Another 'how 2000ad predicted the future thread'
« on: 17 May, 2018, 05:49:35 pm »
Just got to part 2 of Strontium Dog: The Final Solution as part of my intermittent prog slog.  Reading the text from the first page:

"New Britain 2180.  A nation divided.  On one side, the norms, the ordinary people, the ones with jobs, homes hopes and aspirations ... And on the other, mutants, the genetically impure, the ones with hovels, welfare vouchers and crushed dreams ... the ones with nothin.  A nation which has been ruled by the political right for as long as anyone can remember ... A nation where extremists prosper, and decent men mind their own business .."

I think the digits were in the wrong order  - 2180 - 2018.  Otherwise, scarily prescient.

What are "jobs"?
