Arresting, but...

It takes some time - often a generation or two, or even hundreds of years - for ideas to be really appreciated and built on. The great ideas of the last fifty years will be better understood in 2105 than in 2005. But the two mentioned (the pill and the micro-processor), have had extremely powerful effects already. Like most powerful ideas, they have opponents as well as supporters, quite apart from those who simply use their outcomes. Another, already obvious, but still contested, is the fact that all human beings are talented, in in several ways. That too will be better appreciated in 2105.

People do have big ideas still, but who wants to know?
