A Picture Of The Future

In my last post, I worried about pictures of the future that might not come to pass.

One picture of the future I’m glad has not come to pass is that shown in George Orwell‘s 1984 – with its vision of a totalitarian Britain under the heel of Big Brother.

If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face – for ever.

What has come to pass is less terrifying, but perhaps a little depressing…

Pouting Selfie

If you want a picture of the future, imagine a phone camera pointing at a pouting human face – for ever.

The horror!
