How to Understand How Things Ever Got This Bad

For the record, my third novel, An Unwelcome Quest, is available for pre-order. I should point out that the blurb for An Unwelcome Quest contains some minor spoilers for Spell or High Water. The new book comes out February 10th, and I am quite proud of it. I’ll post the cover design when it is finalized.

As always, thanks for using my Amazon Affiliate links (USUKCanada).

Final line of panel 3 is one of the most tragically true statements I've ever heard.

Technology was supposed to set us free but instead it made it harder to escape.

Indeed.

Recalling that the dream of an idyllic future promised in science fiction was usually a socialist one, and we can thank the soviets for ruining that dream for us in the 20th century...

I just died a little (more) inside.

Husky, hair guys in speedos... Yuck. Jenkins might do his swimwear justice if he opted for a 1940's naval diving suit.

''I can see why you wanted something else to think for you".
It is funny because it is true.

There was an ad that showed a devastated city, ground to a halt, with drivers and pedestrians running into things or just stopped while they deal with slow transmission speeds. The implication, hilariously false, was that if they could only get faster wireless, they could finish their transmission, and *hang up*.
Speeds keep getting faster, and yet it won't be long before an invading army could take this nation, from sea to shining sea, by releasing amusing cat videos any time it looked like someone would pick up a weapon.
As for convenience, years ago, I saw a man pacing back and forth on a switchback of a beautiful mountain trail, on a sunny summer Saturday afternoon. I watched in amazement until he finished his call, and explained that if he didn't take a call from work, he'd lose his job.
Most employers pretend they want their employees to be healthy, but this is absolute proof that they want no such thing.
We are toilet paper to them, and technology makes it more convenient and inexpensive for them to use us...If we're not at the office, they don't even have to pay us for our work.
