Radio Philosophy #052 – LOVE OF THE FUTURE.

Why is it we all love the future so much?
We all know it has a huge disadvantage:
The future can never begin.
As long as future wants to remain future
it cannot happen in the present.
Waiting for it will be love’s labours lost.
So where do we seek refuge
as we look towards the future?

    Groucho Marx said “Why should I do anything for posterity? What has posterity ever done for me”? (Was hat die Zukunft je für Mich gemacht)?
