Jeremy Rifkin's presentation is very worth watching for its overview of what is happening in USA and Europe, and for its vision of a possible European future. It certainly maps the differences between a Blue-entering-Orange trajectory and an exiting Orange and into Green one. Even more, he maps them both in relation to the different life conditions which those "Dreams" were called forth. Is his view of the possible blend of aspects from US and aspects from EU something which could take us towards the next stage? As a dream, I think it is powerful, but as he says, the reality is lagging behind.
