Without question, the citizen of today's technologically oriented nation is much better off materially than his nonindustrialized neighbor, who in turn is struggling to become a part of that ``better world.'' However, as an increasing number of our critics remind us, our productive society has its problems, many of which are by-products of the very system that has provided us our wealth and strength. By eliminating time and space, electronics has given modern man the capability to recognize these defects in his way of life. It is equally important that he recognize how truly far he has come¿and, given the wisdom to do so, how much further he can go.
