Why Hearts and Minds?
“Hearts and minds… Far more effective than bombs and guns…” — Continuum
I have been watching 6 episodes of Continuum so far. In the future Mega-Corporations has taken over the role of nations and rule all without insight. A small group of rebels travel back in time make sure that future does not become like this. I like Science Fiction that makes me think. And now they started to whip up a message in this one too.
We need to hold everyone who plunder the world for their own personal or corporate gain accountable.
It’s time for a new society. How can we get this message across to those who don’t want to listen? By hiding it in stories like this 🙂
“If you want to burrow a message into a human mind. Work it into a story” — Jonathan Gottschall
I blog more about this in my 2 other blogs:
Shaping the Future
Continuum is also about shaping your own future. There is a META discussion about this in the show. How the time travel perspective can make you think about shaping your own future. It is all very interesting and philosophical. It presses all my buttons as a Futurist (I am two parts Future-Philosopher, one part Strategist, one part Network Ninja and one part Change-Agent).
Do we have any Contingency plans for our future? Do you?
