In Political status and unquestioned answers, Dr. Kenneth Gofigan Kuper of Guam references one of Dr. Lum's foresight lessons when he discusses the different possible futures for Guam's political status and relationship with the US.
... we cannot “feign to ‘know’ the future, but rather explore how and why the future may be different than the present in the context of statehood, free association, or independence for Guam. As noted by futurist Richard A. K. Lum, ‘foresight is insight into how the future could be different from today; it is not about the ability to see the future before it happens.’” ... I seek to unravel the labyrinth of Guam’s political status to understand what futures may be on the horizon.
