I've seen the future and it is Idiocracy.
Let's hope I'm wrong. More specifically, we should hope that Mike Judge's film Idiocracy isn't prophetic. It is however, a good (not great, but interesting) movie, so check it out.
For me, the term "idiocracy" is now becoming an indictment I use to label any event or trend that seems to be bringing civilized society to ruin. Let's give it a try: Lindsay Lohan gets arrested for DUI again, and it's front page news? That's idiocracy. Try it yourself, it's fun (though depressing, too).
