What kind of future are we blindly marching towards? If humans are just another stepping stone along the path to a greater evolution then will we eventually lose our value and be superceded by something new?
Some writers portray a bleak future where the despondent masses are treated like cattle, having become an unwanted burden to the techno-military elite. Others see humans searching like rats for scraps in the ruins of cities in the aftermath of economic collapse or nuclear war.
Our future will be what we make of it. However, if clear thinking and careful planning can overcome the destructive potential of blind greed, then perhaps we can look forward to a rewarding future.
