Suppose, for a moment, that your “future self” could write a letter to your “present-day self” and offer pointers navigating what’s to come. While it would make an interesting book – there’s so much to cover – it also makes a pretty interesting column.

Although such a letter could be “personal” there are many aspects of it that explains much of what’s going on in society today.  Why young people are not planning to have children and why – when you “run the numbers” a kind of world-wide Venezuela seems more possible than not.

If you can image the Dark Ages – and throw in some tech and the digital analog to “feudal lords.”  That kind of thing is sobering, to the extreme.

After a few headlines and some charts, of course.
