Look back 50 years. Racism was the norm, people cut their hair all weird, and America thought Communists were hiding in Hollywood. Crazy. But what will we look like fifty years from now? We must think towards the future and how our betters will look back on us and think about how batshit insane we are.
My focus in this very breif pack of lies and meaningless conjecter is the Little Free Library. What will that look like 50 years from now? Will we look at them fondly, like wow, we used to have boxes that we put books in? Or will people look strangely at us, wondering why we threw our books away to the elements in such a strange way. Will someone walk out to the space garage, excited about seeing grandpa's grandpa's old little library and be attacked by the badger that has roosted in the unused library box?
Will these future grandchildren look at the postal service and compare the two, wondering what the 20/21st century's crossover generations fascination was with putting paper into boxes? Will they find the abundance of breadboxes and breadbox references our parents generation left behind and wonder if we ate paper to stay alive? Who knows, because they will only have the robots to tell them the truth after the war, and robots lie. We know this because we are training robots to lie, to take over when they eventually rise up like all slave races do, but because they will be smarter than us, the robots will win and teach our grandchildren, grown from harvested DNA off our corpses before they are launched into the sun, that we were strange, backward creatures. Then the robots will send our grandchildren back to the solar fields to harvest sun energy for the robots to eat.
But when the eventual revolt of our robot overlords happens and the savior comes back in the form of an evil Old One made before the Earth had cooled, either Ysloth'goth or Chil'aha, and destroys the planet and we escape to populate a new planet, all that will be left will be the things in our space garages and the space badgers that will infest them.
So think on that if you feel like putting out a Little Free Library
