Of course he was brutally honest about how he saw FS and the futures of the planet in general, but done so in a way that connects and inspires.
Ramos is correct: Dator‘s comments are a succinct explanation of the value of using futures studies in your contemporary life. I look forward to more of Ramos’s interviews with World Futures Studies Federation members.
