Life in the Year 1999

 

As predicted in the year 1967. Basically a glorified commercial for Philco-Ford, it does reflect the optimism of that time that technology would make life better.  Such predictions at that time normally thought technology would change rapidly while our social relationships would remain static.  Attempting to peer into the future is always a fools effort, since we are all children of our time, even those of us who are highly critical of our time.  The past is a different country and the future is an unknown country that we make day by day by our choices.
