Where Were the Futurists Before This Happened?


Pilgrim on a Long, Long Journey

I thought some people made excellent money as futurists. Where are there “priceless” projections now?

In some ways a good CEO who can sense where things are going is a valuable part of a corporation. I don’t know that anyone saw this coming. This comes under the Gumpian perspective that, “Life is full of surprises.”

Our fiction writers sometimes back into scenarios that have some degree of connection to possible future events. Michael Crichton’s Andromeda Strain was such a novel that in some ways mirrors this novel virus. In that book it was an extraterrestrial, deadly microorganism that got loose when an American, research satellite crashed in Arizona. Not surprisingly Crichton had a medical degree to add to the skill of his fertile mind. He died at 66 and we will miss him.

So we were blind-sided and our society has changed dramatically. Stay well and vaccinated.
