Divining The Future

Something feels out of place, but I just can't put my finger on it. I've sat and thought until my thinker hurts, but I can't get a bead on the next big trend. Asimov used to say that it was easy to see the future, but I don't share his visual optimism.
                                  

Whatever happens, I hope it's interesting.

  1. The future isn't too hard for me to see. It looks like "1984", "Minority Report", "The Running Man", or maybe even "Soylent Green". Life immitates art? Or maybe some art warns us about life...

  2. Hi Mayberry,

    I still think of you as a glass-is-half-full kinda guy. Remember Commander Taggert(Tim Allen) from Galaxy Quest: "Never surrender. Never give up."

    Of one thing I'm certain. Our liberation will not come from hope, elections, or trying to talk the sheeple into revolution. We're going to have to take the bull by the tentacles and save ourselves.

  3. Dave, if I'm a "glass-half-full guy", I'd hate to see a pessimist! Ha ha! Yeah, it's become pretty apparent that we're on our own...

  4. Underground,

    History repeats itself. Or as Mark Twain is alleged to have said, "History doesn't repeat itself, but it does rhyme."

    So, we know that A) the State will pick a minority group, B) begin to exterminate them, and C) crush anyone who doesn't recognize that this extermination process is clearly for the common good.

    That's what's coming.

  5. Hi Brass,

    Good to hear from you. And yes, minority-hating seems to be a human thing that even the land-of-the-free embraces.
