DAY 29: READY PLAYER ONE

ReadyPlayerOne_660

“So now the polar ice caps are melting, sea levels are rising, and the weather is all messed up. Plants and animals are dying off in record numbers, and lots of people are starving and homeless. And we’re still fighting wars with each other, mostly over the few resources we have left.”

A great example of one of my favourite genres, soon to be a movie directed by Steven Spielberg. A sequel is in the works as well, so I guess I’m not the only one to enjoy dystopias. But what’s fun about reading about a future filled with carnage and inhumanity? I guess we’re all just voyeurs… Better to read about it than to live through it. Ummm, oh wait a minute… it’s a pretty accurate depiction of our reality: the polar ice caps ARE melting, sea level ARE rising, the weather IS all messed up, plants and animals ARE dying off in record numbers, lots of people ARE starving and homeless. and we’re embroiled in wars that the politicians tell us are to protect human rights but are really about the few resources we have left. Justin… sunny ways? Wake up buddy.
