A new era

The world changed about a month ago and we are entering a new era.

If 1962 to 1980 was about liberation exploration and 1980 - 2008 was about consumption what is the zeitgeist of the new era?

I would say it is all about getting to grips with difficult problems, restraint and constriction. Surveillance cameras, tougher border controls, heavier taxes, less credit, harder economic times.

And where is the joy in that? Well joy and happiness will be more important than ever - because they will be in shorter supply. How about staying at home with family and friends?
