There is a difference between the kind of future you think we will have, and the kind we might have, and the kind we should have, and the kind we want to have.The difference is in the power you have to affect change. And I think the power you actually have is greatly affected by how much power you think you have--in reality, we have far more power over the future than we think we do. How much power we think we have is articulated in our descriptions of the future. So--might we change our view of how much power we have, by changing how we talk about it? By changing "the future will be like..." to "the future should be like..."?
