I was answering questions as a robot lady from the future when someone asked "What's one thing from the early 21st century you're really glad has disappeared from the planet?".

And this fell out.

"I donít know what possessed you people to think stripping the Earth of all its resources, breeding like ants, and concentrating all your wealth in a tiny percentage of the population was a good idea. Most of the story of the 21st century was cleaning up the colossal mess you guys left behind."

edit. Apparently my imagery was not subtle enough and this can be read as a "hey Republicans are awesome" piece. FIX'D.

Yeah, the subtitle makes it less ambiguous.

I have no issue with subtlety, but without the "what are you glad has disappeared?" context, it needed some explication.

I sure hope that's the story of the 21st century.

It's either that or "pretty much everyone died and huge swathes of the environment went extinct". I'm hoping to not live in that future.

I love this. The republican elephant looks powerful and strong and love the Genesis 1:22 reference.

There we go. I think the change to the ruined Earth and the addition of text about "a plague of locusts" should make my meaning clear.

Hmm. Guess I'll have to finesse it a bit more to make it clear that "an elephant consuming everything in sight and multiplying with no limits" is not intended as a good thing.
