Contents Emerging trends of the information society -- Future politics of culture and identity. No one country or region will be likely to monopolize global "influence" in the 21st century, including us -- The prospects for master narratives to unify international action may be more limited -- ICT-inundated society will drastically change the way humans interact, in particular regarding issues of privacy, trust, and transparency -- Conclusion : potential implications for security and for defense
Summary While it is impossible to predict the values and beliefs of future generations, a modest forecast is made by tracing global trends in the use of language and media, as well as in the use of information and communication technologies. The potential implications of these culture and identity trends for the strength of the U.S. "signal" in the global info-communication sphere are analyzed. The author suggests that the information that will dominate the 21st century, particularly the beliefs and values of foreign societies, may increasingly and more directly impact our own national security, making it ever more critical for policymakers to understand issues of cultural change and identity formation from a strategic perspective
