In this chapter, a whole new realm comes into view as people have become more conscious and more aware of their own interpretative and constructive activities. There has been a slow shift in the way we think from being dogmatic to being critical where the interpretation of reality has now became more different and difficult. Current development theory will be replaced, this chapter proposes, by something different where we can still choose our own values and fight for them. However, there are people who still hope for the old order to be restored again because for them there is no intermediate position, in other words, the end of dogmatism is the beginning of unbelieving.
