Day 54: 28 – “Suppose time stops for 28 years and when you wake up, it’s already after 28 years. What do you think the world will be like?”
2049! That seems like a long time away, but it is only 28 years away. I highly doubt I will still be alive. I don’t know anyone in my family who lived to be very old.
In 2049, the world is the same, yet it is different. Cars are still on the ground. There will not be flying cars. If people cannot drive on the roads safely, do you really want them flying over your house? I never understood the Jetsons. Did everybody go to flight school?
And speaking of the Jetsons, we will not have a robot maid name Rosie. Why would you pay for an expensive robot, when you can pay a Mexican to come clean your house?
Maybe that will be different. Maybe people will not make bad jokes about hiring Mexicans to clean their house. I imagine in the future cashless society it will not be easy for the rich to hire slaves to clean for them for low wages. Slaves. Yes, I think hiring someone for less than they deserve is basically slavery. Modern day slavery.
I think television and films will be completely boring. The social justice warriors as known as Hollywood are killing entertainment. Everything that was fun is becoming too political. I literally do not watch television to be taught something by high school dropouts. I watch television to escape the horrible world and the insanity in my head. I need some escapism to survive each day. The more I see on television the more I want to find other ways to alleviate my pains. Drugs are looking better at the moment.
Drugs will be different. I believe that marijuana will be legal in all 51 states. There will be a lot of things legalised that might not be good for society overall, but the moral majority will be silenced. They will be the ones who will be stopped from stifling people from doing what makes them feel good. They will be the ostracized ones.
All this actually depends on the people saving the Earth from burning up. Otherwise, there will not be any people here to hate each other. Even if they could postpone the world from burning up, it would only be for a short time. It will burn up one day.
I think the world will continue to suck. There isn’t an utopia on Earth. People will never be kind to each other. People will turn more and more against their neighbour. All the problems today will continue. There will never be peace on this Earth. It is impossible.
