I just watched Dune a few weeks ago. I've never read the book but the movie had concepts that were very similar to the world we live in now. Which is a bit weird since it's written for the future. Will nothing really change except technology? It was an interesting thought so I decided to write about it.
It's maddening since all the mess in Dune is created by greedy governments. Much like our greedy governments right now. Governments have no interest in making the lives of other countries better, and they don't. And why should they? they don't get elected by other countries.
The only way countries mutually benefit is through international trade. And the governments in Dune completely butcher those principles. Nevertheless, This was an interesting piece for me to write and think about.
If you haven't watched the movie yet, I suggest you do. Pretty Amazing. Plus Zendaya is in it so that's a massive plus in and of itself.
