->Well, [[Theatre/AllsWellThatEndsWell all’s well that ends well.]] Though that’s easy for Shakespeare to say -- he’ll be around for another millennium. But what of our own millennium? will it all end well? No one of course can know, but that of course doesn’t stop anyone from guessing. And the nature of these predictions always revolve around the usual suspects: salvation and/or self–satisfaction. With that in mind, I humbly add my own prophecy of what the dawn of the new millennium shall bring forth: one thousand more years of the same, old crap. -->--'''Jose Chung''', ''{{Series/Millenium}}''

->If they ever make a film about the recession, they’re going to struggle for “the great speech” scene. That bit when Michael Collins demands of his audience ''“who will take my place?”'' or in ''Film/IntoTheStorm2009'' where Brendan Gleeson delivers a stirring rendition of Churchill’s ''“we will fight them on the beaches”'' speech...Newspapers seldom print whole speeches these days, so they are typically anchored around vacuous sound bytes. News channels are so busy rushing to get to the celebrity gossip that we get [[ViewersAreGoldfish an entire political address condensed down to a word]] -- arguably the greatest orator of our times (though, to echo above I’d suggest [Obama] may be good, but he’s ''“no [[UsefulNotes/JohnFKennedy Jack Kennedy]]”'' or even UsefulNotes/RonaldReagan) has his speeches condensed down to single ambiguous words/concepts like “hope” and “change”.

->The Cold War is dead and gone. Indeed, the entire apparatus of {{the future }}is long since gone, and has in fact quietly disappeared into the rear view mirror.

->The Cold War is dead and gone. Indeed, the entire apparatus of {{the future }}is long since gone, and has in fact quietly disappeared into the rear view mirror. Time memorably spent the tail end of 2009 declaring the aughts to have been the “worst decade ever,” and while this should be taken [[WorstWhateverEver as Comic Book Guy style hyperbole with periods after every word]], the case was compelling enough. A decade long war on terror culminated in a massive financial crash and the growing realization that electing [[UsefulNotes/BarackObama a black dude]] President of the United States [[FakeUltimateHero was not actually going to fix everything.]]

->Globalization, as defined by rich people like us, is a very nice thing. You are talking about the Internet, you are talking about cell phones, you are talking about computers. This doesn't affect two-thirds of the people of the world. -->-- '''UsefulNotes/JimmyCarter'''
