WELCOME TO THE FUTURE by Steve Savage "King of the Beasts"











ELOI (above) and MORLOCKS from "THE TIME MACHINE"

It has become increasingly more apparent that 19th Century London born science fiction author, H.G. Wells, author of The Time Machine, was a much more prophetic visionary than previously thought.

We have become a people symbolically divided into "Eloi" and "Morlocks."

One has only to watch any current TV Quiz Show, e.g., "Are You Smarter Than A Fifth Grader," "1 Versus 100," "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire," etc., to see how far the general population has "dumbed down" into laziness, ennui and apathy.

We are now a nation of automatons, blank playback machines that spout engrammic drivel, false original thought that has been programmed into us through repetitive messaging via the media. At the sound of the "Sirens," we morph into "Pavlovian Eloi" and mindlessly march toward the fate the "Morlocks" have prepared for us.

There is a pervasive miasma of Doom that has infected our very Will to Survive. Somehow we believe that it's all going to mercifully end in a "George Carlinesque Pyrotechnic Show of Complete Obliteration."

Unfortunately, the fate reserved for us is "not to end with a bang but a whimper."
