1969 Video describes "the future" - the internet...

This is just so funny... They got the internet about right, and they do admit that the Central Banks will be right in the middle of our personal biz-ness...
But they failed to foretell the destruction of the family, and in this fantasy world there is a housewife and mother who shops at her leisure, and a button-down Daddy who pays the bills, the taxes, the mortgage, the car payment... All those "normal" parts of American life...
Mom does not go check on the kids or play with them, she sits at her monitor and watches them in secret... Well, if Janet Napolitano is "Mom" I guess they got that one right. They predict email, but fail to envision a keyboard, even though we already had typewriters. They close with a comment about a "communal service agency" - I guess they mean the condescending IT guys who begin every conversation with "That can't happen." lol!

When will everyone understand that we live in a

planned society. If not for government we would not have most of the toys and goodies we have today. Most of our "advancements" are because of government planning and intervention. All these things are not to make life better but to make better slaves. And people just keep eating it up.

a phone with a TV screen

When I was in grade school, we had a guest from the telephone company come to our class. He spoke of this. Of course I was so young that I remembered it as a phone with a TV screen so you could see who you were talking with. I was probably 7 or 8 yrs old. He said it was coming out very soon. Every once in a while, I'd remember that day, and wonder what happened to the phones with TV screens. Of course it was to come decades later.

Probably another agency that has existed for years, that we don't know about...

I feel like I am watching Buck Rogers. Hahaha Kind of weird that they predicted this. Guess they knew in advance. But KNOBS on the computers?
