Solution: Rapid societal change is, indeed, a relatively recent phenomena in human history. Humans have been present for at least 500,000 years, but civilization only began roughly 6,000 years ago. The most rapid changes began 400 years ago, and have accelerated in the last lOO years.
The speed with which things changed was largely owing to technological breakthroughs and the arrival of the industrial revolution. As a result, the rate at which these changes are occurring is growing every decade. Every day, humans make strides toward development and new scientific achievements.
