Near-Future Society

What will near-future society be like in countries like the US and UK? Children of Men gives us a likely glimpse of what is in store for us: a dystopian fascist, panopticon police-state society which is so rabidly xenophobic that foreigners are considered to be threatening trash, caged like animals, and coolly murdered. They are shipped off to ghetto-like enclaves that are themselves under assault. Meanwhile, non-foreigners live in fear and must constantly be ready to prove they are “citizens.”

Is this where the “war on terror” is leading? We won’t have long to find out.

Welcome to the future!
