Episode One (of 7), Breaking With The Past - Conclusion ... "The Twentieth Century has been marked by unprecedented upheaval in every area of life - The lesson of the 18th to the early 20th century is this.  When a culture abandons its religious traditions, as matter of survival, it should find something strong enough to replace these traditions, to give people a sense of meaning and purpose.  What we see is that each successive revolution against tradition has not led to some new moral order, but instead to more revolution and dehumanization.  The Enlightenment's faith in reason led only to the Romantic movement's rejection of reason in favor of a worship of nature and of primitive man.  This in turn was replaced by stark realism and finally pessimism.  Just as the ideas of the Enlightenment spawned the French Revolution, so the failure of the Romantic Movement has led to the dehumanized and ruthless society of the 20th century."

 

Episode Two, Where Are We Going? ... "As we look at the fragmentation of modern society, we realize that this chaos is the result of a change in ideas about the basis of life.  As our culture has continued to abandon the traditional religious principles that formed the basis for Western society, we have been influenced by such people as Charles Darwin, Karl Marx and others.  One result is a society growing consistently more dehumanized and despairing."
