Albert Einstein claimed he never thought of the future. "It comes soon
enough," he said. Foreign Policy decided to not grant 16 leading thinkers
that luxury. Instead, to mark our 35th anniversary, we asked them to speculate
on the ideas, values, and institutions the world takes for granted that may
disappear in the next 35 years. Their answers range from fields as diverse as
morals and religion to geopolitics and technology. We may be happy to see some
of these "endangered species" make an exit, but others will be mourned.
All of them will leave a mark.
