Written over sixty years ago, this Bradbury piece is almost hauntingly relevant. 'The Pedestrian' paints a bleak picture of a future society where social interaction, human bonding and connecting with nature are all replaced by flickering screens as the main, nay only, form of entertainment. Sound familiar? What similarities do you see in this portrayal of the future and how we live today? Do you think we will ever reach this level of disconnection from each other and nature?
