Oh, because H.G. Wells was clearly just aiming for a casual stroll through the park with “Things to Come.” Forget joy and rainbows; it’s a masterpiece about the United Nations gracefully planting seeds of destruction. Wells is practically throwing a subtlety party, showcasing the UN’s demise in the most subversive, inconspicuous manner. War? Oh, that’s just a subtle touch, a nuanced choice in the grand garden of international relations. Can’t you see the delicate brushstrokes of destruction? Subversive genius, really.
