The results of this election will impact me and those of my generation for the rest of our lives (especially with somewhere on the order of 3-ish Supreme Court justices hanging in the balance).
THIS is the future I want to live in: the future of the 1964 World’s Fair and ASTRO BOY and THE JETSONS and TOMORROWLAND and STAR TREK. An egalitarian future of cooperation, global unity, peace, and plenty for EVERYONE. I’ve wanted it since I was 9 years old, and I have never wavered in that desire. I saw a glimpse of it during the worldwide celebrations of the Millennium. And all I’ve seen over the last 15 years (post 9/11) has it slipping further and further out of reach.
We are capable of so much more than this.
