The Obsolete Man

Because of the stifling intolerance and willful ignorance of “cancel culture” raging across the planet, this classic episode of The Twilight Zone is particularly appropriate to view again.

You walk into this room at your own risk. Because it leads to the future.

Not a future that will be, but one that might be.

This is not a new world. It is simply an extension of what began in the old one.

It has patterned itself after every dictator who has ever planted the ripping imprint of a boot on the pages of history since the beginning of time.

It has refinements. Technological advances and a more sophisticated approach to the destruction of human freedom. But like every one of the super states that preceded it, it has one iron rule — “Logic is an enemy and truth is a menace.”

This is Mr Romney Wordsworth. In his last 48 hours on Earth. He is a citizen of the state, but will soon have to be eliminated because he is built out of flesh and because he has a mind. Mr Romney Wordsworth who will draw his last breaths in The Twilight Zone
