, adding fuel to the fire is the galloping the rate of population growth.
So, the increase in the life expectancy brought about. The most to suffer in this respect will be the already crowded countries of the Third World.

According to United Nations forecast the population of thousands will be around 7,030 million in the year 2000. So, an increase of 2006 million within the next eighteen years. This will shrink the space, and energy, food, and water resources.

What a future can the world holds for the man? In a fact, the present rate of population growth is the greatest single obstacle to the social and economic advancement. It is in a fact, global rather than a regional problem.
Also, the other factor which has darkened the prospects of a man is the belief in the technology.

The today, be finds himself out of tune with a technological society. Also, A machine culture which is, erasing his identity. Also, it is depriving him of the best that is in him. The crushing force of this evil is most clearly and dramatically in his work’ situation.

No matter what the advantages, it takes a heavy toll of the human personality. What becomes of a man if the process of the production, “takes away from work. Also, It is an insult to human nature and inevitably produces boredom, mental laziness and escapism.

Rules of modern industries

The moral and cultural scene is no brighter and fills us with despair. The rulers of modern industrial-the curia-technocratic societies- are quite clear about their moral aims. So, moral considerations are not important. On the contrary they are a hurdle on the way of industrial progress.

Man’s insatiable greed, his moral decline, and his belief in a machine are the issues. The culture has given the rise to yet another problem of grave magnitude. Man has suddenly realized that he is burning the candle at both ends and depleting the resources of the earth.

If he continues at his present rate, the forest wealth and fossil fuel may come to an end sooner. He is polluting the world with pesticides and herbicides. Also, with wastes and smoke and spreading toxic substances by the wind and water.

Man’s lust for the power and the profit is now compounding with an uncontrolled increase in the human population. At this rate how long will the treasures of the earth last? So, the answer does not bode well for the future of the man. International relations, too, provide no source, not’ the consolation.

There are some areas of an inter-state conflict. So, there a flare up can flares into World War. The Arab-Israeli tensions, and Iran-Iraq War have writhed them seeds. So, this can lead to a direct confrontation between Moscow and Washington. Every nation desires peace but is preparing feverishly for a war.

Their fantastic military expenditures are enough to convince one of the directions in which the states of the world are moving. Also, the military technology has taken on the shape of a doomsday machine.

The nuclear warheads, the intercontinental ballistic missiles (an ICBM) and the multiple independently-targeted re-entry vehicles. So, the man wipe himself off the face of the earth.

Honesty

When we are fair-in our dealings, true to our word, truthful in our expression we are honest. If the pillars on which the structure of human societies must astir for without its mutual trust is impossible.
When we think rightly, follow moral commands, obey the voice of the conscience, arrive at a correct enteritis and reflect.
We are honest in our thought. If a modern civilization finds itself on the brink of a precipice, the causes are net far to seek. We refuse to reveal or acknowledge our true intentions.
