We Have Been Warned

Many authors have seen the writing on the wall and have warned us.  George Orwell is often cited for his vision of a future dystopian society, and many others have written on the same theme.  Aldous Huxley wrote his warning of the destruction of civilization  60 years ago and like Orwell, appears to have been somewhat of a prophet.

    Another good book about the near future is titled, “The Coming Dark Age”, it was written by Roberto Vacca, and translated from the Italian by Dr. John S. Whale, published in 1974 by Anchor Press/Doubleday.

    Here’s a paragraph from page six in the introduction.

    “We cannot know whether future historians will fix on 1960, 1970, or some later date for its beginning; it would seem from many signs that the era of breakdown may have started already. Thus there is nothing absurd in the threefold assumption that, first, an era of disorder and destruction is coming; second, that it is imminent; third, that it will be followed by rebirth. The third assumption has no justification other than the periodic alternation of all things human, which history seems to support.”
