The dystopian condition of the world today where the plight of humanity reflects the cruel reality at the heart of civilization is a haunting reminder mankind is at the brink of falling into the Abyss. The toxic combination of religious and ethnic hatred, the inability to attain a civil society, and the failure to accept the primacy of science will undoubtedly lead to the ensuing destruction of cultures especially in the Mid-East that stretches back to antiquity. Mankind has since entered the 21st century. The technological marvels of the age have made it possible for humanity to reach unprecedented gains toward that civil society. And yet, to many nations have been thrown back in time where the barbarism and savage retributions continue to ravage whole societies and cultures.
