“Bob Dylan, Change, and” “Our World”
Come gather ‘round people
Wherever you roam
And admit that the waters
Around you have grown
And accept it that soon
You’ll be drenched to the bone.
If your time to you
Is worth savin’
Then you better start swimmin’
Or you’ll sink like a stone
For the times they are a-changin’.
Bob Dylan’s timeless anthem on change continues to strike a chord across generations and time periods. Even if its opening lines now seem to be more than just metaphorical in this age of climate change and related events.
As we move full throttle into 2020, we thought we would use this issue of Viewpoint to highlight what’s changing around us and to what degree. What kind of pressure is the institution of marriage now facing? How effective are the forces working to slow down our modern lives? How has the news media failed to take note of a key societal shift? What current models of measuring business success will see a reset in the near future?
We hope you enjoy reading these very engaging and insightful points of view.
