Why is it that so many authors and filmmakers love to depict deteriorating futures in which our daily lives become worse and worse? And why are we so entertained by franchises that promote these themes? Understandably, this is more dramatic than a bright, no-worries future, and such stories teach us moralistic lessons about how we should uphold and never surrender our virtues so, hopefully, we don’t allow such dark futures ruled by greed and hate to come into existence.
