In the year 2525 came out in 1968
The overriding theme, of a world doomed by its passive acquiescence to and over dependence on its own overdone technologies

https://youtu.be/1FgSmdfRUus

Eve of Destruction came out in 1965

https://youtu.be/I98KeKV_F9g

A protest song. References social issues of its period, including the assassination of John F. Kennedy, the Vietnam War, the draft, the threat of nuclear war, the Civil Rights movement, turmoil in the Middle East, and the American space program.

Both songs came out during the Vietnam era.

So far we have survived along with the prediction in 1970 that we were headed for another Ice Age and the world would run out oil.

sorry just thought provoking distraction as I ponder our very messed up current events....

And then there is the short story "The Machine Stops" that describes people living in little underground rooms reading their little "blue screens," like cell phones, tablets and no real face-to-face interacting with others.

I get it, I live it. However this is a hobbyist toy engine forum. To me this is a nice place to interact with others to forget the problems of today. To relive the cheap thrills of the past. But that's just my perception. Just trying to look at the upside as time goes on. That's just my perception of this forum. Mark

It’s a post that was started in the off topic forum. It’s ok to rant once and a while.

I think you are seeing strange things just as I with the news media and all the programming. The media is owned by 6 companies. We no longer have independent news, and what we had even before still was controlled. I pay no attention to the news any longer. This includes even Fox News.

Do you remember this one?



And may be this one holds some truth in it?

Fred and Mark those video clips both got a good belly laugh from me! Good stuff!

No one here has gotten on the New rules for flying from the FAA but over on the Drone Swarm page there are all sorts of conspiracies and red neck rationale. Personally, I don’t condone what the former CeO has said or done, but the commercial is funny 3 years later: I wanna pizza, and I want it NOW!
