The Kali Krew Presents: A Glimpse into the Future

If science fiction has shown us anything it has shown us that the future can be wondrous with new technologies, systems and cultures. It has also shown us what can happen when power falls into the wrong hands, the weaponry that can be misused and the viruses that can bring humanity to the brink of extinction.

It shows us that what looks like a utopia for some is a dystopia for others when laws are enacted that only benefit some to the detriment of others.

But it also shows us through these bleak and sometimes hopeless settings there is also hope. For corruption there is resistance, for the hand that holds you down there is one that lifts you up. For darkness there is light.

We also had a debate about The Lottery by Shirley Jackson. Is it folk horror? Is it post-apocalyptic? Is it dystopian? Save us from our confusion in the comments down below!

  1. I go for folk horror for “The Lottery.” That’s because Jackson gave it a veneer of tradition, referring to old equipment and the like. Also because we weren’t allowed to do it any longer in my home town.

    • I lean toward traditional as well. It also felt like it could be post-apocalyptic, too, though, because it somewhat gives the impression of something that was clung to after some ‘big’ event.

      You mean your town doesn’t let you anymore? Some people, lol
