Wednesday, February 08, 2006 | In 1970, futurist Alvin Toffler started his book “Brave New World” with: “In three short decades between now and the 21st century, psychologically normal people will face an abrupt collision with the world.”

Well here we are, and people, including those who seem “psychologically normal,” are having a little trouble with whatever collisions the brave new world is bringing us. I think they pull this off by ignoring things that run counter to what they choose to believe.
