From politics to celebrities to religion, western culture has a big outrage problem right now. Any news that comes out must have us angry at someone for something, and if you aren’t always angry, well then, are you really informed?
As human beings, we’re fascinated about the future. We write books about it, make movies about it, like to speculate about it, and many would even like a chance to meet themselves at an old age, or see what their great-grandchildren are like when they’re grown. Among those interested parties is the Wall Street Journal, which had slightly future-themed issue to celebrate the 125th anniversary of the paper. As part of that, they invited supposed top dogs in various industries to talk about the future, such as Mark Zuckerburg and . . . er . . . Taylor Swift. Tyra Banks (host of America’s Next Top Model) wrote about the future of beauty.
