This chapter argues that even if the historical preconditions for the success of the ILC in the 20th century have not disappeared but only changed somewhat, the question arises whether this is a sufficient basis for being confident that the ILC can make a difference in the future. Of course, the answer to this question depends on how we anticipate the world will look like and develop in the foreseeable future, and what the world will then require. The history of the ILC seems to demonstrate that its success, or lack of success, depends not only on the intrinsic quality of its work, but also on the more or less favourable political context of the times. And, so far, this context seems to have changed about every decade.
