Men who wrote about the future

The Future - photobucket

One of the most well known seers was Nostradamus.  He is still much debated and his predictions variously interpreted.  H.G. wells depicted the future in his books of fiction like the time machine. 
One of the most outstanding predictions is found in the Fable by Aesop “The ant and the grasshopper”  The fable concerns a grasshopper that has spent the warm months singing while the ant worked to store up food for winter.  When the winter season arrives, the grasshopper finds itself dying of hunger and begs the ant for food.  When he is asked why he had sung and dance all summer he had no answer.  He is then rebuked for his idleness and advised to enjoy dancing during the winter. 
This philosophy fly’s in the face of the Apostle Paul’s admonition: “Them that decide not to work don’t eat.”
This is abhorrent to the philosophy of many today for they take for what they consider to be a more benevolent view point by punishing those who work by taking from them what they have earned by hard labor and give it to the indolent.
This is the basis for the welfare system in the USA to day.  Couple that with the interpretation of all humans are created equal and so we should open our borders to all and give them equal rights with the citizenry.
While this has been declared only in part by the proponents of this system of belief soon they will come out and declare freedom for all.
As they march their signs will declare, “Let them in” and their song will be “We are the world,” let them in, let them in.  The refrain will be, “give them full rights”, “give them full rights.” 
As a rebuke to the admonitions found in the book of Proverbs; The first proverb admonishes, "Go to the ant, you sluggard! Consider her ways and be wise, which having no captain, overseer or ruler, provides her supplies in the summer, and gathers her food in the harvest"  
 Later, in a parallel saying of Agur, "The insects figure among the 'four things that are little upon the earth but they are exceeding wise. The ants are a people not strong, yet they provide their food in the summer."
The Walt Disney studio created an animated story depicting the Ant and the Grasshopper where the grass hopper laughs at the working class and just sits and enjoys his liberty.  Then later when he is in need, the ants rush out and share with him their everything.
This is being acted out in every day life where some ride while others push. This philosophy will continue until the ants refuse to be taken advantage of and refuse to follow the madness of the leaders.
But come now we all know this will never happen for we have given the Grasshopper the key to the money chest.
