Where Are They Flying Cars?
When I was growing up I remember watching The Jetsons, seeing movies like Metropolis and loving the flying cars. I couldn't wait for the 21st century to get here. I was one of those people who wanted a Jetsons's car.
Well now it's the year 2006 and I want to know "Where are the flying cars? Where is Moon Base Alpha like in Space 1999? Where are all the kewl gadgets we saw when we were growing up?"
Detroit and Japan are under the influence of the large oil companies, gas prices are soaring through the roof with bigger profits for the oil companies. We need to find other means of transportation.
The Jetson society is still a glimmer in someone's eye. I think we are living more in a 1984 society today. With the NSA tapping innocents phones in the name of homeland security and the war on terrorism. Companies and the government putting spyware in our computers.
Where are all the visionaries? Where are the peace makers? Where are the people who would rather live in an utopia society then having our big brother (number 43) running our lives and knowing what we do 24/7?
For me, I don't like it. What is your opinions and feelings about growing up and how we are living and being treated today?
