Cautionary tales: dystopian wisecracks


The Pixar lamp, all grown up

It’s probably a good idea to start the new year with a general goal of keeping civilization from slipping into a wretched dystopian hellscape. The good people at Ink Tank have compiled a few apt observations from famous dystopian novels to help us keep our eye on the ball.

A couple of my favorites:

“It’s only because of their stupidity that they’re able to be so sure of themselves.”

The Trial Franz Kafka

“Ignoring isn’t the same as ignorance, you have to work at it.”

The Handmaid’s Tale — Margaret Atwood
