Two thousand one hundred and…

…something.

Something will happen in the future. That’s for sure. We won’t get to see what, we can only pretend to imagine a scenario or two or three or…

It was a good imagination exercise, where each had the chance to express what he dreams about.

The small group in which I was assigned came to a common agreement that technology will shape the minds of those who want to learn about the past. And the history is written by the winners, as we all well know. But what if there will be more versions to pick from? Each will tell a similar, but different story. Unless someone will hack the system and will let only one version exist. And then, what will the history look like?

Wouldn’t it be fun to see that it was forged, as it is today on so many events that took place?

Life changes behind bars

Reading about the WW2 german prisons, I had ‘high’ expectations from the former prison that we went to visit. Mostly reffering to the treatments applied and the ‘housing’ conditions. A huge change, a different approach, but still based on wrong and immoral reasons.

When it comes to the reason(s) why some get behind bars, how those moments change their whole existance, how it affects all around them like a domino game, at least let the man be guilty of something! Those who got there will forever hate the system. Or themselves.

All in all, a prison is a prison, and those who don’t belong them shouldn’t be there. That’s one reason why the changes that took place in Eastern Europe have made the world a bit better.
