What's New in the New Decade?


What's New in the New Decade?

The year of 2020 kicks off the beginning of a new decade. While no one can make 100% accurate predictions of what’s in store for mankind, one can discern what’s coming in the new decade. Japan will hold the Summer Olympics while also endeavoring to build a robotic moon base. Many countries will have major elections, including America where Trump’s legacy will be determined. The tallest building in the world will be Jeddah Tower in Saudi Arabia, upon its completion. China will venture to build the longest high-speed rail from Beijing to London. Chips will be implanted in human brains, cars will drive themselves, and the list goes on.

Among so many new happenings in technology, economy and politics, the determining factor of human destiny, for the most part, lies upon America’s election of a new president. The new president will have a profound impact on America’s role on the world stage: reclaiming trust or deepening the disasters we witness around the world.

Will the world find peace? Will the hungry get fed? Will the homeless be taken care of? Will climate change be looked at seriously by the world leaders? All these questions may be at the forefront of what the populace is looking for in this new decade. Certainly, those issues are leading the mainstream media in popularity. What will be done?

As the world braces for unprecedented technological explorations, perhaps wonders of the past decades could steer us clear of wrong or harmful choices. On a personal level, let’s revere the resolutions of bettering ourselves. From a global standpoint, may our lens be open wide enough to look at the whole planet, its health, and the greater wellbeing of the world’s populations. We need to remove/eliminate tyrannical regimes, remove power-mongering world leaders, sideline the need for greater personal wealth by the already incredibly rich, and focus on the real issues, the real long-term problems we must overcome, in order to have healthy planet and population.

Will this be the decade where we finally take control of our destiny or will this be another decade of the “same old same old” -- where the rich get richer, and the planet continues to fall into a state of disrepair?

新时代新鲜事?

2020年是新年代的起始点。尽管没有人能100%准确地预测人类将面临的大事,但新事的发展乃是众所皆知的。日本将举办夏季奥林匹克运动会,同时还将努力建立由机器人操纵的月球基地。许多国家/地区将举行大选,美国也将决定川普总统的历史评价。世界上最高的建筑将是位于阿拉伯的吉达塔。中国将建设从北京到伦敦最长的高铁。电脑芯片将被植入人脑,汽车将自行驾驶。科技新发展日新月异。

在技​​术、经济和政治等众多新事物中,决定人类命运的因素大部分取决于美国于2020年当选的新总统。新总统将对美国在世界舞台上的作用产生深远影响:美国将重新获得世界信任吗?世界各地目睹的灾难将持续恶化吗?

世界会找到和平吗?饥饿的人将有饭吃吗?无家可归的人会得到照顾吗?世界各国领导人将认真解决气候变化所带来的灾难吗?所有这些问题都将是人们在这新的十年中希望得到解决途径或答案的重点所在。显然地,这些议题正引导着主流媒体的报道焦点。人们将做出什么新鲜的解决方案?

随着世界执行空前的技术探索,也许过往年代的成绩和教训可以协助引导人们摆脱错误或有害的选择。在个人层面上,让我们回顾改善自我的方案。从全球的角度来看,愿人们的视角能开敞宽广,以便观察整个地球的福祉,寻求世界人类更美好的生活。我们需要铲除专制政权,唾弃贪劝的世界领导人,防止超级富翁延揽更多个人财富的欲念,并着眼于处理真我们必须克服的真正的长远议题,从而促进地球和人们的健康和福祉。

2020年代将是我们最终能掌控命运的新十年,亦或者,“太阳底下无新鲜事”-- 富者越富、贫者越贫,而这个地球继续陷入失修状态?
