In 1973 I saw a sci-fi movie called "Soylent Green." Now considered a classic, the movie stars Charlton Heston and Edward G. Robinson (in his final film).
"Soylent Green" depicts a horrifying future for New York with illness, food shortages and misery. Most inhabitants suffer badly while a privileged elite are comfortable behind guarded fortresses.
The year depicted in the film is... 2022. Think about that for a moment.
