The Future


The Future

First, let me suggest you watch a movie: Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior (1981), a Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer motion picture, starring Mel Gibson. It's the film I have referred to as "having good-looking Australians running around shooting people for gasoline.'' It's a fairly good film, and lots of fun. It most certainly provides a very different view of the future than I have suggested.

You could also take a look at the World Future Society homepage, at http://www.wfs.org/ which includes links to The Futurist magazine, and reviews of books about the future.

Resources for the Future, at http://www.rff.org/ is a policy center with numerous research areas. It would be a good place to go to see specific topics about the future.

The Millenium Project, which is based at the American Council for the United Nations University is another site with a wide array of topics. It can be found at http://www.acunu.org/ on the internet.
