Welcome to New Dimensions Radio!
Centenarians are the fastest-growing age group in the industrial world, and the founding members of history’s first senior-dominant society. Rather than seeing the aging population as a burden on society, Theodore Roszak views it as a precious spiritual resource. The same generation that invoked massive social change in the 1960s will soon have the leisure time to apply that same “passion that people had for justice and goodness in their youth,” tempered with maturity and wisdom, to “achieve that good society they wanted.” Roszak foresees the day when the social Darwinism that applauds the survival of the fittest will give way to a “very different kind of social ethic that says we value the survival of the gentlest, because they indeed make our life worth living.” (hosted by Michael Toms)
