American Eloi

Last night I decided to take it down a notch and watch some TV. Disappointed The Middle wasn’t on, I surfed the various channels until I came across a movie I believe I first saw on WGN-TV’s Family Classics with Frazier Thomas years ago. The movie was The Time Machine, a 1960 sci-fi film based on the 1895 novel of the same name by H. G. Wells in which a man from Victorian England builds and uses a time machine to travel into the future. Rod Taylor starred as H.G. Wells.

As I watched the movie, one scene in particular grabbed my attention:


“books”
YouTube Video

Is it me, or does the world of the Eloi, the post-humans H.G. Wells encountered in his travels, also ring a bell with you here in 2012 America?
