Isn't it interesting that in the past humanity has looked at the future with such high hope? They thought that by now we would have flying cars and teleportation and so much more amazing technology. While we have advanced immensely in creativity, this generation seems to view the future as much more dismal. Think of the movies, books and television shows that depict apocalypses and dystopian worlds. This is what we see the future holds. We are no longer as hopeful, envisioning a shining world with the latest advancements in technology, we are seeing a world destroyed by ourselves.
And maybe that's not far fetched. Maybe we really are headed that way. Maybe we'll advance so far in technology that we will overthrow our own species by creating something we can't control or by a power-thirsty ruler taking over. All I can say is that I hope I'm not chosen at the reaping or my brain eaten by zombies.
