Everyone talks about Idiocracy like it's a dead ringer for what the future will look like. Yah, we get it. People is be dumb! Not that hard to
But I've been thinking about what we're really in for long term. We're in the wake of a speeding bandwagon (vaccine passport and virus panic) where
the uninitiated will become vilified and hunted down like witches. Get ready to turn your neighbors in for coughing.
Automaton replacement of the average Joe is right on the doorstep too. Have you noticed fast food joints advertising that new 15 USD/ hour hire-on
lately? Sure you can make a taco for 15 dollars an hour but you'll be the only human on site. Hope you get chummy with Burgertron and Tacomatic really
If China doesn't implement a social credit thought police system in the West, perhaps the path to transhumanism will snuff out the human soul
regardless. Will you be among the first to get an Elon chip implant?
What happens in Idiocracy's future?
I think Zager and Evans with lyrics for the song, In The Year 2525, have hit upon some haunting truths long before Mike Judge ever did.
Let's examine a few snippets:
If man is still alive
If woman can survive
Lul! Only 2 genders? How quaint!
Ain't gonna need to tell the truth, tell no lies
Everything you think, do and say
Is in the pill you took today
While mainstream media isn't administering pills just yet, they are incessantly streaming a form of group think among their followers that is even
more potent. No costly substance(s) required! And remember folks, Joe Biden is the most popular and voted-for US president in history.
Ain't gonna need your teeth, won't need your eyes
You won't find a thing to chew
Nobody's gonna look at you
Some people without brains do an awful lot of talking! Or maybe that's Tik-Toking. We are knee deep in the look at me era of social media
fueled by a kind of narcissism. People are doing things on public cam that a generation or two ago would be unthinkable. It's done just for the
illusory adoration and validation. Morality be damned! That's boring and old-fashioned!
Your arms are hanging limp at your sides
Your legs got nothing to do
Some machine is doing that for you
Again, automation is coming. Siri and Alexa listen and tell us everything. We are slowly becoming parts in the play, instead of the directors we once
were as a species. Smash that like button though. Be sure to film the next public beating or lynching.
Ain't gonna need no husband, won't need no wife
You'll pick your son, pick your daughter too
From the bottom of a long glass tube
The death of the nuclear family unit is already the norm. Divorce rates soar, and role models are absent. Don't judge yo! No one needs 2 functional
parents anyway. On the flip side of that coin, watch the gap between the haves and have-nots expand as the rich and elite genetically cherry-pick
their children, for a nominal fee of course.
I'm just sayin'...it's a lot more bleak than Idiocracy. That's just a rest stop along the journey. Can we even conceive where we'll be in 500
What are your visions or predictions for the long future?
Having said all that, don't worry, don't worry. I'm not gonna do what everyone thinks I'm gonna do and FLIP OUT!
