This may well happen (I certainly hope so and am working towards it),
but the question is whether or not it will occur by means of the
mechanisms of Darwinian evolution. That is, by the survival and
perpetuation of specific genotypes which are more “fit” to so survive
and procreate than other genotypes which are not, and therefore become
extinct. This is the big question, for which I personally agree with
most others here that the answer is negative. Traditional Darwinian
evolution is very close to termination, at least relative to the human
species. IMO, it only continues relative to those actions which
eliminate from the gene pool, those younger people who do things which
cause their deaths before procreation age. I will leave it to others to
think about what such actions are in the current society.

This is certainly a grand and optimistic desire and view (and one that I
have also), but the major question is what will be the mechanism of such
harmonious interaction? Except for my own description of this mechanism
(founded at: http://ift.tt/1jTcMfH) I
have little agreement with those mechanisms currently being proposed and
no agreement at all with the current mechanisms of social order, which I
see as totally non-harmonious.
