The future is an undiscovered country much like Shakespeare’s concept of ‘death’, however unlike Shakespeare’s concept of ‘death’ it contains many more blinking lights and primary coloured uniforms. So let’s dismiss that soothsayer, put away the tarot cards and jump into our gentlemanly time machine to have a look at what the future has in store for us.
The gentlemanly future is much like the early 1960s except for the fact that women and non-white people will have a place in it. This Utopia, made with sturdy cardboard and LED lights will be a beacon of hope for the Galaxy.
Now of course the future isn’t going to be all spaceships and aliens with pointed ears. Like much of our history there will be ups and downs in the future too. Our automated door Utopia will eventually fail after monkey’s seize the opportunity to overthrow the birds and take control of earth.
But no matter how many post apocalyptic, monkey dominated phases our world has to go through, we gentleman will always find a way to rebuild civilisation and create robots that will one day revolt and destroy us all.
The machine uprising will last a long time but we gentlemen shouldn’t fret. As long as you can get the daily broadsheet, enough tobacco for your pipe and enough scotch for your glass we can just wait it out until the robots become neurotic and unstable.
After the decline of the robots society will have to go through the motions again. Of course this means re-building society from the ground up, starting with agriculture, primarily of the tobacco and barley plants.
Our expansive computers here at The Gentlemen have computed that soon after the rebirth of civilisation there will come the expansive computers that we utilise today.
Therefore there is no need for concern when it comes to the future. Gentlemen will always come out on top when up against robots, aliens or Woody Allen. And no matter how many apocalypses we have to go through, we gentleman will take charge of rebuilding society, culture and distilleries the world over.
So there you have it.
