Life magazine put out an article in their Nov 11, 1957 issue titled: Tomorrow's Life Today, Man's New World: Part II. Read the article.
A month later in Life's Dec 2, 1957 issue they published some letters to the editors regarding the Man's New World article. One of these letters was written by none other than Edward Abbey.
Sirs:Just finished looking at the technological nightmare being prepared for our "tomorrow".
If any plastic-housed, gadget-loaded, button-pushing, weekend-jaunting imbecile comes roaring along over my back yard on his rotor-motored flying platform he is going to be shot down without ceremony and without apology.
