While thinking about the idea of possible parallel universes I came to the thought that the future is in a way a parallel universe It is impossible to know how or what the future will become Just imagine being a poor peasant back in the Middle Ages and being told that in the future men will walk on the moon or that a person in China will be able to speak to a person in Europe as if they were standing in front of them They would most likely assume the person saying this is mad The future is always in question so I decided to examine the idea of a distopia future as a parallel universe A distopia is basically a utopia perfect world that has absolutely no individualism All privacy is eliminated for the sake of peace and security Although we fiercely defend our privacy today futurists have predicted worlds that enter into this realm of distopia By examining their societies and the trends in cultural change during their times these futurists present definite possibilities of a world without individual freedom Although I have yet to have read it George Orwells 1984 is a novel that is often spoken of when examining the paths our culture is taking In the novel an individual is monitored at all times by big brother a computer that searches for any evidence of social unrest Even thoughts are monitored Any thoughts against society called thought crimes are immediately identified and the person thinking is arrested Examples of this type of monitoring seen today could be government agencies tapping phone lines throughout the nation listening for certain key words indicating terrorist activities or the ability of online hackers to steal a persons identity and use it against the person Irrational fears are stemming from everywhere and leading people to abandon individual privacy for security and stability This trend is steadily increasing throughout the world as time and technology
