Things that keep me up at night.

So, I was watching Star Trek: The Next Generation (yeah, I'm a nerd) and the episode opened with the crew on the holodeck where they were re-enacting Cyrano, and it got me thinking about the future and what they would revere as classics -- and that gave me a small panic attack.  What if the future was nothing like the quasi-utopia that Gene Roddenberry envisioned, but a semi-dystopia spawned from the mind of the "average" person where masterpieces of literature as we know them are replaced by pop-fiction and the heroes of tomorrow re-enact scenes from Twilight?
