Abstract:

The report surveys significant changes taking place in modern society, or predicted to take place in future society, under eleven major categories Philosophical, international, technological, bio-medical, cultural and social, organizational, national orientations, domestic institutions, the continuing military context, Vietnam and other impacts, and old and new directions. Sixty sub-categories are used to organize the data cited from almost 1800 sources. In selecting data, criteria of importance and probability were used, and particularly the criterion of relevance to the values of the Navy and to Navy and Marine Corps systems of non-tactical organization and of administration of personnel. Over 400 potential impacts are explicitly identified, and many other are implicit in the data and the discussions the nature of the impacts ranges comprehensively from abstract and philosophical to concrete, specific, and technical.
