In the future men and women will wear the same makeup and hair styles. Soon pets will have collars that allow them to talk to humans. Children will be selected from vending machines. I will finally get my personal helicopter. There will be no need for cars because public transportation will be perfect.
In the future doctors will have two-year associate degrees and teachers will live in fear of malpractice suits. Everyone will have live-in lawyers. The rich will wear tattered jeans. The poor will wear sparkling uniforms. Horses will attend track meets as spectators. Honest citizens will be vilified and criminals will be held in high esteem. Barbershop quartets will perform rap music and we will all speak Chinese. And everything will contain analog computer chips.
In short, the future will be so much like the present that its noisiest authorities will insist on its being described in the superlative degree of comparison only.
