Toffler believed that the existing institutions, politics, system are all anachronistic and are therefore incapable for the needs of the people. This simple yet rich idea explains why we are facing structural problems like unemployment, increasingly unbalanced distribution of the wealth, gender & immigrant issues, poverty, etc.
Solutions to these crucial & chronic problems cannot be as simple as economic tricks like tax or interest increases/decreases, etc. Today's society needs to welcome/appreciate the variety within and should try capitalize on this variety. This involves a rich-democracy that welcomes and promotes all types of people with differing needs, a revised education system and a totally different concept of working.
John Naisbitt's book by the way.
Get this eye-opening book. It will change the way you look at the world and at your life. Perhaps the best chapter is:
"Beyond Capitalism and Socialism." His ideas about sex roles and conflict are also very interesting.
Glad I took time to look at this very important and thought-provoking book.
