Imagine that you’re a historian in the year 2500. If you were looking back from the distance of five hundred years, how would you briefly identify the central value(s) of early 21st century western culture? How would you summarize the central ideas that bind our culture together? What key word or words would you use to describe our culture?Weegy:
The early 21 century is marked by the information age. I would use the words global inequality, war-torn and an unbalance of resources to describe our culture.Auto answered|Score 1|tjdcet|Points 221|User:

if i lived in year 2500 and looked back 500 yrs how would I describe the central values of the 21st centuryNote:
The values must be of the people, for the people, and by the people. [ They must embrace common moral decencies such as altruism, integrity, freedom, justice, honesty, truthfulness, responsibility, compassion, and must reflect the normative standards human beings discover and develop through living together. Value development must draw upon reason, science, the arts, and must express concern for justice and fairness and concern for the physical and mental well-being of every human being in an effort to maximize individual freedom without limiting the freedom of others.
Humanistic values espouse cooperation and peaceful living and reject the use of violence to settle problems whether the problems be international, national, local, or familial. Humanistic values recognize cultural or religious diversity and individual creativity while rejecting the validity of declarations made by any group alleging spiritual superiority or political autonomy over others. Humanistic values incorporate many of the moral and ethical values espoused by the world's religions, but seek to move beyond particularistic religious belief systems (which often foster separatism) and beyond political agendas (which tend to be local or too narrow) to focus on the full humanity of the person or persons. Obviously, some humanistic values will receive support from religious and political organizations; others will not. For example, the great religions have preached universal brotherhood but, unfortunately, intolerance of other faiths and a spirit of divisiveness have made the implementation of the brotherhood ideal impossible. Narrow, parochial doctrines of salvation have barred those outside of the faith system from fellowship with those within. Humanistic values for the 21st century cannot be so contained and must not be limited by theologies or by deontological ethics that have, over the centuries, encouraged divisiveness and produced violence. ] Expert answered|NikMik|Points 385|
