Welcome To The Dystopian Future We Were Warned About!

Posted by Sean Robertson |

When it comes to famous dystopian futures in literature, most people point to George Orwell and his dreary 1984 or even the allegory-laced tale of Animal Farm

But who remembers Ray Bradbury?
Ray Bradbury is one of the most revered and widely-read science fiction writers of all time. His stories are famous for emphasizing the human element, making them all relatable to the reader, regardless of whether they’re set on Earth, Mars, or some other planet, past, present, or future.

However, since Bradbury is such a well-known science fiction writer, most don’t think of him as a writer of political commentary—but one of his most popular books is the exact kind of social commentary that should have him talked about in the same breath as Orwell.

Have you ever read Fahrenheit 451?

It’s an incredible story about a dystopian future in which emotions are outlawed and anything that can elicit emotion or create independent thought—like art or literature—is rounded up and burned.

It’s incredible, and if you’ve never read it, do yourself a favor and consider it.

It’s become more poignant than ever.

Welcome To Your Authoritarian Dystopia

If you’re wondering why we’re talking about Bradbury and his seminal work, it’s because life is starting to imitate art in an unexpected and horrifying way.

In Fahrenheit 451, the government has numerous tools to keep people in line. The firemen don’t put fires out; ironically, they start them. These elite squads are responsible for burning all illegal items, including books and works of art.

On the societal end, the government gives everyone four walls of tv screens and inner-ear radios, keeping people’s minds occupied with drivel so they can’t rise up and fight back,

Lastly—and most relevant to our discussion today—the government uses robotic dogs that hunt down offenders and kill them by lethal injection.

The way Bradbury describes them is absolutely terrifying.

“The Mechanical Hound slept but did not sleep, lived but did not live in its gently humming, gently vibrating, softly illuminated kennel back in a dark corner of the firehouse … Light flickered on bits of ruby glass and on sensitive capillary hairs in the nylon-brushed nostrils of the creature that quivered gently, gently, gently, its eight legs spidered under it on rubber-padded paws.”

As terrifying as these mechanical creatures are, we thought that they were safely confined to the realm of fiction…but we were wrong.

During this pandemic, in order to combat the crisis, some governments around the world are taking their cues directly from Bradbury’s nightmarish future and unleashing actual robot dogs on their populations. These new machines have one directive: to keep tabs on those breaking social distancing regulations.

There is now video footage of these four-legged terrors patrolling Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park in Singapore. They’re there to “remind” citizens to keep up safe social distancing measures.

The robots, all named Spot, will be patrolling gardens and nature reserves in order to keep the population under constant watch, ensuring that all government ordinances are followed…for the safety of the people, of course.

Here’s where it gets scary…

The creepy robots will be broadcasting a recorded message to park visitors, reminding them to observe safe social distancing measures.

Reminders Today – DEATH Tomorrow?

If that’s not bad enough, the robots are also fitted with cameras that will help city officials estimate how many people are going to the parks.

One of the tech firms involved in the development of the robots claims that the cameras will NOT be tracking park goers, nor will they have facial recognition capabilities or the ability to collect personal data…

But we all know the truth, right?

If there is a camera and link to the internet, we know that anybody can implement a program to do exactly that.

This is just the beginning. For now, these robots are patrolling parks as reminders…

But how long until they’re retrofitted for something more nefarious? How long until some governments see how well the program works and say, “maybe we can put them in cities around the world to help patrol for crime?”

How long until the robots are given crime-fighting capabilities by arming them with actual weapons?

If you don’t think that can or will happen, then you don’t understand the lengths people will go to keep power over others.

If you find yourself staring down the muzzle of one of these “dogs” someday, don’t say we didn’t warn you.

Welcome to the future…

You’re not going to love it here.



Other Bits n Pieces

The elites get richer and we lose our jobs & future prospects

All that the $trillions in rescue bailouts/stimulus are doing is making the wealthy elites and the large corporations whole on their bad bets, while simultaneously making them richer by deforming stock prices higher. And what do the rest of us get? Lost jobs. A promise of a measly $1,200 check that few have yet to receive. Shattered prospects. Those who have pillaged our system are filling their pockets before it collapses.

I warned that our economic bubble would burst and that we would plunge into a nightmarish economic collapse.  Now it has happened, and it turns out that fear of COVID-19 was the “black swan event” that triggered the collapse.  The ironic thing is that COVID-19 is not even close to the worst thing that is going to happen to us.  But it was more than enough to topple our incredibly fragile economic system, and now tens of millions of Americans are deeply suffering.  

Americans have already seen their constitutional rights brutally compromised as many state governments continue to lock residents down.

If one app being developed by leftist university researchers sees the light of day, there is simply no turning back.

Owning a firearm is a major responsibility. In fact, there are three major responsibilities that an individual needs to take on when purchasing a firearm: learning how to use it properly, knowing how to maintain it so it will last a long time, and storing it so that only people who are authorized can access it.

 Let’s focus on the last of those three.

 There are many families who keep firearms in the home and tell their children they are not allowed to touch any of them under any circumstance. While this may be a good policy (although it’s also critical to teach your children how to handle firearms as well), it may not go far enough to ensure everyone's safety...
