The purpose of this article is to answer this question with specifics.
First of all, it should be noted that an Age of Authenticism in this world will not translate into human perfection or a global utopia. In the margins, vestiges of pre-structuralism and postmodernism will always persist to perpetuate predictable problems. Just as corruption, greed, and inequality created and tarnished the gilded age following the Civil War and profound racial prejudice persisted during the prosperous years following World War II, the authentic era following Strauss and Howe's "Crisis of 2020" will not be without its problems.

Freedom Focused, we foresee a day when the status quo of the collective populace is markedly different—meaning greatly improved—from where we presently stand. This shift will not begin in society at large; it will begin in the minds, hearts, and spirits of individuals who choose to become self-action leaders by patterning their thoughts, speech, and actions after the ideals of Self-Action Leadership.
The result of this authentic flourishing will bring about monumentally positive and creative impacts on the culture-at-large in the Western World and beyond.

Driven by a shifts in education, the world will begin to rebound both culturally and economically. While poverty will never be diminished entirely, it will begin to give way to a large degree to a worldwide expansion of the middle class. In addition, the upper classes will grow larger and more diverse than ever before in human history. Income inequality will still exist, but it will simultaneously become less salient—and ironically, less demonized.
|Old age will be venerated in the|
Age of Authenticism
Education will be driven by the newly sacrosanct (even if secular) notion that truth with a capital "T" is a real phenomenon to be carefully accessed and abided by if you desire positive and constructive consequences in the long run. Academicians who peddled the rubbish of relativity with regards to truth—who were widely venerated during the postmodern period—will appear as self-absorbed buffoons in kinder corners of the Age of Authenticism, and as devilish pariahs to be forever castigated among the authentic balance of society.

Business will thrive as never before because executives will be less corrupt and more philanthropic. Moreover, these same officers will hire and train a workforce and leadership team that is impressive not only in intellect, but in integrity.
Government & Politics will, for a period of time, be greatly transformed. The questions of competence and/or character that plagued the Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama administrations will be replaced by the leadership and results of the Roosevelt (Theodore & Franklin), Kennedy, and Reagan years. Congress will manage to restore its approval rating to an unimagined 50% or better. The Supreme Court will legislate less and judge more.
Personal finance will be transformed. Individual debt will be minimized to an extent that many in the previous generation believed possible. Most people will free themselves from debt and many will have a growing savings. Frugality and balance will replace fiscal profligacy and excess at individual, familial, community, corporate, state, and national levels.
Religion will proliferate as it has rarely done in American History. Many different dominations will benefit from an influx of church goers, and most will unite in a sincere embrace of faith-based collectivity aimed at the greater good of the nation and world—aside from any specific doctrinal differences.

the root of society in the Age of Authenticism

|As goes America, so goes the world|
It will be, in short, an age for the ages — the greatest age the world has ever seen.
Unfortunately, the Age of Authenticism will not last forever. As the cycles of history continue their march into the future, dire times will circle round once again in decades beyond the 2040s. I do not presume to predict past the point of progress and authenticity described in this article beyond my personal conviction that at some unknown point in the future, He who created this world in the first place, and He whom I believe has atoned it from an otherwise inevitable ruin, will, with the scepter of righteousness and the crown of eternal glory and godhood, eventually return again in an unprecedented display of both majesty and ubiquity—to take His rightful place on the Earth as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. I do not presume to know a period or date when such a glorious event will occur, nor do I believe any man save God Himself has any specific knowledge of such things. Nevertheless, I am a man firmly rooted in the faith and cause of the Christians (generally speaking). As such, I firmly believe that it will occur. As for what will occur from this point in time on until the end of the world, I can only point you to the prophecies of the Holy Prophets in the Old and New Testaments and other Sacred Writ.
Whether you are a believer or not, and whether you are a Christian or not, I invite men and women everywhere to invest the study, effort, and time required to become the principle-centered self-action leaders who will both lead and prosper during this period of authenticity. You can begin by buying my new book — a secular TEXTBOOK FOR LIVING —which I wrote in an effort to unite all liberty loving, freedom seeking, and law abiding citizens who are determined to do their part to make the world a better place by virtue of their presence therein.
God Bless the United States of America—a blessed land of promise—now, and always.

SELF-ACTION LEADERSHIP is the key catalyst for initiating transformational leadership that lasts in any organization. The truth of the matter really is that simple; and the transformation of organizations through the holistic development of individuals really is that difficult—yet altogether possible for anyone willing to invest the time, effort, and sacrifice required to achieve authentic, transformational results.
Unlike any training program that has ever preceded it, Self-Action Leadership provides a single vehicle wherewith individual self-leaders can discover—and then act—upon the great truth that HOLISTIC personal development and growth spanning the mental, moral, spiritual, physical, emotional, and social elements of our individual natures is within the grasp of each one of us.
