Sounding the Bottom of the After-times
It occurs to me that it's some time since I posted a poll...

Poll #1926963 Futurama

In 100 years time, people will think that this generation:

Lived through a very interesting period and I wish I could have been around then
Screwed it up for everyone who came after, the bastards
Got their knickers in a twist about nothing, bless them
Were delightfully quaint in their fashion and technology. Gotta love Oil Punk!
Were labouring in the general ignorance that preceded the discovery of the One Truth in 2068
Some other answer, which I will explain in the comments.

My real fear for the future is that people will look back at us in the late twentieth / early twenty-first century and think that we were leading a life of unparalleled luxury and security, but didn't appreciate the fact or do enough to ensure that these conditions would continue.

I ticked the 'labouring in general ignorance' option in this spirit - I don't think there'll ever be 'One Truth', but I do think we are collectively swimming in a morass of short-sighted illusions.

Of course, what I want future generations to think is that we strove nobly to advance their rights and freedoms. But our efforts on that front seem to me half-hearted at best.

All of the above! Why should this era be different from any other eras?

Were woefully ignorant of the fact that they were living alongside some of the greatest thinkers and writers in the English language.
