Issues in the new year

Posted on 31 December, 2010


Don Sweeting has composed a list of cultural trends facing us in 2011. Tidbits include:

  • “the West is still in a heightened phase of anti-authoritarianism”
  • “. . . for the first time a Chinese city (Shanghai) ranked number 1 in the world’s most recognized standardized test for 15 year old students (the 65 country Pisa Test run by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development).”
  • “Christianophobia in Europe”
  • “postmodern insistence on tolerance is winning over the Christian church.”
