I've become very disillusioned with current sci-fi movies. They've become very commercial, short-sighted, dumbed-down, and do not tackle complex issues. They're not even fun. But the older ones are really amazing. I recommend the following to start with:

Soylent Green (1973)
Capricorn One (1978)
Starship Troopers (1987)

Anybody else reading Yuval Noah Harari and getting scared of the choices we made?
I'm listening to a podcast with Sam Harris and Yuval Noah Harari. It's very depressing how much we understand about the world and how little seems to be changing.

Mark Zuckerberg and his team will continue to allow the social network to be a haven for fake news, hoaxes, threats, and much, much worse.
