The main purpose of The Future Now project was to express a vision of the public platform for the growing ecosystem of the so-called "cultural creatives". It was expressed in a form of a business proposal because we hoped it is possible to start an enterprise on this matter. The time has shown that it is too early to start an enterprise on such matters.

/Andrei, March 17, 2014:/ Here I'd like to share my own opinion.

Most of the cultural creatives seriously overestimate their abilities to participate in cultural and societal development, other words to do business of global societal significance. They critically lack for adequate education, especially in area of sociology, including economy, psychology, etc. Also many are liable to such psychical phenomena as egocentrism, obsession,  conceit, and internal dishonesty.

It means there are two very important sides of self-development as a cultural creative:

  1. sociological education (to understand what happens around in society)
  2. psychical or spiritual development (to understand own egocentrism, various obsessions, overcome conceit and become absolutely honest with inner self)



Also I want to draw your attention on the next educational material. It is a work-in-progress translation of a book "Essentials of useful Sociology". The first introductory chapter has been translated from Russian to English. Translators will be very thankful for any feedback! https://db.tt/lGPl8AKB
