I feel like the two part Deep Space Nine episode Past Tense should be required viewing. It’s set 10 years from now in 2024 (19 years from the original air date of the episode), and it looks like a possible future. A very possible future.

Everyone who is jobless, homeless, people without any ID, and other similar people were automatically put up in crowded and walled “Sanctuary Districts” and forgotten by everyone outside in the slightly more idyllic world.
I can say that at the rate we’re going that sooner or later we might see something like that. Maybe, maybe not. But as the problems we face now compound and grow over the next decade it is a foggy possibility. And that is disturbing. Because far too few will then care, and those who do care, among them will be people who don’t do much if anything about it.

I dunno, maybe my imagination is going wild, or maybe I might be paranoid. Maybe I don’t have enough faith in the decency of people in power. Any of those are accusations I could be guilty of, but only the latter one would I hold my ground on because I don’t trust people in power as far as I could walk onto their front yards before the secret service are taking my prints.
