Welcome to the Future – Living in 3 Time Zones
The latest video blog post from futurist Richard Neville: From Socrates to insanity, a descent into a world where the threats keep multiplying despite the best intentions of visionary activists.
From the malignancy of Rupert Murdoch to the murderous (under-reported) air strikes on civilians in Iraq, Afghanistan, even villagers in Pakistan (again!), we seem to be hurtling hopelessly to the brink. Yet the closer the cliff, the more we succumb to distraction, delusion, titillation and denial. You can’t start wars and stop emissions at the same time – it’s a contradiction. Just like a President saying that we don’t torture, and that we do torture… and hoping no-one notices. Is the end game looming, or are we at the beginning of a new beginning?
